Older motel with dated decor and older carpet with nice beds, air conditioner that worked, in room refrig, microwave & coffee maker. Nothing fancy with good service. Continental breakfast is dry cereal, yogurt, pastries, biscuits & sausage, waffles and apples. No other proteins nor fruit. The price was right for our fishing party as we did not need to spend...

We normally stay at higher end brands but staying with our grand children's 4H group this weekend was perfect. They were very accommodating and the service was excellent. The rooms were very clean, great beds, and breakfast was good! Highly recommend this for families. The pool and hot tub was a great activity for the kids.

The good: The personnel at the desk are OUTSTANDING - 5 stars. Bless them. The bad: The facility. It is old, worn and the owner cuts costs everywhere he can. An old facility cannot compare to a newer facility but it could have room rates more in line with what it offers. I believe the operating philosophy of this hotel... More

How can you charge $87 for this dump? The carpet is old, the rooms are straight from the 1980's, the phones are outdated, and the pool was too cold. To add insult to injury, they have a draconian 1100 checkout. One of my favorites still has to be the pump soap in the rooms to save money. Could it be... More

I brought my UM-hopeful son to visit the campus and go to a UM basketball game. We had a great time and would stay here again. The free coffee and breakfast buffet in the morning was a nice and appreciated feature.
