We booked this hotel because there were no rooms available at a decent rate anywhere else. We expected old and were ready for that, but we did not expect utter filth. There were cobwebs all over the baseboards. The bathroom walls were dirty up to waist level. These were not permanent stains, I was able to wipe some of it... More

This Motel is my favorite here in Mackinac City. This is my second time staying here at mackinac and these people here are caring friendly and wonderful. Always helping me to accomodate my family and giving us the best. Thanks again for everything! Good breakfast in the mornings!

I understood going here that it was an economy motel, so it was not going to have the amenities of some of the better, more expensive places to stay. However, it felt and looked so dirty that it was not pleasant to stay here. The bathroom probably hasn't been updated in 20 plus years. The tub had lots of rust... More

My wife and I travel with our dog. We stayed several times here and thought it was a good value until the last time. One thing is the housekeeper is rude and not very qualified to clean rooms. Dirt and dust left in the corners and under the bed and not friendly. We use to stay twice a year and... More

Three motels share one indoor/outdoor pool. Beautiful view and minutes from downtown. The staff are friendly and courteous. Waterfront rooms are very spacious and smaller units are also available at a good rate.

This is a quite standard motel, with two adjoining buildings. Stayed in a beach room in the actual Sunrise Beach Motel. Can't really give this kind of motel more than three stars, but for its kind my experience here rates it a 4* motel rating. Bedroom was clean, two queen beds, sliding patio doors to a small patio with chairs,... More

The room barely had enough area to move around in. The furniture in the room was stained and dirty. The pool and hot tub area was very dirty and we did attempt to use. The breakfast was pretty decent considering it was such a small motel.

We booked a room with one queen bed, and it was very small. The bed was comfortable, but the room was probably the smallest motel room we have ever stayed in. The air conditioner was in the wall right above the bed and was too noisey to run during the night. The bathroom was also very small and not too... More

If you are looking for a nice inexpensive place to stay with a good view this is it. This is the second time we have stayed here. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the view of the bridge and the island. It is not a new modern hotel but you are not paying that higher price either. They... More
