A cozy motel blocks away from the downtown area. We had one of the newer remodeled rooms and it was the finest room I had stayed in in ALL of the U.P. Seriously top notch. The bearded gentleman working the desk gave me all kinds of information of the area.

This small motel may be a little dated but it was close to food/gas/shopping and had easy parking. My check-in was pleasant and the room was very clean. My favorite part was the super comfortable bed.

We stayed in one of their newly remodeled rooms. Very nice. Beds were very comfortable. Nice continental breakfast out early. Staff very friendly. Shopping mall just around the corner and restaurants close. I would stay here again.

We were arriving late and the staff was very accommodating and let us do the "official" forms in the morning. The breakfast was very nice and our room was newly remodeled. We got lots of good traveling tips from the owners. We will definitely be back when we visit the UP again.

We stayed on a Sunday evening with our two dogs. The owner was very personable and engaged in conversation with us while he checked us in. The room was spacious. The sink was outside the room where the toilet and bathtub were which was really convenient. The wall air conditioning unit worked wonderfully! There was a microwave and a small...

If you are looking for clean and friendly for an overnight stay, this is the place. We were pleasantly satisfied with our stay.

Thank you for taking the time to rate and review us! Our customer feedback is essential to our renovations. We did install darker blinds but due to reviews we are going to go darker with them.
