After driving 15 hours from Michigan on our way to Keystone, we decided to stop in Mitchel. I was nervous because I usually research all my stays based on what others have to say about about their experiences. We have 5 adults in our party because of three kids who are older. This hotel did not add an additional fees because of the number of guests in the room. When arriving the hotel lobby was very quaint and it felt like I was away for a ski weekend at a lodge. There were no offensive smells, and the pool was visable from the lobby, and there was no strong smell of chlorine. We asked to see the room before we would decide, and we were not disappointed. The CLEAN room had plenty of space for 5 people. We had two beds and a pull-out sofa, and still had room for the other furniture which was decorated in a pine outdoors theme, (tree and moose theme). The beds had a quilt top added with a down comforter and light blankets. The bathroom was clean, and the vanity area was outside the room with a larger hotel fridge, microwave and coffee pot with plenty of selections. The pool was on the smaller size, but the older kids did not complain. they enjoyed the jacuzzi after such a long drive!
I know other reviewers mentioned the price and I have to say that as soon as I told other hotels who rated in the top 5, I was looking at a minimum of $150.00+ to start per night. If my children were smaller, the water slides may have been appealing, but I prefer not having a bunch of children running up and down the halls. When we came here we received a reasonable rate for our family. If my husband and I were traveling alone, the usual is $100.00 for the most part. There were coupons given out at rest areas, but we find that these hotels always have those rooms “taken" and provide a different rate.
I would recommend this hotel for families because of the lodge feel, the cleanliness, and the fact that the Kelly Inn will not charge you extra fees just because you bring the family to stay.
I did notice that the larger rooms are in the middle of each hallway, and should only be about $25.00 more. If space is an issue, ask for these rooms. I beleived we stayed in room 208. (See pictures.)
We did noy hear other guest, and had neighbors due to the "Do not disturb sign."
I would stay here again, or even at other ones across the country
