    Stay away from the bar in concourse B. Very slow and not a great MI beer selection.

    High end of low

    Still one of my favorite airports. Grab some Quiznos in the main waiting room and head up to the second floor for a great view of the field and concourses.

    Hang out at the observation area to watch planes take off. Enter in off of 54th street.

    Small Town airport with lots of onsite parking and easy to get in and out of. Watch out for the dopes that park their car waiting for someone to come out in the arrival area.

  • Stephanie B.

    Great setup. Helpful staff. Quick service.

  • Blaine

    Definitely OK; broken Wi-Fi; lack of high standards and practices

    Blaine · March 1
  • Alex L.

    Check out the bathrooms. They're nicer than a 5 star hotel.

  • Forrest

    This airport is tiny and unorganized.

    Forrest · January 27
  • Edwin H.

    Long wait after landing because GRR's gate resources aren't prepared to handle two inbound flights at the same time.

  • Chris L.

    Security lines can get long so plan some extra time

    Visitor parking is very affordable here.

    For the size of this airport it sure seems to take a long time for your bags too arrive at baggage claim.

    One of the fastest airports I have ever been in, though I live here and wait till the last minute to get here for my flights and am usually running a bit. Quick security lines and small size helps.

    At the free parking area to watch planes.

    Great mid-size airport, easy to park across the street and navigate the terminal.

    Car rental is on-site. Friendly TSA agents! Clean bathrooms. Lots of easy access plugs to charge your devices. Refill stations designed for water bottles.

    If you're looking for the taxi stand, go to the door that says "exit to curbside" in the baggage claim area. It's poorly marked. Taxis to downtown area are between $32 - $40.

    You gotta be a real asshole to fly first class eh?!?

    Regional airport

    If you're in terminal B, eat before you go through security. This may change due to construction, but only a bagel shop is available on the secure side right now.

    Small airport that operates like a big airport.

    If you have any questions about your visit, make sure you find Miss Connie at the Visitor Info booth near the exit/entrance. Wonderful personality and knowledgeable.

    Very busy but very coordinated

    Don't fly much now...after 4 + million miles it's okay, but still absolutely love it...

    There is a Quiznos & a salad place. Your food choices are very limited. Otherwise, it's a nice, quiet airport that's easy to get around.

    If someone has tamped with your items, contact an airport police officer immediately.

    Check out the visitor information center at the baggage claim. Find info about Grand Rapids and even charge your phone in comfort!

    @Flynshine picked up my car at GRR, thoroughly detailed it, then texted me the day of my return and met me on the curb with my car. I would've spent more in parking then the cost of the $200 detail!!

    The line for United is about a block long. Ridiculous!

  • Karyn  @konorth O.

    I love the free wifi, but hate that Starbucks is before security.

    Stay away from the rental car counter toilets.

    dennis belanger · February 6, 2014
  • MaryKay M.

    One of the best small airports around. Friendly folks, coffee is great - what more can you ask for?

    MaryKay MacIver · February 6, 2014
  • Kelly H.

    TSA is outstanding here!

    Kelly Howes Litten · January 5, 2014
  • Daniel S.

    Line to check in and ticket counter and line to drop checked bags at tsa check in look the same. Ask which line you're in so you don't waste time. And leave 10 extra minutes for tsa bag drop.

    No Lines, great airport to use!
