We were too late booking rooms, so we were stuck with this place at 140/night. We were only there to sleep between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m., so we were sure we could deal. - The hallway on the first floor smelled strongly of urine in that permanent, hoarding kind of way, and our room window was against the indoor...

I reserved this room during the Ironman competition so there were slim pickings for accommodations in the area. This room was over $100 for one night for one bed, which I consider price gouging. The building was rundown and the exterior was actually crumbling in places. Inside, there was extensive water damage on all the walls and my guess would... More

We (My wife and 2boys) decided to take an overnight trip to Michigan on the spur of the moment so the availability of rooms in the area was limited. We happened upon the motel thru Roomkey and reviewing the photos as well as some reviews we booked the room. The only positive was, it was inexpensive. As we checked in,... More

I am writing a review because I had read reviews before visiting and I was a little worried but its not that bad. I stayed 2 nights with my 2 kids and the room was clean but outdated, no biggie. Had a good laugh at the very old TV and microwave but they both worked. Bed was comfortable and clean,... More

Our room with kingsize bed was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. It is not a high end hotel/motel but is was acceptable. I have had bad nights at other 'better' places where I have paid more so that stuff just happens. The nights (3) we were there during the week were quiet and we heard no noises up... More

Good price.. Not worth it though, the hotel is incredibly dirty. Stains on carpet and furniture and walls. Only reason we slept there was because bed seemed clean. It was a very dark and creepy hotel.. Wouldn't stay there again. I'd pay more somewhere ekse

The place had a Creapy factor to it. Everything was dimly lit and outdated. The restaurant was extra dark for breakfast. The food was very sub-par. It was clean, so that's nice. We ended up wanting to leave early. Cancellation was easy.
