“Very Good Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I found The Terrace Motel clean, quiet, and reasonably priced. I stayed there in early autumn on the second night of a five-day Mom & Son road trip. My son reserved the two-room suite for us and it was perfect. Larry's suggestions for supper and breakfast also were on the money and his directions to the Pictured Rocks area saved us quite a bit of time -- otherwise we would have gotten lost due to road-construction detours.

My wife and I backpacked Pictured Rocks and needed a place to stay before and after. Terrace Motel was great. It was inexpensive, comfortable and it was a quick walk into town. Like many have said, Larry is such a great host. When we got back from our backpacking trek several days later, he greeted us and asked how the trek was.

There are some larger hotels outside of Munising, but they cost much more and aren't, in my opinion, ideal locations. I'd definitely recommend Terrace.

I chose this place because of the good reviews and I was not disappointed. The room was clean and quite comfy. It's not luxurious but it is in a quite part of town within easy walking distance of the main drag and some restaurants.

If you are looking for a quiet, cheap place to stay, this is the place. I can't imagine there is anything better priced out there. It is close to the Pictured Rocks, and the owner, Larry, is extremely friendly. He is great for information on places to eat and see. However, there are some downsides. If you want a comfortable bed with air conditioning and a clean shower, we didn't find this place to be it. All depends on what you're looking for.

MunisingTerrace, Owner at Terrace Motel, responded to this review, November 5, 2013
I am pleased that this guest found me helpful, but it distresses me they did not experience the Terrace as the clean place so many others have. It sounds like their stay in September was prior to the arrival, at the end of the month, of the new Serta Regal Suite II plush mattresses. I would welcome the chance to have them stay again, and to earn their satisfaction with every part of their guest experience.

in a good motel. The room was clean, there is no aircondition in the room, but was not needed end of september. Larry, the owner, is a very friendly and helpful guy. It's a bit away from the highway, so it's really quiet.

Like many other have stated, Larry the owner, was very friendly. Upon check in he asked what we would be doing in the area and gave us some tips and suggestions. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom. A nice high sink (I know a strange thing to point out, but something I noticed and appreciated). Good show pressure. Sure there was only a couple of towels, but Larry had stated if we needed more to just ask. It didn't bother us there wasn't air conditioning. It was actually very refreshing to be able to open up the windows. Plus with the ceiling fan it made for a very comfortable sleep. Nice quiet motel and one we would definitely come back to if ever in the area. Great value for the money, only 55.00 bucks a night.

As other reviewers have commented, there is no A/C but we arrived the second week of September and it was wonderful to be able to open windows, turn on the ceiling fans and enjoy the fresh air. Because it was off the main road, it was quiet. Also, Larry was so hospitable and maintains the property well. Our room was very clean an the building with a complete kitchen was a nice plus. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you are traveling in a large group, request room 19. It is an end unit and has one bedroom with...
