Got in late in the evening and trip advisor brought us here. Nothing special, bathrooms could have been cleaner, but in general it served the purpose of what we wanted to do. Nice flat screen TV. We didnt use the pool unfortunately but it looks really nice.

While traveling through the area I took advantage of their walk in special. Very friendly and excellent rates. Met Carol the owner and decided to spend two nights instead of one. Take advantage of their indoor pool, clean rooms and friendly service.

We have had an incredible two night stay here while visiting northern Michigan. The owner, Carol, is wonderful! Channelle was fabulous too as well as the others here. Personal attention led us to feel like we were a welcome addition to the family! We'll visit again!

Booked this through Booking.com and was a bit worried. All my concerns were soon forgotten once we arrived. The owner was AWESOME! Extremely friendly, helpful and doing all she can as she recently took charge of the property. It is an older motel, but rooms extremely clean; microwave and refrigerator a plus; and we loved the location. About 15 minute... More
