“Clean,comfortable ,quality service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We chose to stay at Northshore based on reviews seen here on Tripadvisor ,and we were not disappointed . The owners take pride in providing quality service ,and helpful amenities . Our room had a wonderful King size bed and flat screen TV,along with mini fridge .Room was very clean and well maintained. Manistique is a good location for visiting sites on the eastern Upper Peninsula .We ended up staying an extra night because there was still so much to see and do . Had a wonderful breakfast at "Cedar Street cafe" ! The best french toast I have ever had ! We also ate supper in town, at "Floyds" ,super nice owner and great home cooked meal .

Room Tip: request the room with new King size bed ,worth the extra few bucks .

It is so nice to pull your car up to your room to unpack. The room is very clean with everything you need to include free WiFi. In the morning there is fresh bread and coffee to get you started on your way. There were many hotels/motels to choose from and I am glad we looked at tripadvisor and stayed here.

Love this little (12 room) motel on the shores of Lake Michigan. Very affordable with a beautiful water view (across the street) from our extremely comfortable king sized bed. Clean, quaint and well appointed, the owners make you feel so welcome, and great care is taken to ensure a wonderful stay. New flat screen TV's are mounted at the perfect height for viewing from the bed. Each room is newly decorated and themed; no two are alike! When we return to the UP, this gem will definitely be on our list of stops!

Granted there are not a lot of options for hotels in Manistique, but I can certainly see why this place ranks number 1. It would surpass many chain hotels in cleanliness, ambiance, amenities (fridge, a/c, coffee,). We booked two rooms that morning for a very reasonable price and the owners were both on hand to give us a warm welcome.
The room we had (king) was quite large, nautical decor with a large bathroom and nice tub.
We had traveled several nights on a touring trip around the Lake and this was by far our favorite place. Highly recommend.

Very clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. My room was very clean and nicely decorated. They thought of everything, from towels for removing makeup to leaving mints on the nightstand. I would stay here again and would recommend this motel in a heartbeat. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Papkey!

Stayed just one night in early August. staff were very nice and rate was reasonable for just dropping in. room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Mini fridge was nice. breakfast was just enough for an early start. wish I could have stayed a day to enjoy the Lake Mich beach across the road.

This captures perfectly the experience of a small motel run as a family business. It has been recently updated so was IMMACULATE. The room was small but adequate since we were there for only a night as we traveled through the UP. I would definitely recommend this and will stay there again. It is on the boardwalk that goes through Manistique along Lake Michigan. The only downside that I have is that the room was a bit noisy from US 2 traffic. These small motels however are a great value for those who are traveling and need a good night's rest. By the way, the coffee and toast in the morning was AWESOME and appreciated.
