Finest lodging in its class that I have used. This facility is located on the Hillsdale College campus and is often filled - reserve early! Friendly staff, quiet location, and complimentary sports complex access.

This was our second stay this year. The first time we had an older room (think 1960's time capsule) and this time we had a modern, clean, rehabbed room. VERY NICE. The new rooms are outstanding. I would rate the hotel higher, but I was disappointed by the front desk. Some of the people were extraordinarily nice, but most of...

My husband and I stayed at the Dow Center when we brought our daughter back to Hillsdale College for the new school year. We have stayed here multiple times in the past and always enjoy our stay! The rooms are on the large size and are always very clean and comfortable. Of course, it is so convenient being right on...

Definitely a step back 50 years as far as hotel rooms go. The only positive is the Keurig in the room and that the halls are quiet. Not enough outlets to charge electronics, room smells like grandmas attic...including the pillows! Ugh. Wish I'd brought my own. Stained carpets, some lights don't work, had to have the front desk reset the...

Upon checking they had very courteous staff. The room is a normal hotel room but it was quite and slept great. I was so nice and helpful that this hotel is part of the Hillsdale campus. Beautiful grounds.

We were here for a function at the College and you absolutely cannot beat the location. Easy parking, friendly, caring staff and right in the middle of campus. It does not get much better. The hotel and rooms were spotless. Wonderful stay. I would rate it higher, but the room was a little dated. The paint was coming off one...

The lobby, conference rooms and public areas all seems to be recently remodeled with excellent amenities. (Added touches like cloth towels in the restrooms.) The room was a bit dated, but it was clean and comfortable. We had a great stay and would definitely return.

This was my second stay at the Dow Center, due to it's location on the campus of Hillsdale College. The room was large and clean with a flat screen television and free wi fi. The bathroom could use updating but it was clean and the water was hot and really what more does one need? If your child is attending...

We stayed one night at this hotel for a campus visit to Hillsdale College. This hotel is located ON CAMPUS, so really it was a no-brainer for us to choose this spot. We drove over 4 hours to see this college, and really didn't want to squander our time with a hotel located away from campus. Ok...first and foremost...I read...

A time warp back to the 70's if you want to enjoy the old times. A Motel 6 style bathroom with rust and peeling tile. A 14 inch picture tube TV that I couldn't even see from my bed I was laying in. The heater was loud and kept us up all night. I spent $100 and I felt overcharged....
