Where to Stay at Mighty Uke Day
We have a new official Mighty Uke Day lodging facility, the Quality Inn University. It is much nicer than the American Inn we had been using, is just as convenient, and has a perfect room we can use for late night jamming. They are offering us a special Mighty Uke Day rate of $74 + taxes for a standard room, call (517) 351-1440 for a reservation and tell them you’re with Mighty Uke Day. It’s directly east and just a few miles away from Old Town at 3121 East Grand River, here’s a map from there to Sir Pizza.
The Cozy Koi is a wonderful bed and breakfast just blocks away from Old Town Lansing. We have had Mighty Uke Day attendees stay here the last couple of years and they’ve loved the facilities and hospitality. Click on the logo for details about the rooms and how to make a reservation.
