Like many other have stated, Larry the owner, was very friendly. Upon check in he asked what we would be doing in the area and gave us some tips and suggestions. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom. A nice high sink (I know a strange thing to point out, but something I noticed and appreciated). Good show pressure. Sure there was only a couple of towels, but Larry had stated if we needed more to just ask. It didn't bother us there wasn't air conditioning. It was actually very refreshing to be able to open up the windows. Plus with the ceiling fan it made for a very comfortable sleep. Nice quiet motel and one we would definitely come back to if ever in the area. Great value for the money, only 55.00 bucks a night.

As other reviewers have commented, there is no A/C but we arrived the second week of September and it was wonderful to be able to open windows, turn on the ceiling fans and enjoy the fresh air. Because it was off the main road, it was quiet. Also, Larry was so hospitable and maintains the property well. Our room was very clean an the building with a complete kitchen was a nice plus. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you are traveling in a large group, request room 19. It is an end unit and has one bedroom with...

Stayed two nights. Room is clean, location in a good area. Larry the owner is very kind and has great suggestions of places to eat and things to do. We drove around to all the waterfalls in the area and really enjoyed our time here. The Terrace is an older motel but lovingly kept and a nice break from the chain motels. We sat on the porch and relaxed. Our dog was welcome and enjoyed his stay. We walked through the neighborhood and over by the lake. Wifi is spotty but close your computer and enjoy the scenery. :) Thanks Larry! Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room, number 1, was comfortable and spacious. No noise problems.

This is a case of you get what you pay for. The Terrace Motel doesn’t have much, but it does have the basics. I liked the fact that you could go in a kitchen and use the appliances, wash dishes and get ice. On the downside, it was really stuffy in our basic room with no air conditioning. And what’s the deal with motels that don’t have blackout curtains?? The owners were nice and yea, I might stay there again.

We love staying at the Terrace Motel when we visit Munising. It is clean and comfortable. Larry, the owner, is a wonderful host. He is very helpful and shares information about places to eat and visit in the Munising area. The motel is located in a quiet neighborhood and very well kept both outside and inside. We enjoy the windows that can be opened to allow fresh air in the rooms. We also like having our car parked right by our room where it is easy to get in and out in nice wide parking spaces. We will stay at the Terrace Motel again when we visit Munising.

Larry, the owner, made our stay excellent. Friendly and outgoing, if you need information on the area, he can give it to you. Word of advice, if Larry doesn’t recommend a place, there is a reason for it. He didn’t mention anything about the Dog Patch, but we went anyways. Big mistake.
It is not the Ritz and the rooms are not loaded with frills, but it is clean, very reasonably priced and quiet. The only downside I can identify is most of the outlets in the room are 2 pronged, instead of 3-pronged grounded plugs.
I will most definitely be staying at the Terrace Motel again!.

I stayed here for the first time last fall. It is a fly by night mom and pop place. Larry is nice but kind of annoying although I think he means well. When the wife and I were planning another trip I told here that we should stay here because it is cheap and close to where we are going before our final destination. When we arrived the first thing we did was sit on the bed. Probably should have left. It was easily the worst bed of all time. Woke up with very sore necks and backs.

My wife's parents used to own a resort in the U.P. so we like to stay at places like this to support the family owners and save a buck or two. However, it was decided that because of this hotel we won't doing that again. spend the extra $20 and get a place that would have a decent bed.

Room Tip: If you are dumb enough to stay here, don't stay in room #2 unless they have replaced the bed.

For those disappointed with the place, some news... and for those who already like it, it's even better. New Serta Regal Suite II plush top queen mattresses are now here.
