New Hotel to be Built in Manistee

Last Friday was the groundbreaking for a new hotel being built on Manistee’s shoreline.

A Hampton Inn and Suites will go where the Lakeshore Motel now stands.

The hotel will be five stories with 102 rooms, and is expected bring $17 million dollars of economic activity to the downtown area and regional economy.

“The $27 million dollar investment will bring dozens of jobs to Manistee but most importantly it will make a new market niche for visitors to come and visit our downtown,” said Marc Miller, Director of Economic Development in Manistee.

The hotel plans on opening in May 2023.
