Alpena, Michigan
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I've stayed here several times and the heat in the rooms is never enough to warm it, especially at night. No excuse for a facility in northern Michigan! Can't get wifi in room, lobby only

The hotel pictures looked good upon booking. However, our room was in rough condition. The shower head was heavily rusted, the wallpaper was peeling, and there were mold spots on the ceiling. I disregarded reviewers who mentioned the bad buffet, however this was indeed the case during my stay. The biscuits were rock hard and the rest of the food...

I can't remember my exact room number, my stay was last week, perhaps it was 133? It was definitely on the first floor. The strange thing about this room is that the door to it isn't in the hallway, it's inside the airlock/vestibule leading outside. And in cold weather the smokers don't bother to go outside, they just crack the...

The outside of the building, lobby, and pool areas appear pleasant. However, the room was in disrepair. Warped ceiling tiles were over painted white and sloppily done. Vents were caked with dust (inches worth). Hinges are corroded. Tub knbobs were discusting and loose. Tub drain stop was just sitting in the tub, with a nasty black drain exposed. The room...

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
