Walking into the lobby I had hopes for the room. The owner was helpful with restaurants and places to walk.
the room was another matter. The carpet was dingy and worn at the door. Wooden window frames had mold. Shades patched with packing tape. It was supposed to be a nonsmoking room but there was a melted hole in the bathroom curtain. The air conditioned was over the bed and it dripped on us.
Walls were clean.

Maybe the owners just can't keep up. If you want to see what can be done with an old roadside motel, check out the Rocket in Custer SD.

After reading the reviews I tried out this place. Nice and clean. Our room was on the backside so the highway sound did not effect us. I always travel with a fan and ear plugs (husband snores) :)
BUT I think I would need them anyway if I were on the highway side. It is a great value.

This is a very nice and extremely clean budget motel. Although it is a dated property, it is definitely well maintained. I agree with the reviewer who commented on the lighting and the towels. The lighting in the bedroom and the bathroom is way above average, and the towels were amazingly thick and soft. Since the property is on the main highway, I was concerned that traffic noise might disturb sleep, but it was not a problem. The owners were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was limited, but adequate for me. People who like a big breakfast would probably do well to breakfast at a nearby restaurant.

Family run small motel. Room dated but very clean. The couple that run this are very nice and accommodating. Good value for the area. Just wanted a room and did not want to pay chain hotel prices. Saw this reviewed as clean so knew it would be a good spot to stay.

Clean, budget place to stay. Great lighting (typically I've found most hotel and motels have poor lighting, but this room had excellent lighting). Nice towels for a budget motel. Small bathroom, but everything was clean and nice. The owner was very nice too.

Room Tip: As with most motels, bring ear plugs, this is a quiet place, but you can hear road noice.

My wife and I stayed here one night. Very clean, comfortable beds, & very nicely-decorated rooms. We didn't see any breakfast, & didn't use the WIFI, so I can't really say much on those. However the couple who runs the motel is very friendly and accomodating. If you're looking for the best-value lodging in Ishpeming, this is the place to go. We would definitely stay again! The rooms are comperable to the larger, more expensive hotels in town for much cheaper.
