My wife and I stayed here for four nights on a family trip. The motel doesn't look like much from the road. But it is clean, comfortable enough, and a great vale. The people are friendly too. The room was large and included a small desk, sitting area and a mini fridge. And it was a bargain not bad at... More

Very clean and well-kept property. Friendly staff. Coffee in the lobby, but not in the room. Our room was roomy and very comfortable. This was the cleanest and least expensive place we stayed at our our trip around the UP. Though the hotel is on US-2, the road noise was minimal. Nice view of Lake Michigan out the back window,...

We stayed in room 15 with two queen beds. The room was very clean as was the office and grounds. The motel has been in the same family for generations and the pride of ownership is everywhere. There was an in-room fridge and free wi-fi. We didn't bring our dogs but might consider it next time as we saw a... More

We traveled through Manistique on our way across the UP and I'm so glad that I gave this place a chance (thanks, TA reviews!) As a self-described hotel snob, I was a little wary of the dated mom-and-pop places but this place fit our needs perfectly. What a steal for the rate! $60-something + tax for a night! This place...

We stayed one night at the Star Motel while visiting Kitchitikipi (the big spring). As others have stated, it was a real throw back so if you are expecting modern day luxury, this wouldn't fit the bill. However it was super clean, extremely well kept on the inside (outside needed a little work but they were working f on it... More

Traveling with my husband and another couple, we simply needed a clean and accommodating place to stay in Manistique for one night, as we headed across the UP. The Star Motel worked out very well for us. We had 2 rooms reserved (rooms 5 & 6) that each had one queen bed. Room 6 was spacious, clean, retro type furniture,... More

Very clean and well maintained. Definitely a "mom and pop" establishment with a throwback feel. No real water view from our room but a short walk to a small and nice sandy beach. Stayed as a family with our 3 small kids and dog. It was perfect for us. Excellent rates compared to the nearby franchise motels.

This is a little older motel but owner appeared to be very nice, room was very clean and very roomy! Not like more modern restrooms with the sink and mirror outside of restroom. There was a small stain on carpet, but looked more like a burn. Have an ice machine in the office. We had a room with 2 queens.... More

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
