Our family (husband, wife, 3 boys aged 9-14) stayed here last week for 2 nights. Our first impression was fine, but every part of stay here surprised us with happiness! Our room (110) was very clean and spacious, with a living area (including a pull-out couch) and two bedrooms with closing doors. It had the basic amenities of a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. We stayed during a UP heat wave (90+ degrees every day) but the lack of central air was not a problem, as the screen door provided pleasant breezes off the bay, and each bedroom had an A/C unit.
After checking in with the kind front desk attendant, our boys spotted the shuffle board game by the water's break wall and borrowed the equipment to play while we unpacked. The front desk also offered ice, snacks & drinks (for a small charge), and board games to borrow. The grounds included a small, sandy beach, a play structure for younger kids, a porch swing, chairs and tables by the water, and a grill. Oh, and whole lot of ambiance. The "Sunset" part of the motel's name is quite fitting, as the sunset each night was spectacular! I also personally loved how all of the folks staying there would congregate at the chairs on the patio or by the water to take in the setting sun.
The location for us was ideal, as there were several beaches, waterfalls, and rivers within a very short driving distance. Munising is a small town, but we loved its charm and conveniences for everything we needed. Having stayed in numerous hotels/motels in our lifetime, the Sunset Motel on the Bay was definitely one of our all-time favorites because it became part of the memories of our whole trip to the UP. We highly recommend a stay here!
