Located very near Ferris State U and an accompanying golf course, this property is easy to find. It is still in the process of being renovated, but appears very close to being completed.
I was a bit taken aback by the overwhelming smell of chlorine from the indoor pool as we checked in (check in was smooth, the front desk personable and efficient), but that was the only place that it was noticed - it didn't creep up to the rooms themselves. The double queen room was clean, bright, quiet, (even on a weekend, and there appeared to be a wedding reception hosted there), and well-appointed.
The fitness center needed a good dusting, despite being well used on the morning I was making use of it. Water, towels plentiful.
There is quite a lot of shopping in the area, and decent restaurants. Didn't stop at the Sporting News Grill, which is part of the Conference Center, but had heard from locals that it had good food, happy hour, etc.
