We were looking for a place to sleep after looking around the Leelenau peninsula on the 4th of July. What we could find in the Traverse City area was way overpriced. Really friendly. Recommended a couple of places to eat. The room was clean. Good central location. Wish the checkout time was a little later as we had taken in... More

As others have noted, this is an old fashioned motor court where you can pull your car right up to your room door. My daughter had never stayed at this kind of motel and was a bit apprehensive, but delighted when we walked in the room. "Cool". Rustic and a bit worn but kept up with pride and very clean.... More

This is kind of a funny review and we did not stay at this hotel, but I wish we did. My huband and I were on our first snowmobile trip to Grayling and got lost on the trails @ night. The need to pee hit me in the middle of nowhere and I'm not the type that can drop my... More

Stayed here on a solo mini vacation to Northern Michigan. This is a classic motel that is well maintained and very clean. My room was tiny but it was arranged smartly and included a double bed, vintage desk, two chairs, fridge, microwave, cable tv, ceiling fan, and a new in-wall air conditioner that was nice and quiet. I liked being... More

The sign out front of this privately owned motel states"Guaranteed Clean." And CLEAN it was! Sandy and Keith are very pleasant and helpful host. Sandy's resturant suggestions were right on the money. During our stay we occupied one of the jacuzzi suites. To our surprise it had a full kitchen efficiency, stocked with plates and utensils.Furniture is dated and well... More

Fay's Motel is a small, independently owned property at the north edge of town, and is very clean and well run. It's right across the street from the Grayling Bicycle Turnpike, which is nice for walking, running, or biking out of town to clear the I-75 road hum from your head. The friendly, helpful owners, Sandy and Keith, have planted... More
