We used this motel as a base when we visited Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The visitor center for the park is right down the street, about 1-1/2 blocks away, and the entrance to Sleeping Bear is just a few miles away. The motel is VERY basic, just a place to sleep after hiking all day or visiting the cute county beach in Empire (within walking distance). There are some gift shops, as well as restaurants and a coffee shop, all within a few blocks of the place. It has cable TV, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, and clean towels. The beds are not very comfortable; they really need to get new mattresses (which is why I rated the place "average").
