I travel a lot and I find this hotel extremely clean,comfy, relaxing and the staff are very friendly. One of the best Holiday Inn Express's that I've been to. This is my second time here and once again I'm very satisfied. I especially enjoy the comfortable beds :)

Perfect for a family trip. We recently visited family in the area and could not have had a better time. In spite of the cold, rainy weather the grandkids, ages 11 and 9, had a great time in the indoor pool. The suite was clean, the beds were very comfortable and the breakfast bar was good. The grandkids especially liked...

We stayed here for 2-night "1-tank trip" from the Detroit area. The location was nice & central to the thumb area's towns, beaches, parks, etc as well as near a bunch of chain restaurants, fast food chains, Walmart, & strip malls. We were greeted by 2 nice ladies upon check-in, who recognized my IHG status and quickly got me my...

Upon request for government rate, receptionist declined although I'm current employee with 24/7 response duties. I advised I've never been denied before to which she stated "guess we're not everywhere else". Dining staff was very courteous and friendly though.

Was on a bus trip seeing lighthouses and we stayed here the last night. They were very friendly. They had cookies chips and beverages for us when we arrived. We a slight problem in our room. We reported it and it was fixed when we returned from super that evening. Would recommend this motel if staying in the area.

My family for the last 4 years have been traveling to Port Austin to visit relatives who have a place right on the beach. The place they own on the beach is not big enough to accommodate my family consisting of my wife and two boys ages 3 and 4 so we have stayed at places in Port Austin and...

We guaranteed a room with a credit card a month prior to our arrival. Gary, GM, gave our room away to somebody else and the hotel was booked upon arrival. His attitude was "too bad, find a room someplace else." It was 10:00pm with a tired and hungry young family. We were asked to leave when we said, "You can't...

They were very courteous and nice. The pool is a little small but clean. Our room was clean and comfortable but it could have used some repairs. For instance the shower curtain rod was loose and the curtain falling to the middle and the bathroom would get wet when taking a shower, the toilet seat kept sliding around and some...
