We only spent one night, but we'd stay again if we ever get back to Big Rapids. The clerk at check-in was very friendly. It was nice to have the restaurant/bar right there. Our room was nice but we were in the end room on the second floor and the traffic noise was very loud. I'm sure they would have...

We stayed here for a hockey tournament at Ferris State with our kids. The hotel staff was awesome. They were friendly and accommodating. The pool was great for the kids and the hotel is very close to the college campus. They even gave us breakfast vouchers for being part of the hockey group. The rooms were clean and comfortable. They...

I stay at the Big Rapids Holiday Inn at least once a year, quite a bit more lately (son in college there). Over the last so many years it was becoming very outdated and a bit run down looking, though service, for me, has always been good at this one. They've renovated and brought the property up to modern look...

I stayed at this hotel and have to say their staff have to be the most friendly, kind, helpful and patience staff I have ever interacted with at a hotel. I have stayed at MANY hotels and the staff here was the best! The hotel and restaurant were clean, inviting and fresh.

From my experience, older properties can be a risk depending on how well the place is maintained and kept up to date. Aside from the elevator warning "no more than six people," everything has been nice. The views are out over the adjoining small hills. The rooms have the size that is more often seen in older properties. Since upgrades...

This was a one night stay, due to a college visit with my daughter. Front desk personnel were very accommodating. Room was clean, and bathroom was nice. Did not use the pool. Worst part of stay was eating at attached restaurant - See that review.

Desperately trying to find a place near Traverse City, MI on Labor Day weekend as we headed home after a long trip, we ended up in Big Rapids.

My husband and I spent one night at the Holiday Inn while visiting my daughter at Ferris State University. Check in was friendly and easy. The room was clean and well appointed. Although I have no wildly major complaints I was not " wowed" in any way either. The fan was extremely loud. The pillows are giant fluffy lumps, which...
