“Booked by the Tripadvisor recommendations...as good as the reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This little gem is more like a bed and breakfast; each room is unique, clean and updated. We booked after reviewing all the hotels on Tripadvisor. The motel is located a bit outside the city, but in good location between the attractions and the casino.We found this place just perfect for our needs. No pool, hot tub or "free" breakfast, but a good night's sleep and friendly staff. We also loved the gardens and landscaping. When in the area, we will return :)

We got a warm welcome, unlike any you get at a chain. The room was lovely. Bathroom fixtures (floor, tub, faucets, etc) look to be brand new. We were very glad we stopped here. There's no breakfast but you know what? I'm getting sick of those hotel breakfasts! This was a fun chance to try a local diner.

I also want to note that owner of the Plaza Motor Motel gives good travel advice and unbiased appraisals of local attractions and restaurant.

After reading many of the reviews, we decided to give it a try and it met all of our expectations and I stayed at the Landmark Inn in Marquette last night. They decor is special, the service and kindness displayed by the owner makes it what it is. Very clean, just a very, very special place with little extras through out. And yet, so affordable, amazing. This is small business at it's best!

I'm always nervous about staying in locally-owned motels, but the reviews on TripAdvisor convinced me to give Plaza Motor Motel a shot. Good decision! For the price, our room was better than expected. Everything was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a slight musty smell, but because it had rained for three days straight when we arrived, it wasn't a surprise.

I loved the fact that the owners live on site, and their awesome Labradoodle greeted us when we walked into the office. They clearly take great pride in their business, and it shows.

This motel is a hidden gem. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and clean. Our room was 1 queen for $55, but worth $80 or $90. The rooms have everything needed - fridge, coffee, A/C, plenty of ice, really comfortable bed, very well appointed. The grounds are really nice with flowers.
