Worst Hotel owner in my 25 years of travel ! My daughter had a 4 Lb. Service Dog with all credentials.Its for seizure alert.But this owner Mr. Lynn Devantier could care less about a service dog or our family. He was rude heartless and the worst person I have ever came in contact in my 25 years of travel. At... More

We stayed here for one night, in a budget room, so it didn't have a fancy view, but it was very nice and clean and the staff was very helpful. It has a nice pool (towels provided) and is right on the lake, so you can walk to the beach and see the Mackinaw Bridge. It's walking distance from downtown... More

The rooms were clean, Rates reasonable, the owners were very kind and helpful, The view was by far amazing! They have an outdoor pool that was heated and my kids were very happy with that, just steps from the water and view of the bridge right from the room.

This is an older, but well maintained motel. One window by the door and another in the back of the room. Ask for a room on the second floor so you can view the lighted bridge at night. Owner was VERY friendly and helpful telling us what to see and do. No breakfast offered, but she had coffee and tea... More

We booked this room based the recommendations from this site, and was very pleasantly surprised. The property is located with a perfect view of the Mackinaw bridge and Island, and the rooms are spotlessly clean. The owners were very helpful and always available, and the pool overlooked the bay. The only thing that stopped Me from giving it 5 stars... More

We loved the bridge view and being on the lake. The rooms are affordable and clean, but bedding and wall treatments could use an upgrade. The rooms are very basic. Coffee is available in the morning in the lobby, but we also drink evening coffee and had to make a trip to town each night. Owners are very nice and... More

This is a nice little motel with a good view of the bridge. The rooms are clean and in great shape. It's probably been quite a long time since a remodel, but nothing is beat up and they are in great shape. A good place to sleep for the night when you are passing through or visiting the area. 2...

I'm stopping overnight, not a long stay, but the motel is great. It's not a fancy place, but it's very clean, comfortable, and has a great view of the bridge. If I'm in the area again I would definitely stay here. It is close to places to eat, easily walkable, plus you are right on the beach.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this room. Very clean and affordable. A fantastic view of the Mackinaw bridge and right next door to historical straights lighthouse. Walking distance to the old fort. Three or four blocks from the restaurant and T-shirt shop district. Heated pool! We will be back!
