Stopped for a night, accomodation simple but okay and clean (with a bit of "old" smell), had a room with rather neat Native American art though, bed and shower okay. Unfortunately quite some noise from the highway and motorcyclists, needed ear plugs for sleeping. Friendly staff, but don't drink the free coffee, anything is better than this! Reasonably priced breakfast...

This motel is extremely clean and well maintained. In fact, this was the best motel I have ever stayed at. I would definitely stay here again. A couple owns the hotel and they obviously take pride in their business. Check it out the next time you are in Manistique along Lake Michigan.

The room was like new. Everything was clean and spotless. You park at your door. Like all the motels in the area it is located near the highway, but we were no aware of any road noise. The views of Lake Michigan, just across the highway are outstanding.

We chose this 'mom & pop' motel based on the great reviews it had received and are adding to those. Very conveniently located to the great boardwalk and lake/lake views Within walking distance of restaurants and stores. Parking in front of your room made for easy unloading and reloading. Everything decorated simply and so very clean. We will definitely stay...

We did not have a reservation, but figured with it being late September, it wouldn't be a problem. The rooms are very clean and the hotel had a lot of little touches that made the difference. You could really tell that they take pride in the look of the motel. It was right across the street from the boardwalk, which...

Our stay at this roadside motel reminded me of how convenient it is to just get out of your car and walk into your room with your luggage. No hassles. We were fortunate to have it very quiet, no road noise. I like a place clean and this was it. So nice to walk in and see that, just puts...

We have a well behaved lab that travels with us. Sometimes it is a challenge to find acceptable lodging for all concerned. A small yappy dog is welcomed but a quiet large dog who loves to sleep and stay in his cage is classified as not wanted...... This motel had rules but not unreasonable. They accepted the three of us...

This was a great place. Clean, updated rooms. We had a king bed. Small room, new bathroom and nice decor. I would stay here again. The owner was very nice and gave us recommendations for where to eat and what to see.

Everything the five star reviewers are saying is correct. It's a darling place with a great view run by very nice people. What they don't tell you is that the rooms are located less than 100 feet from a very busy road. Think trucks rumbling by all night long. If you are sensitive to noise, I would recommend something farther...

I try to avoid motels and hotels but couldn't this time. I found good reviews of the Northshore motel on line and decided to try it. I highly recommend Northshore over any of the bigger name brands in the neighborhood. The room was clean and everything felt new and remodelled. From the parquet wooden floors to the wooden shelves in...
