We stayed at the Birchmont for 3 nights. We upgraded to the family suite. It was a little musty in our room but otherwise clean. We loved being across the street from Lake Superior and the walking trail that runs along the lake. Overall we were happy with our accommodations.

Let's be real, this motel is nothing special or fancy, but the view is pretty great, which is what you're paying for. The lady who checked us in was nice, but when she found out we were on our honeymoon she bummed me out a little. She said to my husband, "Wow! You got off cheap!" :-/ The bed was...

This was my second stay at Birchmont, both times I stayed in the budget room. If the latest decor and fancy wallpapers are your thing, this isn't the place for you. If you need a shiny clean, reasonably priced room in the Marquette area, here you go. THere are suites with mini-kitchens, but I didn't need that, there is a...

I was looking for a motel to spend a night for my family. looked on line and found the Birchmont Motel. they were very accommodating. the rooms were cleaner then any motel that I have ever stayed in. the staff was very friendly, and the rooms were old fashion but that made it more comfortable.

We had stayed here a few years ago, and it is a family-run business with a gorgeous view of Lake Superior. It is very accommodating to dogs, and while yes, the fixtures are older, it is like staying at your grandparents' cottage. The place is very clean, and the beds are comfortable. We liked the little kitchenette in the room...

Puzzled by all the positive reviews. This place is in dire need of a remodel. I've stayed at my share of mom and pop motels but this is by far the the oldest that looks to have had nearly no improvements since it was built. Gold bathtub (with a nonslip pad that was peeling off), toilet and weird stove along...

We have been visiting Marquette for many years as my husband is alumni, and now our son attends - and we've stayed in several area hotels, but for some reason never the Birchmont. That trend stops now. I had apprehension because of the lower cost (we stayed on a weekend night on a prime summer weekend and it was under...

Maybe it's the gorgeous summer weather, but no. It's more. Our room was immaculate and the beds are super comfortable. The managers are welcoming and made sure everything was right. I was the first one in the pool this season. We loved it! It's not a corporate chain hotel, but I'd rather stay at a nice mom and pop. This...

3 buddies and I were travelling through town on the way to MN to fish. I booked the Birchmont and couldn't have been happier. Our room were clean, comfortable, and spacious. Not to mention, a great view! We even forgot something in the in-room fridge, called them, and they held it til we came back through in a week. Try...

Things may have improved since we visited for two nights in late Sep 2015 - we hope so. At that time we found a place with great location in need of extensive renovation.This facility was recommended by the Michigan tourist office across the highway and a little to the south as being simple but with a great view. Yes, the...
