When we stayed last year the review we gave was pretty good, which prompted us to stay again. Unfortunately, we probably would not stay again. This time some of the vending machines did work but the cleanliness of the place left a lot to be desired. The stairway to the second floor was very dirty when we arrived and was... More

the hotel is very good for a one night stay we spent a night on our way to door county. It is in what seems to be the old section of town, but in walking distance to a few resturants and pubs if you need to relax..Across the street is a good little dinner for a heartier breakfast although the...

Being located directly across the street from the police station is a plus, but it would have been nice had they turned on the heat in the hallways, and actually installed some decent lighting so I we didn't feel we were walking around through tunnels. The vending machines were a confusing rip-off, and the breakfast room was as dirty as... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night between a round trip on the car ferry Badger. We chose to walk the approx. 6-8 blocks and upon the Econo coming into view we thought, oh, oh. But we had a reservation and were greeted pleasantly by Raji, who admonished us for not having called for a pick up ride.... More

We spent two nights here and were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable beds. The hotel is a bit dated but it is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I was actually surprised by how big the room was for the price, not huge, but a nice size for the two queens in our room. We were on the... More

We crashed at this hotel after taking the Badger across Lake Michigan. we arrived in the middle of the night (1.30am) and check-in staff was friendly and efficient to get us into our room. the rate is great at only 60 dollars, but dont expect the Hilton. Everything is clean, but the hotel is a little dated and basic.

Decide to take the night cruise on the SS Badger. Checked motels this one was cheap and close to the dock. After booking I read some reviews, wasn't sure then. But decided to go with it. How bad could it be. Wow! what a great surprise. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, the bathroom spotless, and the air... More

This hotel is dated, but it is very clean and inexpensive. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is downtown near the car ferry. Free wi-fi was a bonus. We will choose this hotel again.
