Absolutely love staying here. If you are looking for a clean "up north" place to stay this is it. The owners are very friendly and know the area really well if you need some advice on things to do. Great view of the bridge as well.

great motel, great location, comfortable, clean, just a great place to stay. Its a Mom & Pop motel so they take great pride in making sure your visit is top shelf. No they don't have a crummy breakfast buffet, lots of places to eat in the city, but they do have coffee to start your day.

Husband and I stayed here for a night on our vacation, I wish I could have stayed 10 nights! The bed was comfy we had a wonderful bridge view room and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is older but very clean, the pool was a nice 87 degrees and you just can't beat the view! We... More

Great little motel. My family and I loved it. Great view, right on the beach, close to the bridge, pool was clean as was the room and hotel grounds. The staff/owners are friendly and helpful. What I loved was that you were not in the middle of the city but close enough to walk if you desired. I really can't... More

Motel was very clean and comfortable. Great view of the Mackinac Bridge. There is a park area next door with walkways and green space. The owners are friendly and helpful and rates are very reasonable for a resort city.

Most views are spectacular right from your rooms window. If not it is less than 10 steps outside your door. This is Mackinaws top secret motel to stay at with cozy clean rooms with updated carpet and bathrooms in almost all rooms. You might not get breakfast in morning but hot coffee is available in lobby and views are better... More

I chose to stay at this motel based on the trip advisor recommendations. Did I get the room I reserved? No. Did I have a view of the bridge or anything besides the parking lot? No. The room was basic, dark, dated. Hate the mold in the bathroom poorly concealed by grout. Would I stay again? Not a chance. Would... More

I stayed here twice in September and it was perfect. Clean, comfortable, helpful staff and the best view of the bridge from my room. Rates are fair and it made my trip restful! Also it's an easy walk to the shops on Central ave.

Forget the big chain places to stay....the Riviera Motel was the cleanest place we have ever stayed! The view out our window was the bridge! The motel is right next to the park, so we enjoyed walks several times a day down by the water. We are already planning our trip next year and it will include the Riviera Motel!

Stunning views of Lake Huron shoreline and Mackinac Bridge. Extremely helpful and friendly hosts, Lynn and Marietta! Free shuttle to the Mackinac Island ferry. FreeWiFi, coffee in lobby, outdoor pool. Thin walls though...had to run room fan to drown out snoring in adjacent room. :( Charming hosts would def bring us back here again.
