Very clean rooms and friendly helpful staff. Was planning a last minute getaway and was very pleased. Right next door is the canoe rental which makes it even better. They start a evening fire pit that was very relaxing way to end the evening. Also a clean gas grill was available to cook out on. The rate was also reasonable.... More

The rooms were extremely clean and the staff was pleasant. We planned a four day long weekend at the last minute and everything was booked up. I was very happy with the close location to the trails and our room. I guess I lucked out great price and lodging.

I stopped by the Outdoor Inn to rent 2 rooms for the week for myself and my work crew. I stood at the front desk for 6 minutes waiting for a sign of life. The front and back doors to the office were wide open, but no one was sitting at the desk. I gently started calling "Hello" but no... More

You are correct, you apparently didn't see the 6x9 sign at the registration desk that says "Press For Service" nor the "Private Employees Only" when you walked through the laundry/service area and proceeded away from the office 125' to a private residence and peered in the window. I'm not sure how they do things in the Kentwood area, but in... More

I’m sorry that your request for a room could not be filled. If you read the reviews by the people who have stayed here, you will see that most comment on how quiet and clean we are. We have found the three highest risk customers are: softball teams playing in tournaments, work crews and wedding parties/groups. The risk is not... More

Great little motel with huge hospitality! We were in town to ride atvs on the trail system. We knew right away we had made a great choice! Owners are friendly and helpful. Rooms are spotless and updated. We really enjoyed just sitting outside on the nice porch furniture enjoying the clean Michigan air in the evening. Plenty of good dining... More
