wouldn't recommend this place
Posted Mar 23, 2016
I wasn't expecting much as it only received a 1.5 star out of 5 (everything in the Lansing area was booked) and the price was cheap - $60. The parking lot and whole building were dark, all the cars outside were in bad shape and filled with stuff. When I walked in, it was clear that they rent a lot of rooms out by the month. There were piles of toys and clothing everywhere (apparently, they were taking donations for homeless shelters - which is a good cause, but the stuff was EVERYWHERE...). This definitely had the look and feel of a boarding place just a step above a homeless shelter. The elevator was filled with stale smoke odor, as was the hallway and our room. It didn't look like the floor had been vacuumed whatsoever, the lamp shades were all cracked, huge chunks of tiles were missing out of the shower. Our family has stayed at a LOT of hotels over the years, and we all agreed that this was definitely the worst one we have ever stayed at. Our 12 year old slept on a towel on top of her sheets (and even the towel was stained pretty bad) and would not get out of her clothes. The next morning, there was barely a trickle of water out of the shower head and it was lukewarm at best. We could not wait to get out of there...If the place is going to be for people down on their luck or trying to better themselves by staying off the street, then that is great. But it should not be offered to the general public as a hotel for overnight transient guests.
