Because Lansing is the political center of Michigan, this Okemos hotel is only ten miles from the Renaissance Revival-inspired capitol. Built in 1879, the statehouse is considered one of the highlights of the downtown area and is open for free tours. Also check out the historic and picturesque MSU campus in East Lansing, only minutes from the hotel!
This Michigan State University hotel is surrounded by a thriving sports community. Support the local Lansing Lugnuts at an Oldsmobile Park baseball game, or cheer for MSU in the Spartan football stadium, both within five miles of our hotel in Okemos. Or - join your favorite local team at Hope Sports Complex or Suburban Ice, both of which are a short drive!
Don't Go Home Without
Tour the entire solar system without leaving the ground when you follow the Planet Walk, a two-mile trail of built-to-scale planets. The walk begins seven miles from our East Lansing hotel at Impression Five Museum and ends at Potter Park Zoo.
Lodging at this hotel in East Lansing puts you near Interstate 96 leading to Detroit. Because Okemos is located in central Michigan, be prepared for cold and snowy winter days with highs in the 20s and summer days that average temperatures in the low-80s. Bring your walking shoes because there is so much to see and do in historic Lansing!
