My husband and I have stayed at a few different places in Manistique, but this one is now by far our favorite. What a fantastic find. I am a clean freak and always hesitant of staying places. Star Motel is located right on US 2 and is close to everything. Every person I encountered on staff was welcoming and helpful.... More

The Star Motel will brighten your day/night when you discover what it offers. It's right on US 2 making it super easy to find. The motel is very close to Lake Michigan. It's in close proximity to a variety of dining, shopping, and sights to see. Public beaches and the East Breakwater Lighthouse are just down the road. This is... More

Based on other reviews we elected to stay at the Star Motel and were delighted we had done so. As others reported the room was spacious and spotless. It had newer carpets, paint, bathroom tub and flooring. The large back window was facing the lake but the lake view was not too good from our room. We did however see... More

It is an amazing experience to stay here. It's all about old fashioned American hospitality. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Bathroom amenities are all provided for including a hairdryer. There's a fridge, a rocking chair, a little TV with lots of channels and a comfortable bed. It is an older motel but with a homey atmosphere. They have... More

Ended up here for two nights due to a quick trip to Manistique. A few phone calls to about 5 other local places showed that Star had ridiculously inexpensive rates compared to the others, as well as being extremely hospitable on the phone. (A few of the other local places were downright rude on the phone...like I was bothering them.)... More

We have stayed at the Star Motel several times over the years, always in February. We love to drive to the U.P. to see the "frozen waterfalls." The Star Motel is located in a central area to the things we love to do. Although an older motel, it is very clean and the rooms are large. The rates are low... More

This property is a very well maintained older establishment and the only one in Manistique located on Lake Michigan. The rooms are spacious and very clean. In room refrigerators and free wifi are included in the low price which makes this a very good value. We stop here several times a year and will continue to do so as long... More

Stayed almost a week here. Best price around, allowed my two dogs to stay with me. Very old fashioned, perfect. Dogs got to run the beach and huge back yard, nothing fenced so you need to have well mannered dogs. Very comfortable room, large. Very clean. Left the back windows open to listen to the wind and water. Coffee in... More

Had a reservation and arrived around 4. No one home. After waiting ten minutes we went to the Peninsula. Much nicer property. Star may be nice, but rooms are tiny and old fashioned. Not much available in Manistique.

While traveling in the U.P. recently, we found the Star through this website. The price is great as was the area information supplied by the owners. The room was spacious, clean with unexpected amenities such as a fridge, toiletries, & hair dryer. The shower had great hot water with decent pressure. The place was quiet and even with all the...
