The most disgusting, filthy, and run down motel I have ever seen. We reserved 2 rooms and couldn't stay in either because of the bugs that moved in before we got there. We are pretty sure the ticks were throughout the motel since we saw some in the bathroom downstairs and our rooms were upstairs. We ended up sleeping in... More

We had two nights here. The room was clean enough and so was the bedding and carpet. We don't really care about shampoo, lotion etc because we carry our own for our road trips and the soap was OK. The breakfast situation is awful; nowhere to sit, no tables, fake juice, weak coffee. It's a pity, considering the cost of... More

Filthy. Paid $70 but felt like I was staying at a $30 roach motel. Stained carpet was ripped out in the corner. Walls were gouged with black marks and ripped wallpaper. Mysterious brown stains on towels. No shampoo. A dirty tissue on the desk when we arrived. Moldy shower curtain. Room smelled like mildew. Dude at the front desk was... More

Very rude front desk clerk. Torn screen on first floor window meant I couldn't have the window open due to bugs and security issues. Mold smell in rugs in hallway and room. Visible mold in pool and hot tub. No coffee at breakfast, which was only milk and cereal. Even construction workers staying there opted to go to Burger King... More

We stayed here a couple of years ago and the bath/shower curtain was full of mould, carpets were stained and the room and hallway stunk. After I complained they offered me a free nights stay next time I was down that way. I have the free room offer on an email that they sent as an apology however I've been... More

The Inn was close to the highway, with a couple fast food restaurants within view up the street. It was clean. The decor was current. We had the hot tub & pool all to ourselves. The included breakfast was basic but satisfied. Lots of value for a low price.

Staff was very friendly, no charge for our dog to stay and gave us a great deal on a four night stay. We will be back next year when we come back up mushroom hunting. Thanks for the great service!

I made reservation 3 weeks prior to our trip by phone for a 2 night stay for the king size/jazzucci room. When we arrived, we found out that the clerk (same one who took my reservation) gave our room away (perhaps for higher cost) by the time we arrived that afternoon. The room that was told to use was to... More

My husband and I have stayed at this location twice and both time were horrible. We were looking at property to buy in Antrim County and got there late both time after driving 4 1/2 hours. I called to ask they allowed our dog and was told yes, so I asked if they could hold a room at which time... More

I was on my way to my moms funeral and had to pull off the road for the night. The owner manager bent over backwards to make sure I was comfortable and even helped me check weather and road conditions. I would definitely stay there again.
