I found this motel which offered rooms with a kitchen. We wanted to be able to eat some of our meals in rather than eating out. Our kitchen was great and the motel offers a good cold breakfast with enough choices. The pool was a great plus at the end of hiking and exploring Sleeping Bear Dunes NP; we enjoyed a dip each night. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The only negative is the noise from the highway. However, after researching places to stay near Sleeping Bear Dunes, this motel was a good choice. I would recommend staying at Northwoods.
