Before beginning this review, I gave it many hours of thought, read the other reviews and pondered Northern Michigan's culture. I find this a difficult review to write so let me premise it by saying that I am an adventurer. I travel a lot for my sports. I have spent a good deal of time is very isolated places such...

Have been in this area many times snowmobiling and camping first time staying at Fay's. The room was very clean and the owner was very friendly and informative on the snow and trails as we were preparing to ride on. Reasonable and comfortable easy access to trails would stay here again after a long day of riding.

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...

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....

We stayed at Fay's while at a wedding in town. It was an awesome place. Clean and lots of perks. Bbq grills, fire pit. nice beds. Would stay again! Kitchen with all the perks. Loved it! Next time will bring the grandkids. They would love it!

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...

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...

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...
