Verified Reviews of Grand River Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great location, free shuttle."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Hotel is recently updated. It was fairly standard. Elevators were slow. My MIL's room had no hot water and they promptly gave her another room and a discount. The best part was the free shuttle goes anywhere in a three mile radius (not just downtown as previously thought). It was a good spot for guests for our wedding.

"Good place to stay all enclusive."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Needs to expand to pick up at Airport and a larger buss route. building is a little aged but very comfortable, staff were great.

02-Dec-2018 Verified Review, stayed from Wed Nov 28 to Sat Dec 01 2018 at a $101.15 average nightly rate.
"Unsatisfying"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
There were too many structural issues that should be fixed like peeling paint and chipping on bath tubs, dark ring around the tub, inadequate housekeeping of floors, tub, pipe under the sink. They were really gunky and filthy. All of this is unwanted but tolerable, what was not was the ant infestation and the flooding on 1st floor hallway. Every morning there was the wet vac going followed by huge fan. I had to have three rooms, the 3rd one had ant infestation. Then on Monday 27th check out in the restaurant while waiting on breakfast, ant crawling down my right upper arm. I paid near $500.00 for three night and got $71.50 refund for all of the trouble I had. This was not very fair. I should have had a 50% discount for all of the trouble. I plan to contact the chain about the rest of my discount. I gave a two out of five for the awesome staff and the awesome decorations inside the lobby.
