Reviewed 15 August 2013

The room was clean and beds were not completely uncomfortable. Just minutes from Munising (look for Horseshoe Falls on the right as you go into town; you can see it from the road) and right off of M-28. We did not utilize the hot tub or eat the free breakfast, so I can't comment there. The lady at the front desk (middle aged blonde) seemed decent to me but I only dealt with her once.

One thing of importance to note, is there are NO elevators in this two-story hotel. So pack lightly, because you'll be carrying all your crap up the stairs!

Room Tip: Get a room on the 1st floor if you don't want to haul suitcases up the stairs.

I'm just going to say, the the two at the front desk should not be at the front desk.. We ended up not staying at the hotel, so I cannot tell anything about the rooms, but the lady working the front the night we was to stay, accused me of lying and was just plain rude. I don't normally do reviews but really felt that this needed to be put out there, so that others might think twice if they are having to deal with the Super 8 concerning their stay..

Very clean and updated facility. Great bed, great shower, very friendly staff and an exceptional free continental breakfast. The best Super 8 we've ever stayed in.
Rooms were pretty quiet also, even though they were full.

This hotel was great. The rooms were clean and the beds were great. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. The breakfast each morning was good consisting of eggs, sausages, waffles, fruit, etc. We had a very good stay here. It is in a quiet area of town and close to all attractions. The only thing wrong with the hotel is that the water in the shower kept going from hot to cold and you needed to adjust it. The water pressure was great in the shower. We stayed here for four nights and enjoyed it. We will stay here again we go back to the Upper Pennisula.

Very rude middle aged blonde at the desk was condescending and snarky. We are well aware of the no smoking in the room policy, Not only was she short with us she made it a point to say that even if she thought our room "smelled slightly of smoke" she would fine us. Ok we get it. No "thank you" was muttered or "enjoy your stay", just sauntered back to her hovel to be miserable. The next morning; made the mistake of trying to get a mini bottle of shampoo because i didn't want to use the hand soap dispenser in the shower - got ignored for 30 minuets before a housekeeper was kind enough to accomodate. Signs were posted every where in the room "do NOT use towels for wiping luggage you Will be charged" blah blah blah. We became unsure if we could sit in the chair or lay on the bed without a fine or fee. Will not be returning to this hotel, Would like to suggest a course in customer service for the desk staff or an elephant gun full of midol.

Room Tip: Go down the road to the holiday inn!!!!!!!!

The owner at this Super 8 actually works behind the counter and is quite helpful. The location is outside of Munising, but is conveniently located. The breakfast was a deluxe continental, which consisted of eggs, waffles, biscuits and gravy, fruit, etc. I didn't realize there was a pool, but apparently it's pretty nice. The price seemed a tad high, but all lodging in Michigan is pricey during the summer. The only negative things I can find were: 1) the hot water in the shower kept fading in and out and 2) staff inadvertently gave another party our room after we had been there 1 night and they opened the door while I was sitting there. Good thing I was dressed lol. I can honestly say that has never happened before, but thankfully, I was dressed and was just on my laptop. The wifi connection is good too, so no issues there. I would probably stay here again.

Room Tip: There is no elevator and there are 2 floors. Keep that in mind if you have a lot of luggage.
