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

Staff is very friendly!! Gave us maps of the local downtown and told a few places to eat at. Answered all our questions and helped us navigate the area. We had a motel room; had a nice up north feeling; mini fridge, microwave, small sitting area. Nice sitting area outside with grills, bonfires and sitting areas. Has access to Lake... 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

We are sorry that your stay was not to your expectations. We only have one blanket in the room per bed and since you were in a room with one queen bed, only one blanket. We always have extra if one asks, also the room you were in has a new heater/air conditioning unit that guests will turn on if... More

Great value. Very pet friendly. Outside hose to spray off and towels to dry dog were provided without having to ask. Quick access to beach across the highway. Short drive from Porcupine Mountains. Will keep going back!

You can't go wrong here !! The owners here have hospitality figured out very nicely. We wanted advice on which waterfalls to see as we passed through the area. He coached us on where to go, both on the way to the motel and as we left for home. Lovely individual cabins, pleasant grounds, and a private access to Lake... More

This quaint old place is on the main road just east of the Porcupine Mountains on the way into Ontonagon. This hotel is an extreme value. There is a beautiful front lawn, with chairs, tables, porch swings, a fire circle. Across the highway, there is a short walk to a private beach, where the sunset, stars, and sunrise are yours...

We enjoyed our stay at the Sunshine Motel. The owners were super friendly. I loved that it was pet friendly, which is hard to come by and the rates very reasonable. The grounds are well kept and super cute with a communal fire pit and lounging chairs. The rooms were smaller, but they were well equipped with what you needed... More
