Everything was perfect!

Balcony was full of spiders, cob webs, bugs. Husband asked if they could at least sweep it. We stayed 3 nights, no one cleaned it. So bad you could not sit out on the balcony. Room was clean though. Have photos of balcony.

You can’t be the view and location. Room was clean and spacious, perfect for our family of young kids. Hotel is dated and pool area wasn’t the best.

Close to the dock and a nice lake view. Room was fairly clean

Beautiful views

The only issue I had was that at check in the staff was not wearing face masks per the law. They had fires going on the beach which were beautiful. It was quiet and we had an uneventful stay.

The rooms are spacious. Excellent view of lake Michigan. Good property to stay with family and easy access to startline ferry.

The lay out of the rooms worked well for us. We enjoyed the pool and beach. I’d bring my own coffee if I went again.

Overall decent property, great location real close to ferry if you have children. Hotel states free breakfast and it was not offered because of COVID? Don’t know why that would affect food, secondly WIFI was free but never worked. The rooms were not the cleanest- dead bugs in our room and there are no washing stations for your feet coming from the beach so sand is everywhere in your room. Hotel does not clean the beach so from fourth weekend trash and fireworks remaining in the hot sun where your kids play. Overall ok- if you don’t mind cleaning your room, or sleeping in a sand filled area along with not having any technology capability.

We liked the water front room and the view. The staff was super friendly and the size of the room was great. The location was awesome, right around the bend from the main strip for shopping and eating. Close to activities too. What we didn’t like so much was the WiFi. It was basically non-existent in our room. It showed I had full signal but it just wouldn’t connect. My wife had to go to the lobby to log into her online classes as it just wouldn’t connect in our room. It was a shame as she was looking forward to watching the water and sitting on the balcony to do her class work in the evenings but that was impossible despite showing a full WiFi signal. At least the pony was cozy and comfy for her to do her homework. The room wasn’t cleaned as well as it could’ve been. There were a lot of dead insects inside the room on the window ledge upon arrival. I cleaned them off and didn’t have an issue with more getting in. When we left I did see a bottle behind the nigh stand. I thought my wife dropped a water bottle, turns out it was pop bottle left by some guests before us. The attention to detail for cleaning wasn’t really there. We would’ve liked to have updated windows in the room as well. The old single pane glass doesn’t stop the excessive heat from the sun as it just bakes right in the room. It makes the room pretty hot in the mornings and is a not so pleasant way to wake up when you wake up sweating. Newer windows, triple pain, would help with this. Staff was amazing

Very nice place to stay. Would definitely stay again

We loved the room. The room was more than we expected. The heart towel was an added touch. The only thing we think should be fixed are the doors throughout the whole hotel. They all seem to stick. It was weird because it was all the doors.

Handicap room was provided, internet does not work.

Mother nature is resilient. Even though we had serviced the balcony, she still works her wonders. We apologize for her actions but can not stop her with the allowable chemicals at hand.
