Stayed here last year. Had trouble with the room, but they had a great outdoor pool which made it worth it. Went back this year, got checked in and unpacked. Went to the pool, only to find that it currently doesn’t exist. Feel like this...More

A little older and a little bit dated but clean and it's close (not walking distance) to MSU campus. Overlooks a Forest Akers golf course. Parking lot could use resurfacing. Front desk staff are quite nice, very helpful, and always friendly.
