My wife and me stayed on the week of August 21st for 5 days. This is a great place and they have it designed to give the Northern MI perspective. The owners both work and live on premises, which they give it their personal attention. My wife and me planned this trip for months and had our reservation in as... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this place. So much so that we stayed an extra night. The room was clean and comfortable. Windows on each side of the room made the room nice and light. It was in the 80's during our stay so we needed the air conditioner at night. It was one of the best AC units... More

Very clean and friendly. Bruce and Kay are great hosts, and Kay is very relational with helpful suggestions. We made much use of beach access for watching sunrises and sunsets Over the lake. It was great value in the area. Rooms are not serviced during your stay, but they are very responsive to needs. No breakfast, but microwave in room... More

We were visiting the Ontonogan area and picked this place based on reviews. It was an excellent choice. We had a motel room with microwave, coffee maker, and small fridge which was nice so we could have breakfast in the room before starting the day. The decor was fun and the room was well-cared for, if quirky. This is an... More

We had an amazing time at the Sunshine Motel and Cabins. We spent three nights and the price was very reasonable. We loved our quaint but updated room. :) Everything we would ever need was included in this room. The owners Kay and Bruce shared their UP knowledge and offered ideas on what to do in the area. Great hospitality!... More

First glance will make you question whether this is worth the stop. It definitely has a 60's era look to it. The rooms, however, are updated and beautifully decorated. We had the adjoining rooms for our family of five and it was nice to have some privacy from our kids and not share a TV with them. The kitchenette is... More

This was a nice hotel. It's a little dated, but the rooms were clean and nice, and the little beach across the street was lovely for watching the sunset. It's also very affordable, so was perfect when we were looking for a place to crash on our road trip. There was a nice fire pit and seemed to be some... More

My friend and I were very happy with the quality of this Motel. The price was only $68 a night for two double beds, and for that price I expected a "dated" cabin, but it was nothing of the sort. Very, very friendly owners, the kind that makes you want to stay just so you can visit. A short walk... More

First of all, if all one is looking for is a place to sleep, this might be for you. The proprietors are very, very nice and accommodating. The room we were given, however, had trouble. Linoleum floor that felt like it was going to go through the crossbeams if we didn't step on the crossbeams, two out of three lights... More
