We have now stayed at this great local suite hotel 4 times, and each time they re-affirm my faith in a good hotel deal at a good price. They are constantly improving! From the well-stocked kitchens, to the nicer showers recently installed, to the yummy, hot breakfast, it's all good. The suite is roomy, super-clean and quiet. We come here... More

We have stayed here twice in the past 6 months. Five of us in total, so the two bedroom loft worked great. The kitchen also was very handy. I thought the free breakfast was not worth the price (ha ha), but other than that, it was a good place for my family and I.

We stayed the weekend at Gatehouse Suites in order to help our son move into MSU so we didn't spend much time at this location. The time that we spent there was comfortable. The suite was very clean and spacious. The kitchen facilities would be great for families that are interested in preparing their own meals during their stay. We... More

The place is located within a couple of blocks from Michigan State University. Construction on the road that the main entrance is on made it nearly impossible to get in and out of. Rooms are nice enough. Cobwebs along ceilings and the earwig that I wrestled with in the shower leads me to question cleanliness. Quiet enough. Comfortable bed. Huge... More

I had to check in during a storm, not their fault. But the gutters have an attachment to direct rain water away from the corners... So it was instead directed in a torrential stream right in front of the door. No way to get in the room without getting drenched. So when I did get the key card in and... More
