We found the Northshore Motel by searching tripadvisor and were very pleased. It was an extremely clean room especially for the price. Be sure to take a stroll on the boardwalk. Also went to winetasting at the Mackinaw Trails and enjoyed it.

This motel is clean, comfortable and up to date. The owners aim to please and you won't go wrong staying here. Great view of the lake and comfortable beds. We would definitely stay here again we can strongly recommend Northshore Motel.

Our first impression was that this property is well cared for. Upon looking at the room it was clear that the management really cared about the customer. The room was very clean and set up with just the right items for a one night stay. The view was beautiful. We were pleased to find a great walking path right across... More

I have been traveling through and staying in Manistique for years and have never been satisfied with the quality of available motel rooms. Some are over priced, a few are less than clean and a couple are both. I ended up at the Northshore since one of the places I typically stay in (a combo of over priced and less... More

While planning a trip through the UP I wanted to stop in the area to visit the big spring, however I couldn't find a hotel that fit the schedule. I normally stay away from the little motels however after reading all the TA reviews I figured I'd give it a try, after all thats what TA is for isn't it?... More

My wife and I were passing through the UP on the way to Wisconsin, and picked Manistique as a place to stop for the night. My wife picked the Northshore via Tripadvisor and we would like to echo the positive reviews. Our room was one of 12, off the heavy-trafficked area, but close enough to a local supermarket to pick...

Part of traveling up north must include a stay at a "mom and pop" hotel, and this is one of the best by far! We spent one night and rented two rooms. The rooms were nicely decorated using a different theme. Ours was the smallest, very clean and cozy. Each room had a mini fridge, coffee pot, and flat screen... More

My wife and I stayed here one night during our recent "tour" of the Upper Peninsula. We were tired of the sterile, high-priced chain hotels and decided to pull in here. And we're glad we did! The room was spotless and the owners were really nice and helpful. They had bacon-egg-and-cheese toast for breakfast - awesome! The view is spectacular... More

Stayed here one night last week. This is a "Mom and Pop" type motel, but do not let that stop you from staying. Our room was recently updated and spotlessly clean, had a very comfortable pillow-top bed, good shower, nice amenities, and beautiful view of the lake. Owners are friendly and helpful with attractions and restaurant suggestions, but never intrusive.... More

We stayed one night. Price was right, the room was clean and the owners really are invested in this place. It was a mom and pop place with a real personal touch. You could tell they have poured a lot of work into this place.
