The room was comfy with an excellent TV package & a nice recliner which provided great relaxation after a long drive. The thermal heating unit worked well. The hotel is undergoing rennos so the entrance area was cold. Although I prefer fresh fruit for breakfast, they only had packaged pastries & cold cereals laid out in the entrance area. Thanks...

This place should be shutdown. The pool and hottub have been shut down by the health department, "due to lack of up keep". We checked in in the morning and then jumped on the trail and came back late that night and they had never cleaned the room at all, There was not a "continental breakfast or coffee.." Very dirty...

Made reservations, arrived at hotel to find out the pool and hot tub was out of order. Guy at desk tells us it's because the phone system is down and can't use phone in pool room to call if help was needed. Complete lie!! According to the stickers on the pool room windows it was shut down by the health... More

This place needs a gut job. The rooms are worn out and the bathrooms are beat up, although the place was basically clean. The air conditioner, TV and phone were all not working. Called the front desk guy and he persuaded the aircon and TV to work, but the phone was dead. Towels were thin. We were happy to check... More

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

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
