“I would stay again.”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

We had reservations for 2 nights, and we understood the cancellation policy. We left after one night--because of the weather and change of plans, not the facility. Larry told us that if he could rent the room, we would get a refund. Well, he is a man of his word. He even had to call to get our card number because he had it written incorrectly. He could have easily kept our money--I love the honesty.

We had a room that could accommodate 5 for only $70. The room was clean enough, but a little old. I liked that they had a kitchen available for everyone's use, but the fridge was too full to even use. That is just the way it is. We could easily have prepared a meal or snack; that is a money saver.

The only 3 stars instead of 4 is for the kind of run down nature of the room. Out of 4 bulbs in the bath, only 1 worked. There was one switch knob for the 2 lamps--had to share. There was a definite lack of flat surfaces--no place to put things in the bath. In a room for 5 you kind of need someplace for bathroom stuff. The curtains were pretty ratty and the futon might be a good extra bed but a really uncomfortable place to sit.

All that said, it is a good value if you don't expect too much.

My two kids and I spent five days at the Terrace Motel. Very quiet area and not far from town. The room was clean and had plenty of space. Larry was very helpful by giving us a list of options on places to see and the best places to eat. There was so much to do and so little time. We had a very positive experience! Thanks Larry, we will be back again.

Great little local motel located in a residential neighborhood. Nice and quiet, but close to all the local attractions. Our room was clean and beds were very comfortable. Larry welcomed us right away and offered information on all the hiking and activities available. We would definitely stay here again. It was nice to be stay at a cute little motel that wasn't part of a national chain. The price was great too! We didn't mind not being right on Lake Superior since we were out in that area all during the day. Plus, there is free wi-fi!

This place was clean and spacious. For $65 we had two double beds and a separate "living room" with a futon and a television. Although we didn't use it, the shared kitchen was a nice convenience. There was also a sauna and a pool table for guest use.
The décor was a bit old and the carpet needed replacing but nevertheless everything was clean.
The bed sheets were very crisp and smooth! Location was great. We walked to a nice restaurant from our motel room.

I just happened to stumble upon The Terrace on tripadvisor looking for a good place to stay while visiting Pictured Rocks in Munising. What happened next is still quite shocking to me!! I stumbled upon a link on The Terrace website for Pictured Rocks Weddings and thought, man, would that ever be nice. I sent an email to the owner, Larry, asking how much of a notice he would need to marry my fiance and I (who've been engaged for 5 yrs and were not planning a wedding in any kind of way)??? We had already planned on coming up on Sunday, August 18th for only a day or two and I sent this, now rather important, email on the Thursday before, giving Larry a whopping 3 days notice!!! Lo and Behold, to my astonishment, we have now been married for a little over 2 days as I write this!!! If that's not accommodating your guests, I don't know what is!?!?!?! Larry immediately reserved us his only room available and awaited our arrival on Sunday to marry us at the beautiful Wagner Falls!! Enough about my crazy adventure and onto the good stuff.... the Terrace!! Our room was very neat, clean, smelled fresh and had the best water pressure in the shower!! There was a community type area with a full kitchen available for guests, pool table, sauna, and even a fire pit to build your own campfire out back! There's seating outside of your room to relax and enjoy a warm summers night and mingle with your neighbors while watching for the Northern Stars. You also have access to the ice machine, vending machine and lets not forget the free coffee in the morning!! Larry also makes sure that his guests are given a map of the area and highlights all of the best restaurants, attractions, things to see and do, etc. We've travelled to many, many places around the U.S. and have never been given the hospitality you will find at the Terrace!! We'll definitely be back again!!
