    Hope to stay again!

    Found room to be clean and comfortable. Nice feature with the lake access and firepit along with an additional propane fire pit area to relax at after a day of exploring the area. Every room has a unique theme. Was also happy to see a refrigerator, coffee maker and flat screen tv as it was not listed in original description.

    Friendly

    Arrived late, like after 10:00. Office was closed so I called. They told me my room Is all set it’s unlocked and the key is inside. We can settle up in the morning. The room was clean and comfortable. The AC was turned on so it was nice and cool. I would definitely stay there again.

    Cute with a great lake view.

    This place was cute. The room was a bit small but decorated nicely. It was very clean and the service was great. I did feel bad cause we arrived late at night to check in and I didn't know that the check in office closes at a certain time since it's a small motel. I called the office and woke someone up who directed me to the room I had booked. They had the room set up for my arrival already. The thing I liked most was that Portage Lake is right across the street and they have some chairs to sit in and just relax while listening to the waves.

    One night stay

    Harbor town hopping vacation, this is one of few choices in the area. Room was clean and enjoyed the sunset on the lake. Staff friendly

    Decent

    Overall I was pleased considering. As much as I paid per night, the accommodations for necessities could have been available in the room, like a microwave and an iron. Little things makes a huge impact. Nice little beach across the street. Accessible fire pit and grill. Nice little town.

    We loved our stay here! The rooms and bathrooms are fairly small but they have done a great job of keeping things clean and well decorated. The bedding looked fresh and new. We especially loved the motel’s area and fire pit by the water and that we could walk a half block to the city park with a nice beach and the cute ice cream shop that we rented a SUP from. Onekama is a tiny town with not much in the way of restaurants, but it was peaceful. Also, try the pizza at the EZ Mart...weird, but it’s quite good!
