I have stayed here before, notice that the lobby and rooms have a strange smell now. Wish I would have know the pool was out of order, really needed the hot tub. Won't be staying here again if it doesn't get fixed.

My husband and I stayed in a jacuzzi room for a couples night away. Big mistake on our part. Our room was horrible. The jacuzzi power button was missing so we had to stick our finger in a hole to turn it on which I was not comfortable with, the heater had an element laying on the floor, our food... More

We booked this room for a 3-night stay during a golf vacation in Gaylord. The room had a strange smell to it, the floor needed a deep cleaning, the entry doors were rusted through and didn't close properly. There was no security at all in the hotel at the entry doors or the doors to the pool area. We had... More

Hmm. Super nice staff, the rest errr... I found pretending to be camping helped get through our overnight stay. We were in the gaylord area visiting otsego state park for a family gathering and this was the closest motel. Upon arrival I was disturbed to see a deserted, near rubble motel merely feet away from the Americas Best building. Anyhow... More

I'm kicking myself now for not reading reviews about this hotel prior to booking it. I was in Gaylord for one night's stay. The comments I've read are true! The room was very run down. Definitely could use a paint job. Drywall coming apart in the bathroom. The sink's cold water was warm. The hotel's website states there is security... More

Worst hotel I've ever stayed at. From the scum line around the hottub to the moldy bagel at breakfast capped off by the un friendly and unconcerned staff one wonders how ABVI doesn't pull the franchise name from this hotel. Book elsewehere!

I am amazed that whoever bought this place remodeled part of this hotel but stopped short of buying a new entryway side door. It didn't even shut because it is so worn out. Does this innkeeper not realize that their patrons like some safety measures? People constantly smoking around the entrance. It looks so low class. The staff was pleasant... More
