This is typical of a UP "Mom and Pop" motel. While it is an older property, it lacks the "sterility" of national chain properties. Larry made us feel very welcome and accommodated our two crisis response dogs. When we arrived, he took the time to tell us about the property and where the amenities were. There was a very nice...

I spent 8 nights at the Terrace Motel. No complaints at all. The room was cabin/like, which I loved. The bed was very comfortable, and there was a large flat screen TV, free wifi. There is no mini fridge or microwave in the room, but there is a community kitchen with everything you need. There is even a pool table.... More

This is your typical old school motel built in the 40's or 50's maybe. The rooms are small, walls are paneling, the bathroom had a funky layout, and it took two minutes the find the light switch. It took quite a while for the hot water to reach the shower but once it did, it was plenty hot and never... More

We stayed one night 2nd week October 2014. I asked for room with bathtub, I cannot sleep without a hot bath. Munising itself is wonderful, and Larry seemed nice. About 9:00 or 9:30pm my husband ran bathwater, he said there is no hot water, not even luke warm. I went to office, used phone in there to call, Larry came... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Amazed at how nice and friendly the owner is. Larry gave me a map and was super nice and helpful. Our room was cozy, warm, and the bed was very comfortable (better than any chain hotel I have stayed at.) Shower was hot and overall just a great time. We still have 2 nights left and... More

Loved this motel. It's clean and charming. Centrally located and well maintained. It's not the Ritz so don't go with that expectation. No microwave or fridge, so go prepared accordingly. I took my electric kettle with me for tea. You also just get soap. No shampoo or lotion. I always travel with mine so it wasn't a problem. My husband... More

The room was clean as hoped. The area was quiet as advertised. Units have some age on them but they get the job done. I'll check out other locations in the area on my next visit but would stay here again if necessary.

The only reason I'm giving this motel 2 stars is for the owner. He was very friendly. Otherwise, it was much too run down for our taste. Ice machine was broken. Door was broken. Shower ran out of hot water each night. Location is horrible (in a neighborhood - not my style!) The owner had dogs in his house next... More

My family and I had booked a room at the Terrace Motel for 2 nights in late August. I have traveled extensively, staying in high end hotels and many motels, and regardless of where I stay the most important trait I seek is cleanliness. After reviewing the reviews on this site we decided on the Terrace Motel based on the... More
