First of all, the location is unbelievable. The rooms are steps from the bay, and views are amazing. We went up to the UP and stayed at the Sunset Motel on the Bay for 3 nights, it was so relaxing. First of all, you can tell the owners are very serious about having a clean and presentable place to stay.... More

Super fun girl's weekend. Clean rooms with great service. Rooms all facing the bay with a long porch to enjoy the view. Staff very friendly. There is a beautiful waterfall within 2 blocks, ask at the front desk and they will give you a map of all the falls. I would diffidently stay here again.

This is a remodeled 1950's classic UP motel (they kept the knotty pine) and was a very pleasant stay. The room was very clean with each of the 16 rooms facing the bay, with a porch extending along the rooms so that folks actually sat outside their rooms and visited with other guests and watched the sunset over the bay,...

Beautiful view of the bay, and clean room with spacious bathroom! Yes, it is all very simple but you are up north - that is what we expected! We were very pleased with our three night stay here as we explored Pictured Rocks. The rooms were cleaned promptly and quickly every day. The front office staff was very resourceful; providing...

This is a nice place and I would stay here again. The Motel is right on the water, and they have a shuffleboard slab, chairs, a play area for children and I saw canoes stacked under a tree. I don't know if they let you use them or if they rent them out. The room was nice and very clean...the... More

I rented a cottage and some rooms to base a kayaking trip here recently. The combination of having both vacation homes and motel rooms was well suited to my group. The staff is extremely friendly and kind. It's location right on the water also allowed for us to launch our kayaks right from the motel which was very practical. If... More

The staff is very helpful and friendly but the rooms are out-dated. Their website claims they've spent the past few years remodeling all the rooms which I find hard to believe. We had a 2 bedroom unit with panelling every where making it feel small and dark. The bed is hard, the bathroom is ridiculously small and there's some various... More

I recently stayed at the Sunset Motel on the Bay in Munising during a family vacation, and my dad, brother, and I could not have been more pleased. The view and access to Munising Bay, Lake Superior, and area waterfalls is unmatched, and the accommodations were clean and spacious. We couldn't have asked for anything more (okay, maybe just one...

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night while visting the Munising area. We were very pleased. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the private beach and sitting outside to watch the sunset. We stayed in room 103 and it had a nice sized kitchen and was the perfect set up for 2. There are some... More

we recently stayed at this motel for 2 nights. we had the 2 bedroom suite. It had a small kitchen area, which we were able to to make breakfast and dinner here. They also offer grills with coal and utensils, making bbq easier. the host was really friendly and greeted us with lots of things to do in the area.... More
