I am a positive person by nature, but it was really hard for me to find any positives in this place.

To begin, the front office smells absolutely disgusting. As I was checking in, I was gagging on the smell of curry and other potent "cultural" smells that I found later, when checking out, actually penetrated through two steel doors.

Here are the list of things:
1) The smell coming from the unplugged frig was absolutely horrendous upon entering the room.
2) The attendants do not speak English
3) The TV's have two stations, if they come in clearly
4) The windows do not lock, they are chocked by 2x4 pieces of scrapped wood
5) Your two bedroom stay is actually another door that the attendant comes in to unlock with a different key, so do not accidentally lock yourself out of your "two bedroom" stay
6) The towels are the size of napkins
7) There is no phone in the room - make sure your cell phone is charged in the event of an emergency and if you need anything during your stay, be prepared to walk yourself to the disgusting front office.
8) The water pressure in the shower actually hurts - I had to drape a rag over it.
9) The signs say no smoking, but people obviously smoke in these rooms
10) Spend the extra $30 and stay somewhere that is sanitary

The only positives I could find...
1) The sheets seemed clean - although the ones in the back room had tons of holes in it, etc.
2) I did not see any bugs in the room - I was one cockroach away from sleeping in my car
3) The area seemed "safe," despite my initial fear when checking in through a front office that had 2 inch glass to protect the attendant.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms here - if you need to go out and get good food, take the time to travel a li...

Upon opening the door of the first room to which we were assigned, my boyfriend and I were greeted by the overwhelming stench of mustiness and mold. A quick survey of the room revealed that our only light source would have to come from a lone lamp perched on an otherwise barren nightstand. Although the refrigerator door was missing its handle, I was eventually able to pry it open, where I found remnants of old food and a long clump of hair hanging to the center shelf by a clump of grey mold. The toilet in the bathroom was covered with hair and stains of indistinguishable origin, as was the shower. When my boyfriend peeled back the covers of the bed to inspect the sheets, he found more hair, as well as makeup-stained pillowcases covering lumpy pillows that had yellowed from years of head-sweat. The final straw came when I got up from sitting on the bed and noticed several ants crawling around in the area where I had just been sitting. The manager denied that the room was dirty, but eventually agreed to provide us with a new room. Although the smell of the new room was somewhat less pungent, I would be lying if I said it was much cleaner. The griminess of both rooms, coupled with the fact that the heater in the new room must have been installed in 1955, made for a sleepless night spent shivering and scanning the room for any additional insect intruders.

Room Tip: Stay away!

For the price, this motel was great! It was big, with 2 bedrooms and a living room. Now if only they would replace the beds. They were absolutely awful! If it was a little closer to Michigan State, we would have spent the whole weekend here.

Nice enjoyable place to stay. A great price for the Lansing area and has a
hometown feeling. It's great if your on a fixed income. Has a nice pizza
place and convenience store 30 seconds walk. Right on bus line.

Room Tip: Rooms aroung 15-16 are quieter and have that retro feel.
