Not super bad looking for a fishing area motel, but had a late check in so the office was closed room looked ok until turning down the sheets an finding a lot of hair in the sheets an on the pillow case.

Spelling??? Yikes!!! We were aware of this situation immediately. We know this room was cleaned properly, and yes toilet was flushed (we have well water and at times water can have a hint of discoloration) because desk manager was present when housekeeping cleaned room. As for hair we contacted our linen service but could not get definitive reason. As soon... More

Writing this a year later - regard our August 2013 experience.I was reminded of my horrible experience as we passed it on our way to another hotel this year, I remembered to write a review. We checked in while the room was still being cleaned, when we arrived back later that evening we chose to leave and find another place... More

This review was from a stay a year ago? No sheets on a bed? Hard to believe. Yes our maintenance man is a full-time resident. At Lakes-N-Trails we work hard and have a dedicated staff focused on insuring our guests of a clean, comfortable room. With 24 rooms available ranging from large suites as well as standard rooms it is... More

This motel is a place where Michigan uses for hathway house for Sexual Predators. They have ankle bracelets on. These guys are supposed to be around kids. I stayed there and was pestered by these folks. I could not even be in the room without them waiting for me to come out. Also the cleaning standards weren't very good. You... More

Interesting that this review was written May 2014 for a stay in July 2013. Why the delay? After further research we have discovered the reviewer is actually an employee that was fired in July 2013 for poor performance. At Lakes-N-Trails we work hard to provide a clean, comfortable stay at reasonable rates. More

This is a small motel, with the emphasis on motel. It's very clean and well maintained. The rooms are small, probably about half the size of a modern american hotel room. Everything is very spartan. It's a step up from camping, and served our purpose. We stayed one Saturday night for a wedding we were attending in a nearby town.... More

The room was very clean, comfortable and everything we needed for a reasonable price. We were visiting friends in the area and this motel was like our home base for the weekend. We had lots of room, kitchen, full size fridge, nice bathroom, comfortable beds, cable, and quiet. We loved Ev, the caretaker, who looked after us. We even cleanded... More

If your just looking for a bed for a night its ok. Stayed there recently and was less then thrilled about the place. Ive never seen a bathroom so small, the door wouldnt even open all the way without hitting the sink. Must have been made for little people. Dont expect to read the morning paper in there either. Sitting... More
