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...

I generally stay in Escanaba or Manistique when travelling to lower Michigan from the Duluth area, and this time I decided to look at tripadvisor reviews before choosing. What won me over was the fact that Lake Michigan was just a brief walk from my room which many of the other motels in the area aren't. Take note, however, that... More

If you are looking for a place to sleep with nothing fancy, but comfortable, clean and reasonably priced, you can't go wrong with the Star Motel. Easy to find and close to the downtown area. View of Lake Michigan and free internet access.

This place is about as Yooper as they come--and I mean that as a compliment. The mid-century decor is so dated it's contemporary (the rocking chairs alone would fetch a few hundred dollars apiece in a West Elm catalogue), the rates are as low as they get these days, and the setting is stunning, without being marred by the condos,...

The guy who checked us in was very friendly. The rooms were exceptionally clean, large, beds comfortable, and internet access. Close to town, casino, and the boardwalk. You cannot beat this value! Picnic tables available, view to Lake Michigan or chairs out front to watch traffic. The other guests said they have stayed there for several years. Coffee in the... More

We stayed here based on other reviews on Tripadvisor. There are lots of these old fashioned motor courts in the area and they all look the same. The lady at check in was quite crotchety and we didn't exactly feel welcomed. We would have left but we were tired from driving all day so we bit the bullet. Plus the... More
