Very clean older motel. I was very surprised at how clean and warm it is. The interior is very retro, but very clean. I have stayed at brand new places that could take a lesson on how a clean room is. They did have a flat screen tv, which was cool. The snowmobile trail is right outside the door. A...

Location is in center of town. A lot of stores, restaurants, pubs are with in walking distance. Quick drive to anything else in Gaylord. The rooms were very clean. We stayed during winter and the heater worked very well. The person in the office that checked us in was friendly. The hotel is quiet and beds are comfy.

I paid $49.95 (fees/taxes included) for my room. I had everything I needed, except for fresh smelling air. I think the management has attempted to make the room smell better, but has over-perfumed the room. I felt like my nose was irritated by the dry, scented air. Everything else was fine. Clean comfortable bedHuge TV. Microwave, powerful hair dryer, good...

We needed a room for one night on a weekend. Everything in town seemed to be full. We passed this place twice, but it doesn't really look like a motel. There are two floors. We got a 1st floor room, and like other reviews state it was very basic; also, very clean. Front desk person was friendly. Beds were comfortable....

Room was very big and air conditioning is good and cold I'd say the tv is a 40 inch microwave, an mini fridge. I would recommend this place to anyone coming to this area! Your walking distance to pubs,restaurants,and shopping you can't beat the price

This motel doesn't look good on the outside, but it's very clean and in good condition on the inside. Everything looks like it's from the 70's but it's not falling apart or crusty. They keep it clean, and the room is spacious (includes microwave and fridge). The TV is huge! The only negative: they serve a "free breakfast" but it's...

A clean, quiet, and comfortable budget motel just one block from downtown Gaylord, three or four blocks from the freeway. Walking distance to local restaurants. Newly renovated rooms. Comfortable mattress. Owner is friendly and helpful. Free wi fi. Large flat screen (42"?).

Outside looks old and questionable but it was "squeaky clean" as advertised, with tasteful and adequate furnishings. Bed was very comfortable. Limited breakfast time and items. Easy access just off Main Street.

Nice hotel, great rate, Very clean, very nice renovations. Definitely will stay again!!! Chose the second floor if you don't want to hear some drunks going by, not complaining,just an observation. No fault of the owners, just location.
