“Great local motel!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We were looking for a neat little place to stay during our honeymoon road trip that brought us to Northern Michigan. Northernaire Motel was just what we were looking for! We met Andy upon arrival and he was so nice and helpful. I thought it was such a nice touch that when he saw my car, he was telling me how there was a MINI Cooper rally in town a few weeks earlier, even bringing me a newspaper with an article about it! Coffee in the morning was delicious. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! St. Ignace was a brief stopover during our month-long honeymoon road trip, but after such a great experience I would really like to go back and spend a week. Thank you again Andy, you have a wonderful place!

Great little mom and pop motel. The owner was very sociable and helpful. Steered me toward a great pastie place and full of information about the area. Very clean and prices were reasonable for high season.

Love this place! Andy is such a great guy he even moved his car out of his garage so bikers could park their bikes in the garage at night. Little fire pit for sitting outside at night and great company. He really makes people feel welcome. Andy and Sherri have done a great thing with Northernaire, made it a place people like to come back to time after time. The little cabins are great with knotty pine interiors, refrigerators and coffee machines in them. Rooms are warm and comfy in the winter and air conditioned in the summer.

The cabin was nice and clean, with internet. Knotty pine interior gave it an old reminiscence charm of the days gone by! Everything worked well and Andy was very informative on events and places to go

This is our second time staying with Northernaire,and once again they didn't fail us! Andy & Sherry were very helpful, gave us discount coupons and suggested places to eat and visit. Our cabin was exceptionally clean and neat, and furnished with everything we needed.We appreciated the quietness and privacy of a cabin. They even opened the windows and had the room cooled when we returned from a hot day on Mackinac Island!
Thank so much Andy & Sherry!

Very clean rooms. No funny (or not so funny) smells like other little Mom & Pop establishments. Hot water right away, clean carpets, comfy beds. We sat around the fire with the owner, Andy, and other guests and had a pleasant evening telling stories and learning about each other. We will definitely return on our next visit.

Rooms are clean & comfortable. The customer service here is worth the stay alone. The owner (Andy) gave us coupons for activities for our kids and let us know about other local events happening that our kids would enjoy - Ie. the week we stayed, there was a movie showing on the beach, for free. He even made brownies for our family! =}. It's close to 'downtown', right across the street is a convenience store, as well as the water! Fire ring & picnic table available for nightly s'mores. We've stayed here twice now and will stay again. =}

Room Tip: Tell Andy how many people are in your party and he will recommend the best for you! Book early.
