I will never set foot in this place again. Check-in day pet hair on the floor and the bottom of blankets. Bedding had dirt in between the sheets. When I went to the office I was given clean bedding to change the beds myself. There was paint coming off the walls and the furniture had holes. On the third night,... More

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

I inquired about the bath curtain and the clerk stated they: Don't Use Curtains In Their Bathrooms!!! No towel racks to hang your towles on. The chair coverings are worn out and torn and so... 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...

I gave 4 stars because this little hotel is good for what it is, an affordable place to stay up north for a night or two. Check in is at the Bay Inn, which is right next door, you also are given access to the Bay Inn pools, etc, however, we did not use them. The rooms are motel, drive... More

I reserved this property based on the website photo's and the fact that it stated it had recently been upgraded. This place was awful - would of felt cleaner in a tent in the woods. 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
