I expected more for the price. Room wasn't filthy, but not spotless either. Beds are dated, nice having fridge but it was loud. Staff was friendly. Local beach nice for swims with kids. I realiz this is a local motel, but in dire need of upgrades - paint peeling, beds not super comfortable.

My family and I stayed at the Sunset Lodge for a weekend to do some fishing. The price was reasonable and the room was clean and had comfortable beds. There were 2 fish cleaning stations and well as room to park the boat and trailer behind the motel.

Was pleasantly surprised by my stay at the lodge. Room was clean and well maintained. Bathroom was stocked with the basic amenities including clean towels. The bed was comfortable and although they provided a free continental breakfast at the main office in the morning I sadly couldn't partake nor review. Would definitely reccommend a stay here if you're ever driving...

A great place for a stop over. Easy on/off the road. Clean and neat with very friendly and helpful staff. The girl at the front desk listened to what we wanted to do, and gave us great suggestions. Our stay in Escanaba was much more pleasant than were expecting. I would stay here again.

The Sunset Lodge was a great motel. The owner treated me as if she had known me for years. Very professional and personable. The room was very clean and comfortable. The motel is located in the heart of everything.

At first glance, the Sunset Lodge looks a little worse for wear. The doors to each room could use a little paint and the main office is cramped and utilitarian. I'll admit that if I saw this place from the road, I'd probably keep driving. That would be a mistake. The Sunset Lodge provides outstanding value. The rooms are a...

When first arriving at the Sunrise we realized it was the same place we stayed 2 years ago. While it has improved somewhat, the price has also significantly increased. 2 years ago the low price made sense. Not so much with the higher price now. While the economy room was somewhat redone and the bed was very good, the highway...

you will sleep uncomfortable, this is a crappie hotel, wifi doesn't work. The rooms are too close together you can hear everything on the other rooms. Parking lot sucks. The shower is super tight and the air conditioning is too loud!!

Had a hard time finding a place with a good review. This was a gem! While the accommodations are not fancy, the room was VERY clean. The staff was great! The outside is deceiving .... I was pleasantly surprised!!! Definitely a hidden gem!!!

Reviewed 3 August 2016

Not acceptable, old, run down and dingy. Too small, like a closet more than a room. Not sure why anyone would try to promote this motel to anyone. I usually stay at Marriott or Hilton, none of which are in this town. This is not so much a room as it is a small hut. Not recommended to anyone.

We sincerely appreciate your feedback! We do have 8 economy rooms with one full bed which are much smaller and less expensive then our rooms with one queen or 2 double beds. We have completely renovated half of our one queen and 2 double rooms and we have plans to complete the renovations on those by summer of 2017. Next...
