Halfway through the summer we obtained a boat slip at a local Marina on the inland waterway. We live two hours away and trying to find rentals in the middle of the summer is beyond impossible. We stopped at the Waterway Inn and met the owners Chris and Jess. As luck would have it, they were just finishing up a remodel on one of their mobile homes and between the mobile home and the hotel rooms available we were able to obtain some long term rental dates for the remainder of the summer!! Our stay there was always met with friendly "Hellos" and an above and beyond attitude to make our time there extremely enjoyable. They are very particular on neatness and accommodating the needs of their guests in any way they can. We will be back for several more stays in the summer of 2022!!

From the first phone call throughout our stay, we felt welcomed and had great experience. The price was good and the room was both nicer and larger than I expected. Beds were comfortable and shower had good water pressure. Helpful recommendation for an enjoyable, local restaurant. Thankful to have found this place, the owners take pride in their work.

Husband and I stayed here on our way to the upper peninsula as a half way stop. The room had two queen beds. It was nicely updated and decorated. Had a fireplace which we found enjoyable and gave us a cozy feeling. It was very clean. We had just left another hotel in the area that needed lots of help and was a relief to see this room so clean and inviting. There was a coffee maker and fridge also in the room. The beds were clean and nice pillows. Beds were just a little softer then I like, but comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. Very nice and pleasant owners.
