My daughter, grandson, a friend of mine and myself took a trip up to the U.P. to look at a property for sale (fingers crossed they accept our offer) and as I was looking on line for a place to stay, I came across the Sall-Mar motel. Besides the super low cost for a room with 2 double beds, I...

We needed a place to stay for a funeral in Rapid River, and Sall Mar Resort seemed like the right location and reviews were positive so we booked three rooms. Bob was so accommodating over the phone and just as accommodating in person. We were happy with the cleanliness and amenities and would definitely stay here again. You will need...

We were visiting family in the area, and Sal-Mar was perfect for us. We rented Cabin 3 and it was spacious, two bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen, dining and living areas, bathroom with shower. Two entrances, at front and rear. The cabins are a bit dated but that's the charm of the place. Towels were small and thin, beds comfortable. Our kitchen...

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights for a family reunion. Cabins had two bedrooms, a small kitchen and bathroom with shower. Beautiful grounds with a centrally located picnic area and horseshoe pit in back. A short walk down a beautiful path leads to a creek bank with a park bench and fire pit. Rates were very reasonable...

My husband & I stayed in one of the cabins. The cabins are pet-friendly which really helped us out seeing we had our dog with us. Very reasonably priced. Staff was friendly & room was clean. Would definately return.
