The rooms are tiny and the AC is marginal at best. Uncomfortable beds. Postage-stamp bathroom! We had made reservations for several visits because our son was at the arts camp. Never again! Sound travels into the rooms way too much from the hallway and other rooms. Few of the staff act with professionalism. For example, the first time we arrived, the front desk manager was swearing up a storm about some personal issue she had. They seem to know they have a captive market for people who need to be there for their kids. No elevator to the second floor, and due to an injury it was difficult for me to get my suitcase upstairs. The ONLY think the Stone has going for it is the location, just steps from Kresge and other performance spaces. The last time we stayed here, we had to pay an upgrade fee to get the actual type of room we had ordered (2 vs 1 bed).
