First time visiting Michigan in late August and I am looking for a great place to stay in/near/around Munising. Kid friendly is a plus. TIA
Holiday Inn express. just west of town.
HIX has a great view of the bay but it is a little pricey. East of town are a lot of smaller chains and mom & pop places. Check here: https://www.tripadvisor.com/SmartDeals-g42497-Munising_Upper_Peninsula_Michigan-Hotel-Deals.html
Second vote for HI Express especially with kids. It has a kid friendly indoor pool, but the pool was closed because of COVID on our last visit, so check ahead if that is important to you. It is pricey, though—sometimes $250 or higher per night, which is crazy for a HIX. But it is supply and demand up there, and you pay extra for the view. Tip: if a view/balcony from your room isn’t critical to you, don’t pay extra for it. You get the same view from the common areas of the hotel.
