My daughter and I came to rural Alma, Michigan to visit my Grandfather. There are only three lodging options in the area, and we went for the Triangle, based on the reviews. After driving past the other options, we knew we'd made a good choice. The motel is clean and comfortable. The rooms are a small and simple, but well-maintained.... More

Older motel but very nice place to stay. This is one of cleanest motels we have ever stayed in. If you are looking for newer lodging with pools and other items that are wanted but not really needed, this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a very clean, friendly affordable place to spend a...

Easy express way access, no frills room. Clean, comfortable place to sleep. Owner was very nice,and friendly. Parking lot/driveway was the only downside.One driveway is narrow (passage was blocked by a lawn mower). The other is an unpaved drive share by the bar next door. The third is obscured by bush making existing a little difficult.

We stayed one night in a nice little motel room. Very clean and well maintained. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Vouchers for coffee across the street at Citgo was nice. I would highly recommend this small motel if need a place to stay in the Alma area.

Triangle Motel is a great little motel. It was clean, has newer features like wifi and flatscreen tv's, and the other furnishings had been updated too. We stayed in #4 (single Queen bed). Mattress was firm, the way we like it. And, the wall AC was easy to set, kept the room comfortable. We did not use the microwave or... More

U can not find a cleaner and nicer place at a better price, and theirs is very low for the nice place. All things are in the area like good food and services. Gas Station across the street all car needs and god snacks.you can find a great place called J J Ruby"s down the road for a wonderful meal.

The location off Hwy 27 was perfect for the purposes of my trip. Very clean room, quiet location with pleasant and efficient staff. I appreciated the vouchers for free coffee/soda from the Citgo across the street. Many of the guests seemed to be repeat customers. Should I need to return, this would be my choice

“Owner is very nice. I haven't stayed in an accommodation like this since I was little & traveling with my family. Feels like a throw back to the '60's. Clean, People quiet. Expressway noisy. Owner is extremely nice and accommodating. But for her, after seing it, I would have tried to change my reservation to stay elsewhere. ”
