The room is clean enough it is an average hotel room with a small refrigerator and a small microwave. The problem is not with the facility it is with the owner. I put some creamer in my coffee and it was all congealed so I asked him where I could dump it out he told me to take it back... More

One positive it was very very clean. The bed was so bad when you sat down the two ends would go up in the air. None of the decor matched so it wasn't inviting. The tile in the bathroom look like a two year old put it in. The same two year old painted as well. It's close to the... More

Stayed one night (thankfully ONLY one). Room was dirty. Bathroom floor was filthy. Killed a couple of nasty looking spiders on the bed. Air conditioning ran, rather loudly, but did not seem to do any cooling. Phone system does not work for room to room calls. Room looks like it should have had a major upgrade 40 years ago. Not...

We chose this hotel on a fall drive to Traverse City. Since the traverse city, petoskey area gets very expensive during peak fall weekends, this seemed like a good option. Kalkaska is few miles between Petoskey & Traverse city and is a good place to stop by. But , not this Econo Lodge. For some reason it just not match... More

We stayed one night here. For the price of this room, the room needed better cleaning. It had been remodeled in the past (since the 70s?) and was due for another one.A pipe in the ceiling made a noise every time the occupants upstairs turned on a faucet. We were "trapped" in our room all night because of the very... More

We stayed for one night (thank goodness it wasn't longer). The room was VERY SMALL, there was a desk chair & a chair, the shower overflowed and the drain cap was loose. They put us on the second floor (had to climb the stairs) so if we needed anything we had to "unpack" our suitcases from the trunk of the... More

We stayed here one night while visiting Torch Lake, our room was very dingy and smokey even though there were signs posted everywhere that there was no smoking with in 20 feet of building. I wasn't going to make a big deal about it until I called the hotel 2 days later when I realized I had left some personal... More

My rating of this hotel is in comparison to other Econo Lodges that I have stayed at (not comparing Econo Lodge to a Hilton or Four Seasons). Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised. While you could tell the hotel itself was older, the rooms had been (partially) renovated. The showers in the bathroom appeared to still be the original, but the... More

Our room was 169.00 for a night. (May have been worth $40-60) The shower was not clean, The floors were gross. Asked for my discount for being a teacher and was told NO before I could even finish asking the question. Other choice hotels give 10%. The only positive is that we missed breakfast and the desk clerk did offer... More
