If you are traveling to Lansing/East Lansing (MI) and looking for an extended stay hotel, then Candlewood Suites will be your best choice! This hotel is located in a scenic and quiet neighborhood of East Lansing.

Michigan State University (MSU) is just minutes away by car/bus and this hotel offers free access to the university club which is just adjacent to the hotel building. The club features business center, SPA, pool, fantastic golf course and a gym.
The room I stayed had a good view overlooking the gulf course and it was fully equipped with a microwave, fridge, TV, DVD/VHS player, coffee maker, iron with board, kitchenette, table and executive chair, very decent queen size bed with feather and cotton pillows. I paid about $35/night for a stay over 14 nights during the winter season.
The room air conditioner and the bathroom was very good, in addition to the free wired internet access.
House keeping is done 3 times/wk for extended stays and there is a free laundry (self-service) for the hotel guests!
There is VHS/DVD library located at the front desk and it is complimentary for the hotel guests. There is a mini-mart as well for any incidental needs.
The hotel staff were very friendly and were always helpful. They also provide complimentary shuttle to airport on request.
Overall this place is very good for short or long stay, very reasonable cost, plenty of free parking, quiet and safe.
