I do not recommend staying here. We were told the room was ready and was sent up to the room with all of our belongings only to find that the room was not ready and the maids were in the middle of cleaning it and were reluctant to let us drop off our things (we were scheduled to go for... More

This is a nice hotel, recently updated. Nice Amenities and continental breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to a friend!! Pricy in the summer, but most hotels here are. Room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had a Jacuzzi, heart shaped in our room, we very much enjoyed that!! Great parking and great location near picture rocks.

Reserved the room here months ago when we planned our trip to the Upper Peninsula to visit the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. This is a two story hotel with inside hallway access. No smoking; whirlpool spa & sauna; guest laundry; a decent complimentary hot breakfast buffet and convenient parking. We had a 2 queen bed room. Bathrooms updated and clean... More

Northstar does not take AAA. There is no pool, however, they do have the biggest hot tub, I've ever seen. They do have free breakfast. They have a sauna. I am staying in a 3 queen bed suit with no privacy at all. It's 3 beds in a square room, with 1 small fridge, and 1 T.V. I do not... More

I reserved a hotel room for a family gathering. I call two weeks in advance to cancel, They told me it was cancelled. I call the hotel again when the room charge showed up on my credit statement. The owner told me that she did not believe I cancelled because I did not receive a cancellation email. Owner was defensive... More

We stayed at the Northstar 7/31/16-8/2/16. When I called to make reservations I was thrilled to hear they had a room with 3 queen beds as I was traveling with my two young adult sons. I received a message several days later that I was no longer booked for the 3Q room bc of a computer "glitch" but they had... More

On a rare getaway without kids, we got a heart-shaped hot tub in the room. I was sure it was going to just be cheesy, but we actually loved it. The room was large, the bed was huge and very comfortable, and we loved watching TV from the hot tub. The hotel was no-frills, but clean and the breakfast was... More

Looking for a room for over night at last minute, I found North Star thru TA recommendations. We were very happy with the location, just 3 miles away from boat docks and the cleanliness of the place. Breakfast included a nice variety. The location also has an indoor pool open till midnight, but we did not get a chance to... More

Ran out of hot water during my shower. Then the smoke alarm went off at 6:55AM and continued intermittently for a half hour. Reported this incident to the office and was met with indifference. No offer to adjust bill and only a half hearted apology. Breakfast was mediocre. Also didn't make up the bed because there was a personal item... More

Doesn't look like much from the drive-by, but this place is very clean, well-kept, quiet, friendly and had a descent breakfast included. Very competitive rate for tourist area, though it is just slightly outside Munising (town of 2500, so that means 5 mins from town) We only spent one night there, but Highly recommend.
