Honestly, when we first arrived, we were a little suspicious of this property. However, we spent 3 nights there, and if back in the area, will stay there again. The room was very spacious, and while everything was a bit outdated, it was clean. Mattresses were comfortable, so we slept well! Would recommend bringing your own towels - extremely thin/worn.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The first night we had a drink at the bar and got the lay of the land from the extremely knowledgeable & friendly bartender.
We really liked the location. While in town, we could walk everywhere. Our "touring" took us down the west coast of the Keweenaw Peninsula one day, and down the east coast the next. We feel if we had stayed in Houghton (which we considered) we would have spent only one day going up & down the peninsula and would have missed a lot of beautiful sights!
I think it helped that we acknowledged lodging in the U.P., especially in the western area, was going to be a little more "rustic" than we are used to, but going with an open mind made things easier.
We would definitely stay there again!
