We stayed overnight here in this simple but clean Inn. The room was spotless and freshly painted. Plenty of room in both the room and restroom. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but it was good. Breakfast was not healthy, donuts or muffins were offered.

Our family stayed there for our annual canoe trip we reserved 5 rooms. We checked in early before any other families had arrived and my son's room had a very bad smell (old stale smoke and B.O.). My room was fine so I went with him to check it out and there definitely was an issue with smell. He complained...

We stayed here on a Sunday night because the relatives house we were visiting was full. Our room (205) was very clean and spacious. My wife complained that the sheets made her itchy. The heater/AC unit didn't work right. The entire unit shut off once it decided the room was cool enough and the only way to get it to...

Very friendly, very clean and exactly what we needed after a long couple of driving. Was also quiet and peaceful. We went to a motel first but terrible customer service then found this hotel, this place deserves 5 stars. We will be back again and thank you!

For the size of this place, the ice machine is way too small. I know this because i got in trouble for filling my ice bucket twice. It was very distasteful to be scolded for needing a second bucket of ice. They are the Ice Police . They have the place for sale i saw a for sale sign. I...

This is my go to place in Mio, Michigan. It is my home town and I stay there several times a year. It breaks my heart when I can't get a room there. The other choices in town are rather dismal. Not the fanciest place in the world but clean and the staff are great. I always feel like I...

We had a family emergency and had to travel to Mio. Room was clean and pretty much what you would expect. Chair, table, small microwave and refrigerator but we did not use. TV was small (19"), which we are not used to so that was a little drawback but we weren't there for very long anyway. Had a small problem...

This is a very basic hotel in the Mio, Michigan area. I will start with the property's good points. The biggest plus to this place is that it is CLEAN. The rooms are simple and exactly what you would expect in a normal hotel room. There is a small fridge and microwave. We reserved a room with a king size...

This is a non-descript hotel just off the main highway, characterized by friendly, casual management and an indoor pool and hot tub. The room was equipped with a refrigerator and a microwave which is ideal for families just completing a hiking trip. The hotel is not lavish in any way but it doesn't advertise itself in any other way but...
