“OK, but not worth the money”
Reviewed 28 December 2007

We stayed here on an adventure through the UP. The hotel is OK. Some of the good things are that there is a Country Kitchen and McDonald's within walking distance, however, they close around 10 pm-ish. Also, the room we had was clean, it was well lit, and we had a nice view of some trees out our window (We were in on the back side of the hotel). Also, there is heat and AC. We only used the heat, and that worked fine. I was not impressed with the bedding, especially the pillows. They were lumpy and not real comfortable. It didn't bother me, but the bathroom is REAL small, clean, but small, it might be difficult for larger people to move around. They guy working the desk was very helpful. We didn't use the pool. There is Wi-Fi in the common areas, but we were able to pick it up in our room (Which was about as far from the lobby as you can get.) There are also land lines in each room, but I didn't see the hook up in ours. The room came with a pretty nice TV that has a LOT of channels for a hotel. We were all pretty impressed by the selection. The hotel is pretty nice, but for $100 plus tax, I would have expected it to be a little nicer, especially the pillows. I would have rated it higher if the price was a little better.

Pricey. We just completed a trip across the UP and that was the thing that stood out about this motel. It was clean, but we didn't feel that it was worth the money. ($89.00 with tax.)

This was a great hotel to stop at mid-way through our trip across the UP. Compared to everywhere else we stayed, it was much more expensive (and even the breakfast vouchers didn't help us break even!). The property was clean, beds luxurious and pool and hot tub were open late to get the ants out of our kids' pants after being in the car all day. It was nice and close to Da Yoopers tourist trap and Lowry's Pasty Shop--both a MUST if you pass through Ishpeming!
