The owners were kind. It is right on lake Michigan, you can walk to Lake Michigan and swim if you like. The room was 95% clean, there was one arrant piece of paper under the bed. We got a 2 - queen bed room and it was $64 a night in August. The room was large... I saw the one...

We stayed here with our 2 dogs and were pleasantly surprised by our large, comfortable, incredibly clean room. And the view!!All rooms look out over Lake Michigan. The hotel is close to the boardwalk along the lake and the owners are very nice and helpful.Pet friendly and spotless are not usually words used to describe the same place, but in...

The rooms were super clean! The people were friendly and we had a very nice and comfortable stay. My companions really enjoyed the old-fashioned style where you can drive right up to the door. We had absolutely no complaints about the motel. The only reason I did not give it the full five rating was that the wi-fi did not...

The rooms were the cleanest I've ever stayed in. Ours had brand new carpets and was extremely roomy. The atmosphere was quiet and homey. The beds were big but not too comfortable and the tv is small (we didn't even watch it). The swings were great for our 3 year old to unwind on. We took a nice walk down...

My husband and I have stayed at a few different places in Manistique, but this one is now by far our favorite. What a fantastic find. I am a clean freak and always hesitant of staying places. Star Motel is located right on US 2 and is close to everything. Every person I encountered on staff was welcoming and helpful....

The Star Motel will brighten your day/night when you discover what it offers. It's right on US 2 making it super easy to find. The motel is very close to Lake Michigan. It's in close proximity to a variety of dining, shopping, and sights to see. Public beaches and the East Breakwater Lighthouse are just down the road. This is...

Based on other reviews we elected to stay at the Star Motel and were delighted we had done so. As others reported the room was spacious and spotless. It had newer carpets, paint, bathroom tub and flooring. The large back window was facing the lake but the lake view was not too good from our room. We did however see...

It is an amazing experience to stay here. It's all about old fashioned American hospitality. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Bathroom amenities are all provided for including a hairdryer. There's a fridge, a rocking chair, a little TV with lots of channels and a comfortable bed. It is an older motel but with a homey atmosphere. They have...

Ended up here for two nights due to a quick trip to Manistique. A few phone calls to about 5 other local places showed that Star had ridiculously inexpensive rates compared to the others, as well as being extremely hospitable on the phone. (A few of the other local places were downright rude on the phone...like I was bothering them.)...

We have stayed at the Star Motel several times over the years, always in February. We love to drive to the U.P. to see the "frozen waterfalls." The Star Motel is located in a central area to the things we love to do. Although an older motel, it is very clean and the rooms are large. The rates are low...
