Despite being right on US 2 and directly across from Lake Michigan, the motel was very quiet. The rooms have been recently updated and were very comfortable. You can't find a better value for your money.

A very clean, nice place in Manistique with pleasant and responsive management. We stayed here one night on our 'round the lake trip. Not very fancy but certainly comfortable and with reasonable rates.

The room and bath were very clean, and the bed was comfortable. Room had small fridge and a flat screen tv. Owners are nice and frienldy. I stay here once or twice a year on business. It is not fancy, but good clean, comfortable accomodations - and the rates are great.

We travel several times a year through the U.P. and have stayed many times in Manistique. This was the first time ever staing at the NorthShore. This will now be the only place we will stay. This hotel is very reasonable, clean, quiet, comfortable and cozy. The rooms are themed. We had the Lighthouse room. If I had any complaint... More

Spent the night at the Northshore Motel in Manistique, MI. What a wonderful experience. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating. The room was large and comfortable. We were visiting lighthouses in the area, so they graciously moved us to the room with a lighthouse motif to complete our experience. We wish the weather was better that we could sit outside,...

It's a Wonderful "Mom and Pop" Motel The Owners are extremely pleasant and helpful. You park right in front of your room, which I really like. We stayed in room 7 which was decorated w/ photos of the area waterfalls. Had 2 Queens and a twin set up like a day bed. Just beautiful through out. Very clean and comfortable.... More

We enjoyed our room very much. It is so convenient to have the car close. Everything was spotless and fresh. The big lake is right across the road. They said they are remodeling and we didn't think it needed it! I would highly recommend this and will stay again for sure.

My husband and I were on a road trip through the UP Michigan and stayed one night in this motel. We were very pleased with the view of Lake Michigan. We also enjoyed crossing the street to walk on the path by the lake. There were tables and benches at the motel to sit outside and enjoy the view with... More

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
