My friends needed somewhere to stay while doing some Charter fishing out of Frankfurt, MI. which is only 8.5 miles away. Getting a hold of this Motel took some time. I had to leave a couple messages. After I did reach them the woman I spoke to was very efficient and nice. I was made aware that there was a...

We stayed at the Lakes-n Trails the weekend of June 25, 2016. Pleasantly surprised that the room was very clean, even though the furnishings were very outdated. It is relatively convenient to food shopping, gas stations and restaurants in the area. Most of the rooms I considered staying at had a two night minimum and they were super overpriced. That...

The rooms were small but very clean and the beds were really comfy. Good location to McDonalds, grocery store, dollar store and a restaurant. Very friendly and helpful staff. Fridge and coffee pot in the room.

As basic as at gets. We were referred to this motel from a motel in Frankfort that had no vacancy. We were on a motorcycle, and the fist thing my wife said when we pulled up was "ask to see the room." When I stepped in the office I asked the lady if she had any vacancies and she said...

We rented the Michigander Room for our group of three adults and two children. The suite worked perfectly for our weekend trip to the Frankfort area. The suite has a large main living area that has a full kitchen (includes stove/oven, large fridge, microwave, sink, pots & pans, silverware, etc), dining room table with six chairs, sectional couch, and three...

We called from a location about half an hour away to see if we could spend the night. Rooms were available. When we arrived 30 minutes after we called we asked to see the room before deciding if we would like it or not. It was not to our liking--$115 for queen--small not so clean. I asked for my credit...

On summer weekends we are almost always completely booked. If we do have a couple rooms left and someone calls from the road we offer them the choice of being guaranteed a room by reserving with a $30 non-refundable deposit, or taking their chances of showing up and us not having anything available. This person was given that choice and...

We have stayed here several times. This is one of the better motels in this area. The room has always been clean and attended to daily. The free Wi-Fi worked great for us and our room is distant from the office. We enjoy the in-room coffee maker, TV, refrigerator and AC. Everyone working at Lakes-N-Trails has always been friendly to...

Spelling??? Yikes!!! We were aware of this situation immediately. We know this room was cleaned properly, and yes toilet was flushed (we have well water and at times water can have a hint of discoloration) because desk manager was present when housekeeping cleaned room. As for hair we contacted our linen service but could not get definitive reason. As soon...

This review was from a stay a year ago? No sheets on a bed? Hard to believe. Yes our maintenance man is a full-time resident. At Lakes-N-Trails we work hard and have a dedicated staff focused on insuring our guests of a clean, comfortable room. With 24 rooms available ranging from large suites as well as standard rooms it is...

This motel is a place where Michigan uses for hathway house for Sexual Predators. They have ankle bracelets on. These guys are supposed to be around kids.

Interesting that this review was written May 2014 for a stay in July 2013. Why the delay? After further research we have discovered the reviewer is actually an employee that was fired in July 2013 for poor performance. At Lakes-N-Trails we work hard to provide a clean, comfortable stay at reasonable rates.
