If you are driving across central Michigan and need a place to crash, you might check out the Lone Pine. Sometimes when you check into a budget place you are rolling the dice, but here the rooms are clean and nice-smelling and everything is in good working order. Although my room was small it had a fridge. It's an older "motor lodge" type of motel with only a dozen or so rooms, but the advantage is that you can park outside your room. They are also pet-friendly but you will need to let them know up front. An added bonus is that there is an awesome little pizzeria across the street, and a really nice park about a block away. The motel is family-owned and the staff is very friendly. A great little property for a quick turn-around if amenenities are not important.
