Cozy Koi Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Lansing B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 October 2016

I needed a room for 1 as I was in MI for a baptism of a relative. I waited til the last minute before finding a room. No hotels, or airbnb's were available close by due to the MSU football game that weekend. I called Cozy Koi BnB and was able to secure a room for Saturday night. The neighborhood was ok-close to downtown/Cooley Law School. The room on the first floor of one of the Cozy Koi BnB's I chose did not have a door but a curtain. As far as I knew there was only one other family staying upstairs so I relented. The tiny twin bed room had its own tiny bathroom. Decor was vintage and Victorian. Breakfast served at 8 am the next day was fine. It included: homemade bread and jam, OJ or cranberry mango juice and an egg casserole along w/ coffee, tea and milk. The owner was curt when she showed us the room but by the next morning she was charming and pleasant.

Room Tip: There were 2 different homes with rooms to choose from. You'd have to ask to see what was availa...

Traveled to Lansing during 2016 MSU Homecoming weekend. Whole experience was delightful! The room was reasonably priced and the sumptuous breakfasts were made fresh every morning. The property is easy to find and by car is just minutes away from major freeways and MSU main campus. Diane the Innkeeper is very knowledgeable about the area and touristy stuff to do in and around Michigan's capital. Cozy Koi is a great resource for the city of Lansing. -kaf

Room Tip: If you can't do stairs, request the "Ponder Room." Great view of the koi pond from the...

My mom and I were heading to a conference in Lansing and needed a one night stay prior to checking in. Diane and Teddy are a JOY, breakfast and conversation were great. Parking was not great, up a very narrow, walled driveway. I was told to park next door (at second home) for easier parking, which I attempted to do when we returned from dinner, BUT there was a handy man working on a job with his truck in the way at 8:00 pm on a Wednesday night. Weird. Also, on the road out front, everything is metered parking. :(

Room Tip: We stayed in the main house, ground level, which was easy access for my elderly mom.

I can't say enough about the quaintness of the Cozy Koi...a walk back in time, when life was simpler and problems could be solved sitting around her beautiful dining room table...Diane, the owner, has lovingly restored this home and freely shares its history. Although on the go most of my visit, I took time out to reflect with her Koi and charming Schnauzer, Teddy. Diane is quite the historian and as I am visiting from CA, was delighted to hear some of Lansing's history. Diane knocked herself out providing 5 Star breakfasts and hospitality. She even included a dear friend of mine for breakfast!

Room Tip: I was in the downstairs Pondering Room which provided excellent access to come and go as I liked.

My friend and I choose to stay one night.
All was fine with accommodations though I personally prefer a simpler room decor with fewer knickknacks. The rooms have themes with the trinkets, however, I prefer space to set my own items on the desktop or bedside table in the room during my stay.
Our host Diane, was friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating and served a wonderful filling breakfast.

Hello Travelers! The Cozy-Koi was perfect spot for my Ole-town pleasure trip. I stayed in the African Room which is located in the second building (yellow house next door). My room was very clean and the bed was VERY comfortable. The bathroom was equipped with a handicap shower and a cute vanity for those who need extra mirror space. The host (Diane) is very charming and full of Lansing history. I enjoyed our business conversation over breakfast. She prepared a hearty breakfast that filled me up until dinner that evening. She is very knowledgeable on real estate and property management. The Cozy Koi will be my home during any business in Lansing. Thanks Diane for the wonderful hospitality!!!

We have stayed with Diane on numerous occasions since our daughter moved to Lansing in 2008. It is always an excellent experience; Diane has become like family. We continue to stay in the African room with the king sized bed. It is handicapped accessible and has its own entrance. The breakfasts continue to be wonderful--especially the stuffed french toast with Diane's own raspberry syrup! Yum.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a theme and different sized beds. If you need handicapped accessibility, ask for...
