We were hoping for a little better than you get here. No in room coffee, only coffee in the office that was so weak we couldn't drink it. The room was small but clean and had a good bed. I would not consider staying here again unless the price was around fifty dollars!

What I look for in a room is friendliness, cleanliness, value and convenience. I've stayed in a lot of motels, and this cute little spot managed to impress me on all of those points. If you're reading the other reviews and you're worried about staying here, don't be. This is a sound choice with great value. The furniture is newer and kept in good repair. The bedroom was immaculate and the bed was wonderfully soft. I slept like a rock. The bathroom was clean and well-stocked with the necessities. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.They went out of their way accommodate our late schedule and make us feel welcome in Munising. They gave us great recommendations about places to visit and food to eat. I would love to stay here again on my next visit to the UP, and I would recommend this place to my friends.

I've been wanting to visit Munising for sometime now and was pleasantly surprise by how nice this motel was despite the other reviews. The staff was very attentive to all our needs. Complaints regarding the traffic noise is exaggerated. The motel is located next to the highway but that was no surprise as we also choose it due to its location. It was clean and affordable. Will defiantly stay there again

The owners are very pleasant. The rooms need help. I had to ask for a blow dryer and a coffee pot. I think these are basics today and should be automatically included in every room. The lamp next to the bed did not work. The windows opened, which I liked. However, the noise from the trucks and traffic was very loud. There wasn't adequate room to put our suitcases. All in all, I would not stay here again. I was surprised by the trip advisor rating. Trip Advisor gave them a pretty good rating. This is the 1st time I have found I disagree.

Room Tip: Good luck.....

Never again. We did not get any sleep because the rooms sit so close to the highway and the noise of the highway kept us up ALL night. We tried to turn on the fan and have that muffle out the noise, but the fan would not stay on constistently-it was rigged with thermostat. When I spoke with the management about this all I got was, "I've never heard that before." What a bunch of hogwash. Our window was shut completely and also was the door. She told me they never had that complaint before. IMPOSSIBLE! If you are looking for a good night's rest-STAY AWAY from the Alger Falls Motel.

I told the customer that I have had people mention the road noise, but once the door and window were closed they couldn't hear it. The room they were in was on the end, closest to the road. The heater units do go on and off with the temperature but only if you have them set to cool or heat. There is a fan only setting as well which will keep the fan running all night. The customer also complained about the rate saying it said different on the internet (which he admitted he was wrong about). He did not have any complaints about the room, just the road noise.

My wife and I were disappointed with this property. It had been rated highly as being clean, comfortable and affordable. It is affordable, but you get what you pay for. Our room, #102 had a terrible musty smell when we checked in. We thought the room just needed to be aired out. It never got any better, on the last morning we looked under the sink and found a 4-5 inch circle of black mold from a leaking drain. We told the desk clerk on our departure and she told us she knew nothing about it, perhaps some time checking their rooms might help. The person on duty never offered to compensate us in any way for this unacceptable condition.

My wife did laundry and could not get the washing machine to start,she asked the front desk and was told it was tied into the light circuit. Turn on the light and the washer works.

The motel is older and needs some attention, the towels are small and thin, open windows are noisy due to how close the road is to the property.

The owner responded to his last poor rating with a number of excuses and promises for action, if he is truly dedicated to customer service, I invite him to contact us and discuss our concerns.

Room Tip: Check the room before you give them your credit card.

I do not make excuses only state facts. We take great pride in our motel and the amount of work we have put into it. We can't please everyone and can't catch everything, but I can say that we have a lot of happy customers that return. Unfortunately, the unhappy ones are the ones writing the reviews. I just wish you could have seen this place when we got it 12 years ago.

Visited during the Ice Festival. It was a two night stay. Thought it cost a little more than I wanted for a simple hotel, but overall found myself really satisfied.
Clean Rooms, helpful staff, fun rec room, good location, decent coffee
