Not worth the $129 we paid. We stayed there because of the reviews on trip advisor,we will be more careful next time booking a room. Many bugs in very outdated room. Our room had a balcony with 2 cheap plastic chairs,one was broken. Didn't use the balcony much anyway-too many bird droppings and bugs! There was a view of the... More

This hotel inhabits two different buildings very close together. We had a room in each. The first room, Room 3 closer to 'Bells Melody' was clean enough. The bathroom smells funky, and in order to open the window you have to take down the screen. The water pressure was good, but the temperature was not consistent. I will say we... More

Great place to stay, it was quiet, the room was clean and it was close to the ferry to Mackinac Island (about a five minute drive away). Also it was cheap! A definite plus. Wifi was a bit weak when you have a tablet away from the office but this was a minor issue, it *was* however faster than I... More

A clean facility but that ends it. Breakfast available for two motels had about 8 tables is all. Air conditioner made noise but did not cool. A disappointment. Cheap though. They do have pricier rooms. They may have been acceptable.

We purposely stayed here because other tripadvisor ratings said it was clean and affordable. And it was! Owners were very nice and suggested restaurants, places to go, etc.

We stayed here when we went to Mackinac Island. Reasonably priced. We had a clean room with 2 queen beds. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the Straights, Mackinac Island, and Mackinac Bridge. My daughter loved the swim in and out pool. There is a small playground for the kids. There are also BBQs available for the beach. The... More

Very nice for a mote with a geat view of the Mackinac Bridge! We stayed here last summer in August when we went to Mackinac Island. The rooms here are kind of old but still affordable & clean. If you go out the sliding door you can go right to the water/sand. The rooms on the upper levels have balconies.... More

Clean. Good location. On beach. Nice for children. Rooms were old but clean and nice. Susan was great with information for a place to eat and things to see in the area.

Beautiful view of Mackinac City and the bridge. However, I couldn't help wondering the whole time we were there if I might have gotten a nicer room somewhere else for just a few more dollars. Breakfast offerings were few.

We often come here as a family, and have come to know the owners personally. They have a variety of rooms available that offer budget accommodations as well as those with sliding glass doors that exit directly to the beach. Motels closer to town don't offer the stunning view of the bridge and Mackinac Island or a beach with fire... More
