“Good location, clean hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

We stayed here for five days while in the U P of Michigan, and even though it takes a while to get anywhere in the U P, because it's so dense with wild land, this was a convenient location. The only caveats to keep in mind are: there are very few King rooms and they fill up quickly. This is nice; however, because no families are allowed in the King rooms and they're in the far section of the hotel - nice and quiet. There are no balconies, so if someone smokes, you have to go outside. The place is pretty old, but they keep it clean. The room coffee is pretty bad, though. :) For the money, it's a pretty good value - they have an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna. There is a good restaurant right next door for lunch or dinner, and down the road you can get more delicious food and sundries. All in all worth it for us.

Pay attention to the criticisms in the other reviews of this hotel. They are accurate. The worst part of this hotel are the beds. I can't remember the last time I slept in a bed this uncomfortable in a hotel. The furnishings and linens are very low quality. The breakfast bar is a joke. Powdered creamer for the coffee?? Come on, even my dentist does better than that. No orange juice, not even any milk for the cereal. They aren't even trying. On the plus side, it was relatively clean and the hotel is easy to find. This hotel is definitely not worth the price.

We paid $87 for the night including all taxes and I found the hotel to be pretty decent. The only issue I saw was with the bed sheets and the blankets. The blankets looked faded and the beds were way too stiff. For a night's stay, I would recomment this hotel, not if some one plans to stay for a longer period.

Loved our stay! Newberry has very little in the way of hotels/motels and we really appreciate the accommodations made available to us! Comfortable-firm beds, very clean rooms, and a very nice pool/hot tub. It's a family run business, so minimal but very friendly staff. Very small breakfast options, but again, its very well priced for accommodations offered, and there are several small diners in town that offer some delicious alternatives. Can't wait for our next visit!

Check in was smooth, the room was not only clean, but spotless! The staff was friendly and very helpful. There was a hugh back yard to walk our dog, which was great to get some exercise after site seeing in the car all day. Thanks Irene for you helpful and great attitude.

We were looking for a cheaper place to stay than the Comfort Inn in Newberry where we usually stay as we literally only sleep there and spend the rest of the weekend with family at a cottage (without enough beds!). This place was a significant savings. But, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for! Complementary breakfast was cereal, toast, juice and a few cinnamon rolls that were cut in half. No tables to eat breakfast on-had to carry breakfast back to the room. Rooms clean. Mattresses on the firm side. Quiet. Nice pool (Comfort Inn doesn't have one). Staff friendly. Nothing fancy and it served our purpose just fine.

The horror began when we were trying to check in several rooms. Even though they knew we were coming they had one clerk and the computer crashed. Check in took forever. You had to use a room towel at the pool then exchange it for a dry one and walk back to your room wet. The beds were HORRIBLE. I woke up with a headache! The breakfast was very minimal and served in a hallway with no tables to sit down at and my son got nothing because he went down a couple minutes after nine. But the worst part was at checkout. My daughter was chewed out because she hadn't told them that she had a child in the room. She was lectured about fire codes when we were NOT asked at checkin how many were in each room. Then when I complained, the clerk tried to justify the lecture!!!! Then my brother told them that one room's air conditioning didn't work and he was told that it was okay because it wasn't that hot!!!! We all used our air conditioning that night. This hotel charged almost as much as Comfort Inn down the road but they were too booked to take us. For the money we spent I would have preferred to sleep in the car!!! DO NOT STAY IN THIS INN!!! YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!
