Needs Improvement

Older place with the feeling it needs to be upgraded. Only 1 ice machine by the office, so if your room is at the other end, its a long walk. I stayed 2 nights, the "hot breakfast" was the same each morning.

Hotel was adequate

Hotel was adequate and clean. Light bulb burned out over vanity. Bed was comfortable. Carpet was dated and walls were painted an unappealing orange. Staff was friendly. Probably won't stay there again.

Good location for the U-M game

This was a 3-star hotel and our stay was comfortable. It was easy to get to and from the game in Ann Arbor. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. Also, liked the continental breakfast that was included.

Convenient and Comfortable Getaway

We found the hotel convenient for our traveling. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was enjoyable. Room was kept clean and well-stocked (linens, soap, shampoo, etc.). Close to the beautiful lake with several eating establishments nearby! Easy to get on the highway and go on our daily excursions! We had stayed at Whitmore Lake six years ago, and we remembered our pleasant experience. Everything was as good or better than we expected!!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Gallup Park has a fun playground for young children (pre-school to age 10). The Huron River is there and you can rent canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, etc. Very worthwhile and relaxing way to be in nature!!

Nice location, poor experience

I normally would never go out of my way to say something bad about someone, b[...] heres the straight scoop.....THE GOOD:Nice location, right alongside US23. There is a decent resturant right across the parking lot. Hotel staff was friendly, continental breakfast generous and nice variety.THE BAD:Entered room and found electronic doorlock battery holder hanging from wires (inside room). Went to front desk, we returned and I helped put a screw back in to repair it. Laughed it off. We notice a big wet stain on bedspread- not too gross but looks like a can of pop was sitting on it an hour earlier. Wierd but we let it go. Next, my wife brings me a white towel that looks like it has wiped up some cola. Yeah- I'm talking brown stains. Nasty. I calm her down (I was the one who decided on this place and try to save face). Next, we cant get the TV remote volume buttons to work, others worked intermittently. We kept getting out of bed and using the buttons on the TV but that sucked, so my wife takes it and towel down to the front desk and came back with 1 clean towel and 1 remote, which worked nice. I then noticed some broken furniture parts (totally missing wood from headboard LOL) and other kinda grungy things.OK, I'm a guy and I rough it with the best of them....so its not like I demanded a different room or a refund, etc. It wasnt "that bad" but it sure wasnt what I'm used to getting for $80 per night.

Teh staff was absolutely wonderful. They went out of their way to accomodate me and make my stay enjoyable. Even the owner was on-site and very responsive to every request or suggestion I made.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

There are two very good dining options available near this hotel. Neither is directly associated with the hotel, but one is an easy walk and the other is essentially on the same property. The Whitmore Lake Tavern offers more of a 'local' feel and excellent menu choices. Captain Joe's is just across the parking lot from teh hotel and offers excellent food and service. Neither is overly expensive, and both provide ample portions for the money.
