The Elk Rapids Suite was very large, but not what I’d call a “suite”. Almost 4’ between the 2 queen beds! Enough floor space for 2 roll-aways + walking space. Mini-fridge cooled VERY well, small microwave with wetbar/sink is a nice touch. Room was on the 1st floor with a walk-out patio. Gorgeous view of the bay! Take note: ROOM 108 is immediately outside the shipwreck playground which obscures the view. Ideal for families, not a romantic get-a-way. Almost every room is bayside. Quieter rooms are ODD numbered.
Our room had cool wedge-shaped cushions on the beds which made reclining incredibly comfortable. Thoughtful touches such as individual cream/sugar for coffee maker, not a prepackaged supply. Upgraded TV & coffee maker. Surprise TV in the bathroom! Staff was very pleasant on check-in. One staffer called a guest to tell them their cable TV listing was ready. Now, that’s good service!
Complaints: noisy fan in the HVAC unit; need an electrical outlet bedside; a bit noisy. We could very clearly hear guests talking and shouting as they walked by outside even with the patio door shut, can’t imagine the noise on a busy summer night. For quiet and privacy, request a higher level room. Otherwise, clean, spacious, linens were in excellent condition, good in-room lighting. Off the lobby is an intimate room with a B&B feel. Board games, comfy couches, fireplace, etc. We were delighted with our stay and will definitely recommend this property.
