BEWARE OF SMELLS

Posted Jun 12, 2017
Pros: LOCATION / APPEARED TO BE A CLEAN
Cons: FUMIGATION
Location: WAS JUST PASSING THROUGH FOR THE DAY.....
I WAS IN THE AREA DOING REAL ESTATE BUSINESS ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE MOTEL AND IT WAS LATE AND I WAS VERY TIRED FROM MY 500 MILE DRIVE AND DECIDED TO STAY THE NIGHT, EVEN THOUGH I WAS TOLD IT WAS THE LAST ROOM AVAILABLE I DID NOTICE MANY OTHER ROOM AVAILABLE (EMPTY ) ANYWAY I JUST NEEDED A HOT SHOWER AND SOME SLEEP SO I STAYED THE NIGHT, I DID NOTICE A STRONG ODER IN THE ROOM THAT REMINDED ME OF LYSOL OR PINE-SOL BUT FIGURED IT HAD JUST BEEN CLEANED SO I SHOWERED AND WENT TO SLEEP , THE NEXT MORNING AS I CHECKED OUT THE CLERK ASKED ME IF EVERYTHING WAS OK AND I INFORMED HER ABOUT THE ODER AND SHE TOLD ME THEY WERE CHANGING CLEANING SUPPLIES SO I BLEW IT OFF AS SUCH. HOWEVER DURING THE RIDE HOME I NOTICED SOME ITCHING (FELT LIKE SOMETHING CRAWLING ON ME BUT COULDN'T SEE ANYTHING ) BUT THOUGHT NOTHING OF IT AS I HAD A 350 MILE DRIVE AHEAD OF ME, IT WAS LATE BY THE TIME I GOT TO MY FRIENDS LAKE PROPERTY @ BUD LAKE IN HARRISON, AGAIN GOING TO BED SOON AFTER, THE NEXT MORNING I FOUND WHAT LOOKED LIKE A TICK ON MY FOOT AND I GRABBED IT AND SQUASHED IT , AGAIN NOT CONNECTING THE DOTS UNTIL I GOT HOME THAT NIGHT AND FOUND ANOTHER ONE ON MY SIDE , THEN I LOOKED UP ON GOOGLE TIC'S AND CRABS (BODY LICE ) AND SURE ENOUGH IT WAS A CRAB, THAT'S WHEN IT ALL CAME TOGETHER WHAT THAT SMELL WAS AND WHY I WAS ITCHING AND FELT LIKE SOMETHING WAS CRAWLING ON ME WHEN I COULDN'T SEE ANYTHING... I STAYED IN ROOM #115 IF YOU WANT TO CHECK IT OUT.....

Thank you for taking the time to comment on a recent stay with us. Yes, we appreciate you pointing out that we have already switched our chemicals to a less-antiseptic odor but have kept the cleaning ability. I believe my clerk told you we were nearly full and that yours was the last queen bed, where only the economy rooms with full-size beds were available. In the woods of the upper and lower peninsulas, insects are in the grasses and trees so it's very possible you picked one up, either in Marquette or at lake property as they attach to you/clothing when you brush against them. I'm not sure to what "dots" you refer. Lice is something transmitted from person to person, which has nothing to do with the smell of our cleaning products or the other insects you mentioned. We do not have to have our property fumigated, never have, and I'm happy to share the results of any periodic tests we have conducted. I'm sorry your stay was uncomfortable but I hope you were able to complete your business to a good end while you were here.

Spacious Cottage

Posted May 29, 2017
We rented one of the cottages that are part of this property and we were very impressed. It was quiet, clean and spacious. We were able to entertain our friends with plenty of room to spare. There was a fully stocked kitchenette with dishes, toaster, wine/beer opener, etc. the staff was very friendly and helpful.

It's wonderful that you had such a nice visit with us. The cottages are booked frequently and for just the reasons you said. Folks have some privacy and it feels more like home. We just put up the flat-screens also so that adds to the coziness. And thanks to our staff for how hard they work every day!

Thank you for the comments you offered after staying with us. I'm sorry the housekeeper was not more friendly when you were having breakfast; some of our student employees find it difficult to be on duty so early so perhaps that was part of it. I'm happy to say we removed the last of our old TVs this week so now we have flat-screens throughout all 43 rooms.

Run Away

Posted May 7, 2017
This management and staff is the worst kind of people to own a business. No morals.
Comment from Hotel Management
May 18, 2017 by LD, Hotel Management
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. More and more often, folks place reservations on-line with a travel agent and don't know the policies that the agency requires them to follow, or basically, read the fine print. Since we have a contract with these internet agents, we are required to follow their rules and regulations or we forfeit our ability to continue working with them. Recently, for example, Expedia has stopped allowing modifications to reservations, whether that's a date or room change. The reservation you placed was for a Thursday to arrive that night, and you said you wanted Friday. We had no availability Friday so the Expedia website wouldn't have allowed you to reserve and they wouldn't have let you modify it even if we did have rooms; there is also a 48-hour cancellation deadline. These are pretty standard requirements when reservations are booked on-line. All of this considered, your comments about our management, staff or morals doesn't apply to your particular reservation, since you did not stay with us.

Great hotel for a quick trip for medical reasons

Posted Mar 25, 2017
Pros: The price is great for a quick stay.
Cons: This motel is nice, but could use a few updates.
Location: Mqt is a great location for winter sports, but I LOVE Mqt in the summer. Lake Superior is beautiful! One of the greater things in Mqt is TJMAXX!!! :)
My son & I had to be in Mqt for a dental appt. I didn't want to spend alot of $ when we were only there to sleep. (would rather have extra $ to shop since we don't have many places to shop in the copper country.) I'd stayed here years ago & I remember it being a nice place. It suited our needs just fine. I just wish the hot tub was open later. After several hrs of shopping, it would've been nice to relax in the spa. So, the bathtub had to do.
