Interesting layout to this facility. Some rooms are like the old motels where you park in front of your room door, and others are more hotel where the door enters into a cooridor. We had the former and and found it very convenient for loading/unloading. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. All staff that we encountered were friendly, competent and... More

I stayed at this property just a month earlier and while it wasn't great, it was clean. Shortly after arriving, the front desk called and asked how thing were. I told the agent that the ottoman was filthy and the carpet was very stained. She said that after the public area person arrived, she would send someone down to check.... More

Hotel looks worn out inside and out. The remodeled rooms are okay, but, the mattresses are hard as a rock. No fan in the bathrooms, just the outdated sunlamps that they chose to keep when they remodeled. We checked in, then left for the evening. When we returned, we could not find a remote for the tv. When we finally... More

The original motel had a new wing constructed eight years ago. This wing is VERY nice and worth the money. HOWEVER the original motel is over forty years old and needs some major improvements. For the price being charged, one would expect a refrigerator and microwave. Instead, one gets poor lighting, a narrow room, no sound conditioning and a bath... More

This hotel was an exterior hallway motel that they did a conversion on to make the hallways inside. Unfortunately, the rooms are still 1980's motel quality. It was not worth the price compared to other, much nicer hotels within blocks. The breakfast was sub-par. We ended up paying for breakfast a few hours later when we all realized that no-one... More

This was my second stay at this hotel. I had the two queen bed room and like the first time, I found the beds very comfortable (may be too firm for a back sleeper). The room was very clean and the maids did an excellent job maintaining the room each day. The breakfast included scrambled eggs, breakfast meats, and breakfast... More

We were expecting a clean, modest hotel but the room was very disappointing. One of the "fresh" towels had a smudge and substance on it, and the bed linens also had a stain. Bathroom was not cleaned thoroughly after the last guest and we found mold on the walls. We were only staying overnight and had an event that evening... More

Good average clean hotel, nothing fancy just your standard hotel room. We were able to bring our dog and he stayed in the room. Breakfast was average, employees were nice and friendly. Would stay again as we didnt come for the hotel room we came for the dunes.

If I could, I would rate this hotel as a 3 ½ because it was clean and had a nice indoor pool but the rooms were pretty average and the breakfast was a pretty typical. We chose this hotel as a stopover on route to our Wisconsin destination because of its location and proximity to the Lighthouse Outlet shopping area.... More
