Marriott East Lansing at University Place

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was beautiful and they made accommodations for parking even though their structure was out of commission. The rooms were also very modern.

All was good and I will stay again. One thing I would like to see is that there is free parking for the guests. Other than that it was goods

Clean comfortable room. Friendly staff and convenient parking.

Excellent hotel. Clean with great staff and location

I needed a room close to the business I was conducting in East Lansing, and found the Marriott most convenient and available. While four hundred dollars for two nights caused some sticker shock, I found out that room wi-fi AND breakfast were both additional charges. This is even more a problem since NONE of the nearby restaurants was open for breakfast. I travel frequently in the US and abroad and find this to be the opposite of what most hotels offer. I will not consider Marriott when booking a room in the future because of this.

The hotel décor in the lobby area was beautiful! Rooms were updated, clean and very comfortable. Walking distance to a lot of shopping and restaurants. Had some issues getting to our floor (#5) in the elevator by using the key. Other than that, our stay was great!

We came for our anniversary and Katherine at check in was awesome! The room was clean and warm. The hotel is situated close to bars. Downside is no free internet and pay to park.

Had a very nice stay at this Marriott. The rooms were very clean the pool also very clean which is a bonus.

For visiting family, the hotel location was ideal and it would have been an average hotel stay except for two reasons: First, an unpleasant odor came in through the air vents later in the evening. Although the smell remained only for about an hour, it definitely diminished the enjoyment of the room. Second, I had a minor allergic reaction to something in the room, most likely the detergent used on the linens. There are other hotels in the area and we will be choosing them for our next visit.

This hotel had good service and the rooms were clean

I stay at many hotels. The bed was very uncomfortable the carpet was sticky, not soft. I felt the pricd was high for the comfort of the hotel. Also needed to pay for parking which I do not remember it being stated on the web site. It was very close to things in East Lansing.

Very clean, although beginning to show age. Restaurant was great!

I picked the Marriott because of its location - proximity to the MSU campus. The staff is polite and accommodating; and the room is clean and relatively spacious. But I find the bed a bit too soft for my taste. Also there is no mini-bar which i find strange (not that I normally use it). The best pat of the hotel is that it provides complimentary shuttle to the airport.

If you'res staying in East Lansing, the location doesn't get much better! Great walking distance to many bars, restaurants, shops, and campus. Only negative was the $7 they charge you for parking per day.

I stayed at the East Lansing Marriott at University Place while I was in town for the Bar Examination. Its proximity to campus and restaurants was a plus. The rooms themselves were comfortable and relatively quiet, albeit nothing special. There was not much value in the $200+ per night rate, but was an overall good experience.

My husband and I stayed just for one night as a little get away. We chose the location so it would be within walking distance of campus and restaurants. The location couldn't have been more perfect. Just a walk across the street to campus. The staff upon arrival was extremely nice and professional. Quickest check-in ever. The room was very clean. The bathroom was very updated. We would definitely recommend the place.

Room was clean and the location is great for MSU. However, room was too warm. Need to fix thermostat. As a Rewards customer I expected the front desk to provide some sort of discount. They would not.

Good location, friendly staff, allowed me to park my motorcycle under the entrance awning and moved one of their vans to make room for it. Easy walk to football stadium, decent restaurant on site, plenty to do within walking distance.

The Marriott at University Place in East Lansing, Michigan is a good hotel. The hotel provides secure covered parking via an underground lot which is a plus for being located in such a busy area of town. There are several shops and restaurants that surround the hotel and are within walking distance. The hotel itself was nice; the rooms were clean and the hotel staff, friendly. Overall, I would rate this hotel very highly and will reserve another room here on my next trip to East Lansing, MI.

For anyone who will be visiting Michigan State University, this is an ideal location. Many things are withing walking distance, since parking on campus can be a real problem. It was a very quiet facility even though it is located right downtown.
