We stay at this hotel every year on the way to a family gathering. As mentioned in many other reviews, the Star is spotlessly clean. It is family run and friendly. The rooms are large, and the decor is simple but comfortable with plenty of vintage charm. One thing many people don't mention is that the rooms all include a... More

During a visit to Manistique, my daughter and I spent 4 nights at the Star Motel. It is probably a two star property, but they do "basic place to lay your head" perfectly. This property is spotless....ceiling fans, bathroom fans....there is not a speck of dust or dirt on anything in the room. The good - CLEAN, cheap, close to... More

Every time we come to Manistique we always stay at the Star motel. We always request rooms 1, 2 or 3! Rooms are spotless! The lady and her son who own the motel are very nice! Make sure you take a walk to the water, always fun to pick up driftwood! We'll be back!

My daughter wanted to celebrate her birthday in the UP so we took a weekend trip. We go up yearly as we have family up there and usually stay in chain hotels. We decided to give the smaller motels a chance during this trip. We picked the Star Motel because it was on the water and it had excellent reviews.... More

Good prices, good rooms, pet friendly. Highly recommend the Star and we will stay there next time we visit the U.P. We visit at least once a year and this was the first time we stayed at the Star and it is the best place we have stayed in Manistique.

Friends were staying here and invited us over to see it before they came to our home. I had been curious about the place for years. I admit I was completely astonished when I saw their room. As so many other review have stated, it is extremely clean. I actually told our friend that it looked as though they had... More

This motel is older, but the rooms are spotless. No breakfast, but there are lots of places to eat in the area. The price was right, too! I also enjoyed a short walk down to the Lake Michigan shore. It's nothing fancy, but comfortable and more than adequate. Our only complaint was the soft foam on top of the mattresses.

This has got to be one of the cleanest places we've ever stayed in. Rooms are spacious and full of cool old furniture from the '50s, '60s or '70's - much of it blonde. Little road noise. Very, very low rates! Skip the chain motels nearby and stay here! Friendly owners. Our only disappointment was that there's really no access... More

We've been staying here for about 3 years now. It was referred to us and now we are referring to our friends. We tried others in the area.......but this one is the best "all the way around".

We always stay in this hotel when in the area. Clean and friendly along with the sounds of Lake Michigan in you window all night. Love the large rooms and the furnishings. Would stay here again if in the area.
