It was ok - we stayed here on a motorcycle trip from the lower peninsula. I would not recommend room 107 - it's tucked away near the stairs and felt like a closet. It was fine for sleeping and showering, which is really all we needed.

I stopped in and got a $49 rate because I am over fifty. The desk clerk was very friendly. He gave me coupons for discounts on ferries to Mackinac Island as well as one for breakfast. Told me about a free shuttle to the casino. Gave me leaflets on area attractions. Just extremely helpful. Had to call for a hair... More

Easy access and great parking with super clean rooms a bit on the stark side. Nice size to the rooms. No plumbing noise or noise from outside even though the street in front is the main drag through St. Ignace. Pay the extra money for the rooms with a view as they are in the back and face the Straits.... More

Definitely no frills. There was no hair dryer in the room, which was not a big deal. I didn't ask if the office had one for use. Other than that, it was very clean, the owner is very nice and we would definitely stay here again. When I am on vacation, I don't need a resort. I'm not in my... More

Outdoor sign says $49.99. We upgraded from room with view of Lake Michigan at $89.99. Came back to hotel after dinner and our view is of the stairwell. Too late to check out. Disappointed! Room seems clean but no Lake views. Should have stayed elsewhere.

We have wanted to stay here for many years, but this place was always filled during any car or truck show. But this time, a Thursday , we finally got our chance to stay here. The sign read 20% off for seniors and was flashing $49.95, so we thought it would be 20% off that! but no, the $49.95 was... More

We actually stayed here twice. This is a no-frills motel - no pool or exercise room - no breakfast - no frig, microwave or other extras in the room. The shampoo is in a small packet which is not enough for two people so you may have to ask for more. But on the plus side it is very, very... More

Room was extremely clean and well kept up. No frills room meaning that there was no mini fridge, no safe, no breakfast and the bed was a little hard.There was not a pool, either. The owner would not let us bring our expensive road bikes into the room which was a bit disappointing, but did offer to lock them up... More

Rooms average. Location ok. Price was comparable to other motels close. They offer 20% discount for over 50 years old. We had three adults over 50 and 1 child 8, they charged full price for the 8 year old. Sign says biker and kids friendly, it was neither. We were told rooms down stairs were held for there older guest.... More
