View of the natural wonder form the waters of the lagest of the Great Lakes! Pictured Rocks is best viewed, in my pinion, as the colors are at peak. The boat is large and stable in water that has a mind of its own!

I waited until the last minute to book a room for a weekend visit to Munising (I would definitely recommend booking earlier), and most of the motels were already booked. The North Star is about 3 miles from downtown and 5 miles from the closer end of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The motel was clean, quiet, and had a good... More

Being confused as if the hotel was a Super 8 or Magnuson hotel led to much confusion. However, we booked at North Star Hotel and were pleasantly surprised by the new carpet throughout and the room was new as of 9/24/16 when we stayed the night.
