Whether you are here on business or you are taking a vacation to Lake Huron our hotels accommodations are sure to please. The Sanctuary Inn and Conference Centers service and amenities just cant be beat and neither can our location. We are near everything there is to see and do in the area. Oh hotels in Alpena Michigan we are the closest to the countrys only freshwater marine sanctuary Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary which highlights our citys rich maritime heritage and provides great insight into the shipwrecks of the Great Lakes. Guests can also easily visit the historic lighthouses that dot the coast of Lake Huron since our hotels just minutes away. It is highly unlikely that you will find any other hotels in Alpena Michigan closer to your corporate destination that ours we are only a few minutes from local businessess like Besser Company Lafarge Corporation Alpena Regional Medical Center and Omni Metalcraft. We also feature free highspeed wireless Internet access throughout the facility. No matter what brings you to our hotel you are sure to love the topnotch amenities we offer relax in the indoor pool whirlpool and sauna play miniature golf or show off your gaming skills in the arcade when you visit our 1500 sqft Indoor Recreation Center. We also have a fitness room and we invite you to stop by our fullservice CWs Restaurant and Lounge.

A peasant stay

We stayed at The Sanctuary Inn for the weekend while attending a family wedding. We were pleased with the facilities and amenities, in particular the indoor pool with a variety of family activities on the pool deck (ping pong, putt putt, billiards, foosball, etc.). The staff was extremely helpful and responsive to our needs. A standout point is that the in-room HDTVs actually get a large selection of HD channels, including kids' channels. Even high-end luxury hotels rarely have much if any HD programming on their in-room TVs. Also unlike some luxury brands, it's nice that in-room coffee is still provided. The complimentary soaps and such were from Bath & Body Works, which was also a huge plus. As far as constructive feedback, our room had two double beds, which is really all that would fit given space limitations, but two queens is much more comfortable for most adults. It's also probably time for modernization; the room was overall clean, but it's showing signs of wear and dating. There is definitely a need for improved lighting in both the main room and the bathroom. The fluorescent bulbs in the bathroom were too dim for my wife and daughters to apply their makeup and do their hair, even with the heat lamp turned on. In addition, we had an interior room overlooking the indoor pool, so there was little ambient light coming in through the door wall, making the room dark even with all the lights turned on; brighter in-room lighting would help considerably. We would happily return to the Sanctuary if the opportunity presented itself, but next time we would probably seek an exterior room.

Expensive in comparison to many other hotels we have stayed in over the past few months.

Expensive for what we wanted. Probably best for young families but not a good value for "travelling" and one night stays.

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect

The Pool Tournament that was being run was Perfect, the Hotel Room and Location was perfect. The food was wonderful from the resturant. Only issue we had was in the Bar-no Brandy.....but a lot of bars don't carry it, so i understand.

Average Amenities

For what it's worth this is the nicest hotel Apnea has to offer. With that being said it is way over priced for what it is. The bed is comfortable but that is where it ends. The building is super old and run down. The lobby is nice and looks as though it has been updated in the last few years. The bathroom in the room was as clean as it is going to get due to age. I feel as though with the price per night they should perform some renovations to make it feel more inviting.

Fantastic Pool Area

The pool area in this hotel was fantastic. Pool was warm and there were pool tables, mini golf, and pinball games for the kids to play with. Would definitely stay here again.

Trouble free stay.

Check in and out was very speedy; under 60 seconds in each case. Staff were friendly and competent. The room and the hotel in general were clean and up to date. Wireless access was quick and easy. The restaurant was accommodating for a late dinner and the coffee was fresh even at that hour. A good quality hotel, well run, with all the conventional amenities for the business or pleasure traveler.
