I think I stayed at a bad time when Managment was having problems with staff. Owner/manager (I think) was so short tempered and insulting when questioned on pricing. Would sleep in car or tent before I would go back there.

We stay two nights in August. The room was very clean and comfortable. The motel is very conveniently located for using the ORV trails. We will definitely stay there again!

We originally had reservations fro the North Start Resort..when we got there it was like soemthing out of THe Deliverance! We left there and saw the Mio Motel. Went inside toask if they will let us get a room on such short notice with a dog. The Owner was a true gentleman! He gave us a key to let us check out the room BEFORE we rented it. He told us he had just put in a hlaf million dollars in rentaovations and you could tell. Brand new carpet. Brand new dressers. THe room was HUGE. THe beds had brand new mattresses and we had an amazing stay. The owner even called our room the next morning to ask how our stay was and to advise us that next time we go somewher to stay to check out the room first.....great advice! Will be staying again!!

We spent two nights at the Mio Motel in early June as part of a two week trip to Canada/USA from the UK.

We were visiting Mio as Michigan is the only place in the world where
Kirtland's Warbler breeds. The US Forest Service Ranger Station on the outskirts of Mio runs tours at 7am daily from mid May to mid June
to show people these wonderful birds. There are also tours from Grayling, but we chose Mio as it is much more central to the jack pine area and to other birding locations.

The Mio Motel is an ideal base for birders at this season, it is used both by independent travellers like us and bird tour groups. It is situated on Highway 33, the main (only?) street in Mio. It is right next to McDonald's which was handy for an early breakfast on the day we took the US Forest Service tour.

The motel is nothing fancy, typical two storey L shaped motel block, but rooms are clean, nicely decorated and furnished with comfortable beds and lots of space. Fridge and microwave are provided. Bathroom was small with only a shower in the room we had, but adequate. Price was very reasonable at $60 per night.

At the recommendation of the owner, we ate dinner at Lena's on the main street (look for the pink elephant!). Food was good quailty, small town diner style with massive portions at very reasonable prices - nacho grande was a killer, hand dipped shrimp very good.

We also tried the Au Sable Restaurant opposite the motel for breakfast one day, which was OK, though make sure you order from the menu rather than opt for the breakfast buffet - the cooked items were
so dried out that they were stuck onto the hot plates!

We enjoyed our stay in small town Mio - and we saw the Kirtland's Warbler, it's great claim to fame. Well worth the trip.
