We stayed here for 5 nights while fishing in nearby lakes, including Istokpoga. Breakfast, parking and wifi was included in our room price. Parking was convenient because it was just in front our room. The parking lot was large enough that our guide was able to drive in with his large bass boat to pick us up.
Breakfast and coffee were lame. Most morning's, breakfast was not ready at 6am, once because the person at the front desk fell asleep in the office. Options were cold bagels (there was a toaster), muffins, cereal, juice and coffee.
The small room and bed was really basic and old - I guess typical for a motel. We had no trouble sleeping because we were exhausted after 12-14-hour fishing days, but it really wasn't comfortable.
We would have rated this place a 2, but increased it to a 3 because of the location. Proximity to Istokpoga was our first priority, and there were not any better options in $100 or less price range during this time of year (Feb-March). The restaurant next door had good, reasonably-priced food options, and there is a WalMart down the street where we picked up snacks, drinks and sunscreen for our time on the water.
If we travelled here for fishing on a budget, we would hesitantly stay here again. But I would be much more likely to pay $150-200/night for an average 3-star inn (Holiday Inn and Residence Inn), knowing these were our only other options. Better yet, fish during a different time of year when the room prices are more reasonable (approx. $100/night for the 3-star Inns).
If we were travelling for any other purpose, like a family non-fishing vacation, we would not stay here.
