Fine for a night

We only stayed here after a wedding. It was fine for what we needed, but I would probably stay somewhere else next time.

Don't bother with this Motel!

Dead bugs all over the room. Carpet that felt like I needed to wear shoes to bed. Toilet leaked and bathroom door knob falling off. Towels were so thin it took 2 just to dry off. I use better towels to polish my boat. TV remote didn't work well, had to turn the TV off by hand. Bed linen was suspect and didn't fit the bed. Needed to refit the mattress pad twice during the night. And finally the chain lock didn't reach to lock the door. I felt dirty after my stay and do not recommend this place to anyone.

weekend getaway

We simply needed a place to lay our heads as we were out and about all weekend. The location was GREAT being right across the street from the casino. As for the room, mehhh. The pictures definitely are a false advertisement. We had dried salad in our ice bucket... if that makes any sense. My girlfriend was a little weary about even taking a shower, and we weren't expecting a motel vs. a hotel. There is very little privacy for the pool/ hot tub area as it is RIGHT NEXT to the check in.

Horrible

If I could post pictures on here I would. I will never stay at this place again. I'm so sorry that I made my family spend a night here.

OMG

couldn"t check in at check in time.Room wasn't ready for an hour and a half later (had to come back twice). When we did get our key the room was upstairs . Screens broken and falling off the windows. We had two double beds.One bed had a creater in the middle ,almost to the floor. Plaster was falling off the ceilings on the entirer complex. broken bed frames were thrown under the stairways. Bathrooms awful. Please don't go here the board of health should be notified!!!

Wonderful getaway for first time empty nesters

My wife and I had just dropped off our 4th child to college in KY to escape to Petoskey, MI. Beautiful town! Wonderful parks. Great food! White fish!! Hotels pricey especially in Aug but found Econo Lodge in our budget for a 3-day getaway.

Good for Boyne Crazy Dayz

It was one of the cheapest on [...]website for the weekend that we both wanted however, the hotel met our expectations and exceeded my wife's expectations for cleanliness and freshness. There was coffee to make in the room, shampoo, conditioner, and also a goodie basket. Inside the goodie basket there was some tooth paste, sunscreen and lotions. All were completmentary and not necessary, but the fact that the hotel put them out to offer was where this Econo Lodge (South) went beyond our expectations.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Right across the steet was a buffalo wild wings, applebees and other restruants. It was really convenient to walk to dinner and walk home. It saved gas and also we didn't need a designated driver. Also, right across the street is a walmart. This was convenient to purchase any supplies that we happened to forget at home. FINALLY, there was a casino within a short walking distance. The Econo Lodge South gave us $5/person in free chips to gamble with and also FREE transportation to and from the casino, 24 hours a day. We really enjoyed this feature of the Econo Lodge South.

Econon Lodge South Petoskey

Price was GREAT for the area, but the hotel was a little run down. Picture online was NOT what we saw when we got there. Didn't spend much time in the room anyways, but still a little beat up looking. Cont breakfast was over before it even began.

Econo Lodge Petoskey

On our way home from Mackinaw City, we decided we wanted to see more of Northern Michigan. Found Econo Lodge to be the best price in the area and were pleased to find a nice, clean room and pool area. It even has excellent WiFi.
