I booked a room several weeks out. 5 days before I was to arrive, they cancelled my reservation via email. I was left scrambling for a room during a busy season. I won't be booking here again. Disappointing.

I stayed here last week while duck hunting. I don't mind staying in smaller cheap hotels but this place was unacceptable. First the heat in the room didn't work. I was given an electric space heater to heat the room. Second, the sheets were clean but the blanket looked as though it has been on that bed since 1978. It... More

ONE OF A KIND; lots of fishermen and boats; clean but need some up grades; bathroom very nice; not much room to hang your clothes; bed was comfortable but bedroom lacked appeal... I probably won't be back

We initially planned to camp-out overnight at the Bay City State Park, but decided to look for lodging when the weather forecast was updated to a prediction of storms. We were attending a function in Kawkawlin, MI, so the selection of hotels and motels were limited unless we wanted to drive to Bay City. We picked the Northland Inn. This... More

The reviews are true - this place is a great value! Northland is just off the highway, close to eateries, with plenty of parking. While the style is vintage, you can tell that the furnishings have been upgraded. All at yesteryear's prices!

A good value if looking just for a clean place to sleep with not lots of frills you don't plan on using anyway. No pool but if you want to swim you aren't far from Lake Huron. Rooms and beds are comfortable and close to Bay City State Recreation Area, eat at Linwood Corners to the north and do stop... More

As other people have said, this room blew our socks off for the price ($50 per night). We had a king room. There was free WiFi and the room was huge! It even had an extra double bed (like a family room set up). It is an older hotel, but the rooms are well maintained and very clean. Sometimes budget... More

Having stayed at Red Roofs and other "economy" hotels, I have to say Northland Motel is a real value for the money. IT IS SO CLEAN! The rooms are nicely decorated, large, refrigerator, microwave, table, tub with shower. The motel itself surrounds a plat of land which is very park like with picnic tables and flower gardens. Although it borders... More
