We arrived just a few minutes before the early check in (3 PM) on a Saturday. There were 5 or 6 people in line and they were being turned away because their rooms weren't ready. There was only one person in the cubby hole "front desk" and she seemed overwhelmed. They had our room ready so we were able to check in but we felt bad for the others standing in the lobby.
The room was quaint but it had an older apartment size gas stove in it with a working pilot light. The bathroom was small but functional and did have a tub/shower combination. The bed was king size and comfortable.
We changed clothes and went to a wedding on Lake Michigan unaware of the hotel's biggest issue: PARKING. When we returned from the reception we found that their lot was full and were told by the only person on duty that they had limited parking and we'd have to drive around the block until we found parking on the street. He said we should have been told by the person that checked us in that we could have reserved parking in the lot for $15. Luckily we found a spot 1/2 block away and after we calmed down got a pretty good night's sleep.
