“Not more than a night.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

After a long drive, we crashed here. It was very basic and affordable. I didn't feel very secure. A few single guys driving contractor trucks were staying in other rooms. If my hubby were along on this trip, I might have felt more confident about staying here, but had an uneasy feeling about the area. The economy must have hit Newberry hard. There are a number of vacant stores. There's a convenience store at the gas station across the street and a drug store up the road. We walked there but were the only people out on foot after 6pm.

The beds were fine, the bathroom was a tight squeeze. Run the water for a minute before getting in. It started out rust colored and ran to clear after a bit. The walls of the shower aren't molded. The red color in the grout is probably rust. (or perhaps the same stuff that's in the Tahquamenon river?)

Agree with other reviewers. Our room was small, had the bare minimum furnishings, and no amenities. But it was clean and had wi-fi. Can't be beat for the price if you just need a decent place for 1 night.

We had stopped at 2 other motels before choosing this one. The other motels in town wanted around $70-110 for the night. This one was $50, neat and tidy with a moderately comfortable bed. The furnishings and fixtures were in good repair. It did not come with breakfast but considering the difference in price, we gladly forfeited the food. We stayed in the main building. I did not hear anyone until morning and then only murmurs.

Room was clean and bathroom was very nice. Room was small and in good condition and great value for the price. I stayed in the Park-A-Way Motel which is joined with the Evening Star. They are side by side and share the same office/owner. They also allow pets.

My husband and I plus our 1 month old son stayed here for two nights in late October. The rooms and bathrooms are VERY clean. The owner was very nice and even gave my husband the run down of the other hotels in the area telling us which ones would be nicer (but cost more). We decided to stay there because of price and were VERY pleased. Our stay was great and we plan on staying here again in the future.
The only "cons" are ( if they could be called cons) the rooms are very basic and small. We did manage to fit our pack n' play in just fine. It definitely has no frills such as shampoo or continental breakfast. In the main building you can hear through the room doors, but it isn't much different then many other hotels.
Would definitely recommend this place!

My husband and I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. Very quiet, and quaint. Rooms are basic, clean, and comfortable. Internet access is available, and the pool was clean and not over-crowded. I would highly recommend The Evening Star to anyone who is looking for an affordable, comfy place to stay while in Newberry.
