“Great up north experience”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Don't let the looks of this place fool you, it is perfect place to enjoy a trip up north. We stayed for three days and are looking forward to futures stays. At arrival we were meet by the owner Larry who made you feel like family. He told us about all the amenities of the hotel, and while there are no air conditioners in any room (which we never needed due to the cool breeze and ceiling fan), the added addition of a community kitchen, sauna, and pool table were great. It was also nice that Larry has area maps and explains were just about everything you would or have time to see is, but if he missed something just ask. Can't wait to visit again.

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. The rates were great!! We paid $65 for a HUGE room. (Room 5) I loved how our room had windows that we could open and a screen door so we had a great breeze. It wasn't the Hyatt but we weren't expecting that. It reminded me of an up north cabin. The room was clean and the area was nice and quiet. The location is great...in a quiet neighborhood but close enough to walk to everything. Larry is a wonderful host. When we arrived he showed us some great places to eat in town and gave us a map. As we were leaving we mentioned that we had planned on going to Tahquamenon Falls, but since it was raining we were going to skip it, he convinced us to go and I'm so glad he did. It was amazing. We also ate where he recommended and it was delicious. I will definitely stay at the Terrace next time we're in Munising and I'll recommend it to all my friends and family. Hotels/Motels have gotten so expensive. It's nice that you can find places like this that are nice and inexpensive. We really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed 2 nights here while exploring the area. A good value for your dollar. Nice location away from the main area of Munising. Larry gave some good recommendations of what were the "must sees" of the area and were to eat.

My wife and I just got back from spending the past 3 nights at the Terrace. Like many of the other reviews I can echo the same great experience that we shared during our stay. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet ( no street noise). The owner is friendly and accommodating and the room rate is by far the best value in the area. The location of the motel is very convenient to every thing in town without the traffic of the downtown area which is only a few blocks away. We are currently looking for property in the area and will be making several more trips to look at real estate. It is nice to know in advance that we can be assured of a great place to stay when in the Alger County/Munising area. Thanks Larry !

A good rate, few unneeded frills, very helpful owners, a location away from traffic and noise......we were very satisfied with your stay at Terrace Motel, and heartily recommend the Pictured Rocks/Munising area for a nice getaway.

My husband & I vacationed a week in Munising staying st the Terrace Motel. It was perfect, clean, quiet and very pleasant. Larry is a great host. He greeted us and immediately provided a map and directions to the closest points of interest. The kitchen area was clean and my husband loved the sauna. I would definitely return.

Room Tip: We were in room 15, nice setting.

Great location for any time of the year. Quiet and within walking distance to just about everything you need. Larry, is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area, and an all around great guy. The motel is an older "Ma & Pop" type motel that has everything you need without all the "fancy hotel" amenities that you usually never use but always pay for at the pricey motels. I have stayed at The Terrace a few times before and the rooms are always very clean and plenty adequate. Nothing misrepresented here and I would have to say that most of the reviews are quite accurate. For the price, location, and the friendly hospitality, it can't be beat!
