Nice break from a typical cookie cutter chain hotel. A great mom and Pop hotel that was clean and comfortable and quiet. Rates are very reasonable for February. Easy to get to lots of local restaurants,stores and ice rink.

This is a small motel, the kind where you can park in front of your room. We were there in the fall, and there were few people traveling then. This is a nice, clean motel across from the lake. We asked for a quieter room and were given one furthest from the road.

Owner very helpful. Nice clean little motel for a very reasonable price. Right across from the lake. I called last minute and was lucky to get a room for our weekend color tour. We like to support local business owners whenever possible.

A last minute bike trip vacation had us scrambling for a hotel room, so when we read the reviews on Trip Advisor for 40 Winks we decided to give it a try. We got the last room available for Saturday. It was clean as most hotels and had a great bed for a great nights sleep. Shower was great but...

Clean, friendly place. Nothing fancy but then all we wanted was a clean, safe place to sleep and shower. Would stay there again. Reminded me of something in the 1950's which we kind of liked. If you want upscale then it's not your kind of place.

Quiet, pleasant motel, great for someone who needs a place to stay while visiting or checking out the area. Very friendly reception, staff, fellow travelers. Wonderful view of the lake, and the owner was very helpful and knew the area well to help a house hunter wanting to learn about the town.

Front desk greeting, fair. Small rooms, a little dated, but clean. Did have a blocked sink, lady did come straight away with her roter router thing! A charming little place none the less. Micro/Fridge, no coffee maker. Great view/beach across the street on Lake Huron. Nice enough place to stay for an overnighter, price was right at about $70 -...

I booked a room here for my family of three and was satisfied with our stay. The room was clean and comfortable, and the price was very reasonable. The motel is a stone's throw away from Lake Huron. It's nothing fancy but was exactly what we were looking for. We would be happy to stay here again.

Every year we always stay at the 40 winks when we come to Alpena. It is a well kept motel across from the beach. The rates are excellent. The rooms have all had fresh paint. The motel is close to all the excellent Lake Huron attractions in Alpena. It is a great place to stay if you making the lake...
