2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
We will not stay here again
We reserved rooms for two nights at this hotel. Upon our arrival, the keys did not work. The staff did resolve this issue. Next, the tv remote control did not work. The staff resolved this issue. The final disappointment was that my relatives had to change rooms twice because of 1) a broken closet door and 2) BEDBUGS and STINKBUGS were found in the room. We will not stay here again.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Great location, walking distance to MSU. The set up of the room was fantastic, unfortunately, the room was old, run down, close to grimy. The staff was OUTSTANDING!!!

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
There were bugs everywhere, and a loud scratching noise coming from the kitchen area, which sounded like mice. The beds were barely usable they were so droopy and squeaky. There was zero chance my son or I would be able to sleep in that filth. Unfortunately we arrived late at night after a long drive, and then had to go back out at 11:30 pm and look for another hotel which was not completely disgusting. For your reference the Holiday Inn we ended up at seemed like a 5-star hotel compared to the uninhabitable room at the Gatehouse Suites. The desk clerk did not refund my money.

4/5 Good
