Star Motel
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Manistique
Reviewed December 29, 2011

We always stay here when traveling between MI and MN. The Star is always clean and you are greeted by the owner or his Mom. We've traveled this area for forty years, and although it is an older dated establishment, we prefer it to all of the other motels in Manistique. And, it is the only motel on the lake.

Room Tip: We've stayed in many of the rooms. They are all the same except the end units 1, 2, and 3 have t...

We usually stay at another motel in Manistique, but we wanted to try something different. We were really pleased with The Star Motel. The woman that checked us in was very nice. You park right at your door. The room is very clean. The furniture is a little dated, but that is part of the charm. This is the perfect " mom and pop" type motel. The windows were large and on both front and back of the room for cross ventilation. The bathroom was large and very clean. The room also had a small refrigerator. Clean and quiet motel!

If you are looking for a clean, quiet and inexpensive motel on US-2, Star Motel will fit the bill. 1960s charm abounds with the blonde wood furniture and vintage neon sign, and you can't beat waking up to the Lake Michigan shoreline. Like-new shower/tub. Will definitely stay here again.

Like everyone else says here - you get a very clean, comfortable room in a convenient and attractive location. Not the most up-to-date furnishings - but by design, it's a fifties-era motel kept up to date. The bed is comfortable and the rates are great, we had a clean quiet and pleasant stay. Would definitely go back.

I have stayed in Manistique many times ( national chains hotels, all over priced) . Star Motel is clean, great rate, and just fine. No frills, just dated in time. Walk to Lake Michigan in the back yard. Friendly owners, fridge in room, great value. I will stay again. Just give them a try.

The decor is straight out of the 1950s.

The rooms are clean, bright and comfortable and the price is right.

This is a good place to stay for a night while you're on your way to someplace else or good place to stay for a few days if you want to explore the lake.

Rooms have refrigerators and a good wifi network.

No in-room coffee, but you can get it at the office.
