I can only agree with the other poor to terrible reviews. Old, outdated, dirty, barking dog, chain smoking owners. I understand times are tough but invest a few dollars in updating or at least a more thorough cleaning.

Website says that breakfast is included - but it isn't. The room appeared to be clean, but very worn and old and no air conditioning. We found a barely working old fan in the closet. Since you have the windows open, you hear cars and trucks and your neighbors throughout the night. It was not what we had expected and... More

We had a delicious breakfast here today. The French toast was absolutely delicious and my husband's eggs were cooked perfectly. Quick service and cash only! Not a good spot for a huge group since the place itself is small. They also serve breakfast all day and offer a lunch menu!

Well, you get what you pay for & then some. I was quoted one price during the winter months when I made my reservation & then at check-in I had to pay significantly more. Take it or leave it I guess, since it was a prime weekend and I needed a place to stay. Shirly didn't seem to care. It... More

I gave the Foothills Motel a good review last year. I found it quaint, quiet and convenient. It does have its advantages, in that it is indeed quiet, compared to downtown Glen Arbor at the height of the season; the location, about ten minutes from downtown Glen Arbor, is convenient; and... that's about it. My mom and I stayed there,... More

The location and value of this small motel are very good. The motel is on a quiet, winding road just five minutes or so from Glen Arbor. The rates were reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. The Foothills Cafe is right next door to the motel. The room was outdated, but otherwise it was fine. There were two... More

We stayed here before the Solstice Race. It's tiny and the rooms smell of cigarette smoke and poor cleaning efforts. It's very dated as well. It was servicable for what we needed, but I wouldn't stay again. Additionally, there were a few ants around, which was unpleasant. The cafe is small. The food was good but nothing spectacular. Basic breakfast... More

We visited Foothills on a local recommendation for breakfast. It is a cute place in the woods away from town. The menu is simple, but the food was very good...not greasy and tasted fresh. We were shocked when we received the bill: $24 for two rather straightforward breakfast entrees and just water to drink. Thus a rating of "average." If... More

My mom and I stayed here for one night in July. She liked it so much that she came back with my sister for one night the following week. It's simple, quiet, convenient, comfortable and clean, and a big value for this area at the height of the season. If you're looking for a standard "luxury" stay at a national... More

We recently stayed at the Foothills Motel and will not go back. It needs some serious cleaning and updating. The mattresses appear to be from the 1970's and are very uncomfortable; the bedding (bedspreads and pillows) smell old and have that greasy not washed in god knows how long smell. The carpet in the rooms is filthy and the plumbing... More
