We came for a youth tournament and the hotel is possibly going through a transition. The rooms were definitely in need of thorough cleaning. There were some stains on the ceiling, the carpets were a moderately dirty and the bathroom was in need of some thorough refreshing.

Came in that night on business. After a long drive it was nice to make it there. The staff was friendly. The hotel is VERY dated and some parts pretty run down. I wasn't feeling the best but I was very hungry. I just couldn't bring myself to eat at the buffet restaurant in the hotel. The rooms are very...

Thank you for your feedback! Our hotel is 100% non smoking, and we take that matter very seriously. Often times during these cold winter months, we find ourselves struggling to keep our smoking guests all the way outside. I assure you that I will look further into this matter and I appreciate you bringing it to my attention.

This hotel has a huge open area around the pool - games include ping pong, bumper pool, pool table, mini golf course. Fun for the kids. We also ate pizza from...

The hallway in which I entered to get to my room, wreaked of heavy cigarette smoke stench, as did the entire hallway my room was in. The room itself smelled like someone sprayed an entire bottle of febreeze to mask some type of odor. They offer only small, square pillows for the bed. The free breakfast buffet was more than...

I recently spent the weekend and was nervous when I read all of the negative reviews. I must say that this place was phenomenal. Our rooms were clean, hotel was clean, staff were very nice. I would say that you have to be careful if you are looking for a quiet night but for a family --- there was a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sanctuary Inn, offers the most amenities of any Alpena, Michigan Hotel. Wireless Internet Access is only one of the free services to our guests. Our 15,000 square foot Indoor Recreation area offers the traveler the chance to relax in our indoor pool,whirlpool and sauna, to golf on our miniature golf course or apply their gaming skills in our video arcade. Our exercise room lets the traveler keep their workout regimens while on the road. The only Alpena, Michigan hotel with a restaurant and lounge on property, the traveler needs only to step down from their room to enjoy C.W.'s Restaurant serving everything from burgers to prime rib, or the Sneakers Lounge. Business travellers searching for an Alpena, Michigan hotel are unlikely to find lodging closer to their destination than the Sanctuary Inn. Ideally located in the city only minutes away from Besser Company, Lafarge Corporation, the Alpena Regional Medical Center, and Omni MetalCraft. We are the nearest to the country's newest(and only freshwater) national marine sanctuary- The Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary highlights Alpena's rich maritime heritage and the greatest concentration of shipwrecks in the Great Lakes. Historic lighthouses dot the lake Huron coast. ... more   less
