Read all the reviews for hotels in Munising. Chose Sunset strictly for the ambience - a wonderful view of Lake Superior from their cozy lawn filled with comfy chairs. But it wasn't their fault that it was a rainy day, so no sunset view! We had Room 101 which was right next to the office, and the only room with...

We spent the night here. It would have been great to grill out but we were traveling. Everything is set up for eating outdoors. Beautiful view. Nice staff. Room was nice and clean. Would go back. On the outskirts of the city so we needed to drive back and get food for our dinner.

We are so happy to know you'll visit us again. Our grills are always ready to use. We provide the charcoal and lighter fluid. We also have grilling utensils.

Just returned from a 5 night stay and it was wonderful! We had a second floor room with a deck in front and was great. Our room had a kitchenette with stove. They have charcoal grills and provide the charcoal, and grill tools. Would definitely recommend!

Great accommodations on the Bay! Customer service was second to none especially considering our vacation turned into the trip from hell! Pam was incredible helping us deal with the dilemmas life chose to throw our way!

We rented one of the 3 bed vacation rentals. It was clean but a litte dated. Kitchen well appointed and useful. Washer and dryer was even more useful, but it would have been nice to have a little detergent available. Location was peaceful. Tons of towels

Nice. Clean. Older but with all the amenities. Great waterfront location. Loved watching the sunsets over the bay. Motel provides lawn furniture and grills right on the bay. Quiet. Location close to Munising falls and hiking trails. Friendly staff. We'll definitely be back.

What a great place to stay in the U.P. The owner could not have been more professional and gracious. We had a medical emergency and had to check out early, he refunded our money for that night, which he surely did not have to do, but we want to thank him for his understanding. Now THAT is U.P. hospitality,,we WILL...

Sunset is an older property but it still met all my requirements. The room was spotless, shower was good, bed was great and it's locally owned (always a plus for me). A lawn is across from the parking area with chairs and tables and it's right on the water. Great view and a chance to relax and enjoy the magnificent...
