This is a very basic hotel in the Mio, Michigan area. I will start with the property's good points. The biggest plus to this place is that it is CLEAN. The rooms are simple and exactly what you would expect in a normal hotel room. There is a small fridge and microwave. We reserved a room with a king size... More

This is a non-descript hotel just off the main highway, characterized by friendly, casual management and an indoor pool and hot tub. The room was equipped with a refrigerator and a microwave which is ideal for families just completing a hiking trip. The hotel is not lavish in any way but it doesn't advertise itself in any other way but... More

Check in was easy...Easier than making the reservation. Front desk staff were very nice! Room was larger than I expected...good size, not a closet. Bed covers were VERY DATED and dark, bed sagged in the middle (probably would not be that much of a problem with one person). They had Air Conditioning....but it was very loud. Nice that they had...

We spent a night here while canoeing in the area. It is a small but very clean motel. The price was reasonable. I believe we paid about $70. The bed was comfortable. The large bathroom was clean and water pressure was good. It had a small refrigerator and a microwave. We were very pleased and have paid much more for... More

The good? Well, the hotel was nice and clean and the front desk staff was very nice. The Bad? It just so happens a large storm passed thru and took out power to some of the hotel. We were impacted. No light, no water (no flushing either) and not temp. control of the room. We arrived back from a fun... More

Convenient, clean and spacious. Great coffee, fresh donuts and muffins in the A.M.. Pool was larger than expected. I would stay here again if given the chance. Affordable, I would stay all over again.

Worst experience! Pool has algae on the bottom of it. We were in the hot tub. It was luke warm. Staff went to check and the motor was smoking. "Sorry it doesn't work ." " You are in it so no refund or discount" The phone in the room did not work. We asked staff. " They have not worked... More

Sorry if you were not happy with the hot tub, but as the desk person advised you the pump that circulated hot water stopped that night. It was replaced the first thing the next morning after I had a chance to go to West Branch and retreive one. The algae you think you saw is stains from the hard water... More

This motel is nicely situated close to the AuSable River and downtown Mio. The rooms are standard, but well kept and clean. Pool & spa are very nice. Morning coffee, juice and donuts are complimentary. Staff is most friendly and helpful. Owners are long-time Mio area residents and truly care about your accomodations and stay.

We enjoyed our three day stay at this property. It was comfortable and clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only caveat is that the hotel blurb says breakfast included. That's true only if you enjoy bite-size muffins and pre-packaged grocery store do-nuts with your coffee. But, a true breakfast is available at several near-by restaurants, as well... More
