“Nice, affordable motel”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

Don't let the outside fool you. This is an older motel which has been very well kept up. Our room was clean and had been recently painted and refurbished. It is close to the highway, but we did not hear any road noise. The owner was friendly, and we really enjoyed our stay!

I was in town for NMU's Family weekend for the 1st time and didn't know where to stay. I called and was immediately made to feel like an "old friend" over the phone. When I arrived I was amazed a how large the room was, and how clean. The little details were very much appreciated. I was also the option of downgrading my room to be even MORE affordable. I will defintely be back. I didn't get a chance to stop in the office on the way out, but will make it a priority next time. Thanks, again!

My husband and I were just here. Spent over a week. We were very pleased with the friendly and home like atmosphere and very clean and confortable. And very accommodating to us as we had a trailer that needed a safe place to be parked, safe clean parking for motorcycles (we had 2). VERY MOTORCYCLE Friendly !!
And for 2 of the nights we had extra family with us, so we needed a larger room....the transition from room to room was so easy, Denise and the staff were so helpful.
Very close to restaurants, gas stations, shopping....and beautiful Marquette downtown and the shores of Lake Superior. And a safe "nieghborhood".
The owners take pride in their business and it shows. To all the staff, Thank You for making our stay enjoyable. We will stay here everytime we visit Marquette.

Have been staying at the Imperial for 20 years. Only place we ever stay. The owners are always friendly and make us feel like family when we are there. The rooms are always clean, and the side area is the quietest. Pool is small, but our kids loved it when they were young. Is a much older Mom and Pop motel, but you should not be disappointed in your accomadations and the price can't be beat. Give them a try and keep them in business.

Room Tip: The side area, away from the highway and pool area are the best bet. Rooms are good size and it se...

Marquette was the first stop on our cross-country road trip. Decided to check the rates at the Imperial Motel and was pleased that it was very reasonable (especially compared to the other nearby hotels we could see prices for online), and was clean.

My only complaint was that a lot of the other guests got up really early (like 5:30am), I assume to go fishing, and so the car noises did wake me up for a bit. However, it was otherwise a nice quiet hotel.

We would definitely stay here again if we're going through Marquette.

The Imperial Motel is a clean, safe, quiet, spotless, nice, no--frills motel in a row of more modern, fancier hotel chains. An excellent value for the price. It does not have a hot breakfast, but a Perkins and a Big Boy restaurant are just down the road. It does have an indoor pool. It is privately owned, the owners are very nice, and the place is incredibly clean, and a bit spartan. The decor is not updated, but it is not overly garish, either. There are convenient restaurants and shopping nearby for drivers. The cost is inexpensive. If you cannot live without up-to-the-minute style and extra shampoos, you may want to stay at a Holiday Inn or something and pay for that. However, if you want a safe, clean, comfortable night's rest, this is a reliably pleasant place to stay. They get much return business. It's a great place for parents of college kids who are attending Northern Michigan University. It is not a party hotel, from what I've seen. Plain, but relaxing, in safe area.
