Great little place for the price. Very pleasant and welcoming staff.

Overall this is acceptable lodging. I got a one-bed room. It was nice but very small. Next time I would get a larger room. A couple nice perks are a campfire area with chairs and a grill on site. I think the grill is gas. Oh and there are chairs outside the room. The property is reasonably priced for the area. No complaints, I would stay again but as said would get a larger room.

Very clean. Check-in was nice and easy. Air conditioning worked like a charm. The microwave, coffee maker and mini-fridge were a nice bonus! Great location in proximity to lakes, Casino's, wine country and golf! The Orbitz description says "free rollaway beds/extra beds". Be warned these are air-mattresses and not great ones. I had to refill mine 3 times in one night (as there were 3 adults in a 2 bedroom flat). It obviously has a slow leak somewhere but of course you don't find that out until the middle of the night. There's no ice-machine either, but during covid I wouldn't trust one anyways.

Had trouble with toilet in middle of the night. No one to call.

Very old, bathroom is very tiny and the water smells and is hard. But room and grounds are clean. Kelsey who lives on sight was warm, friendly and extremely helpful.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this inn. The people from the office are very friendly, helpful with suggestions about the area and super accommodating when our plans changed. The buildings may be old, but everything is clean, works properly and comfortable. The have outdoor areas for grilling or fire pit for enjoying an evening or morning cup of coffee. I would come back, no question!

Small mom and pop motel but cute as heck, has everything you need, right outside of elk rapids and next to a nice mexican restaurant.

Cute rooms. Nice that they have refrigerator and microwave. Shower is the only thing that seemed not newer. Wish they plowed or salted the roads. Our car got stuck/had trouble and it was slippery/snowy to walk. Well water so it’s a bit stinky. TV didn’t work in the morning. Nice employee. We would come back.
