“Unique room in the motel”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

This motel has themed rooms, we chose the American Indian one for one night. Very cosy with a lovely bedspread quilt on the bed.

Enjoyed the shower in the bathroom, very good water pressure and temperature. Room heating was good as we turned it up when we went in and it took no time at all to be warm.

Simple and sweet, we liked it.

Room Tip: All rooms face the lake so can't pick a bad one!

This is an older local motel, but the rooms have been freshened up somewhat. The room and bathroom were both very clean. Bed was comfortable. Had a small fridge and a flat screen TV. Owners very friendly and helpful. I have stayed at both of the "chain" hotels in Manistique in the past, and overall the Northshore is MUCH better than either of the "chains". And the price is better too. If you are good with a basic, very clean, reasonably priced room this is your choice.

We had a one night stay in Manistique on our way to a college reunion and chose this small, kind of old-fashioned quintessential motel across the road from Lake Michigan. Nice view. Managers (owners?) were a very nice couple who were helpful when the power went out due to a blown transformer down the road.

Charming rooms renovated by the owners. My daughter and I stayed there for 2 nights while visiting the UP September 27 and 28, 2013. Home made cinnamon bread and good coffee. Will stay there again if we are driving by. Good beds, quiet and all spectacularly clean. We didn't have to share a lamp, had our own on tiny bed stands, which is good and unusual. The owners are friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the motel.

While I thought it might be a bit noisy, with an exterior road-facing entrance door, it was very quiet and we had a great night's sleep. As all of the reviews extol, the rooms and bathrooms are very clean and have adequate amenities(TV, Refrig, etc.). Woke up to a see a great sunrise and strolled across the highway to take some pictures of it on the beach. Would highly recommend this motel and will stop here again when in the UP!

The rooms are clean & recently redone & all have a view of Lake Michigan across the street. The bathroom is pretty small & "bare bones" but the tub & shower seem serviceable. No breakfast is included as this is a small property - therefore the price for a night's stay is very reasonable. A new flat screen TV is in each room, AC, refrig., coffee maker, 2 dressers, & a comfortable bed. Not bad for a night's stay.

Room Tip: look on line to see the room selection - they all face the highway so there is some noise

My husband and I were in town for a funeral and found them on Trip Advisor. The room was clean, and since it was their pet room they even added a air purifier for us. They are really friendly and helpful. They are in the process of slowly redoing the motel and it looks great. We will definitely stay there again.
