We stayed for a whole week. The Staff were excellent--really outstanding!!! They were very helpful with everything, both hotel related (e.g., helping with a TON of luggage we had) and non hotel related (excellent restaurant recommendations and directions to the zoo). The hotel was really comfortable and clean. Pleasing decor. Starbucks right there within the same building. Loved the Farmer's Market right outside the hotel (Wed and Sat--really good food--try the taco stand!). Great view of fireworks and hot air balloon events over the Fourth of July right from our room. So clean, fresh towels every day. The pool and hot tub were WONDERFUL. So great to have a place to relax and play every day. Wonderful for children. Right next door to a water park--had a fun time there one day. Extremely close to a WONDERFUL Mexican Restaurant called Nina's--went there twice. Yum. Very close walking distance the river walking park for beautiful walks, great food (Arcadia was GREAT, also bakeries), fun bookstore, a number of churches. The only reason I marked a 4 is that it took us a little bit to get used to the trains that run through Battle Creek. But if you think of it historically, it helps!
Was in town for business at the same time of the NJCAA Regional Baseball Tournament. The desk staff let me know that 3 teams were staying at the hotel, but made special effort to place me in as quiet a corner of the hotel as possible.
The room was clean and very comfortable...
Arrived to a clean room with 2 queen beds with lots of space to move around. Definitely an older hotel that could use some upgrades. It was a one night stay for a swim meet in the area. Would stay here again.
Hotel was nice, room was clean, however it was FREEZING temperature in room was 60 degrees. Water pressure wasn't as good as most hotels and faucet on sink sprayed all over the place. Otherwise, nice, wasn't at all impressed with the breakfast selection. Would stay again and would recommend.
My room was clean, but some things could be improved. The alarm clock was unplugged. I had to move the mattresses on the 2nd bed to get to an electrical plug for it. There is no wall switch to turn on any of the lights in the room area. So you turn on lights at the sink when you enter the room, then you walk through a dark room to find individual switches for each of the lights. TVs are nice but there is only a guide showing what channels are available. There is ni guide for what is showing on any of the channels. There are only small paper cups available in the room. Hot coffee from the room coffee maker and my soda leaks almost immediately. The room arrangement of desk, desk chair and chair was not very comfortable snd should be rearranged. The room sleeps 4 but only seats 2. The room had 2 very small trash cans but needs at least 1 medium trash can. There was a maid's cart in the hall in front of an open maid's room during my entire stay. The cart had dirty and clean towels and supplies on it at all times. All if the staff members I came in contacts with were very nice and professional but should have been wearing a shirt with some kind of Baymont identification so you would know they are staff.
