The hotel looked nice on website picture & their descriptions sounded good, so we booked one night....but do not believe it! They may have renovated the outside but the inside is horrible. We DID stay in one of the air-conditioned rooms (and that was about all that worked!). We walked in the room & almost walked right out but we thought we could "rough it" for one night. The TV was outdated and when we could not figure out how to work it, we tried calling the front desk but got a recording saying that the "phone was no longer in service!" The wall light switch turned the alarm clock on and off but was not coordinated with any lamp. The pool/hot tube area was filthy! So, we walked outside over the bluff to the lake and that was beautiful but when we came back to shower... we realized that we were given only one set of towels (remember we couldn't call to ask for more) and there were BUGS in the bathroom. The bedsheets were clean & the bed was comfortable but there was a nasty red stain on the blanket (we didn't use that!). The "restaurant & lounge" that was advertised were closed, and the Continental breakfast was a joke! I would recommend that you skip this town altogether: there was one restaurant and one bar but plenty of sportsman-type shops. Go to Munising! There are a variety of (clean) hotels, restaruants, boat cruises, nice swimming beaches, and family activities.
