The BW River Terrace is a nice enough hotel for what it is. A basic, simple motel with modest accommodations and some rooms overlooking a river. But that view of the river comes with a hefty price tag for such modest accommodations. So be advised as to whether or not it's worth the price.
Also, the site comes with some annoyances. Many of the prime parking spaces are reserved for boat trailers--whether they are needed or not. Consequently, parking can be a challenge if you want to park near your room entry.
And speaking of room entry, if you are on the second floor rooms (as we were) you will need to drag your luggage up and down some stairs. Be prepared.
Lastly, our room came with some quirks as well. The shower/toilet area in our room was extremely cramped, so be careful when closing the door lest you jam your toe (as I did). Moreover, the water pressure in the shower is relatively weak, and worst still the assembly connected the hot/cold piping backwards. At first, I thought there was no hot water in the shower, and only when I began to turn the faucet off did I notice hot water coming out.
All that said, I wonder if the BW River Terrace is your best bet in Cheboygan. As we toured the area we found relatively few other options. Which, in turn, allows them to charge whatever they want. less
