“Passing through”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Just a stop on the way to Mayo Clinic. An older property but clean and everything worked. Waterfront rooms with terrace available. Nice place to sip wine in the evening looking out at Lake Michigan. Not overpriced. They also have a restaurant where we ate supper. Reasonably priced with good food. Wine, by the glass, was inexpensive also. I have stayed here before and will do so again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor waterfront rooms are nice if you like to look at the water and relax.

Great stay. Very clean, super friendly staff. Couldn't have asked for a better nights stay. Beds were comfortable, and the view of the water from the walk out balcony spectacular. When we come back this way, we will definitely stay here again !!

Stayed one night and wished we could have had the lake view! Very large room and clean! Quiet even though a wedding was going on. Should have ate dinner because of the view! Great breakfast!

Ive been here many times,with family,husband and 2 young granddaughters.We love the pool,the restaurant -bar is excellent. The view is out the this world,sunrise is a photographers dream. No its not fancy, but Ive told many people about it .All the staff are kind and helpful,rooms clean,and very safe,and a great price.I tried some where else once,more expensive but pet friendly.nothing compares to Terrace Bay.Just wish they would have a few pet friendly rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for bay side.

I have to respond to Troy S's "horrible" description. I have stayed in this hotel many times over the years and while I would agree that the decor is somewhat dated, I have always found it to be clean and very quiet. That the Troy S. review is so biased lends more support to the proposition that reviews are often driven by commercial avarice or an unstable personality.

I was in the Escanaba area for a training and stayed at this hotel. If I'm being honest, I was skeptical at first. I work for the government and normally when I go to training, I would be staying at some chain hotel. I was very surprised when I learned that this was where I was being sent for lodging. The hotel decor is definitely outdated, however the rooms were incredibly CLEAN and QUIET. The continental breakfast was typical but nice. I did not personally use the pool however my colleagues who did said it was nice and also mentioned the cleanliness of the place. The motel also had a nice view from the balcony. If you don't need anything fancy or flashy but are just looking for a quiet, clean, place to stay, this is a great place.

Our research into this property concerned us because of the long history. But we were very surprised and pleased to find a nice, clean room with a great view. Not the most updated furnishings, but just fine for a short stopover on our way to the U.P. The dining room was very nice and the staff was friendly and efficient. Definitely recommended to get to see a great sunrise from our balcony.
