This is not a fancy motel but it is super clean and has small refrigerator etc. It has two bed in different rooms. That is good for some but the bed in the front room takes up space. The very best thing about this hotel is the view. It has a beautiful view of the lake, plenty of chairs and... More

I just loved this place. It a quiet little place. Every room has a waterfront view. Every room has a kitchenette. From looking at the outside it looks like a regular strip motel, but I think all the rooms are actually more like a cabin than just a hotel room. It's not modern, but really if you're looking for modern... More

We stayed here in Oct. and LOVED it. The hotel is right on the Lake with a nice grassy area in front with Adindrondack chairs to relax in and area for BBQing. Our room was VERY clean and comfortable.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon, so we "splurged" for the suite with the private balcony. It is, of course, on the second floor, and the stairs to get up there are kind of narrow, so if you have a lot of luggage it can be a bit difficult. The suite was kind of strange because you have...

I stayed in room 107 last Sunday night- great location, had two beds was on the water. Big problem was the pet urine smell in our room.

Read all the reviews for hotels in Munising. Chose Sunset strictly for the ambience - a wonderful view of Lake Superior from their cozy lawn filled with comfy chairs. But it wasn't their fault that it was a rainy day, so no sunset view! We had Room 101 which was right next to the office, and the only room with... More

We spent the night here. It would have been great to grill out but we were traveling. Everything is set up for eating outdoors. Beautiful view. Nice staff. Room was nice and clean. Would go back. On the outskirts of the city so we needed to drive back and get food for our dinner.

Just returned from a 5 night stay and it was wonderful! We had a second floor room with a deck in front and was great. Our room had a kitchenette with stove. They have charcoal grills and provide the charcoal, and grill tools. Would definitely recommend!
