I had a flight to Detroit to arrive at 11:30PM and a reservation at this motel which is about 3 hour drive from Detroit. So I called two days before my trip and let them know that I would be arriving around 3:30 and they said that they made a note in my reservation to make sure it was held.... More

We checked in very late and just needed a rest with no frills. The room was nice and clean. I did however wake up with a pretty good back ache as the bed didn't provide a lot of support. Several people have reported loud people and slamming doors. The walls seem to be thin and people in the hallways are... More

We stayed here because it was the first motel we saw after getting off the interstate. We just needed a place to spend the night during our drive through Michigan. I wish we would have explored more of the area before checking in. We only drove about a mile past this motel & didn't see any place else to stay,... More

First off I am disabled, and when I booked I called ahead to ask if the room was on the first floor because stairs are very hard for me and I got no response. I should have known.... When we got there I saw the guy sitting watching TV in the back room .I called him multiple times and he... More

I have stayed at this hotel before and never had a problem. Seems it has gone down hill. The bath towels had some black marks all over them like they had been used to work on a car, gross. In the morning a continental breakfast is offered. I didn't want any food, just coffee. There was none to be found.... More

This was the 1/2 way point of the trip to the Marquette Area Blues Fest 2014.A nice place to stay, close to highway/gas stations/food. The price was very good for a holiday weekend . $$ Breakfast was ok.

Room looks decent at first glance. A closer look at the beds and you will see mattresses and sheets that have obviously never been replaced in several years. We just needed a place to sleep, so decided to stay, regardless of the fact that the highway traffic will keep us annoyed with the window that does not close. After sitting... More

So a family member booked 3 rooms for our family reunion, and on the 4 hour drive up north we decided to read the reviews... "Oh it can't be that bad!" we laughed! TRUST THE REVIEWS! Uh, you may or may not get lucky and get a room that's been cleaned. Two rooms were ok at best. The third was... More
