Creepy & Dirty

We expected a dated place for the low price we were paying. The rooms were clean enough but the hallways smelled badly of stale cigarette smoke and there were so many cobwebs in the less used areas. The breakfast area was clean. We just got a bad vibe as there were men sitting in a truck offering assistance. These men sat in the parking lot for hours both nights we stayed. There were knocks on doors in the middle of the night and we slept with everything locked up tight as a drum and with a chair in front of the door. We expressed our concerns to a friend in law enforcement who looked up information and discovered that people released from prison stay there until they can find something more permanent. I don't have a problem helping out someone down on their luck but I have a huge problem with the number of rapists & child molesters who were also residing here. Granted not everyone is a repeat offender but shouldn't I have had the choice as to whether or not I wanted to risk it. I unknowingly put my family at risk. I paid and chose to stay here knowing that it might be dumpy but I also thought my family would be safe. I am furious that they accept families with this type of offender.

Not what was advertised

The front door has a sign stating that the hotel is compliant with the Michigan State law requiring all hotels to be completely smoke free, but when you open the front door the smell of stale smoke hits you in the face. No extra towels were available, and they didn't have the roll-away bed I requested when I reserved the room, so the fifth person in our group that was registered to stay there would have had to sleep on the floor had we not been able to borrow a cot. Some of the wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling off, there were a couple of tiles missing there as well, and the light above the sink didn't work properly. Breakfast was also a disappointment, with the selection being much narrower than at other hotels of the same rating and cost where I have spent the night. On the bright side, it was right next to the highway, which made for a quick escape.

Cheap, close to Plainfield bus line

Booked this hotel just hours before arriving in GR. Cant beat the price. Late night taxi to get back here from downtown ran us about $22, but this place is right next to a Plainfield bus route stop that will only run you $1.50 to get back downtown. Not terrible!

Better that many reviews

I signed up for the Knights Inn despite the scary reviews because the price was amazing. I was attending a conference downtown at the DeVos Center, but the room prices at the Amway Grande seemed a bit excessive. The room and bathroom were very clean as were the sheets and bedding. New firm mattress on the bed. The room is much larger than many modern hotels and there was a very nice desk to work at and free WiFi. The carpeting throughout the hotel is stained and worn as another reviewer noted, but that was the only appearance piece that really stood out for me. The breakfast has a waffle maker, plain bagels and two kinds of smallish muffins. Fruit Loops and Rice Crispies and Orange Juice complete the menu. There is no decaf coffee which wasn't an issue for me. I did not use it, but the pool and pool area was fairly large and appeared to be in very good condition (actually goes to 8') as opposed to the postage stamp pools I have seen in newer hotels. Kids or lap swimmers could really have a good time. Finally if you need to get around town without a car, there is a bus stop across the street from the hotel that takes you right downtown every 15 minutes during commute hours and every 30 minutes the rest of the day for $1.50. You can also take public transit in from the airport.

Clean and Affordable

The hotel room was clean with new carpet and paint in the hallways. There is only 1 elevator, so it most likely isn't close to your room, but stairs never killed anyone either. Nice, quiet stay with no issues. Was very happy with the convenient location by the highway and the cheap price for a nights stay. On asking the hotel because of previous reviews, they have had no true reported cases of any infestations bed bugs or otherwise in the last 5 years.

Worst Place To Stay

The sheets, comforters and pillow cases where dirty. The bathroom had a 'urine' smell to it and the room had a terrible odor. I don't recommend this hotel at all. Never found the 'free' continental breakfast and the 'free' wifi didn't work! No iron or hairdryer in the room.

Knights INN

The hotel itself wasn't that bad but I would think for the amount I paid for the room I would have at least got a mini fridge or microwave in the room, and the tv only had 7 channels and the hotels free wireless wasn't all the great either I was hardly picking it up.
