My daughter wanted to celebrate her birthday in the UP so we took a weekend trip. We go up yearly as we have family up there and usually stay in chain hotels. We decided to give the smaller motels a chance during this trip. We picked the Star Motel because it was on the water and it had excellent reviews....

Good prices, good rooms, pet friendly. Highly recommend the Star and we will stay there next time we visit the U.P. We visit at least once a year and this was the first time we stayed at the Star and it is the best place we have stayed in Manistique.

Friends were staying here and invited us over to see it before they came to our home. I had been curious about the place for years. I admit I was completely astonished when I saw their room. As so many other review have stated, it is extremely clean. I actually told our friend that it looked as though they had...

This motel is older, but the rooms are spotless. No breakfast, but there are lots of places to eat in the area. The price was right, too! I also enjoyed a short walk down to the Lake Michigan shore. It's nothing fancy, but comfortable and more than adequate. Our only complaint was the soft foam on top of the mattresses.

This has got to be one of the cleanest places we've ever stayed in. Rooms are spacious and full of cool old furniture from the '50s, '60s or '70's - much of it blonde. Little road noise. Very, very low rates! Skip the chain motels nearby and stay here! Friendly owners. Our only disappointment was that there's really no access...

We've been staying here for about 3 years now. It was referred to us and now we are referring to our friends. We tried others in the area.......but this one is the best "all the way around". IF you need a big screen TV.....it isn't for you. If you want, clean, quiet, friendly, good cost........this is the one to go...

We always stay in this hotel when in the area. Clean and friendly along with the sounds of Lake Michigan in you window all night. Love the large rooms and the furnishings. Would stay here again if in the area.

This was a great find on our trip to the Island. I have never seen such a clean motel! You can tell the owners take pride in their business. While the furniture may be "retro", who really cares if the rooms are clean and the rates are reasonable.

The rooms were clean. No breakfast but had coffee. People friendly. We grilled steaks at the motel. Picnic tables there. Could walk to the lake in back of the motel. The prices were very reasonable. Nice city. Lots of restaurants. Allowed pets for a small fee.

One nighter on the way to campsite. The room was great... in very good shape, roomy, and clean and fresh. Dorothy the hostess was very charming and helpful and the view out the back added to the charm. Very affordable, and we would stay here again the next time.
