While this doesn't go down as one the worst places I have ever stayed at, it isn't pretty. The room is very dirty and the carpet hadn't been cleaned in a while. There were open prophylactic wrappers found in the room. I wouldn't stay there again.

Don't stay here!!! I was travelling through and stopped by this location. There was no vehicles in the parking lot when I arrived. The outside looks in very bad shape. It looks abandoned. When I went to the front I asked to view the rooms first and the lady gave me keys to look at two rooms. I needed two... More

Absolutely filthy. I'm here and too tired to go anywhere else. It sticks horrible in my room. Deadbolt on the door doesn't work. Wore my socks to bed because floor is too dirty to go barefooted. Stay away for your own good!

The heater and AC units plastic case was smashed. Carpets were very dirty and worn out. In my opinion this motel has out lived it's useful... More

This is by far the dirtiest motel I have ever stayed in. I was travelling from Sarnia to the Soo via Michigan and stopped here for the night, as the weather wasn't great. If it wasn't so late with poor weather, I would have (should have) asked for a refund and pushed on. Instead, I brought in my own pillow... More

I checked into this hotel in the middle of the night. I didn't smell very good but I was exhausted so I payed and checked into the room. I slept for about 3 hours. I got up to use the bathroom and found that the toilet was clogged so obviously hadn't been cleaned after the last people checked out. There... More

The Ritz this isn't...but it is inexpensive & clean. Granted it is outdated. I thought the staff friendly. I felt safe. Would I stay here again--possibly if I needed to stay someplace in that area. It is one of the Motel 6s that have not been remodeled.

Clean, good price, older motel. Staff very pleasant. Price was right. Minutes to , Restaurant close by. Bed was clean. Center of everything, only 10 mins from Saginaw, birch run, Frankenmuth. Recommend for inexpensive stay but if looking for high end motel wouldn't recommend, but overall would stay again

Nice Place. Great rate. Center of everything, only 10 mins from Saginaw, birch run, Frankenmuth. Stay here and save bunch. My pref. was nice and clean room and close to the proximity. When I read the past comments, I was shocked to see it. Ofcourse, you pay $45.00, you should expect that service and not hampton frills. Be real.
