Old and rusty. Staff super nice and professional

First off, my room looked nothing like the picture. I was in town for an interview and the room had neither an ironing board or an iron and I had to go ask for them. There were multiple boxelder bugs in my room. My second night there I didn't sleep because there were guests in the parking lot outside my hotel room partying next to my rental car and I was worried something would happen to it. The only saving grace for this place is that the staff as very kind and helpful.

I did not have very high expectations for this hotel in the 1st place, so I'm not terribly disappointed. The girl and the front desk was very accommodating and allowed me to check in early, so that was a plus. No bathroom in the lobby, which was odd. No hairdryer in the room. TV reception was poor or non-existent. It was raining pretty hard, so the must have the Dish Network or some other non-cable provider. There was a bug in the room when I arrived - not a huge deal but put some doubt in my head about the cleanliness of the room. Overall, I was just looking for a place to sleep cheaply and this hotel provides that. It could just use some upkeep and the aforementioned hairdryer.

The hotel staff (1 person) was helpless against the loud and drunk people outside our room all night long, and I mean all night. Shouting, banging on doors, cursing. Didn't get any sleep, ruined the next day.

Room was clean, staff was pleasant. Only two towels in a room for four people. Easily resolved.

Hotel room was clean. The staff were efficient with check in and check out procedures. The breakfast was strictly continental. Nothing warm except the toast. Very minimal.

No coffee maker, no microwave unless you pay more money (wasn't told that until after we were put in the room), breakfast was only bread (muffins, bread, bagels) items, oranges, apples, watered down juices and packets of oatmeal. I will not stay there again.

Ok for quick stay. Room was clean. Amenities are very basic.

Do not stay in this dirty disgusting place!! The toilet did not work and when I told the girl at the front she just said sorry, but didn't do anything about it. Also, there were finger prints in either blood or feces around the bathroom door!! So filthy and gross, and way overpriced for this nasty place! You couldn't pay me to stay here again!!!

Stay was as nice as can be expected, but the room and public areas need remodeling.

The bed was very comfy and the location was very convenient. The only negative things I would have to say was that the TV had a chunk missing from the screen, some of the paint in the room was chipped off the wall and the bathroom was very tiny (it was hard to shut the door while in it) Otherwise everything was great and had a good nights sleep for a good price!

I stayed here for one night it was perfect for the price. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. The mattres was a little firmer than I like but it was still a great deal. It was super close to the freeway and the room was nicely updated.

The staff was great and was awesome about helping me with directions for places that my GPS could not find. The room was clean and the pillow were eh but the overhead light above the shower was dull to say the least and the light cover was an orange tone which made it harder for any light to come into the room.

The hotel was clean and well lit. Location was nice for visiting campus and close to shopping. Staff was very pleasent and helpful.

Very convenient from highway, staff and rooms were very nice

It's a good Hotle to stay in clean, good stuff, I would recommend this place to a friend cause reasonable price compared to what u get

I was in town for a funeral and needed a clean, convenient place to stay. Red Roof Inn filled the bill!

The room is very warm even though the day I stayed there were freezing cold. Convenient free parking.

Great! I would stay here again. It was effect for my needs and very great location. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling in East Lansing.
