"Great hotel in proximity of our plans for the week"
Super comfortable beds and pillows. Pool and hot tub area very clean and inviting. Friendly staff right down to the maintenance guy. All very helpful. We did have one small issue. My 14 yo son had left his $12 watch and his paracord bracelet on the tv stand one day and it was gone when we returned that day. Sadly, temptation gets the best of people. We prayed for that individual. Otherwise we would stay here again for sure, cause it was great in every other way.
It appears the building had been renovated relatively recently....nice lobby, pool, breakfast area, etc. However, second floor hallway indicated that the renovations stopped short at the first floor. The mirrored closet door in our room was off the pivots and just leaning against the wall. The room still had the odor of smoking, even tho' there is a no smoking policy in force.
At the junction of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Rivers, the city of Battle Creek is about 25 miles east of Kalamazoo. Local parks are linked to the rivers with a 20-mile pathway, affording recreational opportunities such as biking, skating, picnicking, and fishing. Kellogg Arena is host to concerts; sporting tournaments; and the city's basketball team, the Battle Creek Knights.
