“Happy”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

Stayed the night here while passing through. Right across the street from a public beach. Clean room, working on a budget, happy with this choice. Friendly owner. Would stay again if in town. Beds were comfortable.

My wife and I were coming up to Alpena to stay awhile and were looking around at different places to stay. The franchise hotels were all booked, so it only left the small motels. 40 Winks may not look like much, but, for 50 dollars I would stay here every time I came back to Alpena. If you're just looking for a cold place to escape the heat, or a warm place to stay at, nothing in Alpena beats the value of 40 Winks. The rooms show age, but everything is clean and smelled good. I'd give the place 4 star rating. Update the walls and decor in the rooms and it could easily be 5 star. Thanks!

If you're just looking for a clean and budget-friendly place to sleep while enjoying the Lake Huron shore, then the 40 Winks may be for you. Our room had a queen bed, fridge, and TV, with a microwave available in the rental office. There's a public park right across the street, where you can swim in the lake anytime (it's shallow and sandy along that stretch -- a good spot for kids). Right next door is a quaint miniature golf course with a friendly owner (after playing there two days in a row, he gave my husband and I a free game) and there's a Dairy Queen a few doors down as well. We weren't interested in fancy accommodations during our visit to Alpena, so this motel was perfect for us (and for $50 a night, the price was definitely right). We'd be happy to stay there again on a future trip to the area.

Ok value for $50. Room was small and reasonably clean, but dust has accumulated b tv and fridge. We left our room at 10:15 am the first day and were told by the maid that we were too late to get our room cleaned. The manager was apathetic - coffee was available one morning out of three, no iron to lend, told me rooms went for $30-$40 after charging us $50, but overall a good value in Alpena in July.
