“Deceivingly Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We stayed at this hotel one night (7/26). When we arrived the outside of the hotel was a bit rough and I was worried about what the room might look like. So we were happy when we got into our room and it was very nice. We had a second story room that had a cathedral ceiling and 2 queen beds. Everything seemed very clean. There was also a refrigerator and safe in the room. The rooms are entered via the outside rather than from an inside hall. We enjoyed the indoor pool and the basic breakfast. It is in a good location (close to downtown, casino, etc.). The hotel was adequate for our needs and we would stay there again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The room was very clean and comfortable, and the location of the hotel is good (close to downtown). However, the pool area was not pleasant - the water in the pool was cloudy, the sauna smelled strongly of body odor, and the hot tub looked dirty. :( I was really looking forward to relaxing in the pool area, so this was a disappointment. Also: do not pay more for the room with the "spa-jet bathtub." The tub is just a standard (i.e., small) tub, and the jets were sooooooo loud and "clanky-sounding" that I didn't want to use them before bed for fear of disturbing my neighbors. The continental breakfast was also disappointing: very "white-carb" heavy (no whole-wheat bread or bagels, no "healthy" cereals), although at least they had boiled eggs and apples.

I paid almost $150 for one night and frankly I expected better - although I suppose you can't expect a lot for that price on a weekend night in the summer in Petoskey.

Stayed here July 7-10 the rooms were very well kept staff was very attentive ,the walkway needs some attention but am of the understanding that this is to be redone. .Nice pool area typical continental breakfast of the basic needs just wish they had bananas glad there was a grocery store across the street. It is very good location not far from anything. For the price and convenience this was a very pleasant surprise.

This hotel is not well kept; it needs paint, cleaned sidewalk and general repairs. Our room was clean but very outdated. The best thing about our room was the Jacuzzi; it was huge and we enjoyed it.

Breakfast is included and is average as well; nothing special. The staff was adequate.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is a fairly nice hotel in a great location near the center of town and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping areas. The outside of the hotel was unimpressive, but the rooms were updated, clean and pleasant. Linens were bright and crisp and the pillows were a good quality. There was a small fridge and a microwave in the room. The indoor pool was a good size and the hot tub was a nice treat, but since all the rooms exited to the great outdoors, we had to wear our coats to get to it. Breakfast was the usual extended continental fare but the seating area was very small unless you wanted to go outside onto the deck. Got a AAA discount online which made it a little cheaper than some of the bigger chains nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

Great hotel with a great location. Very clean room with a nice refrig and microwave. The pool was very nice...9 feet deep...the hottub and sauna were very relaxing. The breakfast nook was very good with waffles, donuts, bagels, pastries, cereal, oatmeal, eggs, yogurt and fresh fruit. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Check in took seconds. They also had a deck with a big grill and we grilled on Memorial Day...grocery store was right across the street.
