We were traveling & required a dog friendly hotel, options were limited for this area. I thought well it can't be that bad if it has an indoor pool & hot tub, those are expensive amenities to maintain and so cleanliness must be high priority. Well we never used either amenity as the hot tub was closed for repair. Positives... More

Do not stay at this place. I asked for a complete refund 20 minutes after arrival. The room was very dirty. There was a pubic hair on the toilet seat and a giant burn mark on the wall. The smell was awful too. After arguing with the unprofessional staff I was only able to get half of the refund. The... More

This hotel is not the worst Econo Lodge that I have stayed in but it was disappointing. The price and location was the main reason we stayed here. The hotel needs better maintenance. Had an accessible room with king bed. The room was adequate size. The bed was comfortable. The blanket was very rough texture. The rug was dirty and... More

I recently stayed at this outstanding establishment in early January. We were greeted by a world-class orchestra, which can be heard on 88.5 on the drive there. The hallway had a soothing aroma of fresh exotic herbs. The room was wonderfully outfitted with Brazilian cherry floors in the bathroom, which were complemented perfectly by the pink drapes. The Feng shui... More

My husband and I were on our way back from downstate for a funeral. The location of this hotel is the only nice thing I have to say about this place. The front desk person was drunk and had drool all over his shirt and other things I don't care to know. The hot tub smelled like urine, there was... More

We arrived after a wonderful day of visiting the local vineyards. Upon entering the room we first noticed the horrible stench! The bathroom had several cockroaches, there were spiders in the corners, dirty floors, and bullet holes in the door! We did not stay! Demanded our money back and headed to Boyne Highlands, which was fabulous!

We stayed for a business trip over the Labor Day weekend. This was our first and last stay here. I had a bad feeling at checkin-starting with the fact that the front desk person couldn't find my reservation-then told me it was booked for a day earlier and it would be a "problem" removing my charge for the wrong day-I'm...

We had to stay at this Econolodge because we were late to enter a baseball tournament and this was the only place that had 10 rooms available. We know why now. When you enter, you have to enter through a cloud of cigarette smoke. There are flower pots with a minimum of 500 cigarette butts in them. You entered the... More

I stayed 3 days here. Great customer service. Nice location for our needs. Our room was missing a toilet paper holder. You had to step up almost 18 inches into the shower with low pressure and wall paper coming off the walls in the bathroom. Pool and hot tub nice but small. The continental breakfast is basically the waffle machine.... More
