We enjoyed our stay here! The view is spectacular!! Beautiful sunrises and moonrises, the stars, all without leaving your bed!!!!The room has everything you need and the breakfast is decent. We would stay here again. Much better and cheaper than the chain motels!!!!!!!

This was quite simply the most horrible hotel I have ever stayed in. I have absolutely no idea who has written the good reviews, they must have been written by the owners or the staff themselves. Whilst it overlooks Lake Superior, it is next to the major highway to Marquette and the traffic noise is shocking, making sleep impossible. To... More

There is nothing not to like about this motel. The lawns and gardens are well tended. The rooms large, clean and well decorated. The "comment book" in our room was filled with tales of other travelers who found (or more often returned) to this motel. Nary a negative comment in our book (the Starry, Starry Nights room). Breakfast was available... More

We stayed two nights and absolutely loved this place. My brother & family had a room in the larger building (room 33 or 34, I think) and my husband and I stayed in the smaller building (room 51). Our room was very clean, bright with huge opening windows that looked out on the lake. The bed was very comfy &... More

It was a quiet place despite being on the highway. The rooms were nice. The fridge was a bonus. We were traveling cross country so we had things we needed to keep cold. The little freezer door was broke so that was a bummer. The bed was great. The walls were thin. We were tired enough it did not matter.... More

We just needed a bed for the night while traveling across the U.P. Many of the hotels were already booked for the night, so we were happy to find the Birchmont. The room had a front deck with a beautiful view overlooking Lake Superior. The grounds were well maintained, but the room needed updates. Beds very comfortable. I think the... 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
