My son in law and i made no plans as we rode up north. Stopped in Tawas City and just dropped in to this little gem. Can't understand why at peak season and for the very moderate rate, this place isn't full. The pictures are not enough. Great AC. Great shower. Nice beds. Complimentary popcorn and water. Jacuzzi. Microwave. Fridge.... More

Stayed one night while traveling around Michigan on a get-away weekend. The motel is small, only 8 or 10 units, but it has a nice cozy feel about it. Our room was a bit dated but everything was very clean and comfortable. All the rooms have hot tubs, ours worked great after a day of traveling and sightseeing the area.... More

Although I never stayed at this motel it is difficult for me to understand how it got the rating that it has. I made reservations for 3 rooms here based on its Trip Advisor rating and ended up coming up 2 rooms short. I was told by the proprietor that he only had me down for 1 room and he... More

I stayed here last week while visiting my Mom in hospice. The owners were very compassionate and flexible. The room was very comfortable as was the bed. They put two water bottles in my room each day. I've never had a motel do that before. Highly recommend! You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I stayed here on the first Thursday and Friday of this month (October). We were very pleased with our stay. We enjoyed roomy accommodations and got two great, cozy nights of sleep. We were charmed by the obvious care and pride that the owners take in their motel. Note the price point. The towels are thin. And,... More

Excellent place to stay for the money. Extremely clean and well maintained. The televisions small and not HD but the hot tub makes up for it. Its not on the water but its close to all the activities. Will definitely go back.

We asked to view the room before signing in and we were more than ready to sign in! It was a very clean and attention was spent on detailing. Each room has a different theme.

Everything about this reservation/rental was excellent. It was a smooth reservation process, with accommodations available for late check-in. Checking in was great, along with meeting the cutest pup. The room was so clean - I was amazed. A little outdated, but nothing out of the ordinary for this area. For both nights we stayed, I got the best sleep of... More

“We normally sleep on a sleep number bed, so it's tough for a motel/hotel room to get an 'Excellent' rating from us on "Sleep Quality". However, the bed in "The Fisherman's Bay" room was quite comfortable!”
