GOOD VALUE

I stay there twice a year when I am in Kalamazoo for the toy show. Good for a one night stay. PLENTY OF HANDICAPPED PARKING, good thing.

Good Quick Stop

The people at the hotel was nice and we just needed a place to rest for one night as we were passing through. The hoel room was clean and overall ok for the money.

DO NOT STAY HERE--BED BUGS and NO Refund

DO NOT STAY HERE---BED BUGS BED BUGS BED BUGS! I did not expect this place to be nice, but I also did not expect for myself and my girlfriend to wake up with bites all over us. The management was rude and denied our request for a refund. They said they had a company come out and check for bugs and nothing was found. They would not give me the name of the company so I could confirm. Worst hotel I have ever dealt with.

It has "econo" right in the name...

This is a budget establishment, so you can't expect rose petals. However, the walls are paper thin, so the two couple talking in the next room (who talked ALL night long) made sleeping a challenge. The mattresses and bed covers were aged. The sink and tub had chips out of the enamel, and rust was visible in more than one place. The caulk around sinks, tubs, and other locations were cracked, crumbling, or missing. The carpet looked really old and soiled from countless feet. The window had no screen, making me hesitant to open the window (bugs, security, etc.) The lock on the window was "almost" broken, making it a bit of a puzzle to lock it after I opened it. The room was missing the hair drier. I asked for a new room. It smelled of mildew. It had a hair drier that didn't work. I exchanged it. They provided one that was visibly dirty, and the plug was actually missing on of the electrical prongs. I attempted to check out early by one day and find a nicer hotel. This travel site attempted to make this happen, but the hotel's customer service staff and multiple transfers (30 minutes on hold) eventually said I would have to submit a complaint, which would take about one day to process. I suspect this highly inefficient process was designed to make early check out too much work for working people like me. Here's riddle for you: who carries around glass pints of hard liquor in the back pocket of their shorts at 7:30 in the morning on week days? Answer: multiple guests I observed at the hotel. Is that judgmental of me? On the positive side, friendly staff, good internet, nice new TVs. I didn't use the pool, but dozens of happy sounding kids suggested it was more than acceptable.

Nice big room

Room had recently been work done in it and the dust from the sanding had not been wiped from the door knob in the bathroom or on the nightstand or headboard frame. Take your own pillow when staying here as the pillows are small squares and not conducive to sleeping comfortably. The TV didn't show the picture at first but the desk attendant came and fixed it promptly. For a single night stay, this is a good place to stay for a decent price.

Close to Game

The room had burn marks in shower curtain and smelled like smoke in a non-smoking room. I was very surprised by the the stained carpet and filthy shower.

Just what I was looking for

An inexpensive motel close to downtown Kalamazoo. Stayed one night after visting my daughter at WMU and enjoying the nightlife Kalamazoo has to offer. Will stay again if I plan a trip longer than 1 day.

Quick business trip.

Needed a place quick and off the highway. Met my needs: but no use saying they are no smoking rooms when all I could smell was the smoke. (Called front desk to deodorize it. ). Staff was very friendly and apologetic.
