Room hadn’t been cleaned, facility is filthy. Staff rude, no social distancing.

More delivery options since no room or in hotel service.

The hotel was CLOSED! We were directed to go to the Hotel next door. Arriving at the desk with our luggage after a 5 hour drive, we were instructed to go to another hotel. Again unloading our luggage only to be told to go to a 4th location that was set up for "overflow". We were also instructed that the free breakfast would be at a different hotel. THIS IS FALSE ADVERTISING!! Depending on the response to this situation, I will be contacting my credit card company to dispute the charges as well as contacting The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulation, The Better Business Bureau, and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce.

No clock in room,no one at desk for check out, side entrance lock did not work. Location could use some minor work.

The property was run down, things were in disrepair and smelly.

Good location , near downtown. Great view from third floor breakfast room, although the breakfast room could of been a cleaner.

Room heavily smelled with chlorine. Clogged sink. Cannot open windows. Would expect this from a $39.99 room

The staff were nice and it was close to everything. the downfall was the overbearing smell of chlorine when you walked into the waterpark and the breakfast could of been better especially the coffee. Overall experience was nice.

Its a tired property. It would be better if they updated the bathrooms, proper & new linens. Front desk was cheerful. Breakfast wasnt great unless you like heavy foods; biscuits and gravy, waffles, scrambled eggs, or cerial, powdered donot holes, and canned fruit.

We were terribly disappointed with the breakfast, There was no fresh fruit such as bananas and apples. Also lady in charge did not refill hot foods as quickly as she should have. The waste basket was overflowing and should have been emptied. Cereal and milk were spilled and she did not bother to clean that up.

WORST HOTEL AND SERVICE EVER. CRY AND CRINGE WORTHY. I arrived late, stopping on a road trip. Jumped into bed - They put a sheet over half the mattress that wasn’t fitted, covering under the pillows and midsection. When I woke up and pulled the blanket down my lower body was on a filthy mattress pad. I have photos. It was MIND BLOWING. I almost hurled and might have bed bugs or fungus or who knows what. I went into the bathroom to shower in a panic and the toilet and towels were soiled with who knows what. I went to the front desk and the women laughed at me and told me the manager was busy. When he finally came out he also literally laughed in my face and said “SURE IM BUSY” as though he knew and they do this often (the half sheets at least) and just didn’t care. He left the building so that I could not be helped. An apology and a sheet would have done it, but this was truly the worst experience at ANY establishment I’ve ever had. Orbitz refunded me and I will be claiming fraud and calling the Better Business Bureau. What ever you do PICK ANY OTHER HOTEL. MOTEL WILL DO.

You get what you pay for. Internet didn’t work at the time. Small older tv in room, older room, but beds weee decent. No extras here, just simple average to below average at best hotel room.

Filthy dirty. Terrible condition and care for the doors, furniture, and facility. The room had clearly not been vacuumed, the sinks had not been cleaned (hair, coffee, water stains on faucet), and a used dried up washcloth was hanging on the shower rod. Smelled like stale smoke.

Spider webs, not sure if room was clean, needs an all around refurbish. Even the breakfast area is rough. Won't come back.

Why would you ever make me a reservation with the hotel that is not open?

Made reservation through orbitz. If hotel knew they were closed for the season they should have let orbitz know. Both are guilty and we don't like to play games.

This hotel was nothing special - but, it served a purpose. The facility was 'tired and worn'.

Moved us to another Hotel across the street, stating, that they are overbooked.
