If you've stayed at other Holiday Inn Expresses, you will find this one similar to all the others. Definitely not a 5 star hotel, but is pretty nice for the area. Location right on the water is perfect.

Is it possible to get a room with a shower with detachable spray handle
Good evening!! I will be traveling to the Alpena area in a couple of weeks and have a small dog (15 lbs) that I will be traveling with...does your hotel accept pets? Thank you!
This may be too late for you, but I just saw the question. The hotel only allows service animals, not pets. Their website indicates that there are several boarding kennels nearby.

"Fourth floor or any floor facing the water is great. However, the elevators are a little slow."
"We were on the 4th floor, facing the water. Room 410 I think. It was quiet, but the water view is obstructed by a lot of trees."
"Try to get a river view."
"top floor facing the river"
