I reviewed this property in 2013. I still stay here on the corporate buck using the clc card. It's still operated by the same people. I'm giving them the same marks but I will say I do see some improvement. I have always stayed in the same room upstairs 234 . Positives: very clean, newer towels and linen, comfortable king...

Rooms are very small, smaller than a Microtel. Two people will feel cramped. Funky smell (really, how much does Febreeze cost?) Extremely dated, and repairs were obviously not done by professionals. Fixtures were old and cheap - including the worn-out analog TV, Nothing at all to recommend this place. Cheap, cheap, cheap... During the fall viewing season, you can pay...

The room is clean enough it is an average hotel room with a small refrigerator and a small microwave. The problem is not with the facility it is with the owner. I put some creamer in my coffee and it was all congealed so I asked him where I could dump it out he told me to take it back...

One positive it was very very clean. The bed was so bad when you sat down the two ends would go up in the air. None of the decor matched so it wasn't inviting. The tile in the bathroom look like a two year old put it in. The same two year old painted as well. It's close to the...

Stayed one night (thankfully ONLY one). Room was dirty. Bathroom floor was filthy. Killed a couple of nasty looking spiders on the bed. Air conditioning ran, rather loudly, but did not seem to do any cooling. Phone system does not work for room to room calls. Room looks like it should have had a major upgrade 40 years ago. Not...

We chose this hotel on a fall drive to Traverse City. Since the traverse city, petoskey area gets very expensive during peak fall weekends, this seemed like a good option. Kalkaska is few miles between Petoskey & Traverse city and is a good place to stop by. But , not this Econo Lodge. For some reason it just not match...

We stayed one night here. For the price of this room, the room needed better cleaning. It had been remodeled in the past (since the 70s?) and was due for another one.A pipe in the ceiling made a noise every time the occupants upstairs turned on a faucet. We were "trapped" in our room all night because of the very...

We stayed for one night (thank goodness it wasn't longer). The room was VERY SMALL, there was a desk chair & a chair, the shower overflowed and the drain cap was loose. They put us on the second floor (had to climb the stairs) so if we needed anything we had to "unpack" our suitcases from the trunk of the...

We stayed here one night while visiting Torch Lake, our room was very dingy and smokey even though there were signs posted everywhere that there was no smoking with in 20 feet of building.
