All the homeless people who've been staying at the Magnuson Hotel in Lansing are out.

It didn't go as smoothly as the city or the owners were hoping. It took until just before 6 p.m. Friday to convince the last person to unlock her door and come out.

Nine people were in the hotel as of Thursday night, that's down from the nearly 100 from earlier this year.

The hotel's owner wanted everybody out so the building can be renovated.
