Great sunrise views
Great motel for access to water and sunrise views! Nice evening fires. Basic well-worn rooms with nice mattresses.

The scenery outside of the hotel was beautiful. The main room was fine, TV was okay, I thought the beds were fine, my husband did not think they were comfortable. The bathroom shower was very small and not in great shape. The owners were very nice and friendly.

Local beach side motel part of UP charm
It is a cozy beachside motel. The bonfire was lit each night and the kids loved playing in the lake. It’s not a big beach but big enough to play on the rocks, swim in the water, play in some sand, it’s a perfect kids beach. The room is wood paneling and my daughter loved it, said she felt like we were staying in a beach cottage just how she imagined. Shower is small and the rooms are small but our goal was to have a place to wash up and sleep. We travelled out each day in the UP and this was a comfortable place to come back to to rest. If you are looking for a modern, tv watching hotel don’t stay here. Staff was personable, available, and honest. She cares about her motel. Was a great stay.

The room was small but rustic and charming, perfect home base for exploring the beauty of the UP. The beach in back of property is just beautiful. The hospitality was just right. We will be back!

If you cannot find anywhere to stay besides the Bayview leave and go to another town.
The gentleman that we checked in with was very nice and helpful. The room was run down with broken lights broken connectors for phone chargers showers that were flaking paint the room with Furniture so large that there was no room to set baggage in. Our whole experience was rather interesting. The last day there was a lady manager that seemed to act as though she was over the young man that checked us in. She was literally downgrading guests to other guests that were checking in and she seemed a bit bossy and arrogant and needs to find another line of work.
