Clean, comfortable and very affordable! We originally planned on 1, maybe 2 nights, and ended up staying 3! Very nice owners, a very basic room, but it had everything we needed, mini-fridge, small tv, microwave, but we were only here to sleep after hiking, fishing and sightseeing so we didn't need a lot of extras!

This room was huge, had a decent kitchen with table & chairs. They let us bring a blow up air mattress for a grandchild. The bathroom was HUGE. Very clean, updated and well kept. Manager was very polite and helpful

The Fox River Motel had a fine rating on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed as it had the basic essentials for us along with a few extras that we did not use - refrigerator and microwave. The room was on the small side and had 2 double beds. We agreed to only use one and got a lower... More

We were on a trip with our grandchildren... timing "wanted" us in Seney for the night, but knowing it was pretty small, we asked at a restaurant if there were any hotels in Seney. She recommended the Fox River - because it was clean. We contacted them from the restaurant and there was one room left - we took it.... More

We weren't sure what to expect but, based on TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to stay here on our last night of our four-day holiday weekend. Check-in was smooth and accurate. Our room (#15) is a small standard motel room with two double beds, a micowave stacked on top of a small fridge, A/C, an old-style TV with Direct TV, a... More

I was just passing by and I could not drive any more. Needed a room for my daughter and me. It was late and Diane had one room left. Very Clean and the bed was just perfect. Did not expect much from such a little place but I was greatly pleased. If you need a place to stay in Seney... More

We stayed one night at this motel motel while visiting Seney National Wild Life Refuge. It is essentially the closest accommodation to the refuge. We opted to stay in a room with a kitchen. We ended up not using the kitchen, but it has all the typical pots and pans etc. The lady at the desk was quite helpful and... More

On my travels from downstate to Marquette I had some car troubles and had to be towed to a wonderful little shop just around the corner from this motel. They told me that it was a great place to stay and they were right! Since it was the off season, I walked inside to find instructions on how to get... More

We picked this motel based on fellow reviewers and were not disappointed. Very clean room, lots of space, cable, wifi, fridge and even a stove, pots, pans and plates, etc. and extremely reasonable prices. Beds were very comfortable too.

We were beyond happy about our stay at the Fox River Motel. We rented a kitchenette room that included two queens beds. There was enough room to move around and cook meals in the room. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. It is centrally located to Pictured Rocks and Seney NWF and easy to find. We would... More
