To put it mildly this place is a sh**hole. They advertise and charge for an indoor pool in a Michigan winter and then tell you well there is no place else you can go. The staff was totally rude. The room was dirty. I did not care for the rude signs everywhere. The breakfast buffet was a joke, they had...

First let me say, that the day time front desk lady, Laura, is wonderful! But it seemed like she was the only one who worked. The night time girl was always out in someones car, every time we left or came back she was in a different car, and we even watched her leave the property once. Had another guest...

The room was clean, but run down. Pool closed by Health Inspector, I would just remove it. Hallway area needed cleaning. Breakfast very limited. Greeter was nice, it was quite, dog welcome, and price was what you would expect to pay for the room. This is no Marriot, but if you need to catch some sleep before the road again....I...

Staying here was not a great experience. There are no maintained grounds whatsoever, the pool is closed due to health and safety violations, the AC was broken (had to change rooms), very basic breakfast. The room itself was acceptable with ok beds, a fridge and microwave, but no coffeemaker.

We had two rooms reserved for two couples and we stopped here on our way to Mackinaw Island. Something was going on because many of the hotels in Gaylord were already booked. The rooms were spacious and clean. The owner/clerk was very friendly and helpful of places to eat. The breakfast left a lot to be desired but I'm not...

Rooms were dirty. looked like no one vacuumed in over a week. Pool area was closed. Violation notice from the City was posted on the Pool door. Hallway smelled terrible. avoid this place at all cost. I will never stay at another Americas Best.

Booked my room prior to arrival. When we arrived I felt something wrong with this hotel. Entered and immediately the smell was awful. The entry was philthy and looked nothing like the professional pictures. Simon explained that no pool,closed due to health reasons. I looked down and their was a paper stating that the password for wifi was squashbutt. REALLY....

I called and made a reservation. When I got there, they couldn't find my reservation. They had a couple rooms left (during a very busy weekend) so I took one of those, but I was charged $40.00 more than I was quoted during my reservation. This place needs a lot of work. The hallway window was opened and the screen...

First if all, let me say there have been SOME improvements. The front lobby is nice, which includes a breakfast nook area, nice TV and couches and new desk. But it pretty much stops there. The pool is NOT OPEN and hasn't been for quite a while, if we understand this directly. There is a tag from the county from...
