We stayed the weekend here in room 122 and were pleasantly surprised with the room. The room was definitely more updated than some other local motels and the view from the back was really nice. Others have mentioned that there is not beach access. I don't think the website said there was, but I think people assume there is an actual beach because of the name. There is no sandy beach. You can tell that the motel is actually quite old based on the texture on the ceiling of the room, but it has been updated for the most part. The bathroom was not as updated as the actual room. The room had crown moulding while the bathroom had 1x4 as crown. Not pretty. The bathroom left a bit to be desired but it was functional. I will say that the other review that mentioned the loose headboards was accurate. Just sitting on the end of the bed to put on shoes caused the headboard to smack the wall. We did not have the issue with the mosquitos in the room like other reviewers had. Our main issue was the lack of drapes on the windows. There are mini blinds but they do very little to keep the room dark so we woke up at 5:30 every morning because the room was so bright. They really need to put up drapes-preferably light blocking drapes. The mini fridge was actually larger than expected and very handy. The free ice was a nice feature as well because it saved a trip into town in the morning before heading out to Pictured Rocks. The breakfast was sparse but the blueberry mini muffins were tasty. There were no hot items so if you are looking for a hotel with a great breakfast, this is not it. The parking lot has no painted lines creating a row in the large center area of the lot so when the lot gets full in the evening, people seem confused about parking. There is plenty of space but some additional painted parking spots would just make parking easier. Overall, this was way better than we expected. It was a bit expensive but that was true of almost everywhere in the area, so it was not out of line with the nearby lodging options. We will stay again.
