We stayed here for the annual FIRST Robotics competition in Escanaba. This is the hotel we always stay at every year. It is conveniently located and comfortable. Our room was decent sized with a king sized bed, a table with 2 chairs, a lounge chair, a dorm sized fridge, a small microwave, a decent sized TV, and a coffee maker....

This hotel is located in Escanaba, a quiet and quaint place to stay. My husband and I made reservations and due to unforeseen circumstances, we arrived later than expected. As we were checking in (on a Tuesday night), we were given an upgrade to a room that was on the inside "courtyard", no noise/traffic, and we were pleased with our...

The beds were comfortable, the food was pretty good. The hallways were dingy, though, and the room was tight, although clean as far as we would tell. Needs some updating. Our friend who stayed across the hall from our room had to jerry-rig the lock on her door because it was broken and never really fixed. Not horrible, but really...

This hotel is in a great location for the business my husband was in town for and the Stonehouse restaurant ( a local favorite ) is within walking distance. Less then a 10 minute drive is the Stone Cup Coffee House where I enjoyed a delicious raspberry white chocolate scone and medium Chai tea for under $5.00. So good. The...

While a little dated, this hotel makes up for it with great staff, from check in to the attached restaurant everyone was very attentive and had great attitudes. The breakfast is and sit down order type, with ample portions.

We are quite pleased with the Best Western Pioneer Inn & Suites. There is no such thing as a perfect hotel, but this one comes close because of the facilities, but mostly because of the excellent caring staff. We requested several additional items for our room that the staff quickly and happily accommodated. We like that there is a very...

The hotel was clean and quiet, however it needs some updating. Staff was friendly. The breakfast was good but under staffed. The waitresses did a good job staying calm under pressure. No toiletries in bathroom.

I found this Best Western to be in need of an upgrade, but it was clean and comfortable. The set-up is a bit odd and confusing, so the front desk has to hand out maps--not exactly an ideal situation for what should be a simple, 2 floor hotel. There was a panel of siding missing from the front with no...
