We made the reservation after seeing the motel on the internet and read some of the reviews which were all very positive. It was a good decision to stay at the Northshore because it is one of the cleanest rooms we have ever stayed in. The room was newly redecorated, had a nice view of Lake Michigan, and parking right...

If you are looking for a 4 star place with huge rooms, television in the shower and all the other trappings of an expensive hotel, don't stay at the Northshore Motel. If, however, you want a very clean, lovingly restored and updated 1960s era motel that is inexpensive and whose owners are exceedingly helpful, you've got the right place. Dick... More

Completely updated motel. Our room was super clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Flat screen TV, Clean Microwave, Refrigerator and AC. Very nice furnishings; here we slept on the most comfortable mattress of our entire trip to the UP. Large windows offered very nice views of Lake Michigan. Sitting bench outside each room. Parking lot was spotless; no sand. Boardwalk along... More

This is indeed a very well taken care of motel, family owned, newly remodeled, and takes care of all the basics. They have no breakfast, but coffee in the lobby and pots in each room. It was great for an overnight stop on our way West on US 2 and certainly cheaper than some of the chains in the area!

An independently run motel. The couple running were very nice and accommodating. Gave us a towel right away to wipe the dew off of the motorcycle. The motel had parking at the door which was great. The room was very nice and extremely clean. Would definitely stay here again!

Our family of four felt right at home at Northshore. The room was a nice size and had a small fridge. The motel's owners are super-friendly, too. Our only advice would be to choose a room on one of the ends of the building to help cut down on walk-by traffic if that's a concern.

Really nice motel. Our room was fresh and clean. Everything we needed was there and new. We found out that the entire motel had been renovated in the last few years. They did a great job. It definitely exceeded our expectations. We dropped the kids at camp in Wisconsin and are heading to a wedding in Michigan LP and so... More

I waited until the last minute to find a hotel during 4th of July weekend and this place saved the day! I called and there was only 1 room left but not what I was looking for. Called around town and everyone else was booked up. Thinking we were totally out of luck, all of a sudden my phone rang... More
