Plantation Motel
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Huron
Reviewed July 25, 2011

We are in the midst of a cross-country trip and decided to stay here based on reviews from tripadvisor. We were trying to save a bit on a room for the night, and the reviews made this hotel seem like a great value.
?? Our first room was hotter inside than it was outside, and we had to move to another room. Granted, the hotel did accommodate us to a cooler room.
Then, we noticed that one of the beds only had one sheet - not two - and the one that it did have was a twin-sized flat sheet for a double-sized bed. Someone brought us another sheet and just handed it to us, complaining about the help.
Next, my husband got into the shower and noticed that the soap from the previous room occupant had been left on the soap dish, making us wonder if the shower had been cleaned.
The "private beach" mentioned in the promotionals for the hotel is gone because lake levels are too high. It would have been nice for someone to mention this to us since we were in touch two or three times before our stay.
All in all, we were fine, but perhaps we should've looked on down the road for a different place. I certainly wouldn't recommend the hotel portion to anyone else traveling this way.

We booked this establishment after reading a few reviews.....not sure where these people stayed or what rooms they were in but let's start at the beginning.....

** Checked in, no problem

** Opened door to room 103.......at a minimum of 60 bug stains on the walls and the ceiling....NICE, REAL NICE START

** Home Depot has a paint sale going on.....

** Started killing the bugs that were in there flying around....great environment to get a night's sleep in

** Headed to bed with mattress that in my years of travel was a 2 on a 1-10 scale

** after tossing and turning for 3 hours and having several mosquito bites we decided to head home....at 2 am....nice time

** I spent several years in the hotel business; I politely asked for a 50% adjustment to the bill for sub-par accommodations...... I was told the following "The mattress in Rm 103 are in new condition . very nice condition I think you must be unhappy where ever you go. we did nothing wrong."


Nice comment that management thinks I am unhappy where ever I go....great customer relations... I am glad they know me so well

I CONSIDER THIS CASE CLOSED, NEVER, EVER, EVER TO RETURN AND CERTAINLY NEVER EVER TO RECOMMEND.

Unless you are looking for bug stain decor FLY away from this establishment.

We enjoyed our two night stay recently in a quaint, one bedroom (cabin) at Plantation Inn. Our dog was right at home and enjoyed stepping out the front door for a walk on the grassy area which extends from the road-way entrance back to Lake Erie. Several R.V. motor home sites are located on the property also, and it seems like everyone has a pet that travels with them. Even though the place is nothing fancy, it is clean and seems to be well maintained. The setting is peaceful,friendly, and a great value. We would return at a moments notice.

While on our way to put n bay , we were looking for a place to spend the night. while driving down the road I spoted the Plantation Motel. we turned around and went to check it out. we were pleased at what we saw. the people were very friendly,and the room was very clean. the pool was clean and well taken care of. the bonus of this place was at the end of the lane it was Lake Erie. [ The views were great ]. They also had cabins there too. and they offerd us the use of there grills if we wanted to use them. The next morning we took our trip and on our way home we desided to spend another night a the plantation motel .[ we will be back] great place to relax and enjoy yourself .

Our family stayed 5 nights and really enjoyed all the space and the location. The kids were amazed to be able to walk out on the frozen lake! Owner was friendly and helpful.

Wanted to thank Todd for a great time. The grounds are great and what a view. All the people are friendly and will just stop and chat with you.
I loved the house cozy and wonderful.

We actually saw 3 eagles that roost close by out over the water catching fish on both days we were there. Can't wait to get back again. The fishing was slow but the Plantation made the trip as fun as I remeber
