“2nd Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

This is our 2nd visit to Jasper Ridge and was not as good as the first time, the room was large and comfortable but had obviously not been cleaned well, there were bits all over the carpet and the bed was badly made. The bath towels are small and not very soft not what you expect from a hotel charging $85 per night, the breakfast was good on both occasions, we informed reception that this was our 2nd visit and there was no comment, not even well thats nice that you chose us again, we are Motel owners and we know what standards guests expect. On our U.P. trip we stayed at 3 Motels not one showed us to our room, something we like to do. Get your standards right or this will be our last visit.

The hotel was quite empty during our stay. I suspect that if full, you would hear some noise as the walls seem thin. The place was clean and the bed was comfortable. I don't think you'll find anything better anywhere close by. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We just got back from a two night stay at Jasper Ridge Inn, it was so nice to find a clean comfortable room and very friendly staff, nice to be able to chat with the receptionist instead of just getting a key and a smile. Breakfast was good with all that was needed, we would definately stay there again and would reccomend to travellers and friends, we ate the first night at the Country Inn a couple of blocks away the Broasted Chicken was to die for, so crispy moist and tender inside and all at a great price, the second night we ate at the Jasper Ridge brewery and grill, our reccomendation is to give this place a miss, greasy fried fish and congealed pasta (mac and Cheese) ok at first but ended up cool as a lump of pasta. Could well do with the carpets cleaned. Try the Jasper Ridge Inn for yourself, you will not be dissapointed.

This is an average hotel that in my opinion is very comparable to a simple sleep inn, knights inn, etc. Although a nice hotel, I do not think it is worth the price. It is very quiet and because of that you can easily hear the people next door. One of the beds in our room was very squeaky. For nearly the same price, I would stay at the Best Western nearby as it is a bit nicer. It is in a convenient location though and walking distance to the brewery, Mcdonalds, a movie theater and a family restaurant. I would stay here again only if the price was lowered.

In the midst of a long road trip, the hotel offered pleasant, quiet lodgings for the nice. A country diner within walking distance provided a decent meal before retiring for the night. Although the room was small, it was clean. The bed was comfortable and fot the bill for a overnight roadside stay.

Our 2-night stay at Jasper Inn was positive. Quiet...set well back off the highway, clean, good location, spacious king suite on first floor. Price was OK with government rate. Vanity area was well lighted & separate from shower, stool area...always a plus. Staff was very helpful in highlighting local tourist attractions. Rose was a bit "reserved" at check-in but ended up being positive & quick to meet any special requests. On the less than positive side,bathroom linens need to be replaced....very worn. Breakfast offerings were very basic & spread out on a long bar with no breakfast area seating....sort of like breakfast was just an after-thought to management.
We would stay there again if in the area.

As normal in most recreational area spots the rent isn't cheap, however just by having my laptop with wifi I was able to save about $50 and only had to drive two blocks. Most motel/hotels have wifi and I had pulled into a Best Western that was on the main road and it was booked solid except for the room I needed, which is for the disabled. The price was quite pricey for about 6 hours sleep I had time for so I pulled out the laptop, started her up, and I picked up the wifi from the motel and looked for other places. Found a place two blocks away that was $30 cheaper and drove over there. I told the clerk that I had AAA, AARP, Government ID, anything & everything and what was the best price. She gave me $20 off more than what it said online and I grabbed it.
The Jasper Ridge Inn is about 2 blocks off the main road and is very nice newer motel that has everything you want except a pool. There is a Brewery Pub almost directly across the street that not only made the best beer I have EVER tasted, they had a huge menu and the food was also the best of had at a place that had the name brewery in it.
Back to the motel. The rooms are large enough and very clean. They do have a continental breakfast which is what you'd expect, and the staff (all 3 shifts) were very pleasant and knowledgable. Another point is since it is a couple of blocks from the main road it is very quiet.
You could drive to Marquette about 25 miles away to find something just a bit cheaper though I don't think you could have gotten anything nicer for what I had to pay. Funny thing was when I was leaving I found out the same people that owned the Best Western own the Jasper Inn also! Enjoy the U.P. of Michigan!

Room Tip: I don't think you could go wrong with any of them. They're all quiet since the place is a c...
