“Not bad”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

I agree with comments regarding the bathroom - shower stall needs at least a small shelf for toiletries and maybe a shelf by the sink. Extra soap and shampoo for the shower would be nice, however, many mom & pops do not have hair dryers, so I always bring my own. The curtains do need replacing. Otherwise the room was fine. Our king bed was fairly comfortable and I slept well despite being right next to the highway. The price was fine for summertime - much lower than the Econolodge next door. The front desk person was friendly and helpful.

We had stayed here in the past prior to the "remodeling." What has changed? Outside appears to have new siding, new outside doors, room has faux wood flooring in the bathroom & part of the sleeping area, & bathrooms have been redone. However, the carpet was old & stained. Curtains would not close completely & the rubber backings had holes in it. Whoever recommended the remodeling of the bathroom were not thinking of a motel room....no where to place toiletries, shower had no shelf to place soap/shampoo/washcloth. Old 19" TV. The place smelled incredibly musty! Old AC/heater was loud & only seemed to increase the musty odor. No hair dryer, shampoos, one 1/2 filled roll of toilet paper. Of course, with remodeling comes a higher price...$89.59! NOT worth the price at all! We love the Munising area, but next time we will stay at a different motel close to town. BTW - the place is once again for sale.

Room Tip: All face the highway. If on the 1st floor, will be disturbed by 2nd floor residents clomping around...

We tried to book something kind of last minute during 'high season' in the UP, and didn't have any luck with traditional sites. My sister lives in Munising and suggested a locally owned place that might not show up on other sites. We called, asked for an overnight stay, with two dogs, and got a very friendly, accommodating response. We also asked for a late night check in, and (as a small town girl), got the perfect reply: "here's your room number, and we'll make sure everything is ok, and leave the door open with the light on. don't worry about checking in -- we'll take care of that the next morning". gotta love small towns. it's not fancy, but clean and perfect for a place to spend the night. most everything in Munising is within walking distance (except the waterfalls, and best smoked fish place, and maybe even indulging in pasties). I like staying in places that are not state/national chains. if you do, find something else, but this is just fine with me.

Room Tip: two floors. upstairs rooms need to go through the office/main floor inside to the second floor, but...

We stayed 2 nights at this great motel. The people were all very friendly, it is pet friendly, and the housekeeping staff was also very nice. The room was clean and affordable. Very convenient location. We had a great time and would definitely go back to this great motel!!!

Mainly positive actually the only negative is not their fault but the shell gas station across the street keeps very bright light on all night. Doors have decorative window which lets in light very bright. Clean great location in city great staff would be a return guest 100%

Pet friendly and very clean. The second floor rooms are bigger although there is a definite slant to the floor. AC worked well and had nice refrigerator. Our room had two queen beds and plenty of room for the dog. It is a busy street, but calms down at night. Walked to places to eat. The stairs to the second floor is narrow with a door to manually open at the top so pack light. Friends stayed on first floor, rooms a lot smaller. I would easily stay there again.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are bigger, but you need to haul your stuff up a narrow stairs.

Visited for one night on July 2. The location is nice, right downtown and maybe a block or so from the water - although you would have to cross a fairly busy street if walking. The hotel is two-story - the upstairs rooms have a small refrigerator and a microwave - no coffee maker. Well kept motel with a comfortable King-size bed in my room. No breakfast options but many nearby. Friendly staff, very accommodating. No pool.
