“Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We had stayed here for several years and appreciated the fine view, location, pool and price and friendliness. After recent visit, however NEVER AGAIN! We requested a room on the Lake and were told they all were, but when arrived, faced a gravel parking lot and another motel. Insects, terrible dampness, dirty floors and "non smoking rooms" with all smoking neighbors who stood outside rooms and fumes filtered into ours. The pool, which had been a significant asset, is over chlorinated and the "spa" not heated at all. After swimming, we felt so covered in chemicals, that we walked through the mucky beach to wash off in Lake Huron, then took a long shower! Breakfast was very limited, with no juice, coffee so weak I think they have used the same grounds since we were there 5 years before.

We stayed there last night and right away when we walked in you could see the walls need washed dead bugs were smeared from the last guest. And a vaccum could of been runned. The view was beautiful and the deck area was nice and as long as you were not in the room it was nice. Fire pits they provide the wood and yard swings with views of the bridge. Then back to the room my son wanted microwave popcorn when the previous guest food was still in there YUCK the smell. Went and told front desk didn't seem to care. At 2am we woke up all sweating and hot the air conditioner broke. Told same lady she said we were the only ones having problems.... HELLO I'm all I care about and my family. Don't stay in room #16 we won't go back there plenty of other nice places to stay.
