Great value

Only needing to stay one night and just needing a clean quiet inexpensive place to sleep I was more than pleased with this hotel. Check in was quick and easy with pleasant staff. They informed me of all the amenities and times without asking. Room was very comfortable, bathroom was HUGE and clean, beds very comfortable, and I was extremely impressed with how little noise from other rooms and the outside there was. Will stay here again for sure.

Off season over nighter

Booked for less than eighty dollars. Got a second floor room with hot tub in late Sept (off-season). No bay view. Was a rest stop on a long trip from the U.P. to Detroit. Room was reasonably clean (cob webs were plentiful- did not see any spiders). Hot tub was AWESOME and after a long day of driving- very much needed. Was located in a seperate nook from bathroom and had temperature and jet controls.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Admiral's Table Restaurant- just down the street- has AWESOME clam chowder and prime rib. All seafood is fresh and not frozen. A little upscale on prices, but not too bad.
