The hosts were very accommodating. The view of Lake Michigan was outstanding and the price was excellent. Watched windsurfers, fishermen and dancing waves from the comfort of our roon. Very simple and clean rooms. Plan on staying there again

I'm giving it a 3 because the family was nice and tried really hard to make things decent and comfortable. And, you can have your dogs. When I arrived I was really disappointed because the pictures I had seen did not show the road cutting through the property between the motel and Lake Michigan. Then I opened the old dilapidated door to the room and there was no screen just glass, in the screen door, and the room was very hot. I had two dogs with me and was really worried. I turned on the air conditioner and cold air was not coming out. I went and told the owner and he did bring me a screen for the screen door and by that time the air conditioner was kicking out cool air thank goodness. With the dogs and paying for the refrigerator the room was $400 for two nights. It's a good location but the room was old and so were the doors and windows and paint. The beds were okay and the room was pretty clean. I had to laugh at the light above the table though, with no shade and the way I had to move the curtains around the AC. Seemed like too much money to pay for a room in that state and with a road between the motel and a public beach in front. What we do for our fur babies. 🥰

We stayed here as a couple and the location is just amazing, a few steps from the beach and walking distance to town. Since we didn’t make a reservation beforehand we didn’t get a room with beach view. The interior is quite old but had everything we needed. There was no breakfast served and unfortunately there are no places to have breakfast nearby. But the closeness to the beach made up for everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
