We have stayed here many times over the years have not been disappointed. $25 less than others in the, same limited amenities, very nice people and clean as I said. Our room even has a view of the lake

Basic, clean motel. Comfortable bed & really nice view of Lake Michigan. I stayed there in July 2016 and arrived when it was dark, after a very long drive. Due to lack of lighting in the parking lot I wished it would have been easier to find my room. It would be helpful if there was some lighting in the...

If you are looking for big screen tv and fancy furnishings look elsewhere, but if you just want an inexpensive clean comfortable place to sleep this place will fit the bill. There is coffee but no breakfast - for this price buy your own

A pleasant old motel of brick, limestone, chrome, blonde furniture, and simple comfort. It is one of my favorite motels in all of the Upper Peninsula. My family stayed here frequently on family trips in the 1990s, and I'm glad I can return, and virtually nothing had changed. It is a motel with many of its original furnishings and fixtures...

Friendly staff, rooms are spacious and have been updated...the motel is on Lake Michigan with limited views of the lake from various rooms. Nice backyard to relax in and boardwalk is a short walk away. Clean

Perfect location on lake side of Route 2. Large, clean and very comfortable room. The grounds are very nice. The reception room has menus of places to eat. If you are looking for a place to stay between here and there, this is the spot. Very reasonable price also.

This was our second stay here, we had a single bed room, so it was quite spacious. the bathroom was also roomy. The room has casement windows on both sides of the room, so when the weather is nice, you can have plenty of fresh lake air to enjoy. There is an air conditioner to use, but we never needed...

We stay at this hotel every year on the way to a family gathering. As mentioned in many other reviews, the Star is spotlessly clean. It is family run and friendly. The rooms are large, and the decor is simple but comfortable with plenty of vintage charm. One thing many people don't mention is that the rooms all include a...

During a visit to Manistique, my daughter and I spent 4 nights at the Star Motel. It is probably a two star property, but they do "basic place to lay your head" perfectly. This property is spotless....ceiling fans, bathroom fans....there is not a speck of dust or dirt on anything in the room. The good - CLEAN, cheap, close to...

Every time we come to Manistique we always stay at the Star motel. We always request rooms 1, 2 or 3! Rooms are spotless! The lady and her son who own the motel are very nice! Make sure you take a walk to the water, always fun to pick up driftwood! We'll be back!
