I stayed at this motel last summer. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The view was gorgeous. The room was great, very clean, with satellite TV and a refrigerator and microwave and full bath. I only stayed one night, but will certainly stay longer next chance I get!

I have traveled weekly for over 20 years. At 50 weeks x 20 years, Conservatively, I have stayed in at least 1000 hotel rooms. And, this hotel was, hands-down, the most disgusting hotel room I have ever stayed in. The most egregious offense were the bed bugs. My wife was literally covered in bed bug bites, we lost count at...

The folks at the Erin are always friendly, kind and helpful. The owner has loaned me his vehicle, after mine went on the ferry; he has made laundry services available to me. He started a bonfire on the well-groomed beach, for my friends and I to enjoy after dark. Always pleasant and clean, pet-friendly and close to everything!

I am on the ferry heading back from the island. Had a terrific stay at the Erin. The people there are terrific and were very accommodating to special requests. The up north, laid back atmosphere was terrific but the view of the lake was down right Spectacular! The bed was comfy and flat screen tv was not used but available....

Great location, great views on Lake Michigan side, accepts pets (wonderful!), but in need of many updates and could be cleaner. The bedding, furniture, bathroom - all need to be modernized. We stayed in June 2015 and they have upgraded to flat panel TVs and have wifi. I was pleased to have a small refrigerator and microwave, but you just...

The biggest problem I have with this motel is the amount of neglect. It is located in a beautiful place, right in town, and walking distance to food and activities. It could be great with some care and up-keeping. The window screens are patched, one window was non-functional leading to lack of air circulation. There were bugs throughout the room-Oh...

We love the Erin! It is a motel not a hotel!!!! Karen does a great job with helping you with anything you need. Come early, stay late they are overly accomodating.The rooms are spacious with picnic tables outside your door. You are right on the lake, and can watch the ferry come and go. You can walk most everywhere from...

We stayed at Erin Motel several times, primeraly because is the only Hotel/Motel that accepts pets. The location is great and convinient. We stayed in room on a Lake side, with a georgous morning sunrise. The truth is that Roy (the owner) should be taking care of this place little bit better. The furniture is kind of old and unpolished....

We arrived in the morning expecting to store our luggage, and were surprisingly offered the room to check in. We found no indication of bed bugs. The theme of this hotel is deferred maintenance. From the soft goods, to the furniture, window screens, door lock, etc...it all needs attention. We asked for lawn chairs to sit outside and told there...

When I stayed at the Erin Motel it was quite adequate. Roy let us use a freezer in the office area which was a nice gesture. Room was clean, and not noisy on the street side. We rented the Harbor House from Roy the next year.
