The Northshore Motel is an well maintained old-school classic park-in-front-of-your-door roadside motel on the northern shore of Lake Michigan in Manistique, MI. The owners were very helpful and the staff very accommodating to our group's scheduling needs. The rooms were not modern but were clean, simple, quaint, and met our needs. If you're looking for a one night stay in... More

I spent a night at the Northshore Motel on my way across the U.P. to Wisconsin. Based on previous TripAdvisor reviews, I felt confident this was my kind of place. The reviews were not wrong, as I had a great nights sleep and an enjoyable visit to Manistique. The first thing that is apparent is the overall cleanliness of the... More

My 1st time at the Northshore. I felt that $75 for this hotel room was $15 too high, but considering the late summer weather, and the condition of the room, I'd say that $75 was a fair price. I'd rather pay a little more for clean, and good condition. I stayed in Room 12 which had two double beds. FLAT... More

It has been years since I have stayed in a "mom and pop" motel and am very impressed with the Northshore. Absolutely the cleanest place I have ever stayed. Price was reasonable and it was across from the lake. They were full, so we had to take a smaller room, but not a problem, as it met our one night... More

We don't usually stay at motels but we booked this one due to the reviews on Tripadvisor. It was clean and comfortable. Bed was nice and pillows were great. It was definitely clean as a whistle. I am a light sleeper and listened to traffic noise all night. There is a very nice walking path right across the street so... More

I'm usually not too keen on roadside motels, but this one is a gem. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were impeccably clean. I would highly recommend this place as THE place to stay while in Manistique.

From the outside, it looks like any other motel, but inside, very clean, well kept, nicely decorated. The owners have put in a lot of work, and it shows! Lots of handmade notes to tell you where things are and how to use them, and they even let us borrow their corkscrew and keep it for the night. Good stop... More

We enjoy the smaller Mom and Pop establishments. This one was better than average. Clean rustic decor. Directly across from boardwalk for great early morning walk. Friendly staff. Great for final stay on a weeks vacation. Would stay again.

Very clean. All rooms have unobstructed view of Lake Michigan across the road. Bike/walking trail along lakeshore also right across road. Excellent wifi. Run by courteous couple. Only reason it's a 4 and not a 5 is the actual layout which is of the old style. But, as they say on their website, they are what they are. Through hard... More

Stayed in late August 2014 and here is my assessment of the hotel: Location: Very good - next to the main highway through town and within a mile of several restaurants. Cleanliness: Excellent Room: Very good - given that it's an old motor lodge that's been updated somewhat Staff: Very good - helpful and friendly Comments: 1. No free breakfast... More
