Best Midland Hotels (We personally recommend these lodging choices)

We highly recommend the Midland hotels listed below because we are extremely familiar with the area and the best places to stay in Midland.  These locations are safe and close to amenities.

See all of our personal photos of the hotels below. 

The H Hotel Midland

Downtown Midland (Closest to the Tridge, Dow Gardens, Midland Country Club):

Address111 W Main St, Midland, MI 48640

One of our favorite picks for hotels in Midland is the H Hotel.  Keep reading to hear all about our recent stay!!

We have stayed at the H Hotel twice and every time we love the courtyard with the firepits, lush modern rooms, friendly staff, and close proximity to downtown shops and restaurants. 

  • I mean this hotel is smack dab in the best location - walking distance to the Tridge (about 1 block), scenic court house and the downtown area.

The enclosed courtyard has several lovely firepits with benches so you can enjoy your evening around a cozy fire.  

  • There's a nice indoor pool and hot tub so be sure to pack your swim suit!  
  • Two more great in-house restaurant options are One Eighteen and Oxygen Lounge for drinks. 

The rooms overlook the Tridge, so be sure to bring your walking shoes so you can explore this expansive three way bridge (and park) that spans the Tittabawassee and Chippewa rivers.

Feeling snacky?  There's a nice little market with drinks and snacks.  

The H Hotel provides complimentary airport transportation to and from the MBS International Airport with advance reservations.

Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott in Midland MI

Downtown Midland (Close to the Tridge, Dow Gardens, Midland Country Club):

Address - 506 E Buttles St, Midland, MI 48640 

The Fairfield Inn and Suites is also in a fantastic location in downtown Midland.  They are directly across from Dow Diamond (go see a baseball game while you are in town!) and Midland's East End District building (grab sushi at Maru!).  Plus, the Fairfield Inn has a great indoor pool and fitness center. 


Residence Inn by Marriott-Midland Michigan

Midland City (closest to Meijer, the Mall, getting on US 10)

Address - 850 Joe Mann Blvd, Midland, MI 48642

This gorgeous hotel is tucked off the main road so it is very quiet.  You won't hear the highway or semi trucks while sleeping.  Plus, you can walk to one of our favorite steak restaurants, Lucky's, for dinner.  

Our favorite features:

  • Great outdoor space with fire pits-I mean, check out how awesome it is!
  • Fantastic indoor pool near the outdoor space
  • Kitchens available
  • Fitness room

Deciding between the Residence Inn or SpringHill Suite?  See a video of their locations!

SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Midland MI

SpringHill Suites by Marriott is located right off Joe Mann road, across the street from Lucky's Steakhouse...They have outside seating and fantastic lobster and steaks (just sayin'). 

It's very conveniently located with easy on and off of US 10, very close to Buffalo Wild Wings, Meijer and gas stations.  See my video above!

Hampton Inn Midland

Midland City (closest to Meijer, the Mall, getting on US 10)

Address - 6701 Eastman Ave, Midland, MI 48642

The Hampton Inn is very conveniently located, safe, up to date and close to lots of restaurants.  Plus, it's super easy to hop on US 10 from this hotel. Meijer (groceries and gas) is a stone's throw away. You are only a couple miles from the downtown area, Midland Country Club and Dow Gardens. 

  • Clean, modern rooms
  • Full breakfast
  • Lovely lobby hang out spots with a fireplace
  • Indoor pool
  • Gym

Holiday Inn Midland MI

Address: 810 Cinema Dr, Midland, MI 

We love the Holiday Inn as it is home to one of our favorite restaurants, Big E's! (They have great chicken tenders (we've ordered these wayyy too many times), salads, wings and beer selection).

The Holiday Inn Midland is walking distance from the cinema and very close to US 10, lots of restaurants and Meijer (gas, groceries, snacks).  Very safe location.
