After 8 days and 7 nights, I can honestly say this is a completely adequate hotel. It's an older building, and has had some updating, but it's the people who really make it a good place to stay. For example, the bathrooms are small, toilets are low, and there's an old-fashioned clothesline that pulls out from a fixture above the tub, but when I needed extra towels, they brought them right up. There are 2 coffee areas near the front desk, and coffee is always fresh, hot and handy. One late afternoon and early evening, one of the 2 elevators broke down. It really caused a lot of back-up as families were checking-in, but there was a crew on the problem immediately and it was fixed by the next morning. Another day, one of the sliding front doors stopped working, but again, a maintenance crew was called to fix it and by the next day everything was back in good working order. The lobby is beautiful, and there is a nice thermostat feature in each of the rooms, as well as a bar, but unless you have a reason to be in downtown Muskegon, there's not a lot going on. There is an excellent restaurant about a block away in the Culinary Institute of MI, as well as a number of other smaller places within walking distance that have very good food, and a real gem of a museum, as well as a fantastic farmer's market also just 2 blocks away from this facility. All-in-all, I'd stay here again when in the area, but be aware, breakfast is NOT part of the deal, so be prepared to feed the family elsewhere. Finally, just as an aside, if you like firm mattresses, this is probably not the place to visit - my mattress was like a soft cloud - pretty, but not much support.
