My husband and I had tickets to go to a concert at Island Resort & Casino. We weren't able to stay onsite, so I looked in Escanaba. The reviews that I read made me feel comfortable booking. I wasn't disappointed. This is a basic no frills motel, but it's comfortable, cozy and most important clean! The bed was comfortable and... More

This older strip motel with parking at the front door is clean with a very friendly staff. A small fridge & older TV are in the room with good WiFi. Plenty of parking with restaurants ranging from fast food to steak houses with some just a short walk away. A basic breakfast is provided daily.

We have stay at the Hiawatha Motel a number of times from to 70's to present. The Old has age in time. But is still a good place to stay. Each time we come we stay for about a week at a time. I like the staff and the location very well. It close to downtown and a great number... More

I've stayed their multiple times, and before this last time, the rooms were in poor condition. Their was a bad odor and the rooms weren't as clean as they could be. But this time, the rooms were in excellent condition. The man who was behind the desk informed me that they just bought the place a little over 2 weeks... More

Great little place. Very clean. It is certainly dated but a nice little place with a great location in town at a good price. They are pet friendly. It's an easy and very pleasant walk to the beautiful lake front park and light house.

Clean, comfy, basic mom/pop type place, excellent value (under $70 total for 2 people) especially with free casino package for very nice Island Resort & Casino located about 10 miles west. Good location for daytrips around area, Escanaba is a nice town. We stayed during July 2013,and will definitely stay again when we are back in the area!

Usually don't make a stop on my way to my hometown, but circumstances called for it this time. I asked a long time friend for a recommendation (she lives in Escanaba) & was told about the Hiawatha. It may need some updating but it was clean, bed was comfy,staff was very friendly and I got a great night's sleep. I... More

I had to catch a 6:30 AM flight out of Esky on a winter morning. It was just me and I stayed there simply because I didn't want to drive to Esky that morning. I needed a clean room to spend a few hours the night before. Sure, it is an older place and does not have fancy décor, but... More
