We chose The Grand River Hotel as I wanted to be close to downtown GR, but did not want to pay the very expensive [over $250] rates for the downtown hotels! We were in town one night for a concert and were happy with the free shuttle provided by the hotel. The hotel itself is an older property which has been [mostly] renovated. I can cut the hotel some slack for things like lower ceilings, smaller bathrooms, etc. The main bummer was the plastic mattress enclosure which was very noisy. I had read about this in other reviews and figured it would not be too bad, but it wasn't pleasant to sleep on. We ate in the restaurant and it was fine. Had chicken quesadillas and a burger. Last note about room- no full length mirror.
