    My husband and I have stayed here several times while visiting friends at their camp nearby. It is no frills, but clean and comfortable! Very friendly staff! Great atmosphere, relaxed and laid back! Only criticism, would love a mini microwave.

    Snowmobile trip. Weather unexpectedly warm. We went home a day early. Was no problem with Bob. We just have him 24 HR notice. Have stayed at other places in area....we will stick with Waters Inn. Small but very clean.

    The price is very fair, the room is very cozy with lots of "up north Michigan" feel, and the service is as friendly as it gets. Downtown Gaylord is not far away and the trail is right across the street for the snowmobilers.

    I just saw the review by Frank W for Waters Inn and I was puzzled by his lukewarm review. So I checked his other hotel stays and his high ratings were for the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, another luxury resort in California and a boutique hotel in Houston. These places all cost MUCH more than $70 per night. I got the feeling that Frank was rating based on whether or not it was a five-star resort, not on how happy you are with the accommodation for the price. It looks like we can rate when someone's review is helpful. Is there no way to rate when a review is not helpful?

    We appreciate your kind words, I too thought that he might be confusingly "star" ratings with customer satisfaction "bubbles".
