We've stayed at this hotel a few times before. The room was clean as always. The bed was comfortable. We were in the back hall and there were only a few other residents staying at the time. It took 5-8 minutes of running the sink and bathtub to get hot water to the sink. Could be because there weren't enough... More

We chose this hotel because it advertised a restaurant and bar on site. Well, both were closed and the place is a dump. The pool is chipping away, the rooms were musty and the hallway was filthy. My grandson was just learning to crawl but there was no way I was putting him down on the floor!

We stayed here after a long day at Cedar Point. We checked in late only to find our rooms had a heavy musty smell. There was mold on the ceiling. The pillows were not comfortable and you could tell they were heavily used. As for breakfast, not worth it. We left with hungry kids and had to stop somewhere else.... More

I was looking for a hotel on my way from Philadelphia to Port Huron, Michigan. This one was supposed to be right off the highway. It was 7 miles away. . . .but still not bad distance wise. The hotel itself is old and dilapidated. . .paint peeling, etc. The room was OK. . .quiet, nice carpeting, a (mostly) redone... More

AVOID THIS HOTEL! I don't know how they could get away with false advertising! The hotel photos in their web site are not showing the actual-poor condition of the hotel. The nice beautiful lobby and restaurants in the hotel photos are all closed, dusty and out of business. I don't know how this hotel is allowed to operate. The TV... More

Thank you for taking the time to rate and review your recent stay with us. Although the ABVI brand is geared toward the budget-conscience consumer, there's no reason to expect anything less than a clean and comfortable stay. We do advertise a limited continental breakfast but a breakfast is not even required of this brand. The good news is that... More

Front desk clerk knew wifi was down but did not tell us, the TV was some huge block from the 80's with a picture you could barely make out. There were someone else hair on the sheets like they were not changed from the last guest, just remade. The breakfast was some cheap cold and stale mini muffins and coffee.... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with us. Although this is a budget-conscience property ($129 for the date you stayed is considerably less expensive than most all other properties in our area), you shouldn't expect anything less than clean and comfortable accommodations. We will certainly review our quality standards with our housekeeping department... More

Thank you for taking the time to give an honest and up-front rating and review of your recent stay with us. As is indicated in our name, and as you point out, we aren't a fancy hotel.

Totally gross. Room had yuck growing behind the table and the mold smell was horrible. Needs to be inspected by the health department! The carpet was peeling up by the window from the moisture and the barroom was from 1979. Just disgusting! Ugh.

I'll stick to the facts. There were no signs outside of the hotel and you could not see in the inside of the lobby from outside because of very dark windows. The restaurant inside was being renovated and the lobby very poorly lit. There was a sign saying that the front desk clerk would be right back. The actual hotel... More

Thank you, very much, for your straightforward and honest review of your recent stay with us. You are correct--we are a budget conscience hotel property--and are also in the process of renovating and re-opening the restaurant. However, our rates are also considerably less expensive than many of our competitors--even those competitors who may not have a pool or a restaurant... More

Stayed at the inn from Sunday, July 13, to Tuesday, July 15, 2014. Not too far from Cedar Point, which is its only positive aspect. Management does not want to help its customers out. Our Tv in the room was very snowy and pixelated, so we asked the manager if he could switch Tvs from another room. Well, he had... More

Hello and thanks for letting us know about the problems that you encountered during your recent stay. We will use the issues you raised as teachable moments with our staff. We do not have a male manager at this property, so I'm wondering if you mistook a male desk clerk as a manager. I bring this up because we always... More
