“Clean And Affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

I have stayed here on two different occasions. I have not felt the need to look for a room elsewhere. The Sunset fits the budget and meets my expectations. No funky odors, no funky owners... there is nothing about this place that inspires negative comments from me. I will go straight to the Sunset next time I arrive in Escanaba.... which is a great town, by the way.

We are so glad that your stay here was pleasant! It is so exciting to know that we will have returning guests and that your expectations are being met. And also, thank you for the new "no funky odors/owners" slogan idea... I think I like it.

The rooms were obviously remodeled recently which provides a very clean and comforting atmosphere. The bed was comfortable and linens were fresh like new. The room included a newer TV, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. Everything I would need for a long stay or just the night. The staff here was great!! Very accommodating and friendly! The location is prime just out of town and near to many areas of outdoor interest. This is the cleanest motel that I have stayed at and would definitely recommend staying here to anyone. All of this for a very affordable price. Great job Sunset Lodge and Thank you!!

Because of the reviews I read and the listed rates, I selected this motel while I attended an event in town. I was warmly greeted by the owner upon check-in. He asked what brought us to town. When I mentioned the Geocaching event, he said other geocachers were also staying there/here. While checking us in, he also upgraded our room at no extra charge. Room had just been recently painted. It was also very clean. Owner informed us of donuts & coffee available in a.m. Told us to ask if we needed anything. Room was comfortable and fit our bill - both financially and accomodation wise. Close to many family dining establishments as well as shopping. Nice little town and nice lodge. Will stay again when we visit.

We were driving through the U.P. to the lower Peninsula for Thanksgiving. Stopped here for the night and were very happy with a clean room at a fair price. Very much appreciate that they accept a dog. Owner makes you feel welcome and comfortable. We will stay here again, probably in March.

Read the other reviews and decided to give it a go. Great hosts, clean room, price was right. Good stop overnight. We would stay again. We thought the highway noise might be a problem but it turned out to be negligible. Slept well. (Lots of fields for the Mobythedog to do her thing)

Next time you're in with Mobythedog, we also have free dog treats, balls for "fetch", wash areas, and towels to dry him off to ensure he has an equally enjoyable stay with us :)

I was in town for a group function for a few days and did not like the price of the hotels that the group had recommended. So I took a look on this site and found this one at a much cheaper price. The owners were friendly, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Great deal and bargain for a place to sleep while in town.

I will return if I am ever in the area again.

I read all the reviews I could find about this small vintage motel in Escanaba. You may have read their story too. We checked in just before dark on October 7, 2012 and liked the owner a lot. We had room 12, your basic clean room with a comfortable bed, table and chairs, tv, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker. Everything worked well, it was spotlessly clean. We sat outside to watch the sun set, chatted with other guests who had also read about the Sunset Lodge on tripadvisor. We slept well. The next morning we met the charming baby daughter, as we enjoyed a cup of coffee. We look forward to watching her grow up as we visit from year to year.
