Just south of town so fairly quiet. Very clean and comfortable. Front desk was excellent but don't ask her about restaurants. Breakfast selection was decent and good sized room made it more enjoyable.

This hotel was fine and nothing fancy at all. It is not right in town or close to all the action and the lake. Seemed a little old and we were expecting a nicer place for the price. Had the price been around $100, we would have thought it was a good value. Construction or demolition or something going on...

We stayed here for a few days while visiting Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore (well worth visiting by the way). The exterior of the hotel is very dated, as are the hallways dining area and lobby; however, the rooms are fine, always clean, have a fridge, and are fairly large. Beds are comfy as well. The free breakfast was decent....

This hotel is about 3-5 miles outside downtown Munising. The hotel is nothing from the outside. The lobby is small and very outdated. The rooms are clean but very dingy and dark. The carpet and bedding looked like they were in fairly new condition but the room and hallways had an offensive odor. I opened the window and turned on...

We made a lucky last minute reservation for one night (7/25) - check in was easy and we found our room to be very clean. Like the kind of clean you just don't expect from a hotel. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were quiet- we didn't hear any hallway noise. The refrigerator in the room was great....

Stayed here on a motorcycle ride of the UP. Chose this motel since it was close to the Pictured Rocks cruise. The woman who works the front desk was very nice and helpful. Also, breakfast was REALLY good!

I just returned from my weekend visit. It was very clean and up to date. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful in navigating my trip. I liked that breakfast was provided and allowed for a relaxing morning, rather than having to find a restaurant.
