I went on a family trip and figured we only needed a beds to sleep in for the night so we could go for a budget hotel solution. Since I was also bringing along my nephews, I liked that they had triple rooms with three queen beds. The room did not smell bad and the beds and bathroom seemed clean.... More

This is a great place. The staff is so friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make your stay the best. In fact, they even purchased a brand new gas grill for the deck because the others were out of order! Room was very clean and the three beds were perfect for us. Breakfast is good. Wifi is... More

Our first impression was that this hotel was older and could be a huge disappointment. Boy was I wrong (well it is an older establishment but who cares). The front office staff was exceptional. They helped us several times with directions, discounts, ideas, & calling for shuttles to the Mackinac Island ferry. The breakfast is a great way to start... More

This was our 2nd visit to this motel. The room was clean and neat. The breakfast was wonderful and the hostess was wonderful as well. Appreciated that the breakfast buffet did not close exactly at 9am, they stayed open for those late arrivals. Price was reasonable.

We have been staying here for years, this is our second visit this year, the third will be Labor Day weekend. Zack is always nice, getting us first floor rooms whenever possible (my husband and I both have bad knees and stairs are a killer). Also nice to receive a courtesy call after check-in to see if room is OK.... More

The room was full of humidity. The bath tube was dirty. Poor sound insulation with terrible noise which makes my cousin and I hard to sleep at night. The free coffee from the breakfast tasted like water.

I'm sorry to hear about your experience with us. I would definitely like to discuss this with you further as I'm a little confused on the restaurant part of this as we don't have a restaurant.

I am honestly in shock at how bad my stay was and that this place is still even open. The bathroom is so small you can barely fit in it, the chairs were broken, the air conditioning unit had broken knobs and was half falling off the wall, it smelled disgusting in the room, the "free wifi" was a joke,...
