“Really nice pet friendly motel. Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2010

This was an impromptu fall foliage trip to northern michigan with our greyhound. Really appreciated that they had certain rooms for pets and how well kept and clean everything was! We especially noticed their attention to details, like: a motion light on the outside, solar lights along the walkway, small refridgerator and microwave in room, fall decorations outside the rooms and even a remote for the air conditioner! Everything smelled so good too - thanks to the owners for all they do. The price was excellent and it was close to the Sleeping Bear National Park and Boone's Long Lake Inn - so what more could one ask for?

stayed here based on the reviews. the amenities were as expected. This place was CLEAN to start with and that is the MOST impt. aspect of any critique given all the news about bedbugs these days! the staff very nice!

but to put things in perspective, the walls are REALLY thin. The couple next door snored all night and i heard it every night i was there.
The beds have seen better days, not bad but definate sags in the center of the beds which is a pet peeve of mine so this may not bother everyone.

I was there for 3 nights and the room never saw a vaccuum while i was there - lots of leaves came in with shoes as the weather was not the best, no mat outside the door to wipe feet.
I expected highway noise and got it, but it calmed down quite a bit at night and wasn't a problem
location was convenient but for where i went i probably should have stayed in Empire.
i wouldn't discourage anyone from staying here but it has its idiocinracies....

My husband and I stayed here last weekend and had a lovely time. The rooms are furnished with your standard motel furniture, except it is immaculate. I even felt comfortable walking in my bare feet. Spotless. You could tell even the bedspread had been washed.

Great location close to all the tourist attractions for Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Crystal Lake, Interlochen, the Leelanau Peninsula, Platte River, etc. Very friendly owners, great pricing (especially for the area, which is priced ridiculously!). We will definitely be staying here again.

The only thing I would say...well, not negatively, but more as a caveat is that if you are staying in one of the rooms at the back of the motel, I believe the water heater is shared with the other rooms. I had times of freezing cold bursts when I was taking a shower that I assume were from another room using the hot water. Honestly, that wasn't a big issue though. I LOVED the fact that their hot water is HOT and there was plenty of it! When I want a hot shower, I want it hot, not lukewarm and you find the temperature of the water in many hotels set to lukewarm. Do be careful if you have kids - it's seriously hot.

Absolutely recommended!

I LOVED this motel! The proprietors were very attentive and helpful. The motel itself had a fresh coat of paint and was very clean. It is right next to the Cherry Bowl Drive-in Theater. Prices were excellent, they also offered a military discount (the only hotel to offer that on our 7 day trip). A great low-key place to stay.

Me and my fiance'e stayed with Chris and her husband Bob for four nights recently and alll I can say is WE CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK. The cleanliness of the rooms and the proximity to EVERYTHING is second to none. On our last night there we fired up the grill and had a great cookout. Later that evening while my lady was watching a little tv I headed to the fire pit (they supply the wood)and was joined by Bob -Chris's husband. My self and Bob sat amongst the fire and reminised about growing up in Michigan and all the beauty the state has to offer. It was as if I had known Bob for years.Soon thereafter me and my fiance'e finished our night with a few good old fashion smore's.

Thanks, BOB & CHRIS
keep up the great hospitality

The Honor Motel was clean and affordable. The owners, Bob and Chris, went out of their way to may our stay a wonderful memory. My sister and her family of six stayed in the cabin with three beds and my husband and son stayed in room 4. Plenty of room to move around and did not hear any of our "neighbors". We used the firepit in back and were surprised when we found out the Honor Motel supplied the wood. We had a great time and were not far from any of the attractions.
