Hampton Inn Lansing: More Luxury in Lansing

I knew I was staying in town a few days so I opted for a more luxurious room since I might be there for more than just sleeping. I also wanted to be able to review more hotels for VT. The second night I stayed at the Hampton Inn. The bed was more comfortable and the room more luxurious. WiFi worked well. The hot breakfast started the day off well. The desk clerk was okay but I missed Madison from the Days Inn.

Fitness Room, whirlpool, hot breakfast.

Days Inn Lansing: Improving in Lansing

Few things make me happier on VT than being able to write a tip on a place that is improving. This Days Inn has a lot of potential. Unfortunately it was owned by people who were only interested in profit and not service or quality. The motel got a lot of bad ratings. It is now under new management and they are putting some money into the motel to improve facilities. The restaurant/bar was closed for renovation, and they were painting the inside walls and doorframes to get rid of the ugly green color. My room was nice and decently cleaned. They had bought new towels and linens. Very nice pool area and cabana for the "Superstart" breakfast. The desk clerk, Madison, was very nice. The place was pretty clean. My one complaint; the guy I saw cleaning did not appear to understand English. Pretty inexpensive.

Best Western Alpine Lodge: Very Nice Hotel in Gaylord

This is a very nice hotel at a cheap price. They have nice ammenities in the rooms; cable with HBO, coffee (no refrigerator or microwave, probablt because they have a restaurant). There is a very nice indoor pool, a game room, and exercise equipment. They also have a sauna and a whirlpool in the enclosed attrium. There is a lounge on site too. Nice place to stay for the price.

Not that far from Lake Huron and Lake Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.

Microtel Inns and Suites Ann Arbor: highly recommend

Booked this hotel as not far from Detroit airport and wanted somewhere close to stay after an international flight. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean comfortable room. free phonecalls and free internet access.
Breakfast area is small but welcome to take breakfast to reception area with several couches and chairs. We found plenty of choice,cereal, bagles which could be toasted,fruit,also fruit juices tea and coffee.
Supermarket nearby if you require a snack.
We had hoped to stay here again on return to Detroit but unfortunately they had a convention on.

Easy to find, set back from the road so quiet, plenty of car parking space.

Leland Hotel (Formally the Ramada Inn): Faded Jewel

I had a great stay, The staff is very nice and user freindly, although what they can do for you is limited.

This hotel serves not only out of town guests, but also doubles a boarding house for some of the locals.

If you are coming with your buddies for a tigers game this would be a good/cheap place to stay - only about a 10 minute walk to the staudium and there are a many sports bars/pubs on they way!!

Everyone I met was pleasant and courteous, even if some of them seamed a little crazy (maybe they had not yet taken thier medication).

The basement, ground floor, 3rd and 4th floors are all but abandond - only the strong of heart need go there.

Stair Wells are dirty and covered in graffiti - again unless you want adventure - avoid ;-)

5th and 6th Floors appear to be tenants.

Grand Hotel Mackinac Island: It Really is Grand

This was fun. It was a gift from my mother after graduating with my Masters' degree. She knows I like to travel and this was the perfect gift because while I do travel a lot, I don't travel at quite this level of elegance ever. And the Grand Hotel *is* elegant, old-school elegant (it was built in 1887 and people like Mark Twain have stayed here). The whole island is like travelling back in time and this hotel definitely fits in that theme.

The rooms are comfortable, the mints they put on your pillow are FANTASTIC, the meals are wonderful (more on that in a moment), and you have to dress for dinner. I think that's cool. Coming from Southern California where everything is casual, going somewhere that required dressing for dinner I just found extremely classy and fun. They have a pool and other activities and they can provide a picnic lunch if you request it, but it's not included in the price.

What is included in the price is dinner and breakfast. Breakfast was fine. Dinner was mind-blowing. Write this down - Grand Pecan Ball. Seriously. It is amazing. The island is known for its fudge and so here is this huge thing that they bring out to you for dessert. It's a softball-size ball of ice cream rolled in pecans and sitting in a bed of Mackinac chocolate fudge. It was mind-blowing. Really.

It has the longest front porch, so they claim, and the view from there is pretty impressive. They also have an art gallery in the hotel so if you're every looking for something to do, you can wander over there (it's near the dining room) and see what exhibit they have on display.

Apple Tree Inn, Petoskey: Great hotel with the best view of Petoskey

A great place to stay. An enormous room with a great balcony overlooking the bay. Unexpected extras. like a lending library for videos and some great machines I had never seen for breakfast. Pour a cup of mixture in a machine and out comes a great Belgian waffle but then for an overseas traveller - a machine you put coffee in in a container and out comes brewed coffee. All part of another world. Staff was great and helpful.

Saw the pool at the spa - you can't miss it and a nice looking health room with a variety of machines and a lot of people looking amazingly fit on them.

Sunset Motel: Munising - On the shores of Lake Superior

Firstly the physical location of this motel right on the shores of Lake Superior is wonderful. The room is delightful with everything you need to make your stay pleasant - the staff at the reception are not only very friendly but are very helpful with advice about what to do and see in the area. I would whole heartedly recommend this motel to everyone. There is no breakfast on the premises but it is two seconds away from town.

LOCATION! The view over the lake is amazing with the geese and the ducks near the shore.

Manistee National Forest: Pine River - An extremely large campground!

If you don't mind having a primitive campsite, (meaning no restrooms or electricity), then you can camp in any national forest. The camping is free and the Manistree National forest covers a large area.

You can camp without having anyone camping next door or even 2 miles away!

Peterson Bridge Campground: Pine River- Camp beside the River

When we canoe or Kayak on the Pine River we camp at Perterson Campgound. This campground has restrooms, but not electricity.

The location of this campground is it's #1 quality. It's located on the banks of the Pine River and is also located close to several river outtfitters. All campsites are heavily wooded, which is an asset during the hot days of summer.

Fountain Point: Traditional North Country Resorts

We spent many summers coming to Fountain Point. The kids love. They can run, get away from the parents. The game room, swimming beach, paddle boats and the other kids soon dominate their time. Outside in the fresh air means they sleep well and so do you.

Established in 1889, Fountain Point is a National Historic Site family summer resort with 54 acres of manicured lawns and woodlands and nearly 1/2 mile of panoramic shoreline on Lake Leelanau, in the heart of beautiful Leelanau County, Michigan. A Hotel B&B with antique furnishings and 19 comfortably refurbished, 1-7 bedroom cottages, Fountain Point is for friends and families who want to spend quality time together in a picture-book setting with an atmosphere that has been personal and genuine for 115 years.

Top-5 amenities include:
Panoramic, lakefront setting in Leelanau County
Private cottages in a social, resort atmosphere
Sandy beach w/child-safe swim area/nightly campfire
Free breakfast, many common rooms in Victorian hotel

The Grand Hotel: Grandest Hotel in the State

The largest and most prestigious place to stay is on Mackinac Island at the Grand Hotel. A watering hole for the rich and famous since the 1880's, the Grand Hotel still sets the standard for elegance.

REDWOOD MOTOR INN: NICE, CLEAN HOTEL IN LEWISTON

The rooms are very big and spotlessly clean. Nothing fancy but reliably clean and comfortable with satelite TV and good beds. It looks "lodgy", has plaid carpeting in areas. There is a small indoor pool. They have coffee and pastries for breakfast. Its close to everything in Lewiston, which really isn't that great of a feat since it is such a small town. Very close to some nice national forest areas and great for snowmobilers.

$60

SLEEPING BEAR DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: CAMPING ON THE "WEST COAST"

The National Park offers three options for camping:

The Platte River Campground offers sites with electric hook-ups for RVs and trailers as well as walk-in sites for those who want to carry their tent off the beaten path. They have modern showers and restrooms.

D.H. DAY campground is more rustic, wooded, with vault toilets and water spigots. It is the closest to the Dune Climb, Pyramid Point, and the Scenic Drive. It is also very close to the really cute, tiny town of Glen Arbor and Historic Glen Haven. There are tent sites right on the beach of Lake Michigan, too.

There are also many backcountry camping opportunities, including locations on the unspoiled Manitou Islands. Ferries leave from Leland, MI. North Manitou ferries have only once a day service, so if you go, you better plan on spending the night!!

The DH day is most convenient to all the attractions of the park. They do not take reservations here and they are only 12 USD/night.

Platte River has electrical, many reservable, 21 USD/night.

Backcountry is unreservable, 5 USD/night and very limited.

GET A HOT SHOWER at the Empire Township Campgrounds next to the tiny airport. They charge 25 cents for every 3 minutes.

USE THE BEAUTIFUL MODERN TOILETS AND FACILITIES. Brand new in Glen Haven where the historic buildings are, 2 minutes from DH DAY. Brand spankin' new and nobody uses them.

Topinabee Pines: LP A comfortable cabin for a great price

Topinabee Pines is a very large cabin located in the northern part of Michigan's LP, about 30 miles north of Gaylord and 30 miles south of St. Ignace. Numerous lakes and natural attractions adorn the area, and though Topinabee itself is quite small, it is located centrally within upstate Michigan's primary tourist area. The cabin (or cottage) is quite large, having two bedrooms as well as a hide-a-bed sofa. The kitchen and dining room are also quite large, making for a very comfortable stay. A fire pit and BBQ complimented the already fine stay.

The cabin had the look and feel (also many of the same furnishings) of a real home. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen furnished to a degree far superior than most comparable cabins. The simple necessities of life, such as toilet paper and paper towels, were stocked in abundance and all the appliances worked. A washer and drier were a very welcome bonus, as were the pamphlets and fliers of various regional attractions. A gas station and large convenience store are located nearby.
