This was a very nice hotel for the price. The room was dated but comfortable. The pool was well maintained, comfortable temperature and very clean. Unfortunately the surrounding neighborhood was unnerving for a single mother traveling with a small child, but if you are looking for cheap, clean with a nice indoor pool this might be your affordable c […] hoice.

This was the scariest, Nastiest Hotel I have ever ever stayed in! I was afraid to go to sleep, I was afraid to park my car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location to downtown a big plus!"
Room was adequate, but not the quality of the Ritz. Price should be less than the $75 charged. Surrounding area is a busy thoroughfare, but minutes from the downtown museums and breweries. Compared to prices of hotels directly in the downtown area, the trade off is worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not in a sweet area, room was super dark. Hotel staff was nice and friendly though. The view from the room was an industrial facility surrounded by barbed wire.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was clean and updated. The price was reasonable and room was very comfortable. I didn't take advantage of the free breakfast but everything looked good. My coffeemaker did not work but that was minor and the hotel staff was very apologetic. I checked in at 2 AM and was greeted by helpful night staff. I checked out at noon with more helpful […] and kind staff. Thank you! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient place for approaching Grand Rapids"
The staff were very courteous and helpful. The free breakfast was above average, the bed and shower were all one could want. You get here for much less the same you would pay a lot more for elsewhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"$70 + tax for a sleepless night - crazy!"
Room 214’s looking into commercial backyard-quiet on Friday night.I got alarmed to see adjacent door, checked it out-decided not to worry about-seemingly was empty.We're pleased to see updated carpet, flat TV, bathroom fixtures, and fresh/white towels-actually didn't smell Clorox. Coffeemaker needs to be upgraded-one pocket of coffee for two coffee […] lovers-joke.Linens were nice, only 3 pillows, but I like one being hard for seating up. We’re along from all sides- peacefully felt asleep.Our cozy room becomes news-room at 1AM-arrived neighbor smashed the door and turned up TV.Our patience was tested for two hours until my husband got up and said: let’s pack&go.Our party was 30 min. away, but not until noon.Second option-3 hour drive home.I like neither-decided to knock on neighbor's door-no response, but stinky smell’s coming from under the door.Loud as ever, 3 AM news began, we're up as teenagers, but not for a good reason.I called front desk stating our problem-was promised to get help.Telephone was ringing on neighbor’s side-nobody pick it up.Two more calls didn't help ‘til knock on the door. Jump, couple of words, smashed door. Oh!haven-TV shot off.We wake up before 8 AM, tired and still angry.Bad coffee didn't help-we left in one hour.While checking out, I mentioned awful night to new front desk lady-she raised her shoulders with almost whispering Sorry.We did too!

For the price, it was more than reasonable, it could have had flat screen TVs, but at least it had TVs and HBO.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
You can tell this is an older hotel in a soon to be run-down part of town. Kind of tells you something that the driveway to the place has you going around a liquor store. Site said check-in at arrived an hour after and had to wait for room to be cleaned. Bed had an older worn down mattress. Not the worst hotel I've stayed in. By far not the best either. […] Staff was friendly. Didn't try pool. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Will not return"
Room not ready upon arrival (30 min wait) and room smelled like smoke. Super rude cleaning lady and morning front desk staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
barely worth the $50. but all the chairs in my room were broken, the breakfast was pretty weak, and someone who seemed to be an owner monopolized the desk staff's time for like 15 minutes before i could check in. should have just slept in my car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Solid crash pad"
Stayed at the Travel Lodge for a night, just needed 4 walls, a roof and a shower, and it was more than satisfactory for this need. Hot breakfast in the morning was much appreciated, and the location was decent. Don't expect anything upscale and you'll be quite happy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will use the next time in Grand Rapids."
I came in later in the evening (ca. 9:30 pm.) I was quickly checked in and retired to my room which was quite comfortable. Nothing fancy but quite adequate. The room was very quiet. I enjoyed a good night's sleep. Would definitely consider it again the next time in town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel in a declining part of town."
I arrived late at night and the staff person was friendly, helpful and efficient. The room was adequate, but needed updating. Sink had little cracks and the shower drain backed up. The room was very clean, though. Heater was noisy, but that was good since the walls were paper thin and you could hear everything next door, including snoring. Still has […] the old style cathode-ray tube tv, and the remote didn't work. The front desk did take care of that immediately. The breakfast was wonderful; good variety and fresh. Glad I stayed one more night just for the breakfast! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
In dire need of a renovation. The rooms were very outdated and felt unclean. You could see where there had been large holes in the walls and the wallpaper was peeling off. All the cars in the parking lot near my room were very banged up which made me feel unsafe about parking there for one night. They also tried to rush me to check out when I had plenty […] of time left of my stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not all it's cracked up to be"
We were taking our boys on a mini trip to GR and wanted a hotel with a pool and hot tub to enjoy. Their website says they have a hot tub; they don't. They also have a channel card for the tv in the room, but half of them didn't work and another quarter were blurry. On the bright side, the staff was terrific, breakfast was great and the rooms were very […] nice, but our stay was ruined by inaccurate advertising... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for"
Overall this was a $60 hotel room and I think the value matches the price. The checkin was easy and quick, the room wasn't too far away and the pool looked small but excellent for kids. The room was as described, and looked clean. The walls had stains and the bathroom had several chips out of surfaces, but the bed was extremely comfortable. We slept […] in and wound up completely missing the continental breakfast when getting downstairs at 10, so if you want the food mentioned be sure to get up earlier. Would book again if I had to do another budget trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The stay was so-so"
We arrived early so we could swim. The pool was too cold and there were no towels poolside. We did use the exercise room. The room was too cold, even with the heater on. We stayed because we were attending a retirement party at the Brann's Steak House, right down the road. It was convenient for this purpose. We just attended the party, slept the night […] and went home. The stay was just so-so. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Do not stay here"
Hotel maintenance is below average. The bed covers were not changed prior my visit and smelled like cigarette and smoke, it had this dirty smell and I wonder when was the last time it was changed. They turned the heat off and when I walked in, the room felt like a freezer, the bathroom heat lamp did not work, and the carpet looked dirty. I went downstairs […] but the pool didn't look good either. I WILL NOT COME BACK TO THIS HOTEL EVER!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel and people were really organized. But the lobby had to let us in the room more then a dozen times. Because the door wouldnt open with any of the 3 key cards. The references, browsers and take out menus need be updated. Because the things we wanted to eat are no longer made by the restaurant. The biggest thing I noticed was that management […] never walk outside to clean the establishment parking lot. Do to the used condoms that my boys thankfully never noticed just outside the door next to the tin bucket for an ashtray.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great deal, close to Devos"
Knew for the price it wouldn't be 5 star. Room was very comfortable and clean. Stayed 3 nights, and first day morning housekeeping never came. Front desk attendant that night though was helpful, brought up fresh towels, coffee, and pulled trash. The following days were no issue with housekeepng. Morning breakfast was adequate- typical waffle, cereal, […] bagel type. Neighborhood was fine, not affluent but safe. Chinese restaruant next store was pretty good, and room had a fridge and microwave. Saved a lot on food cost as a result. i will go back there again for the conference next year. Easy short drive to Devos. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty good for the price"
The hotel was clean (with a slight musty smell) and not too noisy. Good deal for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was very clean"
It looks as if it was an old building that was recently updated. It was very clean. The staff was very courteous. The only downside was the view. The location is not in the best area, but never felt unsafe. The parking lot was well lit and secure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The room was abysmal"
Not happy with my experience. The room was a smoking room from the smell of it. Even though I paid for a non-smoking room. I had to send everything to the cleaners because it picked up the smoke odor. No elevator and no help with the bags from the staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent Hotel; Great Location."
Needed an inexpensive hotel close to a location I needed to travel to for business. I own my own business and have to pay my own way, so wanted something cheap. This hotel's staff gave off a great "family" vibe: welcoming, hospitable, and eager for guests to use the facility. My room was okay; could have been cleaner. It was nice to have a little fridge, […] coffee pot, ironing board & iron, & hair dryer provided. The heating/air conditioning worked super well and fast. There was also a noise curfew which was helpful as I was taking a training session and needed to get decent sleep. The surrounding area was full of fast food, restaurants, grocery stores, and right in front of hotel was liquor store :-) I'd stay there again if I needed to. The price was right.

"Great hotel chain, awful staff at this one!"
I have stayed at many Travelodges before and I have never had worse service. The staff was rude, accused me of lying about how many people stayed in the room when a friend staying in the RV outside used the rest room, told me that I should be grateful for the breakfast they served as is when I asked for fat free milk, and tried to charge me $7 for the […] extra person using the bathroom once in our room. I cancelled my second night and went somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great price if you are willing to drive"
Totally satisfactory, great price, and exactly what I expected but there were a lot of REALLY noisy guests even on a Sunday night. Cleanliness was good and front desk attendant called to make sure everything was OK about 15 minutes after we checked in. The indoor pool looked clean and smelled much better than most.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was looking for a cheap room for 1night. The room was not locked and the bed spread was not laid out on the bed. A faint smell of vomit was somewhere near the rather loud refrigerator. None the less the room was fine otherwise and fit my purpose. The WiFi was fine and the pool was nice and warm. All the shortcomings were forgiven when I saw the self […] serve waffle maker and the good variety of breakfast foods. The only disappointment was they don't allow you to take food to the room probably to prevent hoarding but I ate more then had I gone back to the room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Decent option if you want to save some scrilla."
I visit friends in Grand Rapids typically 2-3 times per year, and I often stay at this hotel. It's not the Four Seasons, but it meets my needs of being within a fairly short cab ride of downtown (typically around $12-$15), and without the downtown hotel prices. The only complaint I had about this visit was that checkout is at noon, and as I walked out […] of my room at 11:50, I was nearly swarmed by 3 cleaning crew and a supervisor who acted like I had barricaded myself in my room and was an hour late. That was a bit unusual, but it certainly won't prohibit me from using this as my GR crash pad in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay for an in-town event"
Cheap hotel, just off the highway, not in the nicest area. Out-dated decor and worn-looking decor. However, staff was friendly, the place was clean, and a normal continental (pre-packaged carbohydrates) for breakfast. In terms of proximity to downtown GR, it was within 3 exits, and a 5 minute drive...which was nice. Beds were comfortable, and access […] to wi-fi was nice, too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing value for the price paid"
Honestly... for the price paid, everything is an amazing. It is a very convenient location, very close to the highway. Also the location is very safe. Breakfast is good, staff is very nice. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Haven't tried the pool, but seemed nice and clean. Overall very satisfied, no problems whatsoever. Would definitely go back and […] would kindly recommend it to anyone looking for convenient hassle-free economic stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The tub and floor had mildew stains and the room smelled somewhat like smoke. There was an ash bucket outside our room. Were not allowed to bring any breakfast items back to the room except coffee. The room served its purpose and was convenient. Wish we hadn't gone to the little place down the road for breakfast that they recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"could inprove significantly"
Hotel was on the lower spectrum, but I've paid the same for a better experience down the road. Room had some cleanliness issues, including a slew of dust in the bathroom fan and what appeared to be mold along the tile. Morning checkout staff wasnt completely professional either. We wont be back here, there are better places nearby with about the same […] cost. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not a good location"
This hotel is located in a not so good area. I was traveling alone and very seriously considered just leaving and loosing the cost. Also it says non smoking but it smelled of smoke and when you turned the air on the smoke and air freshener smell was so over powering you could not run it. I have no tears in my eyes so it was very painful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not so good"
It is located in a pretty dicey neighborhood. The bathroom could use some maintenance, but since I was looking for a sleep-cheap, I definitely got what I paid for. Would not recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pictures of hotel do not show you what you will see out of your window in your room. Smelly and run down, Didn't even unpack bags. Got in car and left before it got stolen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Musty, dirty, and in a sketchy neighborhood"
I thought this was going to be a decent place to stay on my trip to GR based on it getting 3.5 out of 5. The first indication I was wrong was when I had to be buzzed in to speak to the front desk attendant. He was nice and helpful as far as giving me the map of the place and informing me about the hours of the continental breakfast and check out time. […] When I drove the car around to the back to park I saw what appeared to be section 8 housing (Gov't funded housing if there are different terms in MI). There was broken down furniture, old bedding and other random garbage stacked up in the lawns and on the patios of the residents. I was a bit concerned that my car could be vandalized or worse so I made sure to take all my valuables out of the car. When we arrived in the room the ac/heating unit was turned off and it was very musty in the room. There was no way to open a window to get ventilation so when I turned on the fan to get some airflow in the room it smelled like burning hair. Once I got the room to a comfortable but musty temperature it was nearly impossible to get the the cooling unit to hold that temp. All throughout the night on the hour it would kick on for a second and then stop. Then about 30 seconds later it would kick on again and then run for 5-10 minutes and then stop. I probably got about 3 hours of sleep since I was either jumping up to change the "thermostat" or I would hear it turn on and off as described above. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was an Okay hotel."
The night we got there we decided to go to the pool and as we saw no signs to NOT take towels from our rooms. We brought bath room towels down so we would have somthing to dry off with after swimming. While at the pool a few other people came in and swam along with us, however they left before we did and they took our towels with them. We reported it […] to the front desk and at this point the lady told us we were to have gotten pool towels from the front desk before entering the pool area, and that because our towels went missing (had gotten stolen) we would be charged an extra 20$ on our room fee, as this was not our fault it very much put me in an unfriendly mood with the hotel and the people running it.
