Great rooms. Friendly staff breakfast at 5:00 AM. Nice when flying early. Would not hesitate to stay again. Price was great too !!!! Beds very comfortable and right across the street from the airport. Not too far from great shopping in Petoskey or Gaylord

Stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions and had no complaints. I am not thrilled with hotel costs in general now-a-days but this hotel seems competitively priced. Very clean, standard amenities.

The Pellston Magnuson is awesome!! The room was very quiet. The bed was comfy with lots of pillows and the staff are extremely friendly. Easy to reserve online. Best price is off season. Perfect location.

Clean pool and great hot tub. Clean room and friendly front desk personel. Reasonable room rates. Nice ambiance. A pleasant surprise in the middle of nowhere. No bar so bring your own booze. Watch out for bears. Ha.

We wanted to head up north for valentines weekend. The room rates doubled in Mackinac for the weekend so we decided to stay here. Pellston is less than 20 from Mackinac City and its a straight drive there. If you are looking for your basic "Up North" hotel this is it. They offered continental breakfast but there wasn't much to... More

Thank you for choosing us for your Valentine's getaway. You're right, we don't sell ourselves on being "fancy" but, we are a really nice place to get away for a bit. Clean and homey are sometimes just what you are looking for. More

We stayed here the night before our early flight. Everything was great.. Staff was friendly. The room was clean & quiet. We would definitely stay here again. Just north and across from Pellston airport.

Our room was probably unoccupied for a few weeks before we arrived. A layer of dust was present and the water smelt like sewage both the sink and shower. It was stagnant and hair was present on the bathroom floors when we arrived! We did not feel like arguing.... Just needed some rest from travel and flight cancellations! Not sure... More

We had good service from the staff and had no problems, but it is starting to look a little rundown. Many items in the rooms need to be repaired and/or replaced. For example, wallpaper coming off the walls in the bathroom and the table in our room had a leg that was broken and so we could not use it.... More

Thank you, we really appreciate our regular guests. You will be happy to know that the WI-FI works all the time now, thanks to a new booster. We have also made many other improvements in the past year like, new TVs in the rooms and new carpet in the hallways and stairwells, just to name a few. More

The Staff was very nice, room clean and the pool was spacious. Breakfast had waffles, bagels etc. It is the perfect location to go skiing in Nubs Nob's or Boyne highlands, just an 18 minute drive. I would recommend it and we will go there again.
