The bed in our room was pretty worn. The room was clean but antiquated and a bit musty. The location was very good along with the view of the lake. The walls are pretty thin so you can hear much of the activities in the adjoining rooms.

This hotel is right on the water, but the room was not up to the price for one night. It was sub-par and I was disappointed. Very dated, the tub looked gross, kinda smelly. I paid around the same price all week as we traveled through upper Michigan and the U.P. - all waterfront hotels. I paid only $30 less for this hotel than the other 5 I stayed in during the week - this was my last stop. They didn't even have shampoo or lotion in the bathroom. Not a good way to end our vacation when all the other hotels were great! We paid $220 w/ tax and booked one week ahead. Not worth it. Couldn't get on the WiFi, either, and when I called the front desk they said its because their WiFi doesn't work with over an iPhone 6. REALLY?? Guess getting an iPhone 11 was a stupid idea... Um, its 2020. The best part was sitting on the balcony and having a cold beer. I would say this is a $150/night room, only because of the water view. Maybe I booked too late? Not sure, but won't stay here again.

First room they gave us was gross, floors were dirty, there was a used tissue next to the bed, moldy food in the fridge and what appeared to be “adult” stains between the beds. Next room appeared to be clean. One staff member was polite and friendly other one not so and acted like I was dumb for not knowing breakfast was at the hotel next door. Also parking lot is quite small so wouldn’t recommend if you are coming with a trailer or RV. The kids liked the splash pad, it’s an older hotel that could be nice if they did some maintenance and had better staff. It’s right on the beach and 5 min walk to the ferry. Overall I wouldn’t recommend.

They say its a waterpark but its a splashpad and a very disgusting broken hot tub. Ill glad i didn't bring a young child. Ladies at front desk were not friendly at all. Our king size bed had a broken middle leg which made for a very rough nights sleep. Balcony was dirty. Room cleanliness was so so for the price i paid. Front desk said our view would be awesome to see fireworks but couldn't see them. Fireworks could be seen from the beach. I would NOT stay here again.

the check-in lady was rude, our first room had bed made but once opened had dirty sheets and dirt in the beds, office lady was again rude when we told her about out room, she sent someone to check the room to which they said they would changed the sheets since they were dirty, they whole room given to us was not clean, was given a second room which was cleaner than the first but still dirty. the office ladies were again very rude when told about the second room, they refused to give us a new room. we stayed only because there were no other hotels/motels available to us. not happy at all with this experience. we were not the only ones either. terribly place and would not go back again.
