Expect a comfortable and safe place to lay your head here at Jill's Motel. The bed in room 5 has that perfect combination of firmness and fluff; the pillows seem like new best friends to gently take you to your nightly dreams. The (down?) comforter was crisp and fluffy and warm. So much so that we turned on the air to take advantage of it. Needless to say, we slept very well...until sunrise (which on this date was 5:56AM). This is when we realized lined curtains would do a great service to this room for those who don't want to join the day as early as our sun.
There are no amenities to speak of or activities. This is the kind of place you sleep at while checking out a new town or re-visiting an old favorite. There is the beautiful Lake Charlevoix directly across the street and there's even a creek that cuts through the backyard of the motel making its way there. Its quaint, simple, natural.
When we entered our room there was a distinct and unpleasant odor of bug spray. It didn't dissipate much while we left for dinner at Murrey's (go there for good food and beer). But once we were in the room for awhile I guess we just got used to it...and there were NO bugs!
The shower was perfect for me (5'2" 130#) but awkard and quite amusing from my POV as my husband took his turn.
Everything in the room, in the bathroom and on the grounds was spotless and tidy.
If you're visiting this area and a simple room is all you need, this is your place.
