When it’s time to pack up the family and head for a stay in Michigan’s capital region, you may want to look for a hotel that offers something that everyone can enjoy. safely. And what we mean, is to look for accommodations that come with a pool following safe protocols. It’s a fact that kids return from a vacation that's chock full of new adventures, yet all they remember is the pool time that they shared with the family. You can find all kinds of other amenities at the hotel besides the pool, but don’t forget that splash time equals family memories.

Our local hoteliers are practicing all the protocols to keep you safe. Limiting time in the pool with restricted number of people allowed and sanitizing between uses. Depending on the pool size, some are limiting the pool to a single guest room for a half hour block of time. Ask either when you book your room or during check=in whether you need to sign up for a certain time or its a first come basis.
