Very clean room, comfortable beds and friendly staff made our stay very enjoyable. Property is on the lake, with views out the back window. Quiet location. Everything was great. Would stay here again each and every time we are in the area.

We stayed in room 11 next to the lobby (2 queen beds). It was spacious, had a small fridge, was quiet, drive up and park right in front of your room and a beautiful view of Lake Michigan from the room. The owner was friendly. The wifi connection was fast! The hotel is close to restaurants and the boardwalk. You... More

What a treasure! We just wanted a cheap night's sleep but ended up experiencing a sweet little blast from the past. It was cheap but we had a huge room with comfy beds and it was completely retro fitted - unintentionally! The blonde woodwork, sitting chairs, drapes, fixtures - as if preserved from 1950! But we also had wifi and... More

The Star motel is a good place to stay when you just need a place to rest your head and get a good night sleep. No continental breakfast, old tube tv, no pool, no computer room. But, you get a great price, friendly staff, very clean room, and the beds were comfortable. I paid $61 with tax. The Comfort Inn... More

Have stayed here twice when traveling across the UP. Very clean motel, reasonable price, very nice owners. Will arrange for late night arrival when they are asleep. Beds are clean, mattress is firm and comfortable. 1960s vibe feels just like the UP should feel.

The motel was super clean, smoke free and very reasonably priced. The beds were comfortable and it has wifi. We were here with our 9 year old daughter and we would definitely stay here again. It's right on Lake Michigan but unfortunately it was foggy so we couldn't enjoy the view. Did I say that it was super clean? :)

Room was old fashioned but every thing was very clean and maintained. I feel this place was cleaner then a lot of upscale hotels I've stayed in... I will be booking here again on the next vacation around here. Also staff was nice enough to stash a key in a spot for our late arrival since they are not open... More

I found this motel in the online yellow pages. Inexpensive, clean, on Lake Michigan. I do not intend on spending my time in the room when I travel. Good place to sleep. Coffee is offered in the lobby in the morning. Internet access in room.

My wife and I have been here twice ... two different summers while riding around Lake Michigan, meaning that we thought highly enough of the place that we returned. It has the 1960's nostalgia factor down pat, but more important, it's very clean - none of that 1960's musty smell. The bed was firm and felt perfect. The motel, and... More

By far the cleanest motel room I have ever stayed in - ever!! Very sadly, we lost my grandmother in December 2014 and had to travel to Manistique for her funeral. We booked over 50% of the rooms at Star. From the 1st phone call making the reservations from leaving almost a week later - best experience ever - even... More
