“Warm, friendly and personal care given to guests”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2009

Three couples in three rooms stayed at the Tradewinds Motel on the start of our two-week vacation in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Carol, the owner, greeted us warmly and accommodated our desires regarding room choices. She was a constant presence whenever we needed anything from extra pillows to shuttle to the casino. Because she was ever vigilant, we were not uneasy about leaving our motorcycles while taking taxi or shuttle excursions into town.

The rooms were spotless and very spacious with large picture windows looking out on to the parking area and lawn, complete with gazebo. Parking was right outside each door (convenient when traveling on motorcycles). Immediately across the highway was an unobstructed view of Lake Huron.

Although the website had listed a pool, we knew before arriving that Carol would not be opening and heating the pool this year. As it turned out, it was a moot point because it rained the entire three days we stayed in St. Ignace. Also of a disappointment, but not reflecting badly on the Tradewinds, was that the restaurant next door was closed. Without this restaurant, every meal was a drive or taxi into St. Ignace.

Upon checking out and leaving for our next stop, Carol hugged us and wished us well. How many motel proprietors do that?
