Location was good to get to stadium Nice breakfast

It was an good stay for the price. Breakfast was good. Staff was very friendly and was accommodating when we needed to have a late check out.

We arrived late in the afternoon, and the temperature was to drop into the single digits that night. When we closed the door, the gap between the door and the frame was so large that the sunlight shone through the gap. We had to stuff towels into the gap to prevent a blast of cold air from coming into the room, then run the heater on high all night. We wondered how the insects could stay out of the room in the summer time.

The bed was comfortable. Everything was booked because of the homecoming game so I chose this place for a lack of options, but there was a beautiful lake near by. The bathroom was very dirty, only half a roll of toilet paper, the toilet had not been cleaned in awhile, the Jacuzzi tub was not clean enough to get in either. I didn't realize the Jacuzzi tub had to have the bathroom light on for water to come out, (but I was with a friend so no plan to use it, so it didn't matter much to me, but a little important) that's what the manager said when I checked out. He had on a dirty over vest and came to help me with a mouth full of scrambled eggs. He spit at least 3 times at me eggs from his mouth because I was expressing my concerns and he was in a haste to make excuses. That was enough for me to get wheezy at 8a.m. They said they did not recommend Captain Joe's on front of the place, but we went for dinner and it was great! Lake Michigan fish on the menu. I will avoid this place in the future, for a clean bathroom.

Exactly what I like in a motel. Cleand nice room. Comfortable bed with normal sheets and blanket (not the thin polyester blanket). Nice bathroom and TV. Good continental breakfast, and very fine service. And I love the walk-out to parking8 feet from my door. I would definitely stay again!!

Comfortable and accessible, seems like its a good spot for families though

we had a great stay room was very clean, the breakfast was excellent. would stay there again,

Room is clean, staffs are friendly, good breakfast selections, easy access to highways.

Room is clean, breakfast selections are good. Easy access to high way. I would recommend this hotel to others

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 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.

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.

Nice place, clean, comfortable, great service. Breakfast dining area very small, unable to accomadate more then 5 small groups.

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!!

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.

Good stay,

Im glad it was summer,you could see light under the door, water marks around the door. You could hear the highway all night and the walls and floors are paper thin. We were so uncomfortable!

we had a great experience, the view on he lake was beautiful, the pool was very cold but than that, it was a great place to stay!
