The only good part of th motel is the price but you get what you pay for. The Gentlman that checked us in as very nice and that is all I can say good about this place. We had 2 rooms and they were both on the highway side which is incredibly noisy. The beds were extremely hard. The rooms... More

we live there for one night, the room is clean, and with fridge and microwave oven, a flat screen TV, but the room size is little bit small, not spacious, but it's ok to live for one night, and you may hear some vehicles moving the room at night, you can ask to reserve a room on the back side...

I was stranded in ispheming and had no other place to stay but my truck. It was 25 out and couldn't get heat. A local towing company recommended this place and thank God for the wonderland motel. Clean comfortable full TV nice bathroom. Everything. You cannot get better accommodations than this. Thank you!

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights last week and had a great stay. The room was extremely clean and well maintained. We requested a room on the back side away from the highway and found it to be very quiet. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The beds were of good quality and very comfortable. The bathroom... More

Walking into the lobby I had hopes for the room. The owner was helpful with restaurants and places to walk. the room was another matter. The carpet was dingy and worn at the door. Wooden window frames had mold. Shades patched with packing tape. It was supposed to be a nonsmoking room but there was a melted hole in the... More

After reading the reviews I tried out this place. Nice and clean. Our room was on the backside so the highway sound did not effect us. I always travel with a fan and ear plugs (husband snores) :) BUT I think I would need them anyway if I were on the highway side. It is a great value.

This is a very nice and extremely clean budget motel. Although it is a dated property, it is definitely well maintained. I agree with the reviewer who commented on the lighting and the towels. The lighting in the bedroom and the bathroom is way above average, and the towels were amazingly thick and soft. Since the property is on the... More

Family run small motel. Room dated but very clean. The couple that run this are very nice and accommodating. Good value for the area. Just wanted a room and did not want to pay chain hotel prices. Saw this reviewed as clean so knew it would be a good spot to stay.

Clean, budget place to stay. Great lighting (typically I've found most hotel and motels have poor lighting, but this room had excellent lighting). Nice towels for a budget motel. Small bathroom, but everything was clean and nice. The owner was very nice too.

My wife and I stayed here one night. Very clean, comfortable beds, & very nicely-decorated rooms. We didn't see any breakfast, & didn't use the WIFI, so I can't really say much on those. However the couple who runs the motel is very friendly and accomodating. If you're looking for the best-value lodging in Ishpeming, this is the place to... More
