My boyfriend and I stopped in St. Ignace to look for a hotel just for the night. We were driving back to Chicago from a camping trip in northern Ontario. We just wanted a clean place to rest and spend the night. We had our dog with us, so that limited our places to stay. My boyfriend went into reception and paid for a room. We drove over to the room (this is a motel), walked inside, and the first thing I saw was some black substance, like tar, all over the bedspread. The place was dark, dingy, and smelled damp, musty and moldy. The lamps were dusty and hadn't been cleaned in years! The carpet was stained and looked like it had been there for 40 years. I pulled back the sheets of the bed, and a long dark hair was stuck to the pillowcase.
We turned around, walked out and went to request our money back. The owner refused to give us a refund!!!!! He said he needed "a 24 hour cancellation notice". Huh?? We had just walked in off of the street to get a room. This made absolutely no sense! We could not believe this! There was not much we could do, so we just left. The guy was a pure jerk!
Do not stay at this motel! I would rather sleep on the ground in the open air, being bit by mosquitos than stay at this place. Yuck, yuck, yuck!
