Nothing fancy, but all we needed and we were very happy with this motel. It is in a quiet neighborhood off the highway but easy to find. The room was clean and had recently been refurbished. They have a public area with a sauna, refrigerator, microwave, and a nice pool table which we didn't use but could be very handy. As other reviewers have said, the owner is very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the Terrace on a recent UP tour. Larry is terriffic!!! He is very proud of his Motel and it shows. The rooms are old but well cared for and very clean. He has a nice game room with a sauna and kitchen. The view of the harbor is nice and he couldn't be more helpful or cordial. You are definitely an accomadated guest.
The AARP rate was under $50!!! This room was cleaner and showed more pride than our room in the Grand Hotel which we stayed in on this trip.
The Motel is an easy and pleasant walk to downtown
You could pay more elsewhere but i don't know why you would.

We recently returned from a trip to the U.P. Stayed overnight at the Terrace Motel and had a wonderful stay. We found the rooms simple, but clean and efficient. The owner (Larry) was superbly helpful at every step of the way! Pride of ownership is obvious and we will return many more times when traveling north to visit Michigan. He provided us with information about where to eat, which Falls to see and accomodated our very late arrival. Can't wait to go back to the area, and we will stay again at the Terrace Motel.

This was the cheapest hotel on our Lake Superior Circle Tour by motorcycle. In talking with the owner on the phone I found him very helpful and kind. We received a 10% AAA discount so we paid less than $50. You get what you pay for! The room was clean though the carpet was stained - looked like water had run out of the bathroom onto the carpet at some time. The bedspread was starting to look very worn and the furniture a little beat up. The pillows were very flat so we had to ask for some extras which the owner graciously provided. And the bed was very hard. On the positive side we had told the owner we were coming by motorcycle and he provided us with a room where the parking was level which was a great help to us!

The hotel was easy to find. The rooms were nicely spaced and comfortable for me and my wife. Larry was excellent in the info he gave of the areas we would be seeing. His map of the town was a big help to find the the restaurants. It was a rainy and windy weekend for the softball tournament we played in and it was an awesome place to stay for us, WE WILL RETURN at another time in the future to stay at the Terrace Hotel. Larry was extremely friendly and went out of his way on more than one occasion for us. He would make any place that a person would stay in a warm and comfortable place to be at with his outstanding customer service. Thanks Larry!!!

Larry was a great help in giving tips for our trip and making reservations for the Pictured Rocks Boat Cruise. The bathrooms were small, but were updated.
I was worried that we would be far from sites and restaurants but soon discovered that it is a very small town and it didn't matter. It seemed that the big chain motels/hotels were outside of town and this would be a better choice to be in town.
There is a game room, kitchen area and sauna available but we did not have time to utilize them. Free wi-fi and free parking.
