Flying here

MSU is a 75-minute drive from Michigan’s largest International airport: Detroit Metro Airport.

We strongly recommend that you book a seat on the Michigan Flyer Airport Shuttle, round tripĀ  tickets are approximately $54, the buses run several times a day, and travel takes approximately two hours aboard a comfortable, wifi-enabled coach.

The shuttle will drop you off approximately 8 minutes away from Candlewood Suites.

Alternatively, you may choose to fly to Lansing’s own Capital Regional International Airport.

The last few miles

With advanced notice Candlewood Suites will send their 6 passenger van to pick you up between 8am and 5pm Monday-Friday, either at the Capital Regional International Airport, or at the Michigan Flyer drop off (East Lansing Mariott). Alternatively we suggest using Lyft, Uber or a taxi (all options cost approximately $15).
