Notified owner and he went to room with me but found he "couldn't smell anything". He stated that the rug was recently shampooed, and in another statement indicated that new carpet was recently installed. (Funny - why would you need to shampoo recently installed carpets???) Upon request for change in room, he reviewed bookings and stated he could not offer...

Clean bathroom, great shower. Clean fridge and microwave. Comfortable double bed, works for us as neither thrash while sleeping. (Although used to king😊). We carry our own pillows. Bedding is worn, but fills the need. Has air conditioner, did not use. Family owned, live right there. Breakfast not included, but at this price point, bring own or enjoy one of...

I loved this place! It's family owned and operated and I'm all about that. Stayed for one night with my husband and son. The rooms are basic but it was clean, comfortable, quiet, and the beds are comfortable. The owners are very nice and cared a lot. I will stay here every time we are in the area!

It's a budget motel without extras, but it's inexpensive, clean, and the owners are friendly and caring. They allow pets and they have a wheel chair accessible room. We could stay elsewhere when we visit our son in college but we choose to stay here.

Room looked and smelled very old. Bed was not comfortable and may have had bed bugs in it. Corners and edges of room were dirty and we found a spider web. I wouldn't dare look behind the furniture. Air conditioning unit looked to be 30 years old and was noisy. Furniture was damaged and outdated. My recommendation to the owners...

I was scheduled to attend a meeting in Ashland, reserved room for the one night. The morning of the scheduled reservation my meeting was cancelled due to a major snow storm of up to 12" of the white stuff. I immediately cancelled my reservation but they still charged us for the night. There are exceptions to some rules! Hard to...

Second time we rented a room there. Nice and clean - reasonable rates. Room had a small love seat so you had an option to lying down in bed. Good hot water. Bed was comfortable. Owners nice. Motel right across from Lake Superior and down the street from a great Mexican Restaurant.

This hotel has a great location. The large green lawn overlooking the lake is a great place to sit down and have your supper. However the rooms certainly need some work.. Our room had a musty smell which was helped by having the window open for a couple of hours but....the beds are not good. The mattresses were very uncomfortable...

We have stayed here before several times. The location and view is great! The rooms are nice. We believe very good value compared to the Super 8 a short distance away which is twice or more the price. We haven't had an issue with our room previously, but this time we did. The room was musty smelling. The other rooms...
