I travel a lot with my job and this place was so bad it was almost commical. The kid at the front desk told me that if I didnt need a receipt and would pay cash, he was "cool" with $40 cash for the nights stay. I got into my room and no joke, there was a bullet hole in... More

I have never seen anything like this. Driving in, we thought we'd been given the wrong address. It looked like an abandoned building. Inside was just as bad. No, make that worse. The rooms were dirty and smelly. There was blood on our bathroom wall. The pink sheets ( yes...pink) were stained. There was a pile of sand/dirt under the... More

I agree with all of the other posts regarding cleanliness. But the worse part is the manager and staff! We booked a room well in advance, only to arrive and be told they gave our room away...too bad. The manager claimed they had no other rooms...an employee disagreed with him, and the manager told him to "Shut up and stay... More

I dont know how this hotel is still operating. I never seen such a terribly run hotel, that is soo rundown. The staff is very incompetent and they dont know how to run a business. The building is out-dated, filled with mold, running water, leaks in the roof, dirty linens, etc. I can go on and on, this place needs... More

If you like the strong smell of curry and the feeling that you are being ripped-off to fund the owner's relatives in the old country then stay here. Otherwise avoid it like the plague (and unless you want to get the plague). There is nothing good to say about this lame establishment. Apparently some 'entrerenures' bought a run down former...

Where should I start? The smell in the lobby? Or the dirty stained carpets? Or how about the bed bugs and mice in the rooms? Lets not mention the water stained roof tiles. If you are looking for a great place to stay, try the Motel 6 or Comfort Inn across the street - this place is more frightening than... More

The second floor is now used as a boarding house. Need I say more ? Ice machines all broken, vending machines all empty. Pool locked and closed. The "upgraded rooms" is stark white paint over the vinyl wallcoverings. Great place for a murder/horror movie.

This hotel needs LOTS of work from the outside to the inside from the room to the pool area. The hot tub and the pool area were just gross. The water from the pool and hot tub smelled. The roof above the pool area was covered with mold and dirt, the roof most have had some pretty serious leaks. The... More

We arrived on a Friday night for pool tournaments that were held at the hotel. The rooms were smelly and you could tell that there has been no updating of the rooms. The staff was rude and didn't know what they were doing. My husband forgot to bring q-tips, so of course we went to the front desk since it... More

I stay in Houghton Lake two weekends out of the month every month. Usually I stay at one of the other hotels in town, however, this particular weekend was very busy and my usual choice was full. Never have I encountered a more clueless staff, they didn't know anything. On top of that the hotel is 30+ years old, I... More
