Bare-bones Value

This is probably the cheapest place for you to stay next to the Grand Rapids airport. It has what you need: comfy bed, hot shower, fast (and easy to connect to) wifi. It is a bit run down and sometimes a bit loud, but if you don't mind that it is great. It is walking distance to several restaurants and a Meijer. I have stayed here many times on business and plan to stay here in the future.

Better Than Expected

Wanted a clean, economical place to shower and sleep for a weekend getaway but based upon reviews, was somewhat nervous as to what we would find. We were pleasantly surprised and would not hesitate to use the hotel again. Found Front Desk staff to be friendly and professional as they accommodated our requests quickly and with a smile. Although the facility was older, outdated and the bedding looked due for replacement, everything was clean and in working order. It was located a convenient distance from the interstate and easy to find.

Close to MVP Fieldhouse and affordable

I stayed there one night and it was all I needed. The internet connection was slow which was frustrating at times, but other than that it was close to the MVP Fieldhouse which was my biggest priority.

Horrible

I visit the town frequently for personal reasons (not for leisure) and therefor always look for inexpensive options that don't break the bank. I chose this place because of the price but it was a big mistake. Here is my experience over the three day weekend I spend in this hotel, Upon the arrival I noticed that the lobby area was tiny and not very clean. The person behind the counter was not professional, unhelpful and close to being rude. The first thing caught my attention is the smelly hallways. People appear to smoke in their rooms although the place has a “no smoking” policy. The breakfast area appeared to be disgusting so do not bother with a breakfast there. The room appeared okay at first sight for a low cost hotel. But as soon as I started using it I notice how horrible it was. There are no sufficient power outlets in the room. In fact there was only one accessible outlet (you cannot charge your laptop and phone at the same time). The wifi speed is so slow that you cannot do much with it (it takes few minutes to load a webpage). So if you plan to use your laptop for work from this hotel please forget it. Often there is no hot water depending on what time you take a shower. No freg or microwave in the room. The TV is an outdated tube TV. In summary, do not book at this hotel. For the same price you pay here
