About
Description
Just Under Went a 12 Room Makeover! Empire Lakeshore Inn is the only hotel located in the quaint little village of Empire, Michigan. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, grocery stores and the famous ...More Empire Beach. We are nestled in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes, with close access to hiking trails, fishing, kayaking and much, much more. Come stay with us in one of our our 12 unique rooms. This old fashion Mom and Pop hotel has undergone many fresh updates but still holds true to that good small town nostalgic feeling. Less

Have you contacted the hotel to ask? I'd try between 11-1 as there seemed to be someone at the front desk at this time.

The rooms are small but clean. There are only double beds here. If you're booking in the greater TC area you'd better book soon.
