The friendliness of the staff, and the parking

The bar and eating area was uncomfortable, and not inviting

The room was small but clean. What you should expect from the price.

Easy location.

Had a disabled access room. Although very clean, rust stains around tub were unsightly. Could not get window curtains to shut fully, so light continued to come into room.

It's location.

Hotel is in a great location in downtown Grand Rapids. The museums and a lot of restaurants are in walking distance from the hotel and the area was nicely decorated for the holidays.

The rooms were much larger than most 4 star motels that we have been in. Check-in was quick and staff was great!

Nothing.

I don't know why this hotel received only a 2 1/2 star rating because I have been in several 4 star hotels that did not fair as well as this one. The room was clean, larger than expected, nice comfy beds, staff was great. We received cookies at check-in and there was 2 waters waiting for us in our room. You could order food from your room (didn't do that so cannot say how the food was). Bathroom was clean and average size - for a 4 star motel. Had free internet, however, did take a while to get on since the we were out late and the hotel was booked full, so everyone must have been on - but the desk did offer to reset the modem, which I told them not too because that would kick everyone else off and that would not be very nice. Did get on about 10 minutes later though. Had free parking and handicapped which is a must for ...

Jean the housekeeper, and Dave the maintenance man are very friendly

Luke warm hot tub, charged us for a room we booked when they transferred us to a worse room at 11:30 at night, the river view we paid for was dirty roofs and a small inch view of the actual river, can't open the windows to get out on the balcony

There is nothing interesting or fun to do anywhere in close proximity to this hotel.

Location was close to where I had to do business

Took 4 rooms before found one and even that one was in really poor shape but was the best they had. Hotel would not refund monies paid. Room had bedbugs. Other rooms had torn carpet, dirty showers and bathrooms. Extremely poor quality linens.

This facility really needs a visit from Priceline as well as Department of Health. Should be removed from your listing. Extremely disappointed - Have stayed in other America's Best Value Inn with nice rooms and facilities. Such is not the case here. I asked to have sheets changed (bedbugs) and they did not even change the bed sheets. The head housekeeper was advised.

Staff was helpful when I was looking for a taxi cab.

The hotel needs a serious cleaning. There is a bar/restaurant and the whole lobby smells like fried foods. The floor of the whole building needs to at least be vacuumed. The room was very dirty and needs to be updated.

It was real close to downtown grand rapids and it had a fridge. Nice sturdy bed too

It smelled like smoke. Big thank you for not smoking sign and u can smell the smoke. Breakfast really shelf serve. Like they just threw it out there and u figure out where the milk is. There were a few exception s to there bad customer service.

Low class cheap and please don't forgot anything they will give u a hard time and a fee to get it back

Good amount of privacy and quiet.

I didn't particularly enjoy that my middle aged father fell in the parking lot, and the staff didn't see to care about maintenance during an ice storm.

Old tv, furnishings, and decor but it essentially met my expectations based in prior reviews and the star level.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
