Our group of friends visited here between Jan. 31 and Feb. 3rd of '08. It was a memorial trip for our dear friend that lost his life while snowmobiling up there the very same weekend of '07. We enjoyed good breakfasts in their restaurant and nice hot showers with good pressure in the rooms. All together there were 10 of us sharing 3 rooms. The price our friend that booked the rooms was quoted was $55 a night, however when it came time to pay it was $72, the boss on the phone did not tell our friend about the higher price with more than 2 people in the room even though he did tell her how many people we had in our group, and how many rooms we wanted. We questioned about the cost and received deliberate disconcern and were told we could go stay somewhere else. The boss lady also said that she was not going to argue with our friend, who was not arguing, simply questioning why the change in cost. This price change was a shock to us all, considering the fact that we traveled from Saginaw, were all on limited budgets while there and all were going through a rough time concerning our friend's death. The attitude this lady had, was like she could care less if we had issues, since its their busy season and could fill our rooms with no problem. I was so frustrated with her unprofessional manner and said I will never stay here again. I have since told everyone I know about this. It's really too bad, because this was one of the best places to stay in Trout Lake.

McGowans has a nice restaurant, rooms are clean. Not fancy but neither is the price. Hot water, good heat, just the basics we wanted. Staff was very friendly. Right on trail.

Stayed at McGowan Motel, in Trout Lake, Michigan in early 3/06 for snowmobiling. It is a small (10 room) family run motel directly on the snowmobile trail. There is a family restuarant on the property with excellent food. There is 2 bars and one grocery store w/in walking distance. The gas statiion is 1/4 mile down the trail. The rooms are all cement block so they are nice and quite. They have two double beds in each of the very clean rooms. We paid around $55 a night. The motel hasn't been updated in many years but it is still in good condition . . . all except for the beds, they are HORRIBLE and snunken in the middle. I would recommend this hotel to snowmobilers. It is centrally located to travel to many different towns on the Michigan trail systems. Just ride really hard so you are good and tired and the beds won't matter.
