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.

Spent two nights here while visiting local attractions. Owners are lovely people and very helpful. Our room was a nice size, very clean, and comfortable. Would recommend this as the perfect place to stay.

I stayed here for a night while traveling the U.P. It was very clean and the room was large with a table & chairs. Also had a fridge & coffee maker. The beds were comfy and we had a flat screen tv. The Manistique boardwalk is right across the street. There are some shops & restaurants nearby. We would stay... More

I found this little gem on TripAdvisor- I read the reviews and decided to go with it. I can honestly say- it's rated #1 in Manistique for just that reason! It is an awesome place- the owners are friendly and helpful- the room we stayed in had 2 queen beds and a daybed, table, flat screen TV, mini fridge and... More

The reviews are right. If you are looking for a CLEAN room, comfortable bed and gracious hosts do yourself a favor and stay at the Northshore. A great nights sleep. Will stay here anytime we visit the Upper Peninsula.

Actually, you need to cross the road to get to the lake but it is an unobstructed view and there is a jogging trail and beach. I definitely plan to stay here again.

The title says it all. Large comfy bed, plump pillows!, cute little table and chairs to sit and watch the sun come up. Had to turn the heat on as it turned nippy at night. Lots of hot water, but you have to wait a few seconds. Nice flat screen TV on the wall. Good WI fi reception. The whole... More

This motel has themed rooms, we chose the American Indian one for one night. Very cosy with a lovely bedspread quilt on the bed. Enjoyed the shower in the bathroom, very good water pressure and temperature. Room heating was good as we turned it up when we went in and it took no time at all to be warm. Simple... More

This is an older local motel, but the rooms have been freshened up somewhat. The room and bathroom were both very clean. Bed was comfortable. Had a small fridge and a flat screen TV. Owners very friendly and helpful. I have stayed at both of the "chain" hotels in Manistique in the past, and overall the Northshore is MUCH better... More

We had a one night stay in Manistique on our way to a college reunion and chose this small, kind of old-fashioned quintessential motel across the road from Lake Michigan. Nice view. Managers (owners?) were a very nice couple who were helpful when the power went out due to a blown transformer down the road.
