Sunset Lodge was a very pleasant experience. It is an older property but impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. The room was on the small side but stripped of all that kitschy motel nonsense and just painted fresh and light with spare decor and clean lines. Very fresh and with an artful sensibility. And thick towels!

We stayed here several times before with our dog because they allow pets. Some places that are pet friendly are not always the cleanest, but this place is an exception! This last time we stayed we did not have our beloved dog with us ( he died ) but we asked for a pet room anyway because they are larger.The carpet was so clean, you would never think it was a room that any dog was ever allowed in. Also, being able to walk right next- door to eat is great.The bathroom was spotless, and the owners are down to earth good people. What's not to like!!!

We are so sorry to hear about your lovely dog! Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, and especially the fact that our pet friendly rooms are just as clean as the rest! Our rooms are all different sizes, and are split pretty evenly in regard to the number of large pet-friendly vs no-pet rooms. We typically sell them on a first-come first-served basis, and as requested. We truly appreciate the kind words and hope to see you again soon!

I saw this motel on tripadvisor so we decided to check it out. I was apprehensive because the price seemed so reasonable that it might not be much of a place. I was wrong. While it is not the Hilton, it is clean, warm, cozy, friendly, accommodating and accepts pets.
Jarred, the owner, is pleasant and very helpful.
We will stay here again and will encourage others to do so.

Thank you very much for choosing our location and for writing a review! Regarding the apprehensiveness; We really believe that keeping our rates as affordable as possible as we re-introduce the motel to the area adds much value to the service we are providing, and can only hope that we aren't steering away potential visitors. It is guests like you who keep us going, and we do look forward to seeing you again!

We liked this motel a lot. It sure was nicer and more affordable than some of the chain motels on the other side of Lincoln Road. I also like staying at privately owned family operations a whole lot more than impersonal chain motels. These people treated us right!

Room Tip: This motel is close to the many great businesses in Escanaba like the Family Inn and Buck Inn Restau...

My husband I and stayed at the Sunset Lodge for 2 nights while on business in Escanaba. We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to others looking for an affordable yet comfortable accomodations. From the outside, it looks like the rooms might all be the same, but they're not (one of the charms of an quaint older place like this). For example, after a couple hours in our first room, we asked if there might be a room with a larger table to work on, and they seemed happy to transfer us to another, larger room that was ideal and cost just a little bit more. The owners and the cleaning person were friendly and accommodating. And the rooms themselves are basic but clean, with good beds, nice sheets, larger wall-mounted flat screen tvs, a mini-fridge microwave and coffeemaker, and good water pressure. The restaurant right next door is serves very good diner-type food. And best of all, they gave my doggie (dogs are welcome) a rawhide stick, which made her day. ;-)

We really appreciate the informative review of our hotel! Thank you for noting that the rooms are each unique, which is important indeed. Many of our guests make specific room requests for that very reason, and we do our absolute best to accommodate them. I will also note here that not all of our rooms have wall mounted flat screen T.V.s yet, but we are working on it! Thanks again and we hope to see you two and the pup again soon!

We were very happy with our room. It was extremely clean, didn't have any problem with noise and slept well. The people here are lovely and were helpful with suggestions. Will definitley be back when heading across the peninsula again.
