Rated 4 out of 5 Decent Cat 2 Hotel
Overall this is a nice property, it has great lobby, a fun food and bar space. Elevators break down alot, and are old and clanky. Rooms are showing some wear and tear. Take the points as the breakfast buffet is not very good, and the service is even worse.
Simply keep in mind it is a Cat 2 and don't expect great SPG upgrades or services and you will be just fine. I am glad there is an SPG property in the area, so I can overlook some of it's shortcomings. I was a bit disappointed that the web site showed jazzui rooms , but I never get upgraded to one, not even with my suite night rewards. Stayed here many times, at some point I think I would get one.

Rated 5 out of 5 3rd Time is a Charm
This was my third stay at this property. Finally there was a great person at the desk, who acknowledged my platinum status and upgraded the room to a two room suite. She went above and beyond, and really made this my nicest stay at the property. As I am sure I will be in the Kazoo area many more times, and I glad they are starting to understand the SPG program!
The breakfast buffet is of average quality, but the staff is wonderful, coffee cup never goes lower than 1/2 a cup, and the cook came out and prepared a waffle with fresh blueberries in it for my mom! Nice touch.

Rated 4 out of 5 Decent Place
Very nice public spaces; a great place for family reunions, weddings, etc. at a budget price.
Disappointing that my Platinum status wasn't recognized at check in - even had to ask for the check in amenity.
Room is very comfortable - but has some issues. The bathroom fan doesn't shut off and is on the medium loud range. The heating / cooling is also loud. It's the old wall unit type. The soap, conditioner, and shampoo are in dispensers - shampoo one didn't work. I am personally not a big fan of shared dispensers.
But even with the minor issues, it is a good value, as long as your expectations are in check.

Rated 4 out of 5 Nice stay in snow storm
Michigan is a wonderful winter wonder land....with lots of snow this year. So because of the winter storm I put my parents up at the 4 Points so they could enjoy my older nieces basketball game and celebrate the 8th birthday of my youngest niece in Kalamazoo.
This hotel always treats my parents great. 1st floor room, since my mom doesn't like elevators. Close to a door so my dad can watch the car.
While the food is so/so my parents really enjoy the breakfast buffet and the staff dote over them so all in all this place is great for them.
While I am use to much better SPG properties and treatment in this price range, it is an overall good value and it is SPG!

Rated 3 out of 5 Average Low End Hotel
I have stayed here many times now. It never seems to get better, just stays average. It is clean and in a good location, but other than that, nothing is outstanding.
SPG recognition doesn't seem to occur at this property. I had three rooms booked, NONE were ready on check in. It was pretty late in the day before two of the three were ready.....no consideration for order of cleaning to get the rooms ready for a SPG Platinum.
Breakfast buffet is of average quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 Nice place
Overall this is a nice budget hotel. The rooms are nice, but the noise level can be high if the hotel is on the full size.
The food is of average quality at best, I wouldn't recommend eating here.
I had an issue of barking dogs on two stays now, the front desk was great and took care of it right away. However, I shouldn't have to deal with barking dog wile staying in a hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 Nice stay
Staff went above and beyond to make it a nice stay. Property is modest but very clean. Not many perks for Platinum members, but adequate, haven't been upgraded here yet - not even sure they have suites or not. Staying once more in a few days so I will post again. Breakfast buffet okay, but not many healthy options.

Rated 4 out of 5 Nice place
The hotel is a nice budget priced property. The rooms are nice and clean. However, this is my 4th or 5th stay, and rarely do they recognize my SPG Platinum status. Very few cars in the parking lot, can't believe their wasn't a suite to upgrade me to.
