We recently spent the night here on our way home from a trip north. Having been completely fed up and disgusted with the accommodations at national chains my wife and I have been going to smaller independently owned "mom and pop" establishments. It is refreshing to stay where the people who own the business are there on site to take...

We were looking for a place to stay last minute near Lake Michigan and gave Pleasant Valley a call. We were very lucky they just had a cancellation and one of their cottages was available. We booked the room not expecting too much but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The cottage was super clean and nicely decorated. It is...

This motel was a little dated (we had a good laugh at the box TV!), but very clean and well cared for. The owner was extremely helpful and provided hiking maps and information to us. They were very welcoming, and had no problem with my 4 month old baby staying with us. The mattress may need replacing soon, but the...

We loved our room at the Pleasant Valley Hotel. The room was super clean, the owner was friendly and accommodating, and the price was right. We slept soundly and were refreshed for our day of climbing the Dunes at Sleeping bear . . . the colors were absolutely stunning.

A trip back in time to the places of childhood vacations. Well run and very clean cabins and rooms plus the enjoyable natural air conditioning of nearby Lake Michigan. Owners are always on site to make any changes needed and to assist with any other needs that may come your way. Small town atmosphere...beacuse it is a small town. Nearby...

We used this place as our base to explore Sleeping Bear Dunes. Stayed in room 5, July 1 and 2, 2015. This is a Mom and Pop property built in the 1960s and it is basic, fresh and clean. Has refrigerator, no microwave, coffee or ice. Quiet. Shower and beds very comfortable. Nice pool we did not use. Owners Tom...

If you're expecting "fancy," then this isn't for you. Pleasant Valley is a homey, comfortable place, with all you need and no pretensions to being more than friendly, welcoming and restful. Since this was just what we were seeking, we were not at all disappointed. How lovely it is to have a little cottage all to ourselves! The host was...

We stayed at room 6. Horrible experience. The room has a haunting old musty smell -The room is poorly lit. Carpet/bedding/pillow - everything has a old dusty smell. The bathroom is a sorry spectacle. The tub has liners coming out. Never again

We are so very sorry that our accommodations did not meet your expectations. Our resort offers motel rooms that are clean and recently renovated. The facility was however built in the 1960s therefore the bathroom fixtures are a bit dated and not perhaps the look and feel one would expect at a newer hotel. We purchased this resort in 2013...

My daughter and I stayed here last Friday night and I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and comfortable the room was. The motel was within walking distance of the race registration which was an extra bonus. The best compliment I could give them is that I will definitely be staying there again for the race next year. Thank you...
