This was the worst experience ever spent at a hotel. Please don't stay here ever! The dirtiest hotel ever that needs shut down for major renovation. The room was so dirty we didn't know if we could even spend the night. The sheets and towels were so stained we could use some of them. Hair was all over the sheets and used contacts found inside the bed. The floor was so dirty that we had to wear shoes until we jumped into bed. They were laying carpet in the hall when we checked in we couldn't even get into our room and the door was wide open. Security issue if you ask me. We went to bed and it sounded like the window was open and I checked and the window was open. Once again a serious security issue with a ground floor room. The pool area was so dirty and so dark you couldn't hardly even see. Floor tiles were missing and it was in disrepair. The room only had 3 sets of towels in it and we shared them the night we got there. I went and ask for more so we could shower in the morning and I got questioned why I needed more. There were dirty marks all over the doors in our room and the shower was so dirty that we couldn't even hardly shower. The toilet didn't work and you had to keep flushing it to even get it to go down. Spider webs all around the ceiling and between the lights. Half the light switches didn't work at all. I normally never complain or write a poor review. But I feel people should know how poor this is and really consider a different hotel.

A good place to stay for the night when traveling across the country.

The staff members were friendly, helpful and courteous. Great location off several major highways. A nice perk was the 10 coupon off Denny's which is right next door. Beautiful pool. Room was clean with nice television, microwave and fridge. Not a 5 star resort, but nice value for a getaway.

Good hotel for the value. Staff was very friendly.

Pleasant, affordable and convenient for my several yearly visits to Chicago from mid-Michigan.

There is nothing special about this hotel except for good and committed staff. Otherwise, this is a reasonable stopping place for a tight-budgeted business traveler.

Odd layout, but overall an average experience. Room was fine, breakfast was fine. Hotel needs to be updated.

Light above the bed almost fell on us while sleeping

popular place, overbooked but very accommodating staff....I gave it a 4 for the amenities because the spa and pool were large, indoors and very clean. They keep running out of coffee at breakfast which is the worst thing to do to travelers, and I should have changed it to a 3.

really liked the hotel. I also liked the p0ol and whirlpool as well...the price was very reasonable...i would definitely come again

We stayed at the Days Inn in Portage for two nights. The beds were very comfortable and it was perfect for a quick weekend stay. The only negative was that the lights all seemed to be on a timer and would go out while you were in the shower. We had to wave our hands outside of the shower to get them to come back on.

I booked a king room for one night. It had a mini fridge and a microwave in the room which was nice, it didn't list it in the amenities which was surprising. The pool and hot tub were very nice and kept warm. No towels in the pool area though. The bed was kinda too firm for me, but overall I thought it was very good for the price I paid.

Our room was moist when we checked in. We brought it up to the front desk hours later because we checked in and then went to visit family. The Front Desk associate was not accommodating at all. She sent the maintenance person to our room but continued to "argue" that the room is just cold. After all 3 maintenance people were in our room they discovered a leak that was certainly making the room moist. They changed our room but also made sure to tell us that they were sold out and they would not be able to rent the room we moved from.

Up to date room colors. Friendly and courteous staff.

Everything was great. I made the reservation 10 minutes prior to getting there & still had no complications (which I've encountered at several other, pricier places)

This hotel was a great for the price!. The location was perfect for us...close to the beach and highway. The pool was descent size. The hot tub was just that ...a hot tub with hot water, ((not a whirl pool or a jetted tub)). The staff was very friendly. I do feel I should mention that it is a 2 story hotel and there is no elevator. That didnt matter to us but it might for others. Overall, good hotel for a good price for us! Plus if you get the late night cravings, Denny"s is next door and you get %15 off with your room key!! And it is about 30 seconds from a place called NICKY"S GYROS that has the biggest , yummiest and cheapest gyros I"ve ever had! Its a hole in the wall but Im glad we tried it!

Clean and comfortable rooms. There is food and convience stores close by. Situated in a wooded area that is beautiful in the fall.

Hotel was located just right for our use of Dunes. Room was standard and free breakfast was ordinary. Staff was friendly and helpful. An overall good value.

i had quite a pleasant hotel experience. they were a few disappointments i had with them. 1. pool hours didnt fit my schedule at all. opens at 9am and closed at 10pm. would of been nice if pool was open for adult swim for like an hour or something. 2. continental breakfast was not impressive at all. 3. and i know this was not the hotels fault at all, if you do manage to go swimming you may wish to have someone watch your pool towels. i had all of the ones i got taken befor i could use them. i really appreciated the friendlyness of all the staff members i interacted with except the pool personal. they were quite rude with me when i tried to explain to them my pool towels kept getting taken. i truthfully do not believe they spoke a lick of english. other then that i did enjoy my stay quite alot. next tim e i come out that way i plan on budgetting for breakfast for each day im their. thank you for a good experience. if your planning on spending a night their then this would be your best bet for a very good hotel stay and enjoyable breakfasts. i personally like to have diofferent breakfasts each day.

A clean comfortable room in an older hotel that is starting to lack for maintenance. A quiet location and easy access made this a fair value for the money. Breakfast was somewhat skimpy and the lady who works the breakfast is frumpy (frazzled looking and grumpy). The tile on the pool edges needed to cleaned but the pool was nice and the hot tub was excellent.
