We were on a trip to the U.P. to drop off a family member for a summer job. We were really just looking for an inexpensive place to stay for the night. Our trip was hampered bysevere thunderstorms that had pounded us since leaving the Detroit metro area all the way north. The severe storms had obviously passed but had... More

The hotel is VERY run down. It looked deserted as we came down the street. There was no outside lighting. The clerk indicated they were not allowed to turn on the lights until it was dark (it was dusk when we checked in). The lights were still not on when we returned from dinner at close to 10:00. Screens were... More

The receptionist was very friendly! She even offered me her personal verizon hotspot device incase we had problems with the wifi in our room. The room we stayed in obviously hadn't been used in a very long time. There was debris on the floor by the ac unit, and the clock was still set an hour behind! The toilet had... More

We were traveling to the Upper Peninsula and were looking to stop for the night due to bad weather. This location wasn't too far from the expressway and was one of the less expensive places around for just a place to sleep for the night. The room was clean but the handle in the bathroom sink was cracked and the... More

A more appropriate name would be the Econo Dump. * A whole through the wall next to the heater that you could literally see through to the outside * Three of the four lights in the room did not work * The towels were the equivalent of 60 grit sandpaper * There was a gift awaiting me in the toilet...

We read the reviews on this hotel and was quite skeptically on what it would be like. Since it was a busy weekend and all other hotels were booked, we decided to try it out. What a surprise! Our room was huge, clean and in a great area, close to trails, gas and food. Their breakfast in the morning was... More

I do not recommend this place to anyone. Room was too hot or no heat at all. No mattress pad on bed, not a glass or cup in the room, dirty bathroom, holes in the walls, chairs in disrepair, noisy neighbors, I could go on and on. You get what you pay for.....awful!
