He threatened to call the police and have them visit the hotel room.... More

I have been staying at this motel for the better part of 15 years during travel to the area to hunt. I have come to know the owner and his family well. They are hard working and selfless people that would do anything to make your stay a good one. The rooms are clean and have refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers,... More

From outside this is typical North Michigan not chain operated motel. Inside you find very clean rooms nicely decorated with a lot of personal touch and south European flavor. Owner who runs Motel 72 is very friendly and helpful. Nightly rates are less than half what you find in Petoskey Or Mackinaw City. The only thing - do not relay... More

Made reservations by phone. Proprietor quoted $54.95 for a queen bed room for two. When we arrived he said it would be $59.95 since there were 2 of us and then gave us a room with 2 queen beds. We only needed one bed as previously arranged. Room was immaculate and looked as if it had recently been renovated. Everything... More
