This is the fourth or fifth time we have stayed at the Birchmont during the past five years while visiting family in the area. We deliver return business here for many reasons. Negatives. The rooms are clean and bright but have a "lived in" odor which isn't overwhelming. Positives. All rooms have a front view of Lake Superior, that more... More

GLBTQ friendly is a big plus. If you are traveling through the Upper Peninsula,  they are very accommodating.  The rooms are small but there is a kitchenette.  The beds are comfortable.  There is a little bit of traffic noise but a small price to pay for the amazing view. The mattress is very comfortable. Breakfast bar is really great with... More

I stayed here to get out of hiking in the rain for a night. An ok place to stay. Clean room but well worn furniture. The owner was cool and understood that I needed to air/dry stuff out and invited me to take whatever I needed into the room to dry. Not many places do that. I have a feeling... More

My husband and I travel extensively on business, and usually stay in major chain hotels based on highway access, although we do seek out independent motels when we are on the road for pleasure. This trip I was in Marquette for NMU graduation and traveling solo. I ended up at the Birchmont pretty much because they had one of the... More

We rented the large suite and additional rooms for our son's graduation from NMU. It was GREAT: beautiful view of Superior and easy access to the path along the lake. Clean hotel, affordable, comfortable beds, nice staff... and key for us was the great charcoal/gas grill and patio that comes with the large suite; enabled us to prepare two days... More

The Birchmont is a quaint motel just across the road from great views of Lake Superior. Although the decor is more dated, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. It's a nice "homey" feeling place!

The staff and owners are gracious hosts. Our room had brand new mattresses that were every comfortable. Our room also had a fabulous view of... More

We had a wonderful stay here last fall. The owners are kind and helpful, our rooms, while not "fancy", were clean, reasonably priced, quiet and exactly what we needed. The view overlooking Lake Superior was gorgeous. There is a path across the street to walk or ride bikes along the lakeshore, and you can safely ride all the way into... More

My family and I have stayed at the Birchmont Motel for the past nine years. We love the Birchmont. The rooms have an up north feel with the perfect amount of amenities. It is nothing special so if you are looking for the Hilton accommodations, look elsewhere, you are up north enjoy the simplicity. The view of Lake Superior is... More

My immediate and extended family (12-20) has been gathering at the Birchmont for 2 weeks each summer for over 20 years now. If you are looking for an extended stay in the Marquette area that is both Family and Pet friendly, this is the place! The rooms and grounds are exceptionally clean. Yes, they do have that old "U.P. Charm".... More
