An amazing find for a very affordable price. We stayed in room no 102. The room was recently renovated. The room was large, the mattress was new, the furnitures, TV, refrigerator and all things were new. The bathroom was large and extremely clean. The mirrors were pristine.

The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. Overall, this is the best motel I have every stayed. The value for money is too good. Don't be sceptical based on the outside look of the Motel

Room Tip: Room 102 is recently renovated

I just left this place a few hours ago within in a span of two years when I first started our company in the UP this hotel had a different owner when I first stayed there the owner was very friendly and professional so I made it my home away from home until now. The new owners for some reason have totally different management skills now your charged an extra $10.00 for your pet to for a pet friendly place and to add the insult if you use a credit card they not only swap with their credit card machine (which is understandable) they than write the number, expiration date and security code on the back of the check-in receipt if the credit card company thought that was safe it would print that same information. That was my red flag. So when I woke up the next morning I medicated in my car again I would like to mention for two years before this incident there was no issues period no issues. Again I have never seen them write my credit card information if I hade it would have been the same issue than. At check-out I simply asked if I could have me credit card information back instead they smelled smoke on my clothes and said (" He was smoking dope in the room") two years wow. To further add to the insult they called the police because I simply wanted my credit information back. How unfair, rude and hateful. I will say this I have always left a tip in the room if I had to apologize to anyone is the house keeper this was the first time I didn't leave one sorry for that. I wish your hotel the best happy holidays to you and your family unfortunately this concludes my business with this hotel Hiawatha Motel in Escanaba, MI I cant speak for the Franchise chain but to be optimistic I'm sure the service is a lot nicer. Good luck

Room Tip: all rooms I have been all in great condition

Friendly Owner checked me in , able to park in front of the door , clean room and Motel reasonably quiet - rate was great - only complaint was the quality of the television - it was unwatchable - probably a few years old - screen resolution was terrible and had to physically bang on it once to get a picture
WIFI was strong

I will stay there again

Thank you for your rating and review. We have upgraded almost all of the t.v's microwaves and refridgerators ( only three rooms left needing new ones) and have completly remodled seven rooms. We are working very hard to update and offer the highest standards of cleanliness and customer service. We hope you come through again and see all of the improvments.

Stayed here one night on our way to Marquette. We were very happy with the room. The wifi was great and kept connected during our visit. There are plenty of restaurants near by and within walking distance. We felt very safe here and encountered no problems. We just needed a place to sleep so it fit the bill.
