I watched this motel go by as my parents took me to Presque Isle in the 1950s and due to a resent change in plans was able to book their last room this weekend, Sept 9,10 2016. The room was large, with lots of drawer space. The fridge & microwave worked great. The TV left a lot to be desired... More

Our room #227 had a broken window & actually about 5 inches of the window was missing, toilet never quit running, exhaust fan in filthy shower sounded like a jet plane taking off, extension cord running across floor to a power strip that a window AC unit...

The idea started out nice, a birthday /vacation trip. We drove in though and looked around. Looked like it had been closed for years! Talked to the manager and went to see our room. It was nice, at one time but not now. We were so grossed out we left and never even stayed. And we only got half of... More

I just want to say that most of these complaints seem over exaggerated. We stayed for 2 nights and the room was clean. It is outdated, but for the price was fine. It wasn't anything fancy, but I felt right at home. The staff was nice, and they were a child friendly place. It was very quiet and I slept... More

We have stayed at this motel years ago and thought it would be okay. It was only for one night and everything else was booked. We checked in around 2 p.m. and just dropped our bags off. We had some doubts but decided it would probably be okay for one night. Spent the whole day at Presque Isle and returned... More

Unfortunately we are in this room for the night. Seriously killed 7 spiders and had baby spiders on me. I thankfully brought Raid with me, and Lysol of course. This 'kitchenette' is a mess. The blue curtains have large brown areas on them. The room itself is dusty and full of cobwebs. It's gross. I stayed here 2 years ago... More
