We used this motel as our base camp for daily motorcycle trips throughout the UP. Owners were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and rates were very reasonable. Will definitely stay again when in the UP. Thanks

When traveling through the area, we were looking for a pet friendly hotel/motel. We came upon Bay View Motel through an internet search. After checking reviews, it seemed like it would be fine. It was more than fine, it was great. The rate was very reasonable. We were very impressed with the reception. We were welcomed first by two adorable... More

The outside appearance of this budget motel really could use some work in the cleanup department - it culd cause some people to just drive by which would be a shame. Looks cluttered and junky. That said, the room was excellent - very clean and spacious (two tables and three chairs) and seemed pretty up to date. To be fair,... More

It's a treat to find a truly pet friendly place to stay! I have stayed here a week for the past three summers and love it! Tom and Tammie are super accommodating and go out of their way to make sure their guests are comfortable; they even added a ramp for a fellow traveler who needed it for his wheelchair.... More

Stayed here our last night of cross country road trip. We stayed in the whirlpool room. Nice woodsy view. Room was inside building, did not expect that, kind of disappointed because a pain to load/unload. Pet friendly. Dated rooms which is ok with us. Room was clean. No soap in room. All in all an ok place.

I stayed here with a group of 10 high school students in town for a Robotics competition at Escanaba High School. The High School is only 8 miles from the motel. Even though, the decor is outdated, we didn't care because the rooms were extremely clean. The rooms had mini refrigerators and microwaves. There is a game room with arcade... More

In an area of so many motels/hotels, it's no wonder this motel is so well occupied! The owners are friendly, welcoming and attentive. They love dogs, and welcome well behaved dogs into their motel, and even into their courtyard with chairs and a fire pit. There is a gas grill and charcoal grill for your use, with a patio and...
