I stayed at the Forest Lake Motel for the reception of an exhibition I was having in Grand Rapids. I found my room to be clean, quiet and comfortable, and I enjoyed easy access to the scenic Lake across the road. However, following my visit, I realized that several items of value had gone missing. When they reportedly could not be found in the room, I suspected that someone had taken them during my stay. Two weeks later, the items materialized when a subsequent guest spotted them in a drawer of the dresser -- where I had inadvertently left them (!). I am very grateful to this guest for recovering my goods. I am even more grateful to know that the motel owner and staff had behaved honorably all along. Had I been thorough in the first place, or had they double-checked the dresser per se, there would not have been a problem. Based on my personal experience, I can indeed recommend the Forest Lake Motel to fellow travelers. You can expect quality accommodations, honest treatment and a rare proximity to the beauty of nature and the amenities of the city.
