“Comfortable Stay”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We stayed overnight here after a wedding reception that was in the hotel's ballroom.

It's a little old looking but it's VERY roomy with really comfortable pillows and a large bathroom. Our room had a nice flat screen tv that pulled out to be a little closer. The only thing I would say that wasn't comfortable was the bed. It was a little hard for my liking but I still slept very well.

The room was very clean and the staff was about average and a friendliness scale.

Room Tip: Our room was road side but still had a little balcony overlooking the area that was still pretty.

We stayed one night while driving through the UP. The highlights have to be the view and the extra friendly and helpful staff. The young man at the desk when we arrived was very personable. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice flat screen TV. We ordered pizza from our room, which was very good. A request for an additional towel was met within minutes. Breakfast was adequate with waffle makers, french toast, cereal, muffins, etc. We'd stay again.

Stayed here for one night with my spouse in a king fireplace suite, facing the bay. It was a very clean, nicely updated suite. It looks like they took 2 original motel rooms, and made a 2 room suite from them. One room is the living room/kitchen with flat screen tv, couch, nice comfy chair, 2 end tables and coffee table. The kitchen area with a bar counter with 2 nice stools. There is an under-counter fridge and full size microwave plus sink in the kitchen area. The 2nd room is the large size bedroom, with a king bed, end table, nice wood framed fireplace in the corner (it is a separate unit but looks nice), flat screen tv, and large dresser. The bathroom is nicely updated also with a decent size counter with one sink and a walk in shower.

Pros: Newly updated, clean, nice carpet, comfy bed and sheets, comfy pillows, spacious, nice kitchen and counter area, great view of the bay! New wall a/c units in both rooms. There are 2 closets, one in living room and one in bedroom.

Cons: The only con is that there should be a second end table and lamp in the bedroom. There was only one end table with one lamp! No overhead lighting. So it was kind of dark in there. Also, there needs to be a second lamp in the living area. There is only one lamp next to the couch. There needs to be another lamp next to the really nice chair in there. Maybe a floor lamp next to the chair for reading.

Make sure you ask for one of the newer suites. Not all have fireplaces, and some do not face the water, but I am sure they are all similar and very nice.

We also ate dinner here. I will critique that under the restaurant section. It was very good.

Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here in one of the suites.

Beautiful view from our hotel room! The rooms are set in a quiet neighborhood. The pool area is really nice with enough room for a large group, such as a wedding. The restaurant had good service and good food.

Room Tip: Chose the hotel/golf/dinner option. It is a great value!

Have driven past this place for years ... and once I stayed there, would return for sure. Very clean room with a private , but small, balcony overlooking a bluff and Lake Michigan.
The room was not fancy, but very very clean and comfortable. All the staff were friendly ... the dining room was a pleasant surprise... very upscale and wonderful food, nice linens , wonderful view.
A wedding reception outside the dining room, on the bluff with gazebo and courtyard with fountain, was fun to observe. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: ask for a 2nd story room with balcony and a lake view

Just a stop on the way to Mayo Clinic. An older property but clean and everything worked. Waterfront rooms with terrace available. Nice place to sip wine in the evening looking out at Lake Michigan. Not overpriced. They also have a restaurant where we ate supper. Reasonably priced with good food. Wine, by the glass, was inexpensive also. I have stayed here before and will do so again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor waterfront rooms are nice if you like to look at the water and relax.

Great stay. Very clean, super friendly staff. Couldn't have asked for a better nights stay. Beds were comfortable, and the view of the water from the walk out balcony spectacular. When we come back this way, we will definitely stay here again !!
