UP on business

Posted Feb 11, 2017
Cons: Needs maintenance work on ceiling and a new TV
Location: Convenient to food places.
Staff were friendly at check-in but the room was not so great. Started with the outside door with the key that didn't fit well. The room was clean and tidy but dated with some needed maintenance like ill fitting ceiling tiles and an old tube TV that worked poorly. As there is not much to choose from in the area this was not too bad for a night.

We've just upgraded our motel WiFi, by adding a 4th access point - 5 ghz - and installed all new GB switches. Having to choose with limited funds, most people demand WiFi before TV's. Now, before summer season begins, YES we will have flat screen TV's! Our furnishings are older, but in great working condition! Being a "chain" motel, often our rates are 20% to 40% LESS than the other chains! With the money you're saving, can't you accept "dated furnishings" in good shape? By the way, most of our rooms have outside entrances, exposed to the weather. Not a good situation for electronic locks.......

Nice hotel for an overnight stay.

Posted Oct 22, 2016
Room & bathroom were clean. And it was nice to have a microwave, fridge & coffee maker in the room. The TV was a bit outdated, but we were just there overnight. The worse thing was the smell in the office when we checked in. Not sure if they were cooking lunch, but it was not appetizing. Otherwise, it was the best value in town.

Clean and comfortable

Posted Jul 31, 2016
Pros: Location. Easy to find. Very clean. Had microwave, coffee pot and fridge
Cons: Did not offer breakfast, but there are many places to eat nearby.
Location: Parks, ski hills and Lake Superior within 15 miles.
Nice, clean and pleasant room. The room was large and nicely furnished. We could park in front of the room entry, which was convenient.

Thanks for staying with us! We offer discount coupons to a number of area restaurants instead of a continental "cereal and bananas" breakfast like the other motels. We do this so that our guests can enjoy reduced cost meals ANY time of the day, more choices, and better chefs! Works out great!

Above average stay.

Posted Oct 5, 2015
Room was clean and spacious with slightly dated decor and television. The bathroom area was spacious and clean and the beds were a little firm but definitely better than others that we slept on last week. Convenient location and easy access. Good stay.

Convienient

Posted Oct 1, 2015
Pros: Convienient
Cons: Needs to be updated.
Again, the only reason I have stayed here twice is strictly convienience as a halfway point of a drive. The room is itself is clean, but very dated. For whatever reason, they don't leave shampoo in the room, you have to ask for it at the front desk...weird. The beds have to be the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on...rock hard, perhaps some would like it..not me.

When we bought new mattresses and box springs, we asked what "firmness" was most popular with people. The Simmons Beautyrest representative told us that it was their "medium firm" mattresses. That's what we bought. Our apologies if they were uncomfortable for you.

Nice hotel for a one night stay.

Posted Sep 4, 2015
Location: The location was tough because of road construction on the Main Street. It was hard to find because,of that.
The manager was accommodating and pleasant. The room was average, but clean.

Our apologies for the road construction difficulties. However, the highway sure is nice now! Thanks for navigating the obstacle course to find us!

Bates motel

Very outdated, sulfate smell after cleaning did not stay went to a other hotel are the room charges.

Our rooms are clean, and well maintained. Our apologies if there is a faint cleaning smell. Our furnishings are dated, but they are well maintained, and reflective of our position as a "no frills", budget motel. Our lower room rates support the savings our guests enjoy by staying with us!

A Great Stay.

Posted Aug 24, 2015
Pros: The bathroom, light fixtures, beds.
Cons: Availability and moods of staff when you come into the office. Woman pleasant, man seemed stressed and unavailable.
Location: Nice town with nice people.
Our room was the cleanest best maintained room we have ever stayed at, including the higher priced rooms. The price is great, the area of town good. The fan exhaust in the bath room powerful. The beds were firm and comfortable, pillows good. The atmosphere of the room pleasant. Everything updated. Great little Inn with lots of big benefits.

Thanks for the feedback and comments about our room! Apologies for my stressed appearance. 13 years of working 100+ hours per week is wearing me out!!
