We chose this hotel because it was the location of a wedding my husband was a participant in and we wanted to be close. Check in was miserable. We arrived at 9pm and there was not an attendant at the desk. The front desk phone was ringing off the hook. After finally getting checked in our room was out dated and marginally clean. After driving from Colorado to Michigan I was looking forward to sleeping in the next morning. Unfortunately the cleaning staff in the next room spent the 7am to 8am ramming the sweeper against the wall and the adjoining door. Later we needed to replace a key and we found out that the front desk employee lost the check in form we signed.
