“basic accomodations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

We were looking for a cheaper place to stay than the Comfort Inn in Newberry where we usually stay as we literally only sleep there and spend the rest of the weekend with family at a cottage (without enough beds!). This place was a significant savings. But, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for! Complementary breakfast was cereal, toast, juice and a few cinnamon rolls that were cut in half. No tables to eat breakfast on-had to carry breakfast back to the room. Rooms clean. Mattresses on the firm side. Quiet. Nice pool (Comfort Inn doesn't have one). Staff friendly. Nothing fancy and it served our purpose just fine.

The horror began when we were trying to check in several rooms. Even though they knew we were coming they had one clerk and the computer crashed. Check in took forever. You had to use a room towel at the pool then exchange it for a dry one and walk back to your room wet. The beds were HORRIBLE. I woke up with a headache! The breakfast was very minimal and served in a hallway with no tables to sit down at and my son got nothing because he went down a couple minutes after nine. But the worst part was at checkout. My daughter was chewed out because she hadn't told them that she had a child in the room. She was lectured about fire codes when we were NOT asked at checkin how many were in each room. Then when I complained, the clerk tried to justify the lecture!!!! Then my brother told them that one room's air conditioning didn't work and he was told that it was okay because it wasn't that hot!!!! We all used our air conditioning that night. This hotel charged almost as much as Comfort Inn down the road but they were too booked to take us. For the money we spent I would have preferred to sleep in the car!!! DO NOT STAY IN THIS INN!!! YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!

The hotel is very clean, well kept and comfortable. Priced well also. The check in lady apparently was having a bad day, but everyone else we met was friendly.

This is a little gem in the wilderness. Newberry doesn't have a lot to offer in the way of hotels/motels so this is a little gem in the wilderness. It's on the highway but our room was very quiet. Very clean and comfortable. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The complimentary breakfast was great. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we are in the Newberry area.

Americas Best was my last stop on my trip around the UP. Being the tail end of fall color season, there wasn't much going on around town. The Inn is very well maintained and has good security and a well-lit parking lot. The pool and hot tub were a nice treat after a week of hiking. Continental breakfast was good! Good value for $62 (the most expensive stay of my whole trip!).
For Newberry being the "moose capitol of the UP" I never saw a moose ;)

We stopped here for one night on our trip around the UP. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We had a smoking room with a king bed and whirlpool. The whirlpool was a relief after hiking and driving all day. There are not many restaurants nearby but we did drive about 15-20 minutes and ate dinner at Timber Charlie's(?) We would stay here again.

I stayed here one night on July 11,2009. Located in the town of Newberry, it looks like a fairly new motel. It's a two story with elevators. Check in was simple and the motel staff were friendly and helpful, actually calling a restaurant in the area to see if they were still serving food. My room was very clean including the carpet, bath and beds.The shower was powerful. The motel has an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna. Free basic breakfast included with your stay. Plenty of secure parking and well lit. Not many restaurants close by though. The closest being a McDonalds 1 mile away.
I'm glad I chose this place to spend the night and would recommend it to anyone passing thru the area.
