Clean! The property is well taken care of. Great value, we enjoyed the cabin and will return on our next trip "up north". Andy was very friendly, he checked with us in the evening and morning to see if we needed anything.

If you want to see Mackinaw Island, I prefer to stay in St. Ignace and ferry over for the day. The island is VERY pricey. Ther are a number of nice hotels in downtown St. Ignace, but the hidden gem is just north of town, The Northnaire is a bit lacking in amenities, bring your own shampoo, BUT, very clean,... More

The three C’s of motels- Clean, Comfortable and Convenient. Then add outstanding customer service, all at an affordable cost and there it is -a GREAT place to stay. Whether it is just for a night or a few days, we always choose the Northernaire.

We spent three nights at Northernaire, was told there would be no housekeeping done on the weekend. I will explain that. Every so often Andy and his wife have college friends come up for the weekend arriving sometime Friday night. The sheets were not changed nor was the room cleaned on Friday morning. Andy does a great job of socializing... More

This is a nice, clean motel that is in a great location. The owners are friendly and very accommodating. Have stayed here twice and will definitely return. Close to the casino and not far from shopping.

We cannot say enough about our stay. Warm greeting from both Sherri and Andy and they were very helpful with things to do. This was our first trip to Saint Ignace and we hope to make it a regular getaway site. The room was very clean comfortable and Andy's dry humor delightful. Sherri was the hostess that goes the extra... More

Andy is a great host and tries to make you as welcome as you could ever feel. He is great with names and remembers the last conversation you were having with him and always shows an interest in what has been going on since your last visit. We have stayed here many times.

Great place to stay and Andy will go out of his way to accommodate you! I love the cabins too! I have stayed at Northernaire exclusively while on trips over the last dozen years. Also FREE Wi-Fi! Close to the casino, but relax and just have Andy call for the free shuttle!

We were looking for a neat little place to stay during our honeymoon road trip that brought us to Northern Michigan. Northernaire Motel was just what we were looking for! We met Andy upon arrival and he was so nice and helpful. I thought it was such a nice touch that when he saw my car, he was telling me... More
