We stayed here for my nieces wedding and from check right through check out the staff was extremely courteous. The pool area is absolutely fabulous. The hot breakfast both mornings was delicious. For adults who like the bar scene they have the best bartenders and decent prices for drinks. We had a blast!!!!!!

Well...the room was clean and the shower was hot. The room was exceptionally cold as the heating unit was not producing enough hot air to warm the room sufficiently. When I called the front desk to report the problem, I was offered blankets. The TV was older with a "not so sharp" picture. Breakfast was "ok".

This motel is showing its age. While clean, the décor is dated. The water for my 6:00 am shower was lukewarm at best. When I went to leave, the door handle came off in my hand.

Dear Guest, Thanks for your comments. I’m terribly sorry that we failed to meet your expectations in some ways.

It was dirty, loud due to a pool tournament going on, people drink and smoking out side that drifted into my open window.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sanctuary Inn, offers the most amenities of any Alpena, Michigan Hotel. Wireless Internet Access is only one of the free services to our guests. Our 15,000 square foot Indoor Recreation area offers the traveler the chance to relax in our indoor pool,whirlpool and sauna, to golf on our miniature golf course or apply their gaming skills in our video arcade. Our exercise room lets the traveler keep their workout regimens while on the road. The only Alpena, Michigan hotel with a restaurant and lounge on property, the traveler needs only to step down from their room to enjoy C.W.'s Restaurant serving everything from burgers to prime rib, or the Sneakers Lounge. Business travellers searching for an Alpena, Michigan hotel are unlikely to find lodging closer to their destination than the Sanctuary Inn. Ideally located in the city only minutes away from Besser Company, Lafarge Corporation, the Alpena Regional Medical Center, and Omni MetalCraft. We are the nearest to the country's newest(and only freshwater) national marine sanctuary- The Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary highlights Alpena's rich maritime heritage and the greatest concentration of shipwrecks in the Great Lakes. Historic lighthouses dot the lake Huron coast. ... more   less
