The room was big with a king size bed and they gave it to us for the same price as a queen bed. There was even rolls, bagels and fruit for breakfast. They clerk was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this motel to others.

Be sure to have an updated room. Ours had daytime curtains that let in all the light :/ HOWEVER the owners gave us a 50% refund and were very willing to understand my complaint. The place is nice, clean, affordable and comfortable. The owners are kind and willing to go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. Once every... More

This was a nice place to stay. This stay was during a vacation of the upper peninsula. No reservations needed. It was very reasonable in pricing. It was neat, clean, and basic in the room. The continental breakfast was ok. It was simple and basic.

An amazing find for a very affordable price. We stayed in room no 102. The room was recently renovated. The room was large, the mattress was new, the furnitures, TV, refrigerator and all things were new. The bathroom was large and extremely clean. The mirrors were pristine. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. Overall, this is the best motel... More

Stayed here one night on our way to Marquette. We were very happy with the room. The wifi was great and kept connected during our visit. There are plenty of restaurants near by and within walking distance. We felt very safe here and encountered no problems. We just needed a place to sleep so it fit the bill.

We read the reviews of this motel, that it was being remodeled and renovated. Well, the carpet was new as was the mattress. Unfortunately that was it. The room smelled old and funky. The mattress, although new, was so very uncomfortable; extremely hard and we tossed and turned all night. I was very tired by the time we got up... More

I needed a clean place to stay for a quick overnight trip before traveling further north. This was the perfect place. I was greeted warmly at check-in and directed to my room. The room itself was basic, but very clean. The bathroom looked recently updated, and I enjoyed the flatscreen TV I was able to watch. I had a good... More
