You can't go wrong here !! The owners here have hospitality figured out very nicely. We wanted advice on which waterfalls to see as we passed through the area. He coached us on where to go, both on the way to the motel and as we left for home. Lovely individual cabins, pleasant grounds, and a private access to Lake... More

This quaint old place is on the main road just east of the Porcupine Mountains on the way into Ontonagon. This hotel is an extreme value. There is a beautiful front lawn, with chairs, tables, porch swings, a fire circle. Across the highway, there is a short walk to a private beach, where the sunset, stars, and sunrise are yours...

We enjoyed our stay at the Sunshine Motel. The owners were super friendly. I loved that it was pet friendly, which is hard to come by and the rates very reasonable. The grounds are well kept and super cute with a communal fire pit and lounging chairs. The rooms were smaller, but they were well equipped with what you needed... More

I have stayed at the Sunshine Motel 10 years ago when I found it was a pet friendly motel. I came back this last weekend to find a wonderfully quiet clean and comfortable cabin to spend a long weekend enjoying. The leaf color did not cooperate but I had a wonderful time. The weather was beautiful. the cabin had all... More

Great check-in with friendly service and helpful information about the area attractions, even beyond the Porcupine Mountains. Lovely private beach access across the street for any time of day, but especially for sunrises and sunsets. Clean accommodations, functional basic motel features such as shower/tub combo, mini frig and microwave, coffee maker, TV...the bed in our room could probably use a... More

The hosts are very friendly and welcoming, offered us a map of the area and suggestions of local restaurants. We spent three nights here (Sept. 12-14, 2015). Our room was clean and cutely decorated in an Up North motif,... More

Very friendly folks who go out of their way for the guests. The room was clean and pleasant. They even supplied us with towels, soap and water to wash our motorcycle. We would stay there again in a heart beat.

I stayed at the Sunshine Motel for an entire summer and could not have had a better experience. The cabins are immaculate, thoughtfully decorated, and stocked with everything you could possibly need. The owners really go out of their way to make you feel at home, going out of their way to accommodate the needs of their guests and hosting... More

I have revisited the motel few times since my last review, every time I have found great hospitality and and nice home feeling. Place might be little outdated but that cozy feeling and outdoor activity replaces every modern upgrade. I spent great time with wife and kids and I will keep coming back. Keep up great work! and thank you... More
