It was probably a fun place at one time. It has three buildings, the central one being registration with a big open room, a cramped space where a starchy breakfast was available, and the swimming pool (which looked clean) so if you want to use it, you must walk outside to get to it. The building I was in only...

We stayed one night as we were passing through. We wanted something cheap and this was. The inside was basic and clean enough. However, the hallways were dingy, the doors looked like they were used as shields in a war, and there were about 200 cigarette butts outside the main door since there isn't a garbage can or an ashtray...

Do yourself a big favor and do not stay here. I needed to find a hotel quick and did not check the reviews. Big mistake. I opened the door to my room and could smell smoke (this is a 100% smoke free hotel) and mildew. There was a dirty towel hanging on the back of the bathroom door and a...

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.

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...

The receptionist was very friendly! She even offered me her personal verizon hotspot device incase we had problems with the wifi in our room.

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...
