Bay Inn is nice, Crows Nest Inn is horrible! Found multiple pieces of candy, popcorn, and pumpkin seeds on the floor, moldy baby bottle under the bed, and dead bed bugs in the cabnets. We moved the bed to check for more bed bugs, and found multiple dead bed bugs on the box spring, and its stained black. Blood stained... More

Three of us traveled to Michigan to go birding, this hotel was conviently located,inexpensive and one of the three rooms was not in good shape, the plumbing needs some work. The other two were rundown and old, but clean. So if you are picky chose the Bay Inn next door for twice the price. I had hoped it was a... More

This is a very affordable motel. Staff is located next door at the Bay Inn. Pool and breakfast are located next door. This was a great stop for one night. The price was fantastic, rooms were small but very clean and neat. Breakfast worker (Jasmine) did an excellent job! Very friendly, helpful, efficient at keeping everything clean and stocked. Would...

The beds were dirty, stained and my bedding was full of dirt and sand. I had them change the sheets immediatly upon arrival. The carpeting... More
