I just left this place a few hours ago within in a span of two years when I first started our company in the UP this hotel had a different owner when I first stayed there the owner was very friendly and professional so I made it my home away from home until now. The new owners for some reason... More

Stayed here one night on our way to Marquette. We were very happy with the room. The wifi was great and kept connected during our visit. There are plenty of restaurants near by and within walking distance. We felt very safe here and encountered no problems. We just needed a place to sleep so it fit the bill.

We read the reviews of this motel, that it was being remodeled and renovated. Well, the carpet was new as was the mattress. Unfortunately that was it. The room smelled old and funky. The mattress, although new, was so very uncomfortable; extremely hard and we tossed and turned all night. I was very tired by the time we got up... More

I needed a clean place to stay for a quick overnight trip before traveling further north. This was the perfect place. I was greeted warmly at check-in and directed to my room. The room itself was basic, but very clean. The bathroom looked recently updated, and I enjoyed the flatscreen TV I was able to watch. I had a good... More

At first I was not impressed because the outside didn't look too tidy. When we checked in the owner was very friendly and professional. I had questions about seeing lighthouses and he brought up a great website for me to see. The room was very clean and also had a fridge and microwave. The wifi was very adequate. The bed... More

Big, comfortable room, good AC/heat, plenty of towels, friendly staff. Would stay again if I'm in the area. Free WiFi. Coffee and donuts. We could park right in front of the door which was very convenient.

Passing through Escanaba on my way to Marquette, MI, about 2 a.m. I knew I couldn't make the last hour drive. I was worried this motel would be like the last I'd stayed in, in Indiana, but I was pleasantly surprised to be treated like a daughter by the desk worker (even after waking him up, lol) and even more...

My wife and I spent one night at the Hiawatha during our drive across the UP. It was an excellent place to stay, and we would definitely stop there again. The room (especially the bed) was very comfortable. It looked and felt like the room had been re-carpeted fairly recently. The amenities including cable TV and free WiFi were very... More

The place I typically stay at in Escanaba raised prices, so I decided to try something different. This family run motel is apparently under new ownership and I was pleased. It isn't great looking from the street, but it was well worth the very reasonable price. The room was clean, the pillows actually worked, I did not hear the street... More
