“Great Stay - Clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Just stayed for the weekend. For an older motel it's nice and clean. Front office staff were very helpful when we had snowmobile trail questions. Liked the coupons we got to eat next door. Food was excellent every day we were there. Pool is nice and hot tub great. Would return and recommend friends to stay here.

While in Ishpeming on business, I stayed at the Best Western Country Inn. Nice hotel. Clean room that didn't have a funky smell and the front desk was very helpful. Check in was smooth. The hotel was quiet and close to where we had our meeting. Even though they do not have a continental breakfast in the hotel, they use the restaurant that is right beside the hotel and give you a coupon good for a choice of 3 different breakfast options. They are all good to get your morning going.

We checked in late afternoon, with little wait. The hotel doesn't offer free breakfast, but it is next door to a restaurant, and guests are provided with a $3.00 coupon per-person for a discount on breakfast, if you eat between 6-9:30 a.m.
The free wi-fi is non-existent. It takes minutes (literally) for a web page to come up.
The second floor room was spotless, but there is no elevator so we had to carry luggage up a flight of stairs. Amenities provided included coffee maker, iron and board, lots of decent size towels, conditioning shampoo, bar soap.
I especially liked the "clean" remote - a new type TV remote which does away with most of the filth of standard remote controls.
There was no microwave, mini-fridge or extra blankets, which you might need in the far north. I couldn't figure out how to operate the heat, but it didn't get that cold overnight.
Rooms with two beds include double beds - NOT queens, so you might be crowded sleeping two in a bed. Three pillows are provided per bed, but I couldn't find one that was comfortable.
There is no insulation in the bathroom wall. If someone flushes the toilet while you're asleep, you're jolted awake to what sounds like thunder. The shower sounds like Niagara Falls next to the bed. I didn't sleep very well, but we got this room via Hotwire so definitely didn't overpay.
Accommodations were fine for the price, but I'd have been unhappy if I paid full price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back, so you;'re less likely to be awakened by highway noise.

Thanks for the review and I'm sorry that the stay wasn't up to par for you.

I did want to clarify a couple things you mentioned though.

1. Our hotel does indeed offer a free limited breakfast as stated on the coupon you referenced. In loo of the free breakfast our guests have the option to get $3 off if they so choose. Our free breakfast exceeds Best Western requirements and the upgrade option is something we thought we could offer to our guests. It has been a very popular option.

We also offer a variety of rooms. The room you booked indeed did not have a microwave, refrigerator, etc but we do have those options available if guests would like them.

Thanks again for the review I just felt I should clarify those two items.

We were traveling through and needed a place to stay. Because I have stay in this hotel many times before on business travel we stopped in and got a room. The service at the desk was very good and the person was pleasant. THe room was clean and orderly. The price of the room is on the high end but when compared to the other hotels in the area the price was in line with them. The breakfast coupons for the restaurant next door helped in lowering the cost. We will stay here again in the future. Bets the Holiday Inn in Marquette by a long ways.

The check in/out process was easy. The desk staff answered questions and were helpful. The property itself was clean. The room was spotless. The pool area was clean. We received free coupons for breakfast next door. The only issue we had was lack of refrigerators in the rooms. For travelers that would be helpful.Other than that we were pleased with our 2 night stay here.

Friendly staff, Nice room. We liked having a sink outside of the bathroom. Clean, well kept property. I thought it a little pricier than it should have been, but over all, a nice place to stay.
