Motel is very clean and the service is very friendly. Price is reasonable. Rooms are quiet and comfortable Beds are comfortable and the bathroom facilities are adequate. Very good place to spend the night during our Michigan tour. We stay at this motel every year.

The Sierra Model was reminiscent of the 60s. The room was adequate and exceptionally clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable. The owner/proprietors were very friendly and accommodating. I don't know if our room was typical, but my biggest complaint was the size of the bathroom, it was tiny. Available floor space was no bigger than the bath mat....

This is an older motel, but it has been well maintained and updated. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The amenities were nice - wifi, flat screen TV, cable, fridge, microwave. Our room was very clean, which is #1 with me. The room was average size and the queen bed was comfortable. I don't know if all rooms are...

We enjoyed our weekend at the Sierra. Our room was incredibly clean, inexpensive and had basic amenities like free wifi and a large flat screen tv. The owner/proprietor is a very nice lady. She was helpful and went out of her way to honor our special requests. Our room was No Smoking (a big plus!) and had a microwave and...

I was actually quite happy to stay here. I was traveling cross country by motorcycle and exhausted... just needed a place to crash. Room was clean and looked like it had been updated in the last century. Unfortunately, when I received my credit card bill I had been overcharged. I paid little attention to the receipt at check-in and didn't...

I am sorry to have had to stay here for the two weeks that we did... but we didnt have a choice. Our home burned down, we lost EVERYTHING (including our two amazing pups), and we needed a place to stay from September 18th-30th. We tried calling a ton of places, but on such short notice, the only one that...

We only stayed one night. It was clean and had all we needed. The room had a small microwave, refrigerator, and coffee pot. The bathroom was small but sufficient. Everythign worked.

We booked the Sierra Motel off the great reviews it had on Trip advisor and it didn't let us down. We stayed for 2 nights while exploring the local area. A basic, but extremely neat and tidy motel, with house keeping: the bed was made and fresh towels swapped while we were out. It felt like a small home from...

Nice but small for 2 couples... bathroom had a broken lock. Breakfast - coffee, juices, muffins... good. A/C, nice parking spaces, refrigerator (should have requested to have it turned on prior to our arrival), microwave... nice for one-night travelers.
