When we went to check in the first thing we noticed was how dirty their little lobby was. The floor looked liked it had never been vacuumed. There was a old coffee maker with a dirty pot and an old 2 slice toaster sitting on a dirty counter. We asked to see our room and was just nasty with large... More

There was not a fridge or microwave if that is something you need. It does state breakfast is included but its small muffins, coffee and toast. So if your... More

We were able to get a room at no-notice on Car Show day 2016. The location is good just across from the St Ignace Harbor with a nice view. Reasonable summer prices, and nice office staff. We were able to watch the Saturday night fireworks in the harbor from our room. The room was small but worth the price on... More

we had the king room with whirlpool in the room. very large room with refrigerator. People were visiting outside on balconies but our room was very quiet. Windows opened to woodsy outside. Peaceful. Clean comfortable room. There is an indoor pool which we didn't use and breakfast is included until 9 am

Located in downtown. Everything is with in walking distance. Owners are friendly and accommodating. Rooms are dated but clean. View of the bay from the second floor is great. Viewed the fireworks from the balcony on sat night. Would stay again.

We stayed over the 4th of July and had an enjoyable stay. The room was clean and they came in each day to straighten our beds and replace towels. The management was nice. We sat out on the patio and visited with the new owners for a while. They have many updates in-store for the place. I wish them the... More

We stayed for three days. After the first night, the maid came in, striped... More

This was our second time staying here. If I was planning on staying more in my room, I may have chose a different motel but since we are sightseeing, it is perfect. The location is great. You can walk everywhere. It is very laid back, both times people were sitting outside the rooms talking. Never loud enough to keep me... More
