“White crusty stains on the blankets”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The title alone should scare you away from this place. It is disgusting. There is a very good reason why this place had so many vacant rooms while the Comfort Inn hotel down the street was sold out. The carpet is bunching up in places, the pain is peeling off the walls, the rooms smell musty and the beds are disgusting. It is like they pulled the mattresses out of the dumpster. Not to mention the white crusty stain on the blanket under the bed spread. Furthermore, I was traveling for work and we are not allowed to go over the per diem rate. When I tried to check in the front desk person told me that they do not give discounted rates during the summer. This is the middle over no where and in the middle of the week, I explained the situation and said "are you sure?". She was sure. So, while I stood in the lobby, I went to their website from my phone and pulled up the discounted rate on my phone then showed it to her. She said "Oh, I was confused. I thought you said 2 people instead of just one (I did not)". What that had to do with a discounted rate in the summer, I have no idea. Either way, she was full of it. I should have stayed in another town.

This motel is in the middle of nowhere and is WAY overpriced! The beds are rock-hard. There were ants crawling on us while we were in the room. We went for the advertised breakfast at 8:20 to find there was only cereal there. They are supposed to have wi-fi but it rarely worked and was very slow when it did. We had originally planned to stay for two nights but could barely stay for one. There isn't much to choose from in the way of lodging in Newberry, but this is not a good choice!

Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments and we apologize that you were not happy with your stay. We do have an exterminator that sprays every room once a month as well as the exterior of the property. During the summer months, it can be difficult to control bugs in Northern Michigan and we are very sorry. As far as the breakfast, we do offer a full continental breakfast daily until 9 AM and refill it continously and by request should an item be missing. Again we are sorry you were not pleased and hope you will give us another opportunity in the future.

This hotel is a good deal for the price. It is the only hotel with a pool in the area and the kids really enjoyed it in the evenings. The staff is very nice and helpful. The hotel is clean and they offer a small continental bfast for those interested. Now for the concerns: the beds, as stated in previous posts, are not comfortable. It would be similar to sleeping on the floor. The box springs are broke or just creak really bad and the mattress is old.

If you can get past this issue, it was a nice hotel to stay at and we would stay here again, with the kids.

This hotel is over priced given the facilities and services provided. The rooms were nothing special and the pool / spa were just OK. The continental breakfast was pathetic, we took a look at it and left. The dining choices nearby is limited, so for any variety one would have to go elsewhere. It would be OK if it was 20% less.

We stayed here for five days while in the U P of Michigan, and even though it takes a while to get anywhere in the U P, because it's so dense with wild land, this was a convenient location. The only caveats to keep in mind are: there are very few King rooms and they fill up quickly. This is nice; however, because no families are allowed in the King rooms and they're in the far section of the hotel - nice and quiet. There are no balconies, so if someone smokes, you have to go outside. The place is pretty old, but they keep it clean. The room coffee is pretty bad, though. :) For the money, it's a pretty good value - they have an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna. There is a good restaurant right next door for lunch or dinner, and down the road you can get more delicious food and sundries. All in all worth it for us.

Pay attention to the criticisms in the other reviews of this hotel. They are accurate. The worst part of this hotel are the beds. I can't remember the last time I slept in a bed this uncomfortable in a hotel. The furnishings and linens are very low quality. The breakfast bar is a joke. Powdered creamer for the coffee?? Come on, even my dentist does better than that. No orange juice, not even any milk for the cereal. They aren't even trying. On the plus side, it was relatively clean and the hotel is easy to find. This hotel is definitely not worth the price.

We paid $87 for the night including all taxes and I found the hotel to be pretty decent. The only issue I saw was with the bed sheets and the blankets. The blankets looked faded and the beds were way too stiff. For a night's stay, I would recomment this hotel, not if some one plans to stay for a longer period.
