I will start by saying that the bathroom was clean and sheets clean. We stayed here during Sept. They were obviously having a "family" reunion and they were always in the front lobby, morning, noon, nite, along w/ their select type of foods. If you had wanted to have breakfast in the am it would have been impossible as they...

I stayed here on a Friday night in September. I booked the room using Priceline an hour or so before arriving. They did have my reservation, which is the one good thing I can say. The man at the desk was unfriendly, did not make any eye contact with me, and spoke quickly and without care as to whether I...

I can sum up this hotel in one word.....GROSS! Do yourself a big favor, stay somewhere else! I had to stay here for labor day weekend. My husband and I wanted to walk the mackinaw city bridge and some rooms were running 500.00 a night. So I opted to book a room here. Let's just say, I won't be back!!...

My mom and her friend had reservations and when they arrived their room was not ready. They said the place was unkempt and the people there made them feel uneasy. They decided to chance it, left for a bit and when they came back and the room still was not ready. They decided to leave without ever setting foot in...

The most disgusting, filthy, and run down motel I have ever seen. We reserved 2 rooms and couldn't stay in either because of the bugs that moved in before we got there. We are pretty sure the ticks were throughout the motel since we saw some in the bathroom downstairs and our rooms were upstairs. We ended up sleeping in...

Filthy. Paid $70 but felt like I was staying at a $30 roach motel. Stained carpet was ripped out in the corner. Walls were gouged with black marks and ripped wallpaper. Mysterious brown stains on towels. No shampoo. A dirty tissue on the desk when we arrived. Moldy shower curtain. Room smelled like mildew. Dude at the front desk was...

Very rude front desk clerk. Torn screen on first floor window meant I couldn't have the window open due to bugs and security issues. Mold smell in rugs in hallway and room. Visible mold in pool and hot tub. No coffee at breakfast, which was only milk and cereal. Even construction workers staying there opted to go to Burger King...

The Inn was close to the highway, with a couple fast food restaurants within view up the street. It was clean. The decor was current. We had the hot tub & pool all to ourselves. The included breakfast was basic but satisfied. Lots of value for a low price.
