I have stayed here a number of times on business. The manager is "hands on" and very good!
The rooms are spotless and well cared for. The breakfast selection was very good for the price of the room. Parking was also very good around the building.

Night manager was not in a good mood for some reason. Very short with answers to questions; not friendly. Asked about the rewards program and were told, it had to be done online, when in fact, the ad said coluld be done right at the desk "in seconds." Anyway, went online. The motel has a senior discount, which is nice. Room had two queens and was very clean. Only soap in the shower, no shampoo or conditioner. No elevator to second floor, had to carry luggage up to second floor. Motel is 3 miles from the downtown area & dock to Pictured Rock cruise. Continental breakfast was good; typical waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits, yogurt, juice, coffee, fruit (apples were green inside), cereal & milk. Price was right. About what you would expect from a Motel 8, clean room and continental breakfast. Minor thing, but shower in the evening was barely warm; wonder if they turn the water heater down at night?

We had made reservations at this hotel because my boyfriend had a mountain bike race in Munising. We checked in and as soon as we got into the room the phone rang and the front desk lady said that we could not have a bike in the room. I said it's a $10,000 bike we aren't leaving it outside. She said it was their policy. My boyfriend went downstairs as we have never had this problem at any other hotels throughout the state he went to talk to her and she called him a "whiny baby" and was VERY rude to him. So we went down to Days Inn and checked in...and the bike didn't damage their rooms in any way..imagine that.
Just want to spread the word on Super 8's horrible customer service and their no bikes policy (seeing that there were hundreds of people in this race it's good to have a heads up on these sorts of things BEFORE you book the room)

Room Tip: Also no pool just a whirlpool

Actually the girlfriends mother made the reservation and nothing was ever said about a bike. We have had issuse with people bringing bikes in guests rooms, We have all new carpeting and we are a very clean hotel and bikes ride on dirt trails and roads so they bring dirt in rooms. You had plenty of room in your mini van and you need to respect the hotel and need to check this out before making reservations yourself.

The hotel is an average Super 8, not the greatest or cleanest but the rooms were roomy, the lobby was clean and the staff was friendly. We asked to check in early and the staff did what they could to get us into our room. There was a slight smell in our room but nothing that we ever worried about. It is about a 5 minute drive from downtown. The spa was really nice and we had it all to ourselves for about an hour. I would stay here again.

This was the only hotel we could find near Munising last-minute and we opted for the three queen bed on the second floor even though we were only two people. It was nearly as big as our Manhattan apartment. The first floor one smelled of cigarette smoke, but both rooms were clean. (We're non-smokers.)

Rooms are dark and vintage 1960s. There are even buzzing lights in the hallway. No complaints, though, as the room was very quiet. We were not facing the highway. The beds are hard, and the pillows are uncomfortable, but it was good for the price, under $150 with tax.

Towels were fine, as was the bedding, and there were lots of clothes hangers, clean surfaces to put toiletries and such. Luggage racks, too. A nearby washer-dryer was a nice amenity as well. Air conditioning was good.

Friendly check-in, too, and no objections when we asked to see the rooms. As another poster said, there are no elevators, so opt for a first-floor room if you can't make it up the stairs with luggage.

It was only a 10-minute drive to Munising.

Room Tip: Go with the second floor if you can use stairs. Ask for a room that's not near the ice machine...
