Nelsen's Motel in Bailey's Harbor

Does anyone have any experience staying at, or knowledge about, Nelsen's Lakeview Motel in Bailey's Harbor? All that I can find is an older website, and I cannot find any reviews or comments anywhere else on the internet! It looks small (6 units), but the prices are right for being right on Lake Michigan.

I think it caters to fishermen. The motel is behind Nelson's hardware store, right next to the village dock. The back is paved with big boat parking spaces.

Phone the Bailey's Harbor Visitor Center and the motel and ask them about the motel.

haven't heard of it but nearby is The Beachfront Inn just featured on Hotel Impossible and they've even made several improvements since May and get good solid reviews:


The view is amazing and the prices though hiked since Hotel Impossible are probably still decent. It is pet friendly so I don't know if that's helpful...or not but just a suggestion or thought.

Nelsen's looked nice from first glance but I might be bothered by no reviews. On the other hand checking it out and reviewing it would be a good start too.

In checking out their prices, Beachfront Inn has very reasonable prices ($104 for sideview; $129 lakeview and $182 for a suite, as I recall).

Dang, I wish I had seen this when I was there yesterday. I looked at the website. The cuffed jeans shorts and hair style the woman has reminds me of the 80's so I'm not sure how old those are. I don't remember seeing it, but I wasn't looking. I also see there aren't any reviews, hmm.

Nelson's motel units have always had the look of a "no-frills" type of lodging to me. But I've never stayed there, so I couldn't say for sure. I would not expect anything fancy, if you do book there.
