Though it was December and cold outside we had a comfortable place to stay which made it convenient to spend time with our local family who live in town. The room was spacious and clean. We slept comfortably. Will definitely return. The area is beautiful in both winter and summer.

A very nice Mom & Pop Motel - Clean and cozy rooms. We dealt with David who was polite and helpful. Could use a little updating, loose the long dresser, update the sink/tub area, add a mini frig- to chill those Michigan whites, add a few wine glasses, a microwave to heat up those leftovers, a coffee maker to brew...

We were here the week after Labor Day. We were provided just two skimpy bath towels and there was no on-site staff to request more. The walls are very thin and, although our car was the only one in the lot at 10:00 pm, we were awakened later by loud footsteps and voices. The only thing this place has going...

The motel is in a great location to enjoy Glen Arbor, it is a short walk to everything in town. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is no breakfast, but there is a cafe less than a block away where we had a good breakfast. If you are in the area to...

We've stayed 2 years in a row. Most recently, we stayed mid-week in July, 2015. It's a cute spot. Within walking distance to several bars, restaurants, shopping and even a public beach at the end of the road. Close to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and Glen Arbor lake. Friendly service. The owner/manager gave us some good tips for local restaurants...

We stayed two nights last week (week of July 13th) . The second day we were out at Sleeping Bear Dune all day and came back to a room that was not cleaned, beds not made, trash not taken out. The coffee offered near the front desk area tasted like brown water. The second day the coffee was slightly better;...

walking distance to Leelanau Roasting company, galleries, restaurants, shops, and a grocery store!! Lake Michigan is about a two block walk. Beds were comfortable. Shower was great. I wish I had brought my coffee pot though.

We loved this little inn! It was squeaky clean and freshly painted. The beds were comfortable and the shower hot. But, the best part was walking out the door of the first floor onto grass, around the corner to shops and restaurants. Cute town near Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

We booked this place for our first night off the Badger Ferry. It was just what we wanted or our first morning on Lake Michigan. The shore at our door! The place is safe, clean, quiet and reasonable. I can't think of anything more for the price. The owner is friendly and the staff were available and helpful. Check it...

We stayed at this hotel while visiting Sleeping Bear Dunes. We felt the location was great - close to the dunes as well as downtown Glen Arbor. We also drove to Fish town which was about 20 miles away.

“Lower floor for easy access to unloading car, walking right out the door to sit in the garden/flower areas. Coffee pot outside of room but I brought my own. I took a fan just in case air went out, which it didn't!”
