East Jordan visit Dec 30
We came up to visit family bringing son and granddaughter. We booked the family room that was absolutely perfect! As always very professional and clean as a whistle! The new mattress was awesome 👍 thank you and Happy New Year 👍

November Stay
The location was just outside the main area of town. Nice views, close to beaches. Would be a nice place to go to in the summer. Clean and friendly staff. We had a toilet set break, and was fixed within an hour. Towels were easily accessible. A couple of things need attention. The handle on the bathroom sink was not attached to the faucet - it needed a set screw to hold in place. We were visiting in freezing weather and the walk ways were slippery from the melted snow on the roof. The eves did not catch all of the water.

8/10 Very good

We were sent the wrong virtual passcode. She answered immediately and corrected it. Thank you. The room was very cozy but the mattress was not very suitable. Really loved the experience minus the lack of sleep mattress.

Cute Motel in East Jordan
South Arms Retreats in E. Jordan is a cute place to stay. Across from the water, the 8 unit motel looks like it has been recently updated with more to come. The room we were in was small by most standards but had what we needed for our mid-week stay; queen bed, fridge, microwave, coffee, A/C, gas heater, fan, tiny bathroom with a decent shower and everything else you’ll need. Remote sign-in and electronic lock entry is convenient and the owners seem very responsive (mostly by text).
