  • Older travelers

    Our pool was not open like the one at the main building and did not feel we should have to go out in cold to use other one. I had trouble with stairs and rooms empty on the first floor.

  • Older travelers

    Warm, clean beds. Very clean, well-lit bathroom and towels changed daily. Safe was available for valuables. Friendly staff. Location was close to family we visited. Good breakfasts.

    Adjoining room had loud occupants. Noisy children in the hallway after 11 pm. Payed extra for refrigerator.

  • Single

    Fair price

    There was mildew in my shower, the room has an outdated TV. I had to go to the front desk to check out.

  • Older travelers

    We were rushing to see a new grandbaby and wanted to be closer to Saginaw. This was the closest 'decent' hotel at a 'decent' price. We greatly enjoyed the area, and it was nice tohave so many amenities right there on site. We did not specifically 'use' them all, but it was nice to know they were there. We could see this being a vacation location for next year when we go to visit the grandkids again. When the baby decided to postpone a few days, it was easy to extend our stay at the same rate. the rooms were clean and nicely furnished. The beds were VERY comfortable. The halls were quiet and smelled nice. We enjoyed the breakfast and there were places to walk around the property, while staying ON the property. we would definitely stay there again.

    One issue we had was that we had zero cell phone reception. (T Mobile). Not sure if that was because of the location or because of T-mobile, though we are leaning toward the latter. The internet reception was very good, however.

  • Family with children

    The rooms wre decent size

    Starting my reservation with Booking . Com was the first mistake. Apparently the commnication between them and the hotel is poor, to say the least. I had many conversations with the hotel just to make sure we had a room. Our room was in the Best Western portion and was musty and smoky when we arrived. Hotel workers gathered at the outside entrance to chat and smoke. When entering the building, you walked through a cloud of smoke. The breakfast was mediocre at best and overall the place seemed to be very short staffed. The general appearance was unkept and dirty with litter and cigarette butts. It seemed like a tired older building that has not been well cared for.

  • Couple

    Very outdated and dirty. The chairs and carpet were stained, the bathroom had ants and the overall hotel smelled like a dive bar. It needs to be updated and/or renovated. The staff was very friendly; however the hotel was just run down.

  • Family with children

    All pools were closed for maintenance. That was the main reason we booked a room 30 miles out of our way.

  • Family with children

    The staff was was nice. The rooms were nice and clean. The beds were comfortable. It was close to the M B S Airport. I would like to tell every one its is a nice place to stay.

  • Family with children

    We liked the kids size pool for our five year old son. We also liked the game room. Breakfast was good as well.

    We thought that the whole hotel smelled of cigaret smoke. Our room smelled of smoke very strong. The bed was extremely uncomfortable! My husband and I both woke up very sore.

  • Family with children

    Really enjoyed how it was kid friendly. We always had great service from the staff :)

    The only thing that I thought they could do better was the game room, they need to fix some of the games and the pool table needs some impovements. Maybe some upgrading on thier hot tube as well.

  • Older travelers

    Cleanliness of room, and hotel ammenities

    Second shift personnel were not friendly

  • Family with children

    The bed was comfortable. Eric at the front desk honored the rate quoted on even tho he never received the reservation

    They didn't have my reservation. None of the pools were open. Wait staff were ridiculously rude. No elevators

  • Couple

    There were lots of things to do within walking distance of the hotel.

    Hotel was a little out dated but a very great place to stay, rooms were very clean.

  • Family with children

    I traveled with my 13 y.o. Son for a soccer tournament. The hotel had plenty of activities to keep him busy when his games were finished. We were able to putt putt, and bowl. There were also 2 pools and hot tubs. He played some video games and played pool. We saw a movie at the theatre, which wasn't the best quality showing and seats were uncomfortable, but nice option to have. The restaurant had decent food and although we didn't eat at the marketplace it had lots of choices available. We stayed in back building on property, room was clean and spacious even though decor was outdated. All in all decent place to stay with kids.

  • Group of friends

    I liked that the pool was open until 11:00 P.M. and that checkout was at noon.

    I didn't like the bathrooms. They need to be updated even though they were clean they didn't look like it.
