My granddaughter and I were traveling across country and stopped into St. Ignace before heading down to southern Mi to visit family. Moran Bay is a jewel, the owner was helpful and friendly and I enjoyed visiting with him. Our room was nice, nothing fancy, has an "up north" feel and I liked that. I had no problem falling asleep...

The owners are very pleasant. I was able to book a room for four days and then add another day with no problem. The bed is comfy and the pillows are fluffy. The water pressure is awesome! Since it's on a hill there is level parking in the back.

We were pleasantly surprised by this small motel, it was everything we wanted for our St.Ignace stay. It is short walk to shopping, restaurants, and the ferries out to the islands. It is also pretty close to the only grocery in town.. Owners are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable. You can't ask for more than that..

Caveat emptor! Potential for updated furnishings and professional personnel, as yet unrealized. We decided to try this motel based on positive online reviews and price, but were disappointed upon arrival. Staff seemed confused, office and room meager and worn. We were unable to get room fee canceled after explaining that we were deciding not to stay. Has a view of... More

We are sorry we did not meet your expectation. We are a safe Motel with no problems in the 11yrs. we have owned the motel. When a reservation is cancelled upon arrival we have a cancellation fee of 1 night room rate which is standard in the industry. As can be seen by all reviews we have clean and comfortable... More

We stayed over the July 4th weekend so the rates were a bit higher but we were very glad we chose the Manor Bay. It was certainly an excellent choice and value for us for the holiday weekend. The motel sits up on a hillside overlooking the bay so the views are about all one could hope for in the... More

Cute motel only 2 blocks South of the main St. Ignace walkway area. Don't expect modern, up-to-date lighting or bathroom fixtures. Does not include telephone or flat screen TV or hairdryer. Does include small TV, refrigerator, coffee pot & plenty of relaxing ambiance along w/a most spectacular view of the bay. The price was more than reasonable at $44.00 per... More

Joan and I have stayed here on our way to St. Joseph's Island and when we visited MACKINAC ISLAND . The motel should be called the GRANDVIEW . We loved its neatness and old fashioned appearance . The owner was kind and helpful . The motel is within walking distance to the downtown and you can see the cruise boats... More

Moran's Motel has a great view of Lake Huron. It is within walking distance to everything in Saint Ignace. The porch is wonderful to sit out on to look out on the water. There is a park across the street. Downtown Saint Ignace is two blocks. Ferry boat is one block. The beds have older mattresses and are not bad,... More

We chose Moran Bay for an overnight based on the many positive reviews on Trip Advisor. It met all our expectations -- and at a very low price. Nice view of the bay and a short walk to town. Clean room with comfortable beds. The place also is kind of nostalgic -- the story of motel my folks stayed in... More

Unplanned stay in St. Ignace brought us here. We needed a room for 2 adults and 2 kids on the fly and stopped in at Moran Bay. The owner was very nice and checked us on quickly. The room was clean and the shower had good water pressure. In the morning we marveled at the beautiful view until the rain... More
