This place is absolutely disgusting!!! I have never seen or stayed at such a filthy and run down motel. I am truly amazed that this place is legally able to operate. I could not even begin to cover the issues! But I will try! No door lock, broken toilet, broken counter, broken shower, ripped carpet, holes in walls, filthy linens.... More

The only thing nice was the nice young lady on duty. The rooms were nasty to say the least. It's a shame. no excuses for dirty rooms! The price was great but no frills here. No coffee in rooms and office doesn't open till 8am, 9am on weekends. No blow dryers, not even a box of Kleenex. We wish we... More

When my granny of 107 years young was still alive she had a saying that she lived by "poverty is not an excuse for filth." The reason i say this is because my husband and I on a long trip to TC decided to make a stop and find a place to rest for the night. We were incited to... More

We had a bad storm with falling trees, power outages etc and after the 3rd day with no power, I went looking for a motel. I tried a few before coming here and they made a bad situation as good as can be. I stayed here for 6 days and they went out of their way to make sure I... More

The place is a older motel. Needs to have Alot of updating to do. They do offer snowmobile and quad rentals.I would stay again in a pinch. My 2 son's didn't mind staying there. The bed was kinda springy I prefer a fi mattress.oh and the tv is like 15 inch.

I was very tired when I saw this motel, I drove through town but didn’t see another place to stay so the Mancelona was it. The outside looked well kept, the insides are not. My first room had a broken tv and no wifi connection. The floor was uneven and lumpy. The frig was cold and the microwave worked well... More

The place is the cheapest, and it shows. Thin beds, not-great... everything else. If you're going for just a place to sleep, it should be fine. Seems like it's geared toward people who don't care where they sleep, that only want a place to crash after a day of playing, such as snowmobilers. $70ish a night vs. $200ish in Traverse... More

Nice people in the office. Not a new motel, but it was OK for the price. Thin mattresses and the door handle broke. No big deal though. The air worked and it was better than camping. WiFi is on the weak side but at least they had cable.

I booked a room based on pictures posted online and need of location. When I got there, the desk person had me check the room because standard rooms were in old part of building. It was very dark in the room even with the lights on. I told him it was too dark in the room and I wanted to... More

Not a great place. On our 2013 trip, we found the rooms to be ok. This year was not nearly as good. The person at the front desk was rude and short with me on the phone and the rooms were pretty dumpy. This was a convenient location for our purposes but we will be making arrangements so we don't...
