Even tho this is the only motel in Seney, its still the best! We very much enjoyed our Monday night stay. This is a U.P. Mom&Pop motel which suited us just fine. We had a kitchenette room with 2 double beds. The room was clean and well stocked. Owners were friendly and we were happy to get a room without... More

Years of corporate travel have made me ‘soft’ and now I tend to stay at Hilton hotels for all my personal travel too – the diamond card aided upgrades being an obvious draw. With that in mind I was a little concerned to be staying in a motel but recognised that the Seney Waldorf is some way from completion and... More

This the second year I've stayed at Fox River. Its a nice clean mom and pop motel. Owners are great. My room had a fridge, microwave and two burners for cooking. Dishes, cups, etc. Can't beat the rates. Just remember, its a small motel

We recently stayed at the Fox River Motel for two nights on a 2.5 week tour of the U.P. We were staying here because of its close proximity to Seney National Wildlife Refuge. This is a very small motel at the intersection of 77 and 28. Communicating with the owner to make advance reservations was easy and pleasant. She helped... More

We've been coming to the FRM since 2001. Been to the Annual Veterans Snowmobile Ride all but one year. Wow, what an event for those who enjoy the great outdoors and commaraderie. For the price, the motel accommadations are superb and the hosts are exceptional. They go out of their way to ensure you know the area and have a... More

We stayed there long before December 2009 (It was more like the late 1980's early 1990's) but that's the earliest date available on this review. We stopped in Seney on our way through to Manitoba from Southern Ontario because the town has the same name as our surname. Our kids thought it was a riot seeing their last name everywhere.... More

Always clean, quiet and comfortable. This is a mom & pop hotel where the person at the desk is the owner.

As far as comparable motels go, we think the Fox River Motel is a great value. It's not the kind of place you go to just hang out at the pool (there isn't a pool), but if you are visiting Michigan's Upper Peninsula, you're likely here for the great outdoors and just need a place to sleep. We stayed here... More
