“Not bad for Super 8”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Service was very friendly. Room was clean and seems to have been remodeled recently. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was nothing fancy. Only protein was yogurt. Basic cereal and toast, make your own waffles plus Great Start cinnamon rolls.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

First off, we chose this hotel last minute, only a couple days before July fourth. Though our options were limited at that point, we chose this hotel based on the favorable reviews here and the affordable price. We have absolutely no complaints. First off, you can't beat the location- Literally across the street of Manistee Lake and only a couple of minutes from Lake Michigan. Manistee is a beautiful town, with a phenomenal beach. We're glad we stayed here, as opposed to Traverse City- it's more affordable and considerably less congested. The room was clean and modernized. I haven't stayed at a hotel in this price range that looked so updated. The bathroom was clean and reasonably appointed, for the price. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was satisfactory. The only "downsides" are that our room didn't have a mini fridge (which is ok, since we brought a cooler), and there wasn't a pool or fitness facility onsite. Then again, it's highly unlikely we would use those amenities if they were available. You're right near the beach, so you don't need a pool, and running around the pier was great exercise. We will absolutely return to the lovely city of Manistee, and will definitely consider using Super 8 again!

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.

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........

Room Tip: 2nd floor [south-facing] rooms closest to the highway will give you a glimpse of Manistee Lake and t...

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.
