We spent the night here on Sept 4 and we will not go back. The first room they assigned us had a wet floor from window to bed and the carpeting smelled musty. I asked for a new room and it was dry but had huge cobweb in room on ceiling. Less then an hour after we moved, they had...

Absolutely horrible! Dirty carpets especially by the bed near the headboard, unable to walk on without shoes. Bathtub do dirty, I would have dirtier using it. Dirty bathroom floor. Management impossible to reach to confront with the problem.

PLease stay away from this place, the staff is very nice and accomodating but that is it. The bed sheets were torn as was the blanket, there was garbage under the beds. The breakfast was not ready until after 7:30 am , we ended opting for breakfast at Bob Evans across the street. The whirlpool was not working either. LOUSY...

I booked this hotel because it was the ONLY hotel that had a room available on a busy weekend for the Charlevoix Art Fair. I wasn't expecting excellence but dirty towels just isn't acceptable. The first 2 towels I grabbed had obvious stains - makes me wonder if they were left from the previous guest but then I noticed a...

It sure was separate- door closed on a room with no window or air conditioner. Beds old and uncomfortable. There was a couch...

I booked a room here because it was the only room I could find in the area, I see why it was only room available. I wouldn't recommend this room even if your desperate, stay home or sleep in your car before you stay here. My wife and I arrive on a Friday late afternoon after making the 3.5 hour...

totally neglected property,floor was dirty, phone did not work and no remote for the tv to be able to change channels. All of this and the rates were extremely high too. Other hotels were booked, but now we know why this was still available. We needed 7 rooms and every room was terrible.

This place was disgusting. There was blood on the sheets and needles above the door. We showed up after midnight and there were a couple of guys shooting off fireworks in the parking lot. If you value peace of mind and a clean play to stay, don't even consider this place.

Every hotel in Petoskey was booked solid, air conditioner made loud noise and we couldn't use it, floor is dirty, mold in cracks around tub, beds were clean. This place needs help. Only would stay here if there is no other choices. We stayed here a few years ago and it wasn't bad, it's really gone downhill.

We recently had to stay here because we had to bring our dog. This place allows dogs so it was here we stayed. Did it have paint chipping off the walls in the bathroom ? Yes. Were there holes in the sheets? Yes. Was the pool green? Yes. But for the small amount we paid; the beds were comfortable, the...
