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

My husband and I decided on a last minute trip up to Mackinac last weekend and knew that if we could get something cheaper, it wouldn't be anything fancy. I looked at a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor before I booked and this one looked decent, especially with all the good reviews. Not so much. I found a rate of... More

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 Many bugs in very outdated room.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.
