My husband and I have stayed here before and loved the view of the bay on Lake Superior from the windows and the chairs provided on the beach front. The room had a very comfortable queen bed with adequate covers (and extras available on a shelf). The bathroom, while small, is very well appointed with shower and was very clean. The small kitchen had a full size coffee maker, a full size stove, full refrigerator with large top freezer compartment - a microwave, toaster and plenty of dishes and pots and pans. The TV was quite high on top of the fridge and was difficult to get started but the owner came immediately and got it going and showed us the ins and out of the funky remote. The living area has plenty of seating space. We recommend this lodging.
We booked this motel for its location in Munising. Right on the bay. We had room 110 with two bedrooms, a living room with couch, chair TV, table and 2 chairs, fridge and small microwave. The bedrooms are small but were perfect for two couples traveling together. Bathroom was plain, clean and suited our needs. The decor is straight out of the 60's complete with my mother's green linen drapes! Everything was clean. We loved the big window to look out on the lake. We Loved the screen door on the outside of the regular door. Could leave open for more light on such a nice day. We highly recommend this motel as we enjoyed the retro feel of staying in a motor lodge.
The only thing this place has going for it is the location right on the shore of Lake Superior. Unfortunately, it was cloudy and rainy the evening we were there so we didn't even get to see the sunset. There were tears in the couch and the rocking chair was wobbly. There is mold in the tub and cobwebs jnside the windows. The air conditioning unit wss so loud I couldn't sleep with it on. If I had not prepaid on Booking.com I would have walked awsy. I would sleep in my car before staying at this place again.
We stayed June 26-29 in Motel Unit #105 (2 bedrooms & a small bathroom) then stayed in Unit #102 (like a condo with sofa, kitchen, table & 4 chairs and a huge bathroom). Everyone has a parking spot, ice is handy, and a small breakfast provided. We originally only wanted to stay 2 nights, but there is so much to do and see here, we decided to go for 3 nights. Yes, it is dated - no fancy chandeliers hanging BUT you are privy to STUNNING SUNSETS EVERY NIGHT!! There are picnic benches and comfy dated chairs all along the the South Bay. Everyone can sit and unplug the TV, because you have the best show right in front of you every night. Remember in the summer, it stays lighter longer. Yeah! LOCATION IS PERFECT - you are at the gateway to “The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore” which extends for 42 miles along the shore of Lake Superior. You can hike and/or take a cruise. We (69 & 66 years old) opted to take the 4pm cruise when the sun will be shining on those rocks. AMAZING! Close by: a little town called Christmas, Hiawatha National Forest (Bay Furnace), Wagner and Munising Falls. Tracey’s Restaurant (in the Roam Inn) is fantastic - we sat outside and enjoyed the view. From here, we traveled to Mackinac Island - maybe 2 hours from here. Would I stay here again - you betcha!!!!

Nice location and well maintained, no lie about sunset availability. Probably a little overpriced but not as shabby looking at some of the competition and staff was super friendly. Quiet and comfortable.
My family of 4 and our friends, another family of 4, rented one of the houses for a few nights. The house was very dated, which doesn’t bother me, but the house also is in need of repairs and many items in the home were broken, including the front door, kitchen drawers, and countertop was not attached. The worst part was that it was very dirty. Dirt and sand on the bathroom floor, hair in the bathtub, looked like pet stains from accidents on the carpet, cobwebs everywhere. We went to the office with our concerns and was given a vacuum, which was broken, the first night. Unfortunately no other local hotel had a vacancy that night and we had no choice but to stay. The next morning we went to the office again with concerns. We were told a different housekeeper cleaned the house then their regular one (not sure that explains the needed repairs and cobwebs). We were offered for the house to be cleaned again, or $100 off our first night, or we could leave that morning and get a full refund for our planned stay. Packed up right away and left. Would not go back.…
The location is excellent. You are right between the downtown where the Pictured Rocks cruise goes out and the beautiful National seashore park. And the waterfront view is excellent. The rooms are dated and that doesn’t bother me but the bathroom was not ok. The shower curtain had a lot of mildew and the wall has black mildew or mold…a lot of it. This wasn’t just one bad day for the cleaning staff. Sink and tub so old and worn they looked dingy and unappealing. The beds were all clean and comfortable. Office staff was nice and helpful. Pine walls are nostalgic and the two bedroom suite we had was spacious.
We chose the Sunset as it was the #3 ranked motel in town. I'd hate to see the #4 and up rated. This place is in desperate need of a remodel. We had a two bed room. Both beds had stained linens when we arrived. The carpet was in really bad shape. The floor around the toilet was weak and sounded like the toilet was loose. The shower curtain had pink mold growing on it and the floor tile next to the shower was moldy. Hot water - ha, sort of. After 4-5 minutes the water got warm but never hot and the water pressure was weak, if you could even call it that. When we arrived, I looked for a different hotel to move to but nothing was available so we toughed it out. Would not recommend staying here.
Name of the hotel fits the area just right. You are right on the water. They provide picnic tables and chairs to sit and watch the sunset over the water. It was a little chilly and breezy to sit outside for me. But I would step out and get my pictures of the sunset each night. Katie that sat behind the desk was very helpful on places to go to or directions. Meet her when I came in to get breakfast the first morning. They have yogurt, danish not too fresh, coffee, orange juice and I believe banana’s. You enter the room to a room that had abed, dresser, table and chair and the tv. That bedroom was comfortable. Then there is a door with another bed and end table. That must be where everyone slept because that mattress needs to be replaced. The bathroom was ok. I felt the place to be cleaned.…
Sure, the interior design is a bit dated. Sure, it’s not exactly the most modern. But it was decently quiet and it was clean for us. The full kitchenette was a nice touch with plenty of cutlery and plates. If you need a place to rest and nothing much more, it’s a great little spot. The views of the lake are incredible too! There’s a limited selection of pastries and breakfast items, but it’s free so I’m not complaining. I can’t speak for those who had a poor experience recently, but I had a decent stay here. Tldr: It’s basically a time capsule motel from the 1960s, but it’s a fine place to stay for a few nights.
