Lodging here is limited and some are very pricey. Clean, modern hotel in a convenient location. Room had refrigerator and microwave. Complementary breakfast was OK- waffles, cereal, toast, fruit, etc. Much better price than a shabby hotel we stayed in in Oscoda.

"The single King was excellent for my wife and I. If you don't have kids there is plenty of room to stretch out and be comfy."
"No elevator, you have to carry luggage upstairs if you're on 2nd floor"
"If you have a lot of luggage, choose the first floor because there is no elevator."
"Our room was very sunny, you really couldn't see the water but it was very quiet on the second floor."
"Rooms were clean"
