The Room That we were is was amazingly clean, The beds had clean sheets and were very comfy, Outside was so Peaceful. We are from a small town in New York, where there is more woods and animals then people. and this reminded us of being at home. We weren't there for business but for family matters and being able...

We highly recommend staying at the Triangle Motel. Thanks to the wonderful comments from guests who favorably shared their experiences on Trip Advisor we booked this without looking anywhere else. Owner, MIchelle, was very sweet to point out suggested restaurants and we enjoyed the Crossroads Bar within a short walk and a superb breakfast at JJ Ruby's. Clean and comfortable...

I stayed one night at the Triangle Motel in Alma, MI on business. It is the type of small motel those of us who are often on the road dream about, but rarely find. The rooms are well equipped, the beds are comfortable, and the linens, bathroom, etc. are pristine and clean. Michelle and Judy are polite, professional and always...

I have traveled in this area for years. The thought of staying in one of the other local hotels just made my stomach turn. This trip I over heard someone mention this hotel. I had never heard of it. It is not on the path that I had usually traveled for my annual business trip.

The motel is very old! Very well kept! Everything was clean and in good condition! The lady running the place couldn't have been nicer! If and when we go back to Alma to go to the Elks lodge we would certainly stay here!

Yes, the motel was built in the mid 50's. We have chosen to maintain the original outside to keep it's vintage integrity while updating and providing modern comforts within the rooms. We are pleased that you would stay with us again. Thank you so much for your feedback. Judy & Michelle

This is clearly a labor of love for the owners. This classic roadside motel has been updated in such a way that it hasn't lost its retro charm. Right off of 127, it's right between the small towns of St. Louis and Alma, both of which offer a couple of good places for a meal. If you are on a...

I needed a place to stay in Alma for the night, and had already had a bad experience elsewhere. Decided to try the Triangle Motel and am so glad that I did. Very reasonably priced, the desk person was very nice, and the room was super cute and very clean. Would highly recommend & definitely would stay again.

“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. ”
