They've made some recent updates as other posters have mentioned, but have a ways to go before I would stay here again. We stayed 4 nights. Upon arrival, I had to request they go through the room with a vacuum or long-handled duster to remove cobwebs, bugs on the walls and in the corners, and gnats that filled a corner...

Where to start? This place is bad. The owner actually had the nerve to call police because I decided to clean truck and listen to Tigers game on radio.

Rooms were clean and the night was quiet. The price was reasonable and the location is on the main drag in Tawas City, so it is just about 4 miles from...

We came May 16-19 for the Birding festival.The room was clean and service was outstanding. They were very helpful to meet our needs. We forgot a watch and they sent it out the next day. TV was down but the cable company was sending new digital boxes. I was glad to not have TV. It does have wifi. Looking forward...

We arrived at Captain's Quarters for the Tawas Birding Festival. We had a pleasant stay at the recently-renovated motel. The air condition worked, the beds were clean and comfortable. The lady who owned the motel was very pleasant. She vacuumed our room for us around lunch time. I highly recommend Captain's Quarters, which is the most affordable place to stay...

Arrived late on a Saturday night and got the last room. Great rate!! Our room was recently remodeled with new carpet and bathroom fixtures. Got great help from the manager when we left some important stuff behind. Great customer care there. Chuck K from Dayton
