After a long drive and full day, we arrived late (10:15pm). Boy, did we regret it! The sunset is truly amazing from this location and we caught the end of it. Sunset at 10 and rise at 5ish.
We stayed in rm 110 - 2 room queen beds with a LR and shared bath. Fridge, microwave. Very clean. The pics of this room make it look dark and rustic - unappealing actually. Upon arrival, I realized that it fit the surroundings. Although the decor was rustic, the beds, linens and bath were not. It was simple but had everything you could need for a comfortable stay.
I spent the morning on their crooked boat dock over shallow, peaceful Lake Superior. It was heavenly. This location is so convenient. You are walking distance to a number of the falls and just outside of town - enough to feel the peace and quiet of being near a national lakeshore. This is a nature lover's paradise. The town of Munising isn't all that charming until you meet the people in the cafe or shops. We only stayed a night and that was a big mistake. Munising and the surrounding area has much to offer. This motel is a winner, but like most of the places we stayed in UP, is not for luxury travelers. The cleanliness and the scenery is the luxury here.
It was hot while we were here and the window A/C unit was sufficient. There was a little noise from other guests.
