The Midwest is a great place to visit for a family holiday or short getaway. It’s known for its pretty natural scenery and an abundance of historic churches and art galleries — but there are plenty of hidden gems for you to find in the area.
Cities such as Grand Forks, Duluth, and Lansing are great places to escape the crowds of the main tourist destinations. The best places to stay in cities like these are inns, which often don’t carry the price tag of luxury hotels and suites, but still offer great facilities and perks such as Wi-Fi and a complimentary breakfast.
Here are some ideas for the best Inns in some of the lesser-known towns in the Midwest.
Sleep Inn & Suites In Grand Forks
This property is one of the better rated inns in Grand Forks, and with good merit. For travellers with a budget of under $100 a night, you’ll receive a warm breakfast, a clean room, and free parking space. The Sleep Inn is perfect for families or a couple on a road trip.
While in Grand Forks, you can explore one of the many beautiful attractions, such as the Greater Grand Forks Greenway, St Michael’s Church, or the King’s Walk Golf Course.
Days Inn In Duluth
The Days Inn Duluth is the inn you’ve been searching for in Duluth. With comfortable rooms going for under $100, you’ll be able to unwind in your downtime after a fun day of sightseeing or visiting friends and family.
In Duluth, set your sights on visiting the Great Lakes Aquarium and in winter, the Spirit Mountain ski resort. If you visit in the right season, you should also take a ride somewhere beautiful, beginning at the North Shore Scenic Railroad.
Holiday Inn Express & Suites In Novi
The Holiday Inn Express & Suites is another great choice in Novi. Choose between the basic rooms or pay a bit extra to secure a suite with a whirlpool for extra comfort. For a reasonable price, you also get breakfast included, which will save you from searching for your own and wasting precious holiday time.
Spend your time in Novi visiting the Maybury State Park, the West Bloomfield Trail and the Meadowbrook Country Club.
Comfort Inn In Lansing
The Comfort Inn is one of the best mid-range hotels in Lansing because of its value for money and close location to the Delta Township Mall. At under $100 dollars a night, you can still stay on a budget while having a decent hotel room.
Use this as your base while you explore the city’s art galleries and to come back to after trips to the surrounding wineries or breweries.
Quality Inn In Troy
The Quality Inn in Troy is the perfect mid-range accommodation to stay in while visiting Troy. This inn is roughly 9 miles from the popular Detroit Zoo, and some rooms even offer whirlpool bath tubs for a slightly higher price. There’s a lot to see in the area apart from the zoo. Make sure to also check out the Fraser Ice Arena and the Detroit Institute of Art.
