Great place to stay, great service, very friendly owners and very clean. Prices are very reasonable, There is the usual tv and internet service, no pool, but comfortable safe place to stay with lovely views.
I haven't felt so relaxed in a long time. If you're looking for a quaint, mom-and-pop place with an Up North feel, this is IT. The rooms bring back childhood memories of staying at my grandparents' place in the woods. Our daughter called it "the cabin." I love the decor. Our room was also clean, fresh-smelling and clearly cared for and maintained. Unlike 8359kathys, we did not have a single bug. However, as someone who lives in an older home in Michigan, I can tell you that we can remove cobwebs and "exterminate" bugs in the morning, and they're back by the next morning. However, I saw neither cobwebs NOR bugs in our room :) . Loved it.
We stopped at this motel since all the reviews looked so good. Upon arrival we were given a room and when entering noticed it to be very run down and there were cobwebs behind the dresser tucked in the corner. Drapes were hanging kind of wonky but didn’t really think much of that except room could just use some sprucing up. My husband and I sat down to eat and noticed ants crawling around the bathroom floor and up onto a desk. I called John one of the owners and he offered to come spray for ants or move us. We elected to move since didn’t want to be in a room where bug spray had just been applied. The room he moved us to was even worse. My husband killed 2 spiders and 4 centipedes in that room within 5 minutes of being in the room. Needless to say we would not be staying. John and his wife (the owners) were very gracious and apologetic and when asked refunded my money. They explained that they just got back from a month trip and didn’t get the place fumigated yet. Regardless of that it does need some love and simple updates. The beds appeared nice and the carpet looked decent. I was disappointed that all the reviews looked so good when I saw the complete opposite! …
We had a wonderful stay at Stargate for a winter getaway to ski northern Michigan. Comfortable and very affordable accommodations with great hospitality during our visit! Thank you and we will look forward to our next visit!
Very happy with our stay. Our room was clean, bed comfortable, lots of hot water for our showers. Check in was seamless and I appreciated the fresh hot coffee in the morning. Owners were great, very helpful and personable. Will absolutely stay there again. And our room was HUGE! And the heat worked great. Nice and warm as the temp was in the low 40's. Good place!!
