What a nice place to stay! Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent water pressure and hot water; spacious rooms. Uber pet friendly. This is an excellent place to stay, especially if traveling with your furkids. Conveniently located only a few blocks from excellent food and shopping. Will definitely be staying here when I visit Gaylord.

never stay here. We had to stay her for one night and I would have rather stayed in my car. The rooms are disgusting, the people are loud, I think I may have gotten a disease. I couldn't shower and I didn't want to sleep in the bed. It was one of the sketchiest hotels I've ever been in and... More

We received a good rate on this hotel, which is why we choose it. It was very run down and needed some updates. Room was large which was nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. Ok place if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep for the night.

We stopped in here for one night to get a quick sleep in before continuing on to the UP. I got a great deal on this hotel on Priceline, but when we arrived I understood why. The hotel is old, musty, run down, and a little dirty. It was clean enough to sleep on the sheets, but not clean enough... More

This facility is poorly managed. No one at the desk at 7:00 A.M. for checkout, no continental breakfast offering. The charge to my credit card exceeded the figure indicated on my receipt. Very unhappy with this experience with Econo Lodge.

It was probably a fun place at one time. It has three buildings, the central one being registration with a big open room, a cramped space where a starchy breakfast was available, and the swimming pool (which looked clean) so if you want to use it, you must walk outside to get to it. The building I was in only... More

We stayed one night as we were passing through. We wanted something cheap and this was. The inside was basic and clean enough. However, the hallways were dingy, the doors looked like they were used as shields in a war, and there were about 200 cigarette butts outside the main door since there isn't a garbage can or an ashtray...

Do yourself a big favor and do not stay here. I needed to find a hotel quick and did not check the reviews. Big mistake. I opened the door to my room and could smell smoke (this is a 100% smoke free hotel) and mildew. There was a dirty towel hanging on the back of the bathroom door and a... More

We were on a trip to the U.P. to drop off a family member for a summer job. We were really just looking for an inexpensive place to stay for the night. Our trip was hampered bysevere thunderstorms that had pounded us since leaving the Detroit metro area all the way north. The severe storms had obviously passed but had... More
