Reviewed July 23, 2014

We stayed here and got a very good price on our room. We had a two bedroom suite which consisted of two bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with two queens. Each room had a tv and we shared the bathroom. They let us check in early and when we went to our room the housekeeping was still getting the room ready. She saw us and was trying to hurry. We told her to take her time because we knew we were early. She did an excellent job of making sure we had enough towels and coffee and asked us if we had enough of everything and did we want extras.It was a nice place to stay however the free breakfast bar left something to be desired. We went to a restaurant to eat the second morning of our stay. Decor was ok - there were a couple of remnants from the 80's (the lamps in our room) but it was very clean and a good price for the rooms too. Our room had chairs outside our door on the balcony and it was nice to sit out there at night and have a glass of wine with our friends.

Not a bad place, the staff was friendly. The rooms could use some updating but that is a minor thing. The pool facilities were great. We were not able to take advantage of the complimentary breakfast due to the business of the hotel, but it is July and tourism is in full swing. The only negative part was the bed, the mattress was as hard as a board.

Although this was just an over-nighter, it left a very good impression. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly, check-in was a snap. Our room was a nice size with two queen beds. It did have a gorgeous, good quality armoir (sp?). I liked that it had very nice marble floor tiles in the bathroom and dressing area, and a pocket door for privacy. nice sized fridge.The beds were clean and comfy, as was the room. It was very close to the Arnold Line which we took to the Island. The breakfast was top notch, and I have never been to a motel with such a large dining area. Attendants kept busy refilling food, and were very good at wiping off tables as each party left. There were so many people coming and going, it was amazing. We paid less for this motel than for others we have stayed at, and the accomodations and amenities were much better. Will definitely return if ever in the area again. Maybe next time we will get a lake front room.

Stayed here 3 nights with a family of 4. Purely used it as a home-base for sleeping/breakfast before heading out for daily activities. The main annoyance is the lack of elevators. We had 2 heavy suitcases I had to haul up to 3rd floor. Without a strong person, this would not be possible. Not sure how a hotel cannot have elevator access to all floors in all buildings. Room is a bit dated and small, but I would suspect average for the area. Breakfast works pretty well and has a bit of a ''summer camp' feel. Good selection and a lot of seating and good service. Quick access to the ferry docks, but I recommend using the Shepler shuttle, but you can walk to Arnold without an issue.

Room Tip: Beware getting a room without elevator access depending on your requirements.

Stayed with the family on the way back from the UP. Room was very nice and the beds were very comfortable! Nice clean and right on the beach. Far enough from downtown that you didnt get the hassle of traffic.

My husband and I came here for an overnight stay the end of June with our two kids. We were very happy to find that our room was clean, and roomy. There were plenty of pillows and extra blankets. The beds were comfortable, and the room had a newer flat screen television.The staff was very friendly. Even before our stay I received a call to clarify a request I made when I booked online and the gentleman who called was very nice, and genuinely seemed to care about our stay. The kids played in the pool and the beach was just a few steps away. We had a great water view as well. The included breakfast had a lot of choices, including making our own waffles. The price was a great value, and we will definitely stay here when we come next time! Thanks for a great stay!
