“Do not stay here if you have children or are scared of germs!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

The room was large enough with 2 queen beds and a twin, but all 3 beds were lumpy. The room smelled like there had been beer spilled all over the carpet, plus the carpet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a year, nor vacuumed in WEEKS. The mini fridge had someone's moldy leftovers in it & was filthy. I had to walk to the store next to the hotel to get Lysol spray & wipes to sort of sanitize the room before I'd let my grandchildren in there!! I did mention this to the girl at the desk & asked for a refund so we could go somewhere else, but we were refused as the manager was unable to be contacted as the time of the evening. In the morning (We did not have 'extra' funds to just leave & lose the money), I asked for the manager for perhaps some kind of discount but again she was unavailable. I am not OCD about germs, but maybe the manager should be aware of what the rooms look like after they have been "cleaned" and the procedure for complaints??

It was not particularly clean and the staff not service orientated. I arrived for breakfast at 900 am and could find no cereal bowl. I asked for one and was told that breakfast ended at 900 and they had to remove everything. I was shocked and asked again for a bowl and they refused even though the food was still out. Very rude behavior

Looking for a place to sleep as the weather closed in as I was driving the UP in Michigan. The young girl on check in was ever so polite and got me a room no problem. The motel is aging a bit, but this is no five star in a metropolis, so what do you expect. Was just what I needed to get off the road and have a comfortable night's sleep.

Breakfast the next morning was also included which was a bonus.

We were looking for a clean and inexpensive place to stay on our way home from visiting family. I liked the fact that the hotel was not right up against the highway and we stopped in. The staff was very friendly and they gave me a good price for our quick overnight. The room was nice, clean, and very comfortable. My husband liked the hot waffles they had for breakfast. The hotel was right off the main road near gas stations and we had an early breakfast and were well on our way.

The hotel had the basic amenities which was good. I didn't pay extra for a pool and other things that I wasn't going to use anyway. I would say this is a good clean economical hotel and would suggest it to others.

The room had a musty smell although the room was clean. The beds were comfortable and pillows fine. We got a good night sleep as the room was facing residential and away from the highway. Breakfast consisted of waffles, toast, cereal coffee, juice. There wasn't any fruit or yogurt that I see at hotels in this price range. I wanted a shower in the morning but it was broken. I told this to the front desk when I was checking out and he would not give me any sort of reimbursement for this and tried to phone the manager at home who didn't answer the phone. If the shower situation had been resolved I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Pick a room that faces the back off the highway.

What a pleasant surprise. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and nice and it was quiet which was also nice. For a smaller hotel off the beaten path they do have free wi-fi and breakfast. Would definitely stay here again! Pay no attention to Kinkuu's review. If they even had that bad of a problem during their stay our stay was wonderful. Sounds like they were just too damn picky. : o

Room Tip: It's all good!

It is an older motel, but the price is quite reasonable. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The first room I was assigned had been a smoking room in the past (I suspect). When I asked about this, the staff immediately put me in a different room.
