The rooms were clean. No breakfast but had coffee. People friendly. We grilled steaks at the motel. Picnic tables there. Could walk to the lake in back of the motel. The prices were very reasonable. Nice city. Lots of restaurants. Allowed pets for a small fee.

One nighter on the way to campsite. The room was great... in very good shape, roomy, and clean and fresh. Dorothy the hostess was very charming and helpful and the view out the back added to the charm. Very affordable, and we would stay here again the next time.

This is an inexpensive, dated motel with friendly staff. The beds weren't very nice, we couldn't find the path to the lake that others had talked about, and the open window in the bathroom let a lot of bugs into the room. The doors open right to the parking lot, and the lock didn't seem very sturdy, so I didn't... More

This motel may look old but it could not be better taken care of than it is. The people were so friendly and easy to work with. Our room was very clean, fresh and nostalgic at the same time. I reserved sight unseen and was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. A coffee pot in the room would be nice but... More

This motel has got to be the cleanest establishment I have ever stayed in! Sweet lady at the front desk. Family run. Rooms are quite large, with a large window overlooking the back property. A small bit of Lake Michigan can be seen, as well as their large, well kept yard, and trees. They have swings in back too, for... More

An overnight stop for us on our way from Copper Harbor to St. Ignace. Nice clean rooms with plenty of space. Comfortable beds. The only negative is that there are no coffee makers in the room - coffee is available after 7 am but only by walking to the office for it. Doesn't work well when you are an early... More

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...
