We walked in and the foot stool was stained, the bed had a hole in it, the shower/bath do not work, the refrigerator was broke (door fell off and did not turn on), there were bugs all over. The walls were falling apart and the floor didn't even go...

If anyone ever goes to Petosky Mi STAY AWAY FROM ECONO LODGE SOUTH! Here's my review... This is the worst hotel we've ever stayed in. Had to stay one night. The first room we got had a leaky running toilet, water all over the floor, condensation everywhere. The second room we had to switch to was absolutely dusty and filth...

This old, worn-out motel south of the beautiful resort town of Petoskey, needs top to bottom renovations. Worn out carpeting, old, chipped & scratched furniture, peeling wallpaper, stains on walls & ceiling, & poor lighting basically describe what $94/night will get you during the peak tourist summer season here. It is near the Odawa Casino, a Meijers, and several restaurants,...

We booked a room for the Charlevoix Marathon June 24-25, 2016. Last year we had to stay almost 50 miles away as you can't get near Charlevoix on race weekend. This year we booked the Econolodge early, and it was a no refund rate. We knew we were unable to compete two weeks in advance, so I called Hotels.com on...

There was dirt between the mattress and the base. I used my own pillows, which I carry in case we get into an iffy place. The tub bottom...

This place was gross and uncomfortable. Such a disappointment for a Choice Hotel property. Flies were buzzing around the room all night and there were spider webs in every corner of the room. Wallpaper was coming off of the wall and everything had stains. The sheets were worn and stained and it was disturbing to even touch the blankets. Everything...

room needs to be updated with new wallpaper, new lamps with outlets for electronic gadgets, linen, blankets, and windows that open so room does not smell as much. Landscape the outside and fix screens, doors ETC. Great location. Fix it up!

We spent the night here on Sept 4 and we will not go back. The first room they assigned us had a wet floor from window to bed and the carpeting smelled musty. I asked for a new room and it was dry but had huge cobweb in room on ceiling. Less then an hour after we moved, they had...
