“Clean, basic hotel”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

We stayed for 3 nights and were very satisfied. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool is kid friendly, but also has an 8 ft deep end. Pool towels must be requested at the front desk and are very small. The breakfast was great. It included scrambled eggs, sausage, and breakfast potatoes along with muffins, cereal, etc. each day with some additional hot foods on the weekend. The cook and wait staff were very friendly. We had checked prices online but got a much lower rate when we stopped to inquire in person, arriving at 9:00 on a Wednesday night, so I was glad I didn't pay ahead! Overall, it was a very good hotel for our needs.

The hotel room was showing its age, but it was clean and well maintained. The staffing was professional, however the breakfast was nasty. The waffle was the frozen type you put in the toaster, the potatoes and eggs were cold. The only good thing was the coffee.

This is an ok hotel in Escanaba, MI. The rooms are a outdated and the bathrooms are small. Everything was very clean and the price was right so if you don't mind the old fixtures, its an ok place to stay. The service in the resturant was horrible but the food was delicious.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room.

Good rooms, although we got close view of the air conditioning unit. Nothing else to moan about. Staff are excellent, food is good.

This is a more typical Best Western although it is very clean, has its own restaurant as well as a cute bar downstairs. More that typical free breakfast buffet complete with pancakes, eggs, sausage, fruit. Very good value.

Pacino's restaurant is in the Best Western building. We went there for dinner after checking in. The best Lasagna I ever had. Price and service was excellent. The chef and owner even came out to check on us. The next morning our motel complimentary breakfast was served in the restaurant, and there he was again! Great service and can't wait to go back to Escanaba!

desk staff great. free internet in room. got the last room in the place - former smoking room now non-smoking- we were warned, given key to check it out first, we took it even though it did smell like an old bar with poor ventilation. room did not feel clean - upholstered chair had big stain on it - should have been taken care of. location was good - probably should have gone down the road and looked for another hotel but it was only one night.
