The guy at the desk was friendly, however, the “ continental breakfast” was only bread. He was nice enough to let me use his personal Keurig. We stayed 2 nights & our room was never cleaned.

There was plenty of parking. My room was big with lots of room to get around. It looked like some tiling was coming off, but not bad.

Its okay if you are local or around and traveling by car, that ways you can carry all the breakfast. Coz you wont get anything but coffee coz "thats all they have " . Unless you show up at 6 30 am for some white bread, banana, donuts.. and that too if you ask ! Otherwise on the way to put in bay and Detroit driving wise.

may i say hills have eyes .. this hotel is on the back side of town facing route 2 . everything from the drunk naked fisherman next door , the guy at 1:30 am carrying a camping grill like it was a satanic ritual .. and walking it to the weeds dumping it in the grass then getting on all fours turning his head and looking at me look at him … no no no i have seen this movie !! to the maybe young lady possibly working pacing back and fourth in the parking lot , to the bon fire out back with a bunch of people .. the broken shower , the solid ceiling that was cut and had one drop ceiling tile that may have led over to the drunk naked fisherman’s room .. this was just plain NOPE … luckily i’m home alive and not in that camping grill !!!

We had booked 2 rooms and because of our credit card technical issue there was difficulty processing the payment so the day we reached at night we came to know our reservation was cancelled which is understandable but we never got any phone call from the staff or the owner about difficulty in processing payment or doing our cancellation without giving any prior notice to us . Luckily there were still rooms available so we were able to get the rooms and the owner was fair enough to provide us rooms at the price agreed on the original reservation . The owner /staff should give prior notice before cancellation . And the other disappointment was that the breakfast time was from 6.30am to 9.30 am We came at 8.55 am for the breakfast and the breakfast was out of stock and no one in the dining area or the reception to talk to . Why was there not enough breakfast for everyone until the end 9.30 am? When we paid the breakfast was included ....Things to be considered by the owner /staff of this Motel for future customers. We will not be returning here .
