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

Bed bugs in the beds. Also, tiny blood splatters all over the walls as if someone had been murdered in there and be person who cleaned up after didn't do a great job. When we told the staff, who seemed to be a family, they were extremely creepy about it as if they already knew there were weird things happening... More

We stayed July 3-6 2014. Although our room did not have a fridge when we checked in, the man at the desk, Simon, went out and bought one brand new when we explained I needed one for my insulin. It was clean, quiet, very nice. We will definitely be staying again.

I do not believe very many people have a good experience at this hotel. Walked in and waited for 15 minutes to have someone to even notice us waiting at the front desk...bad sign. Key cards failed often. Room was clean but blankets had holes in them. Light shade had hole in it. Light bulbs need to be replaced. Breakfast... More

I was super impressed with the professionalism and interest in our well being at this inn. Simon was very attentive to all details. I give him a 5 point rating on a 5 point scale. It was a pleasure to do business with him!

Upon arrival we found the new manager sleeping on the front lobby couch, snoring loudly. We overlooked the renovations and mess all around at the time, but were unhappy that the pool area was out of order. The pool was dry and obviously had been for some time as the paper signs on the doors stating "Pool Closed" were old... More

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.
