“Nice, simple accommodations with great view of the big lake.”
Reviewed July 9, 2009

Stayed in the newer two-story building toward the rear on the second floor. Room was very clean, bed comfortable, bathroom adequate, balcony offered view of Lake Superior across the road. Breakfast is in a separate room from the lobby and was your basic breakfast food items. Great value for the price.

Got there on a saturday afternoon, was given a room. Got to the room, and it wasnt ready, there were beer cans all over the room and the place was trashed. The lady at the front desk gave us another room, and it was clean. BUT---the heat didnt work. It was blowing at a constant 53 degrees, and being in the single digits outside, that wasnt ok. She brought us a portable space heater, and that was fine. Overall its a decent place to stay...but being in such a prime location, and with the crappy economy, they should try and make this place perfect....

We needed a pet-friendly place to stay and we chose this spot. We checked the room before we checked in and it had no nasty smells and the mattress was nice. The room was average size, we had an upper room. It has an unblocked view of the lake so we saw a beautiful sunrise when we were there.

We tried to get one of the "cabin" type across the way but the hotel was all booked up so that is another good sign. It was packed the two days we were there. The room did not have an iron board so the front desk sent us one to use.

Overall it was a very nice place to stay for the price. I would definately go back to this hotel. It had a breakfast nook for the continential breakfast. The staff was very friendly.

We are staying at the Econo Lodge Lakeside right now. We are here to see our son at NMU. They are in the middle of a massive upgrade here. Our room is small, yet has everything we could need! We have a queen sized bed, a table and chairs, a bathroom with a tub/shower combination, and a sink both inside and just outside of the bathroom. There is a continental breakfast in a nice nook inside the main building. There is no pool or spa, but for the money, this place is great! The management are also very nice. If you're here to visit with family, then this is the place to stay! We even brought along our dog, and the are pet friendly. We will definitely be staying here whenever we come to Marquette.

  • Liked — Pet friendly, drive up to room
  • Disliked — Not a thing!

This could be a nice place to stay if they cleaned it up. The room we were in was a smoking room so I expected it to smell like smoke, but this room stunk! It had the smell of body odor mixed with very strong smoke smell. The lamp shades looked like they had never been dusted and we found dirty towels in our room from the last people.

The room was advertised as "queen size". I thought they meant the bed and when we found only a double we complained.. When we mentioned that the bed was too small we were told all there beds are double...we had a queen size room. The room was bigger because there was only one bed in it.

There was no way to block out the light coming from the parking lot so it was as bright as day time in the middle of the night.

For the price we paid for this room I was expecting it to be at least clean. This is one motel I will never go back too!

  • Liked — The location if you could run fast enough across the street to the beach
  • Disliked — The smell! This was the stinkiest room I had ever been in!

My son and I stayed here a couple days while we checked out NMU.
The restaurant and lounge are closed. The motel is just a few (3-5) minutes from restaurants, shopping and campus. The lake is across a highway, but it's a great view of this great lake. This is not a five star place,.but f or the money it may be the best deal in Marquette. The guy at the front desk was friendly, gave us good directions and good suggestions for things to see and places to eat. I plan to stay here again if I end up visiting my son at NMU.

My husband and I stayed 1 night at this hotel. It was very dated inside with mismatched furniture. The floors creaked and there was masking tape on the windows from old painting. Definately not what it
used to be. The restaurant was closed.
