My husband and I spent 4 days in the area. We stayed in a cottage. What a wonderful, convenient and friendly place to stay. Bathroom was a little tight, but the rest was great! Of course the locks are right across the street. We spent every night walking the streets window shopping and eating at local businesses. Always felt safe,...

First time experience at this motel. Extra clean and friendly. Parking a little tight at the cabins, but OK. Walking distance to great restaurants, boat viewing and shops. Great breakfast in the morning. A winner all around.

We stayed at Lockview just one night on our short trip through the UP. We were so pleased with the cleanliness of the room and friendliness of the staff. Everything about our stay was great. I was impressed to notice that in the breakfast area, the staff person washed each table as guests got up and left, and before others...

I could tell from past guest reviews that this would be a nice old retro hotel, and we were not disappointed! The rooms were small, but clean & comfortable. One of our rooms had a noisy AC unit in it, but the other room was okay. The continental breakfast was very minimal, and the breakfast nook quite tiny. The hotel...

I stayed in the main hotel in the first floor room overlooking the locks. Despite being warned by staff that it can be noisy due to the sidewalk traffic outside, it was quiet and peaceful. The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean, air conditioning and heater both worked well, and the staff was helpful and friendly. The room...
