Ugh. Supposed to be a no-smoking room -- it stunk like 50 people had just smoked a thousand cigarettes and had been doing so for years -- that lovely fresh/stale combination of stink. Owner's dog ran into our room as we were leaving and peed on the floor -- no owner in sight. To owner's credit, he offered us to... More

Tawas motel was holding a garage sale when we got there, which we found very strange and unprofessional. I was not a fan of the sun room area, it was a spot for people to get loud around your room. The room was not clean at all, especially the bathroom. There was dirt and dead insects in the bathroom window... More

I came across the motel as I was driving thru Tawas, not expecting to spend the night. I found the place to be very friendly, helpful, informative. The owner (Bob) was very nice to chat with, with a good sense of humor. I couldn't have been happier with the room. It was decorated very cute; was quiet, had lots of... More

My husband and I (mid 50's) stayed 2 nights in August 2008 for a golf outing. It is a small property, family owned. Yes, it is older but we liked the feel of the old time "Up North" motels. It was very clean and looked like it had brand new carpet. I didn't care for the look of the water... More

I did not know what to expect in a "non chain" hotel, and I was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean and had all of the expected amenities you would find in a chain. The room also had a small refrigerator which came in handy for my sodas and dinner leftovers. I enjoyed the heated oudoor pool which was... More

I traveled through Tawas City on business a couple weeks ago and found a decently priced room that exceeded my expectations. Although I was traveling alone, the facilities seemed like a great place to bring my family to this summer. There was plenty of things to do to keep the kids entertained, plus the room was very clean. The guy... More

The owners (Bob & Colleen) are very compassionate caring people. They went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable during a stressful time for me. I had to move to Tawas from Saginaw, MI for 6 weeks Monday thru Friday's for a college internship. It was winter and the drive was not a good idea. I... More
