Just needed a quick overnight for a race. Poor outside lighting leads to a somewhat unsafe feeling. Room was a good price and clean.

I would not recommend this hotel

This hotel looks fine from the outside, but once you go in that all changes. The lower floor hallways are dirty, sandy, unswept. They remained unswept while we were there (one night). There is not wifi in any of the rooms, just in the lobby. The pool area is dirty, dingy, not well kept. The breakfast had no fruit, no yogurt and no pastries or muffins. The description of this hotel is very misleading. The rooms themselves were marginally clean. My kids did not want to take their shoes off. We were happy to leave in the morning and will never come back.

you get what you pay for

This property gives you exactly what you should expect for the price you are paying, plus a little more. The rooms are okay, the cleanliness is okay, the staff is friendly and you get breakfast. For $55 a night I'm not going to complain, but beware of the neighborhood. If you need cheap and convenient It's here.

Don't walk, drive west a 1/2 block. McDonald's, Taco Bell and Jim's Steakout (subs, hoagies, grinders). The front desk has a menu for Chinese delivery & Domino's pizza deliveres.

Okay for sleeping somewhere

Nice room. Pool was just the right temp. I would have rated with more stars however, the pool table, the hot tub, the elevator, the atm, and most of the vending machines were out of order. If anything did work it had a sign that said "Use at your own risk". Oh, wifi is only available by the front desk and the lounge was closed.

Gross

When you walk in it is filthy, went to use the elevator and directed you to other floors. My husband was stuck in it for over 10 minutes. When you get up to the floor it smelled like mildew. When we got closer to the room it smelled like a dead skunk. The heat didn't work right. There was only sheets on the bed. I have bites on my back (probably bed bug).There was feces marks left behind in the bathroom. Spider webs in our room. So gross and filthy! I do not know how they do business. Most horrific experience EVER with a hotel!

won't stay there again!

Room was dirty. Hot tub was down. Pool table was pushed in a corner out of service. Most arcade games were out of service. No ice machine on our floor. Bed had a piece of steel hanging off the bottom, almost cut through my sock when I got off the bed. No exercise room. It was full of junk like a broken foosball table and just junk. Very unpleasant stay. Never again.

ok for a 1 night stay

Check in was ok, but the hallway to get to the rooms smelled very musty, and the dark brown paint did nothing to help the first impression, Luckily the rooms did not smell and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was ok for basics but the shower/tub area was moldy and dirty. Did not take a shower there. Continental breakfast was ok, Would not stay there again.

Busy weekend for Frankenmuth car show

This was a great location to get to the Frankenmuth car show and was reasonably priced compared to those places in town. We had a mixup with our room when we tried to check in early, but the staff upgraded our room to a king to make up for it. The pool and spa were down, but it did look like it would have been nice. We didn't try the breakfast because we were up to late. There was not enough rags and hand towels and the tissue box was empty. The couch sat right in front of the air conditioner so it was warm in our room even though the air was on high. We fixed this by moving the furniture around. The room could have used a deep cleaning, I wiped everything down with some cleaning cloths I had with me. Overall I would probably stay here again because it was a reasonable price.
