By a stroke of luck we got a room here. People, this is not the Taj Mahal...it is basic at best...but you have Lake Michigan outside your window and lake breezes abound. It is reasonably priced and clean. Staff nice. You have a patio out the front door which is nice if you like meeting people but it would also... More

I found this place by accident a few years ago and have tried to return as often as possible since. The rooms are clean and the price is reasonable. The motel offers a beautiful view of Lake Michigan and is literally steps away from a wonderful beach. If you like incredible sunsets, tranquility, and friendly people, come visit the Lake... More

Great cottage type experience, wonderful hosts great value. If you need glitz and a fancy room, go some where else. but if you want clean comfortable room with a great view, check this place out. Eat at the house of flavors great Michigan Pot Hole ice cream.

Loved this place right on the beach...fire pit so we're able to have a night bonfire...a bit dated which added to the retro charm...clean and that's what matters to me. Owner and wife on site to give history...will definitely be back another time👍👍👍

We love this motel. It is a little older, but clean and comfortable. Sun sets are amazing! Sandy beach right out the back door of motel room, which overlooks Lake Michigan. Location is perfect with plenty to see and do. We love this place. A hidden gem!

My husband surprised me with a stay on Lake Michigan! It really is right on the lake. Views from the room were spectacular! It's a mom and pop place (Paul and Darcy) great, friendly people who have been doing this 30 plus years. The rooms are simple and retro. Some have air condoning some don't. We had a very clean...

We stayed here 2006 and read the TA reviews so we had a good idea what to expect and we were pleasanly surprised. They had freshened up the bathroom and there were new matresses. The rooms were clean and fresh. The rooms have a large fan and we had a good night sleep even without the A/C. The short walk... More

I first stayed here around 1958, Peggy and I stayed here on our honeymoon and we've never stayed in any other Manistee hotel. It's right on the beach on the south side of the channel. This is an old motel. It has no air conditioning, although that isn't any issue most of the time because they have a fan in... More

We stayed in one of the regular rooms, not one of the suites. If you are spoiled by amenities (in my best whiney voice) small tv's (the lake is our tv), no ac (you're on the lake!), small sink, etc., then this place is not for you. It does have its shortcomings, like no fridge (bring a large cooler) or... More
