When I rent a room for the night I expect hot running water and a clean comfortable bed for a reasonable price. This place was all that and more. The woman behind the counter was very nice and was accommodating in giving us a room on the bottom part (flat parking) of the hill for our motorcycles. The room was... More

My 3 year old saw a little bug on the bed. We moved the mattresses and were horrified to find bedbugs hiding in crevice of bottom mattress and dried blood marks on mattress. We put one bug in a cup and brought it to office to our surprise she accused me of placing them in bed and were just trying... More

Bed bugs are a very serious issue in our industry today. This is not a subject to be taken lightly and one that is acted on immediately. Although we have our motel inspected regularly for any evidence of bed bugs, we also follow up immediately on any guest concerns. In the case of this guest, our contracted pest control company...

Yes, Budget. No frills. Don't expect a buffet breakfast. In fact, the honey bun was inedible. But, I was very pleased with immaculate, nearly new tile in bathroom. Good tv reception. Good bed. Good deal.

Me and my husband were traveling to Michigan to meet family and we decided to stop for the night. The hotel was up on the hill but the view next day was beautiful with the leaves changing. The room was clean and comfortable beds. We will definitely stay there again.

One night stay on a Friday evening in mid-September. Room was clean with basic furnishings. A/C, lights and plumbing all worked fine. For $40 I wasn't expecting the Ritz and I thought it was a good value. Property is up on a hill and access isn't the easiest due to the steep hill. The parking lot had a huge pothole... More

When you arrive, the check-in girl, who speaks very poor english, will inform you, if you ask, that their continental breakfast (which is coffee and a honeybun only) will be served between 7-9am. But when you return for breakfast, you will discover that even though it is 7:20am, the door to the office is locked and a sign tells you... More

I had been traveling all day and needed a place to stay. we decided to stay at this hotel and it was a really good choice. The staff was so nice and the rooms were very nice for the rate we paid for it. I will definitely recommend this hotel to other people.

There were ants all over bed and in bathroom. Musty smelling. Desk clerk argued with me that there weren't bugs and didn't want to give me a refund. Then, after I had taken a business card she took it out of my hand and said I couldn't keep it.

Upon entering the room, I noticed a small security camera on top of the television (so it wasn't hidden) and the red light was not on. At first I hid it behind the TV thinking it might be for the cable but after much contemplation, I unplugged it from the cable box and stuck it in the dresser drawer. I... More
