We go to Mackinaw every summer but unfortunately was unable to get rooms at the motel we usually stay at. So we decided to try this place, which was just a couple of buildings down from the other motel. I had read the good and bad reviews from others but still decided to give this place a try. We had...

For the price I had a great view of island and bridge. That's it.....the beds are lumpy, no phone, tv woukdnt work with remote, no wifi, the tub had no plug, the shower is rusty, the caulking around tub is moldy, no coffee maker, and the continental breakfast was nothing to want to eat. Icky cereal, over cooked oatmeal, bagels....that's... More

Disgusting! If you stay here, which you should not, then bring your own cleaning supplies to save yourself the trip to the local IGA. Upon entering our room, a mildew stench greeted us immediately. I went to open the sliding doors which face the lake, but as soon as I touched the blinds, two fell to the floor. The sliding... More

We stayed at this Motel 5 years ago and it was ok then. This time however was a huge disapointment. We reserved 3 nights. We checked into our room and it smells bad. We opened the windows to air it out but there is no screen on the bathroom window! The front window had a screen so we did not... More

Clean room, overlooking the lake. Minimal amenities. Small refrigerator in the room. Nothing fancy, but a great value for the location. Indoor/outdoor pool too. Did not use pool however. We were out of the room mostly and just slept there.

Sunrise Motel is an affordable and nice place to stay for your money. We were given a room on the second floor and it had an AWESOME view of the Mackinaw City Coast-line, bridge, and island! Great Motel

Let me start by saying the reviews of hotels for Mackinaw City are all over the place to the point where you wonder if there are any good motels in town. Most of the lodging in Mackinaw is motel style with doors on the outside. On this trip I was looking for a mom and pop place with very reasonable... More

This is a nice motel and has a beautiful view of the bridge and the island. We were going to just spend one night but when we got in the room it had a nice round table and two nice chairs that we could move in front of the patio door and watch the lake we decided to stay another... More

We visited at the end of the season and the hotel we originally wanted had closed. We were told this place was very similar to our original choice so we booked here for 4 nights. Although the prices were very reasonable, I felt it was a situation of "you get what you pay for." The place seemed clean but quite... More

We stay here every time we are in the city. It is located right on Lake Huron, has a great view of the bridge at night and is clean and priced right. It's close enough to the city, but far enough to be peaceful. Would definitely recommend.
