We stayed there for two night and I can't believe how much of a hidden gem this place is. The rooms are clean, the staff treats everyone like family, beautiful view of crystal clear water and free fire wood. Whenever I come to the UP I will be staying here!

If you're looking for luxury, the Bayview is not your best choice. However, its positive aspects make it comfortable, fun and definitely economical. We booked a room by phone three weeks out for a 3-day stay in the second week of June and were surprised to find the Bayview very sparsely populated. We hadn’t realized that peak season in northern... More

We stayed at this hotel overnight, the staff was very friendly and the area beautiful. If you are looking for an affordable room, and a pet friendly location it is a great stop. Not many hotels in St. Ignace will allow pets - and it is appreciated that this one does! Be aware that the bathroom/shower is quite small. The... More

Our room was on the beach with a view to the north and the east. Spectacular! Brought our dog and he was welcomed by Bob. There were several other dogs and it was so much fun to watch the interaction of them playing on the beach. Bonfire every night. Clean and comfortable. Couldn't ask for anything else.

The Bay View came highly reconmened from friends. We loved this place. Location, people, & of course the nightly bon fires make you feel like your are really up north. Bob & Karen are great host & will help you in any way possible. Looking forward to staying there again.

If I was in downtown Chicago and would want a hotel that is super posh, however I do not want that when in the UP. This is a very clean motel that is the full UP experience. There is a small refrigeration, microwave and coffee maker in room 14.

Stayed here based on other trip advisor comments and it was really quite good for $60. Clean, quiet, good sized rooms in section behind main office. They had the bonfire and roasted smores on the beach. Good place for kids as they can play in the sand and shallow water 10 feet from the bonfire. Close to Java Joe's for... More

We stayed here overnight while passing through. Owners definately go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The motel is slightly dated (has up north feel), but SQUEAKY clean. Has access to nice sandy beach. EXCELLENT value. Would definately recommend to anyone.
