Don't let your travels to the U.P. end without staying at this motel. Located on US 2, you are only a few miles from some great attractions. This is one of the most comfortable, friendly and clean motels we've stayed at. Mike and his dogs take great pride insuring your stay will be the Best!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Colonial Motel. From the start, we were welcomed by Michael the owner who quickly got us settled in. Michael filled us in on the history of the motel and the improvements that have been made over time. The motel is classic mid-century with plenty of pine and a lodge feel in the motel lobby. The lobby features an incredible array of framed classic photographs from the 50's and 60's. Michael's dachshunds are super cute and add to the homey vibe. The rooms were super clean and bedding comfortable. You'll find great food and craft beer in Manistique. A classic "Big Boy" restaurant is a short drive up the highway. The Colonial is located across the street from a boardwalk which you can take for almost 2 miles along the lakeshore. About a mile up from the motel is the Manistique Lighthouse. A short drive will take you to Kitch-iti-Kipi which is amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Colonial Motel and thanks to Michael for his hospitality and great tips about the area.
