We chose this motel based on other Trip Advisor reviews. Erin the manager was very friendly. Our room was what we expected for the price we paid. It was very clean.
The only tip I can offer other readers would be, our room did not have a hair dryer.
Not sure if that was due to Covid-19 or not. I did not call the front desk to check and see if one was available.
At the time of this booking we were looking for a hotel closer to Munising as we had plans to visit Taquamenon Falls. None we available so we chose this hotel. Glad we did.
I’ve stayed at the “chain-style” motels in Newberry but thought I’d give Evening Star a try on my most recent stay in Newberry. It turned out to be an excellent value for the money - super clean room, excellent WIFI, and quiet. I’ll probably never go back to the other chain-style motels. The Evening Star room was small, but I was traveling solo so asked for the small sized Single room which was 1/2 the price of the “chains”. The small room lacked a coffee-maker but was equipped with a microwave & frig - morning coffee was available at the gas station across the street (if I had travelled with a mug & instant coffee, I could have made it in the microwave). The bed was comfortable, the bathroom absolutely spotless, and the staff friendly & accommodating. The day I was scheduled to leave, a large thunderstorm blew through the area so they let me stay past the unusual check-out time, at no-cost, until the storm passed; which was greatly appreciated. Staff was wearing masks the whole time & appeared to be taking Covid precautions seriously. Also, liked the fact they had two picnic tables available, several chairs located outside most units & flower-pots filed with sand (for the smokers amongst us). Another bonus was being able to park your car right in front of your room. Would happily return...
Local hotel when you need a nice clean and quiet place to stay and you don't need the extra frills. Owners are very nice and accommodating. Perfect place to stay while visiting Tahquamenon Falls (about 20 miles away). Each room has a fridge and a microwave and excellent wireless (not like the chain hotels where you have 500 people sharing it). Great cable TV (about 80 channels). Also, the room has VERY good lighting! Right across the street from a gas station and restaurant. A few minutes from McDonalds and Pizza Hut as well. Excellent rates! You cannot go wrong with the Evening Star. This was my second stay here.
Very clean and comfortable. The room is basic, but with all of the necessities. Very comfortable bed. Very quiet. Very affordable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Hope to return here with family/friends in the future.
We stayed for two nights. It was very clean and did have an indoor pool. It is nothing fancy. Clean room, comfy bed, microwave and refrigerator in the room. If you want a clean place to slerp I'd recommend.
