motel between St Ignace and Escanaba?

We will be coming from West Branch and heading west on Hwy 2. Are there any motels between St Ignace and Escanaba?

Thank you.

I haven't stayed at them, but yes there are quite a few motels. Some of the communities where you will find them are Naubinway, Manistique, Rapid River, and (almost to Escanaba) Gladstone.

I haven't stayed here, but I took a look in their rooms last summer when we had lunch next door and I thought the rooms were very clean (not at all fancy) and the price was extremely reasonable, given the beautiful view. Skyline Motel, Epoufette:

It might not be an issue for you, but if anyone else comes to this thread in the future, I wanted to note that they take dogs at this motel too.

There are several motels in Manistique, some of them are right across the road from the public boardwalk and beach.

Most of them look nice and well-kept from the outside but I have never stayed there.

There are chain motels as well as mom and pop establishments. The Econolodge looks like it has a great spot right across from the beach, but again I have not stayed there.

You didn't indicate any details in your post, but West Branch and Escanaba are about 5 hours apart (per Mapquest). Is there a particular reason for a motel between St. Ignace and Escanaba as opposed to just staying in Escanaba?

We just drove that route a few weeks ago and believe me, there are plenty of motels. It should not be a problem finding one.

Looking for a motel that is right across road from Lake Michigan. Stayed there several years ago. Not in manistique but right in dunes area. Can you help please?

We loved staying at the Jolly Rose Motel in Germfask. Excellent hospitality!

It's about 1hr 20 min from St. Ignace and about 1.5 hrs from Escanaba.

Edit: Sorry, I just realized this was an old post and my answer may not be relevant to the OP anymore.
