Expect a different numbers and such...

Well... they had NO idea that i booked through didn't want a confirmation #, charged me like 4 bucks more than through (no big deal) but could not have cared less about who i booked through.... cool king sized bed though... wife loved that! Also booked a smoking go... $50 cleaning fee for smoking in the room so we stepped out onto our "balcony" as instructed by the manager... "balcony" being a patio door to the front yard.

4/5 Good

Definitely a value for the money. Right on a major road at the state line - easy to find. Towels were average but only one hand towel. Shower pressure was average. Pillows were superb! I do wish there was a small coffee maker in the room. The second morning - Monday we were ready for coffee at 6 am but none was in the lobby until about 7:05 am. The continental breakfast was all carbs - not good for us older folks watching sugar. But all in all this was a very satisfactory stay!

Dirty Property

The property is disgusting. Very dirty, broken windows, junk laying around outside.

Room was clean and AC worked great. Close to some stores and bike paths. Lake MI is close as well.
