We stay there when visiting family. It has been remodeled and has Wi-Fi. Owners are very cordial and American! When going crystal mining, this motel is very convenient. Several restaurants, very good, are nearby.

The staff was very friendly and the price was great. The bathroom sink and toilet were spotless. The tub faucet had mildew in the handles. The room was very clean, but the heavy smell of what I think was carpet deodorizer gave me a headache. The coffee pot was stored on the floor under the desk...not sure why. The bed... More

Arrived for our one night reservation in a non-smoking room that definitely had been smoked in, and recently. Bathroom had not been cleaned - toilet was atrocious!! Pillow cases were so old that they were ripped and frayed on the edges and very worn. We weren't expecting the Ritz and appreciate more than most an old, classic motel, but this... More

The owners are really nice and sweet. The pool is clean. The rooms are plain but the beds are soft and the water pressure in the showers is the best. And it is a half a mile from the Mt Ida Cafe, which is excellent. The Royal Oak Inn is the best place to stay.

We came up to hunt for crystals. I hate to spend much for a room anywhere and I don't know what makes the rooms in this small town cost more than I like. I prefer something with a fridge and microwave, but I can live without those. I do want a TV and wi-fi though. The wi-fi here works most... More

My wife and I stayed three nights, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the only reason I would give it a four is that they don't have a frig or microwave, but they do off free bags of ice, so be sure you have a cooler if you need to keep something cool. The owner and staff is friendly. We... More

Wonderful place; great value, convenient and very clean. Friendly staff that really cares and very helpful about the area. Plenty of towels and even a hair dryer. We would recommend Royal Oak to anyone visiting the area.

The price is low, about $45 to $65 for two people a night at the time of this review. The rooms are clean and have large bathrooms, good water pressure, wifi, a medium sized television, coffee, etc. There is nothing fancy here, no new decorating, no spa supplies, but what you are getting is a CLEAN room, CLEAN linens, great...

Our family spent the night here on a drive from Texas to Michigan, and were quite pleased. For the price, accommodations like this cannot be beat; the rooms were clean and quiet and the couple who owns and operates the inn were as friendly as could be (we met the mister on check-in, and the missus on our way out)....
