8/10 Very good

Family get away
Very nice place, you can tell they have been remodeling and updating as they can. The rooms were very clean, quiet and friendly service. The only 2 drawbacks were the pool was pretty chilly, but the hot tub felt great. We had tried to change form of payment on and wasn't able to (not the hotels fault) and we had selected the pay at property option. They charged us early in the morning before we were ever there. The owners wife was willing to reverse charge so I could use other card but I chose not to. Overall, staff is great, very clean and the location is great. We would definitely stay here again.

Very Nice and Clean. Only issue was everytime the Air Conditioning started up it sounded like a Motorcycle Revving it's engine outside.

10/10 Exceptional

One of the best places to stay.
Skip the chain hotels that are owned by problematic people, and stay at places like this. Everyone that we interacted with,whether it was the front desk or housekeeping was really nice. It was also really clean and comfortable. We both thought the unique coffee machine was cool. Never saw one like it before, but it was easy to use. It was kind of like a keurig but with a filter of sorts. Really convenient to have a microwave & mini fridge to store leftovers, or save coffee creamer for the morning. We had a nice partial lake view. It really was nice to just walk across the road and there's the birdge and Lake Huron. Very convenient location at a great price. 10/10 for sure.
