The Imperial Motel is a clean, safe, quiet, spotless, nice, no--frills motel in a row of more modern, fancier hotel chains. An excellent value for the price. It does not have a hot breakfast, but a Perkins and a Big Boy restaurant are just down the road. It does have an indoor pool. It is privately owned, the owners are very nice, and the place is incredibly clean, and a bit spartan. The decor is not updated, but it is not overly garish, either. There are convenient restaurants and shopping nearby for drivers. The cost is inexpensive. If you cannot live without up-to-the-minute style and extra shampoos, you may want to stay at a Holiday Inn or something and pay for that. However, if you want a safe, clean, comfortable night's rest, this is a reliably pleasant place to stay. They get much return business. It's a great place for parents of college kids who are attending Northern Michigan University. It is not a party hotel, from what I've seen. Plain, but relaxing, in safe area.
