Stayed here in July. This hotel has a great location to watch the freighters. The reason is hours can go by with no boat traffic and then can be many all at once. At all times of the day. Being right across the street you hear and see them at all hours of the day and night. Clean hotel. Owners... More

We loved our stay at the Longships Motel. Very clean, cute theme, and the location was the best for boat geeks. A quick walk across the street to the lock observation deck, or even watch from the benches on the street. Owners were very friendly and provided a continental breakfast in the morning. My family and I enjoyed sharing which... More

Bad location compared to other hotels down the road. Supposed to have a great view of the locks only all you can see is trees. Very poor customer service with very unprofessional employees. Lots if miscommunication among staff. Don't stay here go to an other place.

Located directly across from the Soo Locks and just up the street from fun shopping and restaurants. Nice clean rooms with fridge and microwave. No coffee in the room, but coffee and continental breakfast in the office. Very friendly and relaxed. We would definitely stay here again.

My family spent the weekend at Longships and it was such a great place to stay. We will be back. We had one room with 2 doubles, and other family members were in a room with a queen. Both rooms offered their own charm and character. Rooms were very clean and smelled like fresh linens upon opening the door. Morning... More

This motel has a great view of the locks and is right on the strip so everything is walkable. It is super clean and the staff are helpful. This motel is very old, though and it's starting to show. If you don't mind that, it's a great place to stay. Chairs are provided outside all the rooms for ship watching.

Our family loved staying here. We could walk to where we wanted and the locks are right in front of the motel. My 3 year old hears the boat horn and gets excited to see the big ship. The staff are very friendly and ready to answer any questions you have.

I recently stayed here with my wife for a getaway on the 4th of July weekend. This motel is directly across from the Soo Locks, great view of the ships, and park. Staff was extremely nice and welcoming. Rooms are typical and reflective of motels and motel pricing, but clean. Coffee, Danish, donuts, and fruit available from the office in... More

If you prefer a resort---keep looking. If you are looking for a clean convenient safe place ti store your stuff, sleep or take a nap. This is for you. Family owned and operated. Grills were handy. You could watch ships from the seats outside your room. Felt like we were traveling in days of old. Everyone was so very nice... More
