“Excellent for a Super 8”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Comfortable, clean, friendly and nicely updated! Love the large Lake Michigan wall prints in the room. Nice clean window with screen to open to catch breeze and had a view of Manistee lake from second floor room on south side. Beds were comfortable. Only complaints were rattling/buzzing noise from air conditioner and light between beds could not be set for each side of bed individually and were very bright (had to unscrew bulb on one side) Lobby area for breakfast is nice for a Super 8, standard Super 8 breakfast (cinnamon rolls could use improvement)
The river walk, city beach and Lake Bluff Audubon sanctuary are nice attractions nearby (state park is OK but can not compare to Ludington)
Little River Casino is also just a few miles north.

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

One of the nicest Super 8's I have stayed in. Definitely not your old Interstate Super 8. Rooms were actually stylish as well as very functional. Breakfast still remains the same: cold cereal, yogurt, waffle maker, Super 8 cinnamon rolls. Will stay here again when in Manistee.

Room Tip: Need to get a two bed room ($8 more) if you want a refrig and micro in your room.

During a recent motorcycle ride, i stayed at the Super 8 Manistee. My first floor, single room was clean, as was the bathroom, and the room had plenty of space. The bed was very comfortable. But the thing that struck me was, for around 80 bucks a night for a single room, this motel was too stripped down for the price---no pool, no hot tub, no community computer room, no fridge in the room, and a pretty basic, standard issue breakfast….not even pictures on the wall in my room! One would think, a newer property in a tourist destination area, there would be a pool… And lemme tell ya, after riding in the rain much of the day, i was sure disappointed to find out they didn't have a hot tub! Since we were on bikes, and it was getting dark, we settled for this motel.

At any rate, i'm rating this property a 3. If it at least had a pool area, i would have given it a 3.5 or 4.

So, in conclusion, i can mildly recommend this Super 8. It's fine if you get an online deal and certain amenities aren't important to you, but personally, i think Super 8 can do better than this....and so can you........

Thank you for submitting your review from your recent stay in Manistee, MI. We are glad you found your room to be clean and comfortable. I apologize for the missing wall pictures. We are waiting for replacements since some were damaged in shipping during our remodeling process. It is also certainly understandable how a hot tub would be a welcome sight after a long motorcycle ride. Maybe if you find yourself in this area again, you could enjoy one of our jacuzzi tub suites.

So, the old adage is proven right, once again: you get what you pay for. We waited until the last minute to make reservations for a weekend in Manistee. There were other nearby properties that were sold-out (at higher prices), but there were still a few rooms available at the Super-8. They were handicapped rooms (not our preference), but they were available - at a heavily discounted price. So we took them.

In short, the rooms were adequate. Ignoring the handicapped features, which were fully disclosed in advance, the room was sufficient for our needs. The desk was minimal, at best. The wifi worked well, and it was included in the room rate. The room was clean, and it had the necessary amenities.

The complimentary breakfast was the huge disappointment. Compared to other discount hotels in the same price range, it was disappointing to see the tiny variety of food offered. The Super-8 branded cinnamon rolls were the biggest letdown; they were cellophane-wrapped products that were about equivalent to vending machine quality.

The staff was friendly and helpful (provided dinner recommendations). We would probably look for a different property for our next visit, but this met our needs for a last minute reservation.

Thank you for submitting your review of Super 8 in Manistee. We pride ourselves on our sensible rates, friendly service and clean, newly remodeled rooms. Perhaps you did not see all of our breakfast choices available to our guests. They include: two cold cereals, white and wheat breads for toasting (with jelly, peanut butter, etc.), apples, several flavors of yogurt, cinnamon rolls, orange and apple juices, coffee and tea. We also have a waffle iron for making your own hot,delicious waffle. Many guests find it a great way to start their day.

Perhaps if you stay with us the next time you are in Northern Michigan, you could relax in one of our spacious suites that may be more to your liking.
