10/3/14, stayed 2 nights. When I checked in, I asked if there was a back entrance close to my room, and was told, “No”. Clerk said I needed to come in the front door, and go down the steps. After hauling my bag down those stairs, I had to lug it up another flight of stairs, go down a long... More

I reviewed this before and gave it 3 stars/circles. I'm lowering my review today. This place is just going downhill and I don't think anyone can stop it without investing a good amount of money. It wasn't the worst place I've stayed at but I think you can get more for your money elsewhere. I think my stay previously at... More

Absolutely terrible! Old, dirty and moldy. No fridge, no microwave and no proper shower curtain. Dirty GLASS CUPS. There was mold in the bathtub and in the toilet. The carpet looked as though it had not seen a vacuum in years let alone a carpet cleaner. There was one large size area but the ac that a vacuum would not... More

I stayed here on a business trip with a group. The motel is old but clean. There are a lot of different hallways to get to the rooms that are on three floors. Make sure you get good directions to your room. The room seems to have been painted and new carpet installed but the furniture is old and scratched... More

I was trying to think of something postive from our one week stay so I could write the good and bad. Unfortunately, I have nothing positive to say. When we arrived at the hotel the pot holes in the parking lot woke up our sleeping children in our car. The foyer area by the ballrooms smelled like a beer soaked... More

Upon arrival the lobby was very modern and clean. You could tell they host a lot of receptions there. Check in was quick but the directions to the room were confusing. The configuration of the hotel was very scattered. Our room was pretty old the carpet and tile were new but all the furniture was old and scratched and the... More

This hotel has some really good points and really bad points. I stayed in a few different rooms and there were some big differences between each of them. Some of the rooms have been updated with flat screen tvs, newer shower fixtures, fresh paint and carpeting. Some have not. I saw some rooms that were very small and some that... More

Overall very dry. Some tee boxes like cement. Amazing as there is water all around. Even some ball washers were dry. Layout good though. Not easy to go in on turn - hot dog table set up between 9 and 10. No drinking water on course but they did have a beverage cart. Porta john supposedly on front but never... More

Found this place online and booked a 3 night golf package. Fair pricing, golf course is fair and enjoyable. Hotel is old and needs lots of dollars invested. Not the cleanest rooms. Restaurant was a complete failure! Served a Michigan salad with no dressing because they ran out! Bar and food service ended at 8 pm on Sunday, really, where... More

Spent only one night at this hotel while attending an antique show in the area. The lobby area is very nice. The room was average. Could use a bit of updating but it was more than adequate for the evening. The continental breakfast is pretty basic. I have had breakfast buffets with many more options at Hampton Inns and other...
