Travelling with pets, easy access to ground floor rooms. Great restaurant 6 am to 10 pm, set us up with dinner trays to eat in our room. Tv, running fridge ready to use, A/C works. Walked the dogs on the snowmobile trail serving Ignace at 7pm; be aware that bears are present as well.

If you wish to stay in a motel that looks the same now as it might have back in 1961 with a pothole filled parking lot, and you want to experience dial up speed internet wifi, then this is the place for you! I would keep on driving another hour to Dryden where you will find modern hotels and numerous... More

Ignace is a small town with very little choice for rooms. This facility is clean and adequate. It has a restaurant attached which has good food. It is also a bus stop for traveling east and west if needed.

This motel is definitely not one I would have picked out had there been more choice. The place is obviously dated and business is probably not booming enough to warrant the investment to refresh it and rejuvenate it but all in all it was a decent place. The staff was very friendly and the room was orderly (and we'll assume... More

Travelling east and all hotels booked in Dryden. Ignace is the next spot and the North Woods is fine. The room is spacious and clean. The restaurant on site is great, home cooked food and opens early. The owners accommodated our last minute call by giving us a main floor room for our old dog who can not walk stairs... More

My husband and I and our 2 westie dogs stayed here on Aug 22nd, on the way home from our vacation. The location is right off of Hwy 17, but the staff gave us a room at the back so it was really quiet. The facility is an older building typical of those used by construction workers, hockey teams, and... More

It appears as though this is the best hotel in the area. It is old and verrun down, very clean though and the beds are reasonable. We were lucky that the rooms on either side of us were not occupied as the walls are paper thin. At 11pm we could hear someone's tv as though it was on in the... More
