Facility was actually quite clean And they had rooms with three queen beds Which were the main good thing about it. The bad—-The shower surround was peeling off the wall, no cups available with the coffee pot even disposable cups, one sink was clogged, breakfast was extremely limited no protein available no eggs no hard-boiled eggs. They were completely out of cereal and did not have any available. No peanut butter for either toast or the waffles. Really the only thing available was either yogurt or waffles.Hotel had a funny smell but not sure if that’s related to the cleaning agents used for the rooms. Walking outside our hotel room we would get frequent strong smells of cigarette smoke. Lightbulbs missing from the light fixtures some light fixtures did not even work. Would not stay there ever again unless I was extremely desperate for a place to stay

Room was so so Staff was helpful

Friendly front desk person and check in and check out went smoothly. Breakfast could be vastly improved

It is a nice place if all you need are the basics.

Check in service was ok. Got to room and dropped everything off before heading out to explore. Came back noticed the humidity in the room; bedding and everything just kinda felt damp. Bathroom had black mold on 3 of the ceiling tiles. Called down to reception they said they would have someone take care of it. Still there the next evening so I had to ask about it again. Bathroom door is hard to shut and open. Shower doesn’t keep temperature. Bedding has black spot stains. The place just needs updated and Thorough cleaning. Was told at checkin there was no breakfast due to Covid-19. They aren’t cleaning the rooms during your stay because of Covid so you have to put your towels outside your room before noon. Then go to front desk to get towels in the evening hopefully they have enough because I was given some but had to go back the next morning for everyone else to have a shower.

I like the price & the location, it was just outside of town but still close enough to get to everything & not a lot of traffic. Pool wasn't working & breakfast was different because of covid-19. Yogurt, granola bars and coffee. Will probably be much better place to stay after covid 19. I would try again in the future.

It was basic and adequate. Hot water was a long wait. It was great that being in the "dog" room there wasn't carpeting but hardwood floors.

I liked the location. Everything else was horrible. Our room was not clean. Sheets were not changed. Dirty towels and wash clothes were still in the shower. Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else and save yourself the headache.

It was not clean and very over priced. Small roon ans spiders.

The room was not vacuumed well (crumbs, wrappers, dirt along the walls and under bed), shams has mysterious stain, there was no air flow in air conditioner until I pulled it out and cleaned the inch thick dust, the pillow case smelled like someone's head, the sink was clogged, the tile in the bathroom was falling in, beds were terrible, and it smelled musty. When they cleaned, they only made one bed and didn't leave new towels or toilet paper.

The staff were nice and the rooms were pretty nice but the shower curtains were dirty on the inside and it was really noisy with cars and motorcycles right outside the doors. I wish breakfast went later as well.

The only reason I feel ok leaving two stars is that they have been responsive to my communication. The whole facility is run down. The pool is in terribly shape. Standing water all over the concrete. Dirty towels in puddles. Broken toys laying all over. Sand and dirt in the bottom of the pool. The mattresses are old. When you pull the covers back, but still have the fitted sheet on, you can see the springs. The pillows are thin. The towels are dingy. The shower shell is pulling away from the wall. You can see a gap between the old tile and shell they put up. The furniture is very worn down. The whole facility is FILTHY. In our room, I could immediately smell a musty smell when we walked in. The floors were so dirty, our feet turned brown after a couple laps around the room. I wiped down the drawers before putting our clothes in. The wipes were very brown and there were dead bugs in them. The shower curtain is discolored and stinky from mildew. The facility uses a text service to communicate before and during your stay. It’s a nice option. I advised them via text that the room was not appropriately cleaned. They did offer to clean it that night, but my son was headed to bed. I said I’d expect it to be cleaned thoroughly the next morning. But it wasn’t. The same filth on the floor. I could tell the toilet wasn’t scrubbed. I am so disappointed. I would caution you to spend a bit more and stay elsewhere.

Old and need of a refresh. The room smelled musty.

Front desk clerk was not very helpful when asked about ferries to the Mackinaw island, but room was spacious/clean, and breakfast was good with nice variety, both carbs and proteins.

This is a "you get what you pay for" experience. We weren't looking for anything fancy, and we did not get anything fancy. While we can accept and handle an older hotel, the room was not clean upon entry. There was something sticky and light brown on one of the tables (and a dark hair stuck in the stickiness), there were fingerprints on the bathroom door (looked like from someone's foundation), and the bathtub was so disgusting my children refused to take even a shower. The towels need to be replace, as they are threadbare and some were stained all over. On a positive note, the breakfast was nice and the staff were accommodating.

We were in room at night only and for breakfast. That went well.

Location is good, staff friendly. Room smells and is in need of an overhaul. Thought I stepped back in time to the early '80s.

The temperature out was terrible and the humidity even worse the time of your stay. Yes, due to Corona Virus we are not to go into customers rooms during their stay, for their safety and our staff. Sorry for the inconvenience, this is a truly unusual year. Hopefully things will ease up soon.
