Travelling from Mercer, Pa, on our first trip to the UP, looking for a safe, clean, affordable place with space for our bike trailer. Andy and Sherri Wheeldon are owners/operators and genuinely nice people. Hotel is an easy 2 miles from downtown shopping & port facilities, well out of the noise and traffic of Main Street. Cabins and rooms are... More

We will be back! This motel is the gem of St. Ignace. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the building and grounds are well maintained. Definitely a good value. And the owners are a delight! Thanks for a great place to stay!

Andy and Sherry are awesome! Great place to stay and very friendly. I would recommend this place to everyone. They are just a phone call away and will have your room ready for you. Fire pit for fun and always ready to get what you need.

You couldn't pick a better clean, friendly and accommodating time. You will go back year after year . Cleanest place we have ever stayed and very reasonable. You'd be crazy to stay anywhere else. Awesome!

We've stayed here every time we come up to the UP. Excellent service. Love talking with Andy. They provide great service and hospitality every time. Wouldn't consider staying any where else . Couldn't ask for better hosts. Reasonable rates and clean rooms. Highly recommend staying here.

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.
