4/10 Fair

A disappointing stay.
We had stayed at this motel several times before in the past year and had a nice rooms. This stay was not !! The entrance door was filthy, the room had an Odor musty, old filthy filthy carpet. Odor from the a/c unit . The Mattress was old uncomfortable , sloped down on one side. The pillows were stained, flat and just old. Screws on the wall but, no pictures. The bathroom, has rust around the door frame and caulk in the tub. The vent is filthy. The microwave was dirty with food on the inside of the door. We felt like we were in a storage room thorn together for costumer at the last minute.

Okay 2 star location
The best feature of the motel is the low cost. The mattress was passable, but bring your own pillow if possible. Have low expectations and you will be satisfied. I saw no evidence of the claimed continental breakfast.

Motel was fine for an inexpensive 1 night stay. Not fancy by any means, but seemed clean, and location very convenient to downtown Gaylord. The mattress and pillows were not great quality. I did like that rooms have a mini-fridge (used it) and microwave (did not use this trip).

Quiet and clean
At the turn-in from the street to the parking area, the sign says "squeaky clean" -- and it was. Water pressure in the shower was also good. From check-in Saturday to check-out Monday morning, the room was quiet.

6/10 Good

Stayed 2 nights at this property. This is an older motel located within 2 blocks of downtown Gaylord. Dining and shopping are easily accessible. My room appeared to be recently renovated and very clean. Breakfast is nothing more than coffee, cereal and bagels. Only one step above nothing at all. For the price, a decent place to stay for 1 or 2 nights.

6/10 Good

I have a difficult time understanding an Indian accent. Even worse when person is behind glass and difficult to even hear. No breakfast until 7am is unacceptable. Many people staying here are working. Not really a vacation type hotel. Many will leave before 7am. Maybe that is done intentionally to save a little food. Doesn’t seem like it would take much effort to put out a continental breakfast at 6am. Thin walls. Easy to hear neighbors.

10/10 Exceptional

Front staff on check in was kind and even made a joke when i said it was just me. Her reply was "so three then, me,myself and i?" I thought that was super cute. Walking sistamce to downtown where there was music, food and stores. I asked for a 2nd story room furthest from the busy road and thats exactlt what i got, so that was perfect! Its a dated building, but the room was pleasant and clean and the price was perfect.
