Staying here was not a great experience. There are no maintained grounds whatsoever, the pool is closed due to health and safety violations, the AC was broken (had to change rooms), very basic breakfast. The room itself was acceptable with ok beds, a fridge and microwave, but no coffeemaker.

We had two rooms reserved for two couples and we stopped here on our way to Mackinaw Island. Something was going on because many of the hotels in Gaylord were already booked. The rooms were spacious and clean. The owner/clerk was very friendly and helpful of places to eat. The breakfast left a lot to be desired but I'm not... More

Rooms were dirty. looked like no one vacuumed in over a week. Pool area was closed. Violation notice from the City was posted on the Pool door. Hallway smelled terrible. avoid this place at all cost. I will never stay at another Americas Best.

The entry was philthy and looked nothing like the professional pictures. Simon explained that no pool,closed due to health reasons. I looked down and their was a paper stating that the password for wifi was squashbutt. REALLY.... More

I called and made a reservation. When I got there, they couldn't find my reservation. They had a couple rooms left (during a very busy weekend) so I took one of those, but I was charged $40.00 more than I was quoted during my reservation. This place needs a lot of work. The hallway window was opened and the screen... More

First if all, let me say there have been SOME improvements. The front lobby is nice, which includes a breakfast nook area, nice TV and couches and new desk. But it pretty much stops there. The pool is NOT OPEN and hasn't been for quite a while, if we understand this directly. There is a tag from the county from... More

We booked a room with a suite and jetted tub. while sitting in the tub we started seeing black stuff floating in the tub. We got out and took a shower. Everything else was fine with the room for the price.

The room was comfy with an excellent TV package & a nice recliner which provided great relaxation after a long drive. The thermal heating unit worked well. The hotel is undergoing rennos so the entrance area was cold. Although I prefer fresh fruit for breakfast, they only had packaged pastries & cold cereals laid out in the entrance area. Thanks...

This place should be shutdown. The pool and hottub have been shut down by the health department, "due to lack of up keep". We checked in in the morning and then jumped on the trail and came back late that night and they had never cleaned the room at all, There was not a "continental breakfast or coffee.." Very dirty...
