“I don't understand why all those reviewers liked it so much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is a very old and tired out hotel. We checked in Friday evening through Sunday morning for my brother-in-law's wedding. The girl who checked us in messed up our checkin twice and seemed overwhelmed by four couples all coming in together.

Our room was adequate. Carpet was threadbare in places. Top blankets on beds had stains. My father-in-law's room had a toothpick lying out in the open on the carpet. I checked both double beds to ascertain whether we would even be spending the night here. Found no bugs, thank goodness! I slept poorly the first night but my husband slept well both nights. Very quiet, which was a blessing. Unfortunately I didn't think to take pictures, but even the traveler pictures don't look like the room we had, except for the bathroom.

Ah .. the bathroom .. here's the kicker ..
When my husband walked in to use the bathroom, there was a pubic hair chilling out on the toilet seat. So .. when did they last clean it?? There were a lot of random hairs behind the toilet, like no one had swept behind it in forever. EW. While I wasn't expecting expecting luxurious towels, it would have been nice to have washcloths and towels that were not either a dingy gray or accompanied by little yellow stains. Shower was adequate, OK water pressure, but the floor squeaked and I was afraid my 105 lb frame was going to take a trip through the floor boards. Also, don't expect to apply any makeup in the bathroom, there is only one flickering light by the sink.

On the bright side, the WiFi was decent, not overloaded like a lot of hotels, and there were a lot of channels on the cable TV. There is also a McDonald's right next door, we walked there for lunch.

To sum it up, if this place was up to par with the places around it, they would be charging the same prices as the other hotels. You get what you pay for, however, in this case, we got even less.

Room Tip: We were in room 206. Rooms 205 and 204 were also not very good per family members.

This facility was marvelous. I felt welcome immediately upon entrance. The room was exceptional. It was clean and well. It looked more like a Days Inn then an America’s best Value. I met a very colorful character in the lobby at check out. His name was Karl and he might own the Hotel. He was just so nice and very impressive. This was a very good value!

Was so nicely greeted when arriving early. The easy access to the hotel off the expressway. They allowed us to check in several hours early. Breakfast included was a great added bonus. We loved the the care and consideration given by the hotel staff. Room was clean and area was wonderful. Would stay here again for sure and recommend to all my friends Michigan.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade if one is available they will give it!

The ABV was selected for us by our Company due to it's proximity to the office. The hotel was nice, rooms were clean and well tended. The free Wifi was a bonus. The ABV certainly had a nice homely feel and was very quiet at night. The staff were all very pleasant and the staff always welcomed a conversation. Had a great stay

This is a typical Northern Michigan Hotel, lobby and rooms clean, good service, excellent internet speed. The Air Conditioner was a blessing, it was hot out. Easy access to Interstate 31 really nice employees!

I made reservations at this hotel for a group of high school baseball players. Working with Brandy, the group coordinator was wonderful. Beautiful hotel, very clean and well taken care of. Breakfast buffet was very good. We had to check in around midnight, and all I can say is the night crew needs to take lessons from the day crew on how to treat customers. The day crew was delightful to work with. I give straight give ratings across the board. I would not hesitate to stay here on my next trip to whitehall, or to recommend the hotel to everyone, for individuals or groups.

Very clean. Decor recently renovated. Breakfast good usual continental fare. Nice small touches like: shower curtain has clear section at eye level so you can see if your roommate/spouse is entering the bathroom, toiletries higher quality than your average cheap place, showerhead adjustable flow. 3 large mirrors, microwave and small fridge. Internet wifi easy connection and fast.
