Snowmobile trip. Weather unexpectedly warm. We went home a day early. Was no problem with Bob. We just have him 24 HR notice. Have stayed at other places in area....we will stick with Waters Inn. Small but very clean.

We stayed there from Wed threw Fri. Though we were allowed to check in early, the first room we were given toilet was clogged. Without hesitation we were offered a different room. That night around 900pm the plumber came and was sawing on the pipes, not what we wanted to hear when we were trying to go to bed. Which,...

The price is very fair, the room is very cozy with lots of "up north Michigan" feel, and the service is as friendly as it gets. Downtown Gaylord is not far away and the trail is right across the street for the snowmobilers.

We stayed here at Waters Inn our second night in Gaylord. We just came back from skiing at Treetops and checked in. I decided to relax on the bed for a little bit before dinner to unwind and got startled when someone used another room key to open our door. We usually do the chain as well but because it...

Thanks for staying with us and for taking time to give us your feedback. We're sorry about your experience with another guest walking into your room. We verified that the key that couple had would not open the door to your room, so it must have been unlocked. We pride ourselves in providing a clean comfortable room at a reasonable...

Good location and clean rooms! There is a bar and restaurant right across the street. Access to the trailhead was behind that. Very good spot between Grayling and Gaylord! Will be back for sure! Also close to gas station

Way over priced. Hotel rate for motel stay. Bed was really hard, couldn't not sleep well! Windows only have blinds, need room darkening blinds being they leave outside lights on all night. Small rooms. Water pressure is terriable!

The room was clean, cozy, warm and very welcoming. Work out great for our snowmobile trip. Only downside is the thin walls where we could here the room next door and the small shower. Everything else was great!

Who were extremely satisfied to find such value in an area where we could snowmobile our hotel. I plan to use this lodging option again for both summer and winter activities in this area. The rooms are very small and quaint accident Lee has a place to crash after a long day.

Had a blast over New Year's weekend. Great place to stay. They have ample parking for trailers and we were able to park our snowmobiles right outside our room. Nice mini refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave.

We really enjoyed our stay at Waters Inn. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and we had no problems or issues whatsoever. HIGHLY recommended! We also travel to this area in the winter and will definitely be looking to stay here again.

Sara - Thanks for the GREAT review, we're glad you found your room "very clean and comfortable", because that's what we strive for everyday. We look forward to your winter visit, but PLEASE, reserve you room well in advance, because we get very busy once the snow flies.
