We stayed at the Star on the way home from Houghton/Hancock. We had two rooms, one had newer carpeting, and mine had older carpeting that needed some cleaning, but the bed was comfortable and clean, and the bathrooms were very clean and nice. I would stay there again anytime. The rates were very reasonable, less than half what the Comfort Inn would have charged. We were very pleased with our stay.

We are a couple that Travels a lot and we can truly say that the StarMotel in Manistique was the cleanest motel room whe ever been in it. where you can smell the freshness of the bed sheets. The Staff is so friendly , approchable and very accomodating to us and the kids. The Good thing is that pets are allowed and Coffee is served fresh every morning @ 7.00. The bathrooms were sparkless and every room has air conditioning. So to all the travelers out there if you need a nice warming and clean I mean clean place stop to the StarMotel you will not be sorry.

We only stayed one night, but would have liked to stayed longer and look the area over. The rooms were large and clean & comfortable with good wi-fi for free. A short walk around the back will get you to Lake Michigan, not a swimming beach, but a nice view, there were also some swings for the grandkids. The owners were very friendly.

We come to Manistique to visit relatives a couple times per year, but this was the first time we stayed at the Star Motel. While it isn't fancy, it offered a clean, spacious room, good value ($54/night), a convenient location and lots of privacy.

Our room had a window A/C unit that worked very well. The bathroom appeared to be freshly painted, and there was a mini fridge available in the room. Free Wifi was a total bonus that we hadn't expected - as Canadians in the US, Wifi is great b/c we don't want to rack up roaming fees.

I would definitely stay again, I like the idea of supporting a local family run business - but only if it's clean and well run, which the star motel certainly is.

This is not your 4-5 star motel/hotel, but if you want a place that is clean, very reasonlby priced and easy to find, this is the place. Right on the Lake Michigan shore (they own rights to the lake). We used this motel as a an evening stop while doing the "Lake Michigan Circle Tour". This was the most reasonable motel on our trip. The beds were comfortable, very clean as so was the bathroom. Looked like they just had it redone. Again, nothing fancy, but it served our purposes quite nicely. Would I stay again - Yes.
PS: We went out for a quick bite to eat and went to the Big Boy near the motel. I HAD to have a banana split and when it came I was a little overwhelmed by it's size. I couldn't finish it. Nice clean place too.
