There isn't anything fancy or special about this motel. The owners are adorable and extremely friendly. A friend and I were driving to Colorado from Massachusetts and stopped here for a nights rest. We got there at 1am and the owners were very welcoming and sweet. When we left, they made sure we enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean.... More

For the money, it's good. Everything is basic, it's not the Hilton so if you are looking for the Hilton go there instead. But, everything is clean, it is obvious that the owners care very much how things look. They also care that you feel welcome. Very nice people.Everything looks freashly painted in my room, no bugs in the light... More

Everything about this motel was run down, the furniture, the towels, etc. When we looked up from our bed, the light was filled with dead insects. If you have children, beware of the TV. There is one very filthy channel.

This motel offered a great price. I stayed for two nights. Each room comes with a carport (except mine-the owner was parked in mine;perks of ownership, I guess? But, not a huge deal...). My room had a wonderful very comfortable bed. It also had HBO, a fridge/freezer and a microwave. No coffee maker or any other amenities (but, at $60... More

I found Great Lakes Motel on Booking.com while on a drive from New Hampshire to Chicago. I detoured off of I-80 (Ohio Turnpike) about 10 miles to get there. It is on US Hwy 20. The remarkable features of my Room 15 were a king-sized bed, full size refrigerator with a freezer, a microwave oven, a coffee maker with coffee,... More

When I travel on the motorcycle, I am tired and have no need for extra fluff that I will not use anyhow. I need a quiet clean room and bathroom to get clean again and sleep. The owner is very nice and helpful, she and her assistant were good on the phone when reserving. She did not seem to mind... More

Okay, maybe it doesn't have a good view, but the bathroom has a window that you can open, which is a thumbs up on my list for many reasons! Not only did it have the blinds for privacy but had the cutest valance curtain on top!!! When we called for reservations, Mama took care of us. Just asked what time... More

I had car problems outside of Fremont on a cross-country road trip and had to get a last minute room very late at night. Mama, the owner of Great Lakes, made what was already a pretty terrible and expensive evening in Fremont into a comfortable and restorative night. She called me Bubu and treated me like a long-lost relative, offering... More

Been here a few weeks and just recently the owner entered our room while we were away. Didnt bother to call and make sure she could enter or anything. Constantly calling our room phone at all hours of the day. Entering our room atfter midnight waking us up. Its absolutely RIDICULOUS!!!!

We stayed here one night recently in room 115. It was at the end of the row of rooms. Each room has a little carport next to it. We parked with just the nose of the car in because it's so narrow, if you pulled all the way in, I don't think you could open your door. Still it was... More
