Really like this hotel. Location is great. Nice amenities. Close to Wal-Mart and Meijers. Lots of restaurants nearby. Rallies sports bar is a good one. Centrally located to all the quaint little towns My Gilead, Kenton and Marysville.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 October 2016

This was my first visit to this property since the motel was a Super 8, many years ago. The Best Western rate was just too high.

Thank you so much for the great comments. I will discuss with my staff about the importance of letting the guests know the times of breakfast. Laurie Creighton

Decent place for an overnite. Breakfast, which was advertised on their sign as better than average wasn't; in fact at 7:30AM all that was left was the typical pastries and cereal plus some eggs. Rooms and hallways were OK, definitely not new. Hot tub, which I asked about, was basically a large hot bath with no appreciable agitation.

Will be back to stay here again. Great breakfast friendly staff. Loved spa. Close to restaurants and airport if you are traveling. We're leaving early for travel before breakfast setup staff offered us muffins and fresh fruit for our travels.

This place had a nice bed, the shower lacked pressure and was hard to regulate the hot and cold. Also no snacks but they did have TWO soda machines. Desk clerk on check-in was semi helpful. The entrance, last time we were there we had to wade through puddles over our shoes and this time we had to be very...

I stayed in this hotel for one night during my sons state robotics tournament in Marion. The hotel was one of the cleanest smelling hotels I have every stayed at. The king size bed was comfortable. There was plenty of hot water for showers. It was in a perfect location walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants. Staff very personable...

Driving from the Virginia coast to Michigan I needed to stop. It was a little more than I would usually spend but well worth it. the room was clean and very comfortable. It is convenient to US 23. Will stop there again if opportunity presents itself.
