first & most important, bartenders Ana & Q were literally the most amazing people EVER they deserve the biggest raise & promotion we laughed soo hard & they made us feel like we were home

they were extremely helpful & had wonderful recommendations for local food & entertainment because of them alone, i would absolutely come back they went above and beyond! the location of this hotel is prime time! a short walk or drive to many fun places the hotel is very modern & clean i had the absolute best time! would absolutely stay here again!

Unfortunately I can not recommend staying here I will start with the positives It’s a newer hotel in what appears to be an up and coming part of town so everything is new and seems well maintained

The rooms were clean and comfortable, and a good portion of the staff were friendlyThe first negative will be checking in With no clear signs, or even an unloading area to drop off your luggage, you find yourself driving around a parking lot unsure of where to go When another guest (not staff) sees you struggling, and explains where to park, and how to enter (you park behind the building, in a pay by the hour lot, and then walk back to the front to enter Make sure to bring the parking ticket, they will take it from you, but charge you an additional $13 a day to park)While staying there, be careful what staff you ask a question of Even simple ones like “what floor is your laundry room on?” They may tell you “3rd floor” and after wandering around aimlessly you will actually find it located of the FOURTH floor If you need to use their laundry, be sure to bring your own quarters, asking the staff for a roll of quarters seemed to confuse them (it was $2 for the washer, and I think the dryer was free? It might just have been broken the times I used it?)When you reach the service desk, even if you booked the room months in advance, and it’s 5pm, it doesn’t mean your room will be ready We waited over a half an hour for them to “find” us a room We used that time to bring in our luggage It’s a pretty good haul back to the parking lot, and without a room key to enter the door by the parking lot, you find yourself hauling your luggage back around to the front doors againAnd then there’s Melissa (I believe that was her name?)Full disclosure, we were required to stay at this location for a Baseball tournament Our team has literally stayed at probably over 40 hotels through the years, and we have never had a problemAfter the days games, you can not meet in one person’s room, they are too small to fit an entire team, so we meet in the lobby to unwind, discuss the events of the day and games still left to play We can be a pretty large crowd, but we try to be respectful, and we make sure the “kids” (all 16 or older now) are as well Melissa apparently did not want us hanging around the lobby (even though the two nights prior, not one person on the staff mentioned they did not allow guests to hang out in the lobby) That was fine with us, so we asked if we could sit on the patio We were declined So we offered to rent a meeting room for the team, something we have done at other hotels, and again we were declined We tried our best to make some kind of arrangement that would be acceptable, and the only option Melissa was willing to give, is that we all just go sit in our rooms Asking ten 16 year old boys to just “sit in your room” isn’t going to end wellSo we ask to speak to a manager, someone who possibly would be able to help us find an option that might work Melissa gave us a phone number that rang a phone behind her (that no one answered of course)Let’s be clear, not every hotel wants a baseball team to stay there, that’s understandable, BUT If your hotel is going to host teams that travel from other states to be there, they should be willing to make accommodations to those teams If you are not willing to even TRY to find a solution, don’t host the teams There are plenty of hotels that are more than happy to have teams, and up to this point, every hotel we have stayed at will work with the coaches and parents to ensure everyone has a nice stay Not Melissa She was unfriendly, unprofessional, and made us feel unwelcomedNext tournament, we promise not to hang out in your lobby, or because of Melissa, your hotel

The breakfast that is ‘Cooked to order’, Is the best part about this place!!!! I spend a lot of time at hotels, and this is the one that I wanna go back to! It was such a great stay for a day in a half The room was amazing the price was great, I was very impressed with everything The entire place was beautiful

They had truck parking, so I could park my Semi in the lot Oh, and the staff was the absolute best! Clean and comfy! More hotels should be like this one

This is a great hotel ,I really enjoyed my stay here It’s convenient it’s close to stores restaurants,and the expressway In the evening they have a social hour in which each guest gets two free drinks , or beers

They offer a pretty nice breakfast in the morning til 9:30 am , and 10 am on the weekends The room had a real nice couch in it and beds were super comfortable Front desk is super friendly,and helpful

Steve Alvarado

Quality Suites was a great hotel to sleep in and relax Concession stand was fairly priced, breakfast was amazing thanks to their cook Todd Front Desk helped out amazingly for accommodations and assistance

However, it won’t be a full 5 star as there were some complications Unfortunately their boiler or eater heater was down and was not able to get fixed during my stay And in one of the rooms, there was a brown-yellow looking stain that I’m sure Room Service knewOutside of those two complaints, I would definitely choose this hotel as a hotel to stay

One of the best, most authentic bed and breakfast stays you’ll find anywhere Diane is a wonderful host and a community gem in Lansing Very fair prices, delicious breakfast; an oasis in the city

A 15 minute walk downtown or to Olde Town, in a very cute, walkable neighborhood surrounded by lovely old homes A little quirky, but charming, and the cutest schnauzer ever, Teddy!

Mary Cicala

Though we arrived several hours early the host met us and was happy to have us there She gave us a very nice tour of the bed and breakfast and offered many great suggestions for dining, walking and other guided tours In the morning she had a fabulous savory breakfast waiting for us and shared a lot of the history of the 2 homes on the property

With the 2 homes, there are plenty of guest rooms many of them with ensuite bathrooms We would definitely stop in again when we’re in the Lansing area We highly recommend the Cozy Koi It even has a koi pond in a garden setting!!

Dohm Marie

My friends and I stayed here when we came into town for an MSU vs UofM football game We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! Diane and the other guests were all friendly and breakfast was plentiful and filling and tasty! The rooms had unique decorations so you definitely felt the care she took to style each room differently I’d highly recommend this place to others!

( I’ll start with the good and then go into the bar) The breakfast was okay They had a pretty good selection to choose from The woman chef who works there was very friendly and had a bubbly energy

I loved interacting with herI stayed here for three nights while on a work trip I wish I could leave a better review When I arrived, I had some things to put in the fridge but had to clean it out first since there was quite a bit of opened food in it I went to put my clothes away and it was crumbs as well as hair in the drawers that I had to clean out since I was told housekeeping wouldn’t be available The bathroom sink had not been cleaned off so there was soap stains around the faucet and sink I have attached some photos of other areas in the room that they don’t think will be checked by the people staying in them, so they don’t clean it You’d think it would be better during Covid but I was disappointed I checked out the pool and hot tub later and felt like I just got out of dirty bath water when I was done I smelled disgusting because of what was washed into that water I asked the front desk how often they change the way and I was told every six months I can see why that salt water stunk so badly I went downstairs at about 1 am after traffic died down, to turn in my towels because I was told to use my bath towel for the pool due to backed up laundry When I went down to turn in the bath towels and get more, I was polite and was met with a rude reaction I think the woman was doing some school work and when I asked, she rolled her eyes and didn’t say anything before getting up and grabbing some keys She came from behind the desk while still saying nothing and turned around the corner of the desk before saying, “follow me” I went in the laundry room with her and put my towels in the dirty clothes hamper before she picked some other ones out and gave them to me before I said thank you and we silently parted ways

BlackDog Restoration

It’s the People that make a place memorableCame in for a work event with a few people on a Friday night The front desk women was fantastic

The room didn’t have sheets or a pillow and she fixed our issue right away Pool was nice but the hot tub needs help I give a 5 star for the outstanding costumer serviceI go to alot of hotels and I’ll be back to see Gail anytime I’m in Lansing for work thanks for a great stay đź’ž

Lori Hopp

I stay here at least once a month, and it has always been great! This time however the price increased and the room was a lot less clean We were put on the first floor and the was water damage which I understand However, the hotel was not full yet we were placed directly across from where they started construction at 8 a

m I spoke to the front desk twice expecting resolve and for a ” we will take it into consideration for next time” I am a nurse and my sleep is important to me I likely will not stay here again, sadly I felt unheard

Great hotel, very nice & clean Dog friendly hotel for a fee, my only trouble was they don’t allow dogs on the rooftop patio which was a bummer that we couldn’t grab a drink! Dogs are allowed on other nearby restaurant & bar rooftops & patios Have stayed at several graduates and other locations allow dogs in the bar area or patio and also have provided more amenities like a little dog blanket and dog bowl

Cool hotel otherwise, maybe they’ll change the pet policy at some point for the patio!

Logan Wood

What a wonderful stay!! When booking, I asked the staff to hide a photo of Nic Cage in my room, and by the time of our reservation I had completely forgotten my silly request My boyfriend and I cried laughing at the genius hiding spot they chose! The Graduate hotel was beautiful, the rooftop bar was lively, and the staff were amazing!! 10/10 experience, this place delivers (:

Chase Hasper

A very nice hotel with a modern, eclectic outdoorsy vibe From the pencil wall around the coffee bar to the various shield motifs throughout, the whole hotel is beautifully themed towards education and MSU The rooftop bar has one of the best views around, letting you see most of the campus

It’s worth noting that there isn’t any parking at the hotel, and the valet will be an extra $30/night Alternatively you can park in a nearby parking ramp and walk your luggage over Regardless, you will have to pay to park somewhere

I regret not taking pictures This almost 5 (should be 3) star establishment is way over priced The bed sheets were dirty – it was blood, rust, or food – when we entered, the girl was pretty quick to replace but not change them

There is no phone in the room The TV functions, but it’s bad picture It’s an old TVWe made a dinner reservation for 6 The waitress was nice, but that’s it Me and my husband went the entire meal without refills – we asked several times to more than one person, I had one diet coke and he had two teas I’m not sure who we were sitting next to, but from the very very loud conversation it (I couldn’t hear my husband or myself) sounded like the man at the table worked thereThe food was okay I got the duck and he got the fillet We should have saved our money and time, we should have just went to Texas Roadhouse Half the price and just as goodBreakfast was not great either ^I’m behind disappointed, I’m angry For $400, we should have at the very least got a clean room and good food We got a $200 experience for $400Note: We went here on our wedding day, 5 years ago The food was great, the staff was great, but we didn’t have a room I don’t know if it’s because something has changed over the years or that I’ve had the chance to experience a $350 food bill that was worth itI don’t know how to stress this enough Save your money

Susan Rieske

Fine dining in a beautiful atmosphere The menu offers a small selection, but all are beautifully presented and taste wonderful We especially appreciate the outdoor dining in greenhouses, as we are not dining indoors yet

It’s magical to be outdoors at night in the snow and under the moon, while cozy and warm in a private greenhouse


5/5 the hospitality5/5 atmosphere4/5 foodWe went here for my brothers graduation this is a nice little place about 20 minutes outside of Lansing The menu is mostly traditionally English food like beef wellington, Yorkshire pudding The food was great, but I had to knock a star off the puff pastry on my beef wellington was a little under done the potato’s were rustic and delicious and the green beans were perfect

The dining room is nice and cozy the food was around 50 dollars per entrée and included a walnut salad too overall great experience

Monique Goree

The room was horrible, as if they only changed the sheets It was crumbs all over the floor The bedside table had wet coffee stains and crumbs

Barely and towels and a half roll of toilet paper Since I was there for my child school track competition, I decided to stay All the rooms were taken, so the front desk lady had housekeeping to clean the room I went to Walmart to get cleaning supplies to go over what they did I have one star for friendly staff Marriott should inspect their hotels Very disappointing

Tricie Bennett

Just stayed here for 4 nights

housekeeping never came in the room to give us clean towels, empty garbage or anything else Floors, bathroom, toilet were dirty TV was not working when we arrived, but after talking to the front desk that was fixed Hot tub not functioning I have never been to a Marriott that was so dirty, uncaring Our garbage and dirty towels sat in the hallway for 2 days before they were picked up Front desk and breakfast area staff were great Disappointing stay at best

Gretchen Brown

Ice machines were broken, hot tub was broken and blocked off with caution tape, elevator was loud and rough and ended up breaking completely while we were there, no clean towels in the entire building so we had to wait for the front desk clerk to do a load, huge stain on carpet as soon as you entered our room along with what appeared to be a blood stain on the sofa bed No bedding for the sofa bed but front desk was able to provide two sheets and a blanket Breakfast was rough

Pool is much smaller than other hotels we have stayed at Sadly, we’ll chose a hotel that isn’t in the Marriott chain moving forward

Although this is a nice hotel the lies from the staff and double dipping on payments as well overcharging I’d have to never recommend this particular hotel to anyone who don’t want to be cheated out of money Staff messed up when we were checking in and overcharged ($620 for three nights when it was rated at $124/night) my card We realized right away and went down and thought we had it fixed so we stayed

We were informed by the assistant manager that we could pay when we received the money back and that he removed my card off file and put us on cash pay 6/3/22 Today 4 days later still waiting on the money back they decided to take an additional $453?? from my card I haven’t been at this hotel for a few days and had all intentions of paying what was owed after I received the overcharge back They lied about taking the card off file and now for a few nights they have stole $107400 from me when I only owed $45300 If you want your money to not be stolen from you another hotel might be your best interestVERY UNSATISFIED CUSTOMER!!!This is theft!!!

Steve Lowenstein

Two nights in a room that smelled like sewage before they moved me to another room and promised me points as compensation Assured me the points would be on my account They are not

Called and left message and was assured the manager would call me the next day No manager has called This review will be updated if they ever call me and do what they said they were going to do

Booked a room for my daughters birthday party Was expecting more for the price Pool was nice size, they have a nice outdoor area to sit at

Room was smaller than expected and breakfast was crazy expensive, not included with room Wish there had been a fridge or microwave Best part of our stay was Joe from the front desk, gave my daughter a birthday card and her and her friend candy for her birthday That really made a difference in our stay

Grace Ontiveros

This place has excellent service! It’s super clean, ambiance is nice, great location and amazing banquet services Our daughter had her wedding here Julie, Amanda in sales and Sofie at the front desk were all AMAZING! I wish I had written everyone’s name down

This hotel definitely needs a remodel There was no housekeeping during the stay, carpets and walls in hallways are dirty Restaurant only open for breakfast and closes at 9

Starbucks coffee counter in lobby closed permanently during my stay Shower was clogged HOWEVER, the staff was incredibly sweet and very attentive, always helping whenever needed 5 star staff!!

Blain Becktold

The staff and hotel management were very friendly, address our needs and were easy to work with I would recommend the hotel to others for business functions and lodging The hotel was used for and expo held at the Lansing Center with over 300 attendees

I did not have one complaint from guest that stayed at the hotel for lodging and we hosted a dinner for 80 people The food and service was excellent

Johanna Wright

I was throughly disappointed It was not a nice room, it did not appear clean, the restaurant and Starbucks were both closed Even a basic hotel has continental breakfast

For $200 I would expect some form of breakfast Then there are muffins for $4 a piece Then on top of that it’s $15 to park Absolutely ridiculous Will never stay again You don’t get your money’s worth

I really enjoyed my stay here! I liked that the room I had had its own little kitchenette No oven, sadly, but there were pots and pans and some tools available for me to do some cooking Much better than eating take out every day

It felt like a little home away from home as I was able to hook up my Switch to the TV also The bathroom was large and the soap scents were up my alley Staff was also very nice and I have to give them props because I set off my fire alarm once They responded hastily to it Sorry for giving you a heart attack guys lol

Alicia Schaeffer

I had reservations through work, in a “standard suite” I was greeted by a sweet, intelligent, 2nd shift front desk clerk, who was very welcoming, friendly and helpful After checking in, I was told how to get to my room

I was absolutely shocked when I opened the door to my room, only to find it is more like a studio apartment! Complete with dishwasher, garbage disposal, apartment sized refrigerator with an ice maker in the freezer, two-burner stove top, microwave, coffee pot, dishes and utensils for every day needs and a toaster My room is extremely clean and smells amazing! The bed is absolutely comfortable There is a table, recliner, large dresser, TV, telephones, Clock, iron and ironing board, in the bathroom, there is a hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner and body wash available for use I was sad to leave home for work, however this suite made me feel very comfortable and “at home”, away from home I will definitely be back after this visit and I look forward to it!

Good vacation spot for a youth conference The people who work there are great and the breakfast food is fantastic The rooms are nicely sized and the key card access for rooms are the most convenient and useful system that I’ve ever experienced

The room comes with two queen sized beds, a mini fridge, closet and drawer space, pull out bed, and bathroom The bathroom looks nice and the showers are great, although, the door to the bathroom is unsettling, it’s made of glass but blurry, it’s hard to see in the bathroom but not hard to see from the bathroom out and the lock is a little on the low end Nonetheless, Hyatt hotel is a great hotel for business, conferences, and vacation time

I have now stayed at all three of the hotels out by Eastwood Town Center in Lansing All three hotels are nice, but Hyatt Place is by far my favorite Great staff

Clean rooms Tyler (sales manager) was especially helpful due to having to change an online (third party) booking Breakfasts can vary a bit each morning, but always fresh This hotel is closest to the several shops, restaurants and giant movie theater complex at Eastwood Easy and free parking as well And it is almost always the least expensive of the three hotels at Eastwood

This is way more than I would expect to pay for what we got We only got 2 shampoos for 3 people The room looked like someone spilt something allover the carpet

They double charged my friends card To my knowledge she still hasn’t gotten it back The only thing good was the breakfast Drinks are triple the price an they only have a small selection of drinks an they are in a small bottle

The first thing, this place needs better signage! There was nothing indicating where the lobby was Also, this is a Motel, not HotelThe desk clerk was very friendly

Then it went down hill The room temp was very low, but did warm up when the temperature was raised to 68 Dead bugs were found on the windowsill along with live ones on the bedThere was a very small roll of toilet paper in the bathroom with no back up roll Yes, we ran out There were only 4 tissues with no back up I’m all about using up, but leave an extra back up! The room was very small and wifi was not the greatestThere was a big problem with the alarm clock and static when we turned the nightstand light off We had to unplug the itAlso, while there was a split in the outside wall to walk to the parking lot, no sidewalk That would be an easy, cheap fixIt’s location to campus is great and the price cheap It just won’t be a place we go back to

Giving it 35 stars My son and I were there for 2 nights, Sunday-Tuesday

This was not my first choice, but the hotels around the area were booked and Lansing is deceptively further than you may assumePros: For a motel, it was surprisingly very clean and spacious We stayed in room 220 and it looked brand new Shower had strong water power, beds were comfortable And their was a very sizable refrigerator and microwave which worked nicely if you wanted to bring in some groceries The WIFI was also great The management staff was excellent Very receptive, warm and honest You have to request for house keeping, but that’s Ok as they do a superb job They also had breakfast and a coffee station Parking was simple One of the best things about this place was location Right on the outskirts of East Lansing and Okemos, it was overall relatively safe with a Whole Foods across the street along with several restaurant and retail establishmentsCons: The people staying at the motel There were some shady cats We were lucky on the Sunday night It was relatively peaceful But the Monday nightif it hadn’t been for the AC unit running on high which helped drown out a lot of outside noise, I would have called the cops Loud, obnoxious, assumingly a group of teens and early twenty-somethings running incessantly all over the floor at 2, 3, 4 am, screaming, banging doors There was no authority figure so it was out of control They completely had no disregard for other patrons of the motelThis place was great in a pinch For the value it works I mean there is no way you’re going to get a two night stay in East Lansing for $200, including all fees and taxes But it comes with the risk of not having a proper sleep All hell broke loose on a Monday night I couldn’t imagine this place on a Friday or Saturday Management really needs to keep their unruly patrons on lock, or call the police Again, a very good place to stay only if you want to cut down on costs or all other hotels are booked in the East Lansing area

We had a late night check in and Lexi was so amazing amd so helpful Our room was great we are very happy with the size and all the amenities we had in there Loved having the kitchenette

The staff that we interacted with were all very friendly and helpful Angelica made multiple phone calls to help us get our devices connected to the wifi since the connecting options were not popping up The continental breakfast was good the only thing I wish was that they had a few hot breakfast items I wish they had left a broom in the suite, we had a dust pan but no broomThis was our first stay here and it was fantastic I will be staying here again


Traveling here from out of state for Smokey Bones restaurant and this hotel has exceeded my expectations! Staying here with my dog and they have been so accommodating and sweet!!! The ladies at the front desk are incredible! They even gave me a noise machine for my dog!!! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!! Clean, friendly, service always with a smile I will be back!!!

Super perfect date overnight with my husband for our anniversary We had flowers in our room, candles, nice outdoor seating space, so many nice games and books Loved the organic soaps and bath salts for our spa tub

The breakfast was amazing, the service was great and everyone was so nice The location was perfect for walking or riding bikes Felt homey but very private We Definitely enjoyed our stay Thanks so much!

We stayed here in the Great Lakes room on our wedding night We’ve never stayed at a B&B before and didn’t know what to expect This place was so cute! Each room is a different theme

Ours had a large soaking tub and a cute lakes theme My husband checked in the Friday night before the wedding and had a delicious breakfast the morning of our wedding The staff there are very attentive When we arrived there after our wedding the owner was up waiting to make sure we got in safely They cleaned up the room that day for us The next morning we had a delicious home cooked breakfast and the owner gave us a cute little ornament as a memento for staying there for our wedding night Everyone was just super, including the b&b manager their cute fluffy dog that stopped by our table to see how we were enjoying our food We both totally recommend checking out this b&b if you’re staying in East Lansing!

Ryan Shea

Overall, unsurpassed hosting in our experience- simply outstandingWe stayed here one night in December, and it was the perfect winter travel experienceAlan and Paul are consummate professional hosts- when they caught wind that we had just gotten married, they gave us an adorable Christmas ornament with the date as a gift to commemorate our visit

The room was cozy and comfortable, with every amenity one could hope for already neatly prepared Breakfast was delicious and diverse Yogi, the Inn’s pet, was excellent company as we dinedWe highly recommend this to anyone who desires a memorable stay in the Lansing area, and hope to have an opportunity to stay here again when visiting in the future

I travel for work and what made this hotel special was the professional and friendly customer service that Autumn provided Autumn had an unusual emergency today and the hotel management allowed her to bring her children to work They were adorable and well mannered

I am in sales and believe when an employee feels valued it shows in their work Best customer service I’ve had in a while I’ll definitely stay here again Signed a Diamond Hilton Member!


Very nice hotel Clean, well appointed and great location Breakfast was a bit lacking but that seems to have become the norm in most places right now

I would gladly stay at this hotel again if I could avoid the front deskThis morning (7/24 @ approximately 8 am) after carrying my breakfast plate upstairs to enjoy in my room, I discovered I had been checked out and my digital key had been inactivated I carried my plate back downstairs to get an actual key card Told the gal at the desk the situation and expressed to her that I wasn’t happy about the inconvenience and the fact my breakfast was continuing to get cold She told me to “Calm Down” that I hadn’t been checked out and everything was fine (I was not anything other than calm with her at any point) I told her that despite her reassurances, I still needed a key to get in my room and I advised her to never tell a guest to “calm down” She then proceeded to argue with me, telling me she was just being nice, I didn’t hear her tone of voice, etc” She was completely rude and condescending I told her that I clean heard her tone and there is no circumstance or tone of voice which makes telling a guest to “calm down” acceptable, especially when I was nothing but calm I wished her a good day and walked away before she could continue to argue with me Very disappointed in her representation of the staff


This hotel could do much better But after staying for 30 days, we experience some issue with the staff for cleaning and kitchen Running out of food was unexceptable, as staff was seen giving away food to their coworkers

They have staff that lives there as well, which is fine, but keep the kids under control Lastly, make sure your doors are locked at all times because staff just waked in without knocking while I was getting changed This hotel has so much potential but there were a lot of inappropriate things going on outside with the staff Just needs to do a total house cleaning of staff that are not front desk
