We went to Indian river for a fall ATV ride. We were looking for a place that we could ride our RZR from to the staging location. We have never stayed here but being a small town and hundreds of riders, there weren’t a lot of options. It was a really nice place everything we needed in the room, refrigerator, microwave, they even had a fan! We brought our own because we can’t sleep without one and were surprised to see there was already one in the room! That will be nice to know for the next time we stay there. The owners were very friendly and very accommodating. Even provided a free breakfast on Sunday at the VFW next-door! I thought the price was a little high for a “motel” but had absolutely no complaints. We normally stay in our motorhome, but if we ever need to stay in a motel in that area we will definitely stay there again!

Stayed: October 2017

We stayed at Star Gate Motel in late September. Very friendly and helpful owners. The rooms were clean and parking for our boats was great! Would definitely stay here again! Coffee on in the office every morning at 6:00 a.m. Very close to fishing lakes and a couple wineries!

We enjoyed our stay with John and Jill. The room was tidy and the water was hot with a new shower head. It wasn't fancy but there is a nice green picnic and chair area under the tall pines in front. Couldn't ask for more at this price.

We went to Mackinac Island and needed a place to stay prior to and after our stay on the island. The Star Gate Motel was exactly what we wanted:

Clean, Comfortable, and Economical

The motel has the charm of the 1960's era but has been improved with new queen mattresses in all rooms (we were told), new TVs with cable, Wi-Fi, and fresh coffee each morning in the motel office at 6 am! (Great coffee by the way.) The motel is extremely clean!!! It's a Mom and Pop motel that is truly loved by the owners. I can see they take pride in their motel. John, the owner, told us they have owned the motel for just over 4 years.

The motel was about 30 minutes from the Mackinac Bridge. We would highly recommend the Star Gate Motel.

Stayed: August 2017

Rooms had new beds and updated air conditioning yet still had the old up north cabin feel. Manager was very friendly and helpful with all our needs. Checking in an out was easy. The location in perfect for doing little day trips around Indian River.
