The view and lake access are the only awesome things about this hotel. The rooms are clean, but haven't been updated since the 60', and I think that includes the mattresses! I have to duck to shower and I'm 5'3"! My husband had to "take a knee" to wash his hair. The bath towels are about 2x3 feet. Walls are... More

We like it there because when you open the back door you walk three steps and you're feet are in the sand and lake Michigan is right there in front of you. Beautiful sunsets! You can walk to the pier check out the light houses, watch the fisherman fish the pier. The boat launch is right across the street. There... More

The view from this motel is wonderful - just feet from Lake Michigan. You walk out your back door directly onto soft sand, across a small park road, and back onto the sand. There is are slides and swings for the kids, and two lighthouses in view. Unfortunately, the rooms are horrible. The beds are (not kidding) at least 30... More

We just spent one night at this motel on our drive down the coast. Can't add much to the other reviews cuz they are all pretty good. It's like going back in time and you can't beat the price or the location. The only problems we had with our room was the carpet smells from years of pet urine and... More

The only motel in Manistee located right on Lake Michigan......."nostalgic" motor-inn type motel. The room I stayed in (#19) was clean and comfortable......nothing spectacular but friendly staff, close proximity to beach and fantastic view (especially the sunset) made my stay enjoyable. Beach is just a short walk out the back door.......there are also picnic tables and chairs facing the beach... More

This is nothing more than a room to sleep in but it is right across from a beautiful beach. Very affordable but frankly I would rather pay more and have had some additional amenities such as a kleenex in the room, a plug in the bathroom and a shower I that was above my shoulders. That being said, it is... More

If you are looking for an awesome place for kids to have direct access to a beautiful beach, playgrounds, basketball court, tennis courts and soon to be opened concession stand this is your place. The room décor harkens back to the Up North motels my family frequented back in the 60's and 70's. So I had the nostalgia vibe going,... More

First, this is not a b&b, it us a motel. The rooms are spacious, 2 double beds with plenty of room. The TV is tiny but we didn't come for TV. The rooms are outdated, its a motel. There is no AC at least when we stayed but it wasn't needed as the weather was mid 80s during the day... More
