First the good... This hotel has very friendly staff, was extremely clean, has free parking and a nice view of the bay from certain rooms. The free breakfast/lunch/dinner "cafeteria" was a nice addition. We only used it for breakfast, but I can see how it would be a real money saver for a family. I really like the fresh "make your own" waffles.
The hotel is close to the casino and a short drive to the beach or downtown Petoskey.
Upon check-in, we asked for the advertised "free upgrade" to a King room - however none were available in the right category. However, for only $10 additional per night they upgraded us to a "premium king". When I asked what made it premium, the response was "newer room, better linens, desk & chair, bigger TV, bay view." Fine - we took it and indeed it was a decent room with a view of the bay. Worth the money.
The bad - the walls are thin and you can hear every door slam both in the hotel and in the adjacent parking lot. Also, in our room near the stairs, we could hear each and every footstep on the stairs as they reverberated throughout the building. Weird - I've never experienced anything quite like it -- and very annoying. Since there' s no elevator to the second floor (only a two story hotel) everyone took the stairs and made the noise.
Overall, this hotel is a good value in a great vacation town and fine if you're on a budget.
