"#1 it is clean! Price for two adults was $150 per night for 2 modern, spacious, tastefully decorated cottage rooms. Across the street is one of several City Parks offering a playground, swimming and a splash park. Several restaurants including fast food are within 1/2 mile. We really enjoyed Nick's Diner. We felt safe and the surrounding area is clean. Nice central location for Thunder Bay activities."

"The suite was the BEST place to stay for our July family vacation. The new room decor is inviting and beachy, everyone was friendly and helpful, and the beds were very comfortable. Wish we could have stayed even longer!

"I travel around the state for work in the summer time. Since the pandemic has started, 40 Winks was the best place I've stayed. From the first instant you are there, you know they care about your health and well being. They communicate well with their customers and make you feel at ease."

"Always my go to spot when visiting my family and friends"

"The new extended stay rooms are amazing! So spacious, comfortable, and beautiful. Walking distance from two of the best parks and beaches in town, great food trucks, and Michigan's longest running mini golf course. Only a mile walk from downtown Alpena, this is such a great place to stay and enjoy Alpena Michigan. :)"
