Not a Hilton but a very clean motel. Room had WiFi, cable TV, refrigerator, microwave, and a coffe maker. We used the room to sleep then we were off to the woods. The hot shower felt amazing (no tub) Very good water. The staff was very friendly and full of information. Recommended a few restaurants that we went to and... More

Small room, rustic, like a cabin stay but one room. Place was comfortable and clean. Had a BBQ pit or wood fire cook out area. Bed was a queen, rate was very reasonable and only 1+ hours to mackinaw city.

This was our 2nd stay at Fay's and we enjoyed it as much this time as our first. There are 3 of us couples on our Harleys that go for extra long weekends up north. We like that we can park our bikes right by our doors and Fay always has old towels to dry the dew or rain off.... More

We stayed at Fay's Motel while on business. Though an older motel, it is very clean. Equipped with a comfortable bed, and the necessities, we had a nice one night stay. The rooms are small, but adequate. The owner was very nice and helpful. No complaints.

My wife and I were looking for an overnight place in Grayling so we could attend an event near there. The chain places didn't interest us but we weren't looking to stay in a dump either. We chose Fay's sight unseen due to the "Clean, Clean, Clean" motto and were not disappointed. The room had new carpet, flat screen TV... More

The room we stayed in was very clean. The furniture/decor was older but in good condition. Bed was comfortable and the linens were clean. The owner seemed very nice. We booked a room here at the last minute on a holiday weekend. The room was better then we anticipated. We will be booking here again when we can stay in... More

I had a quick overnight stay on my way further north. I was checked in by one of the co-owners who was very pleasant, helpful and informative. I truly felt like a guest. The room was homey, comfortable and clean. There were families enjoying the courtyard out back, and the fire was starting in the fire pit. It was a... More

Four of us stayed at Fay's Motel on the night of July 17th to break our journey of 15+ hours of driving north to our annual fly-in fishing trip with Air Ivanhoe in Foleyet, Ontario.

Clean, comfortable, accomodating. A very nice and affordable northern Michigan stay. For hunting and fishing it's very central. Great if you snowmobile. Keith and Sandy are very pleasant hosts. They will point you in the right direction.
