The Sanctuary Inn, offers the most amenities of any Alpena, Michigan Hotel. Wireless Internet Access is only one of the free services to our guests. Our 15,000 square foot Indoor Recreation area offers the traveler the chance to relax in our indoor pool,whirlpool and sauna, to golf on our miniature golf course or apply their gaming skills in our video arcade. Our exercise room lets the traveler keep their workout regimens while on the road. The only Alpena, Michigan hotel with a restaurant and lounge on property, the traveler needs only to step down from their room to enjoy C.W.'s Restaurant serving everything from burgers to prime rib, or the Sneakers Lounge. Business travellers searching for an Alpena, Michigan hotel are unlikely to find lodging closer to their destination than the Sanctuary Inn. Ideally located in the city only minutes away from Besser Company, Lafarge Corporation, the Alpena Regional Medical Center, and Omni MetalCraft. We are the nearest to the country's newest(and only freshwater) national marine sanctuary- The Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary highlights Alpena's rich maritime heritage and the greatest concentration of shipwrecks in the Great Lakes. Historic lighthouses dot the lake Huron coast.

Pool was being fixed, heat didn't work, phone didn't work, smelled like chemicals throughout the hotel. Went to front desk for help, they said they would send someone over to our room. Half an hour later no one came, we left. This was in the midst of Thanksgiving break.

Rooms and pool area are run down. Floors are peeling and cracked. Pool area and golf/table tennis were trashed everyday and not cleaned up until morning. Noise level was very loud until 2am every night.

My experience has been that there is no charge if you ask early enough and there is no other conflict for the hotel.

Thank you for your question. Our Murphy room is a poolside room which has a Murphy bed ( double bed in the wall), which allows more floor space. At night the bed is easily pulled down, allowing for more floor space during the day. This room is most often used by groups as a hospitality gathering space during the day. When used as such, the King-bed room attached is often rented for sleeping. If you need additional information, please give us a call at 989.356.2151. We will look forward to your October visit!
