    Very Good8.0
    Stayed for our first wedding anniversary
    Stayed for one night as we travel through Michigan. The hotel was very convenient to local establishments. The only issue was that the pool was not very clean.

    Not impressed, but not horrible.
    The hotel worked for us, but was not impressive by any means. The continental breakfast was sufficient and the hotel was conveniently located - the front desk staff wasn't helpful at all, so we had to do our own research and make calls to get our questions answered.
