"Absolutely terrible, they have no intergerty."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Showed up to hotel, was moved to hotel next door. Entered motel to find bathroom door stuck so bad could barely open, shower had no pressure. TV had issues, no phone or clock. No place to plug coffee pot in as all plugs were over loaded. Pop machine was empty and bed very uncomfortable. Pool was located in separate building, hot tub was in another separate building and didn't work. Was told they had breakfast, but it was an apple and gronala bar in a bag which you picked up. When trying to check at 10am on dayone of a two day reservation they refused to accept the payment for one night. Saying they had no control because the owner was not around and Expedia.com decided since we booked through them. I called Expedia and they call Ed the hotel who denied all the issues. So Expedia would not refund the second day. Would never go back and use either one of these again.

"Last Resort."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Called a reservation website, told us they look at availability on 32 other local hotels. This was the only place available. Settled for $299.00 per night. Went out for supper, saw vacancy signs on many hotels. Call around. Lots of rooms available. Was lied to. It was a $60.00 room. I will be contacting the State of Michigan and filing a complaint.

"Horrible Service"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We will never go back mostly due to a poorly run hotel and a key that didn't work. Even though I had a reservation, I had to pay more money and the owner just laughed and complained.
