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!

We stayed on the 4th of July weekend. Were very kindly greeted when we arrived and were happy to find a well kept room. This is a mom and pop joint with a very personal feel to it. Loved the location right next to the bridge. The location made for some awesome pictures of the fireworks in the area. Would... More

My family (me, husband and 10 yr old son), stayed at the Riviera Motel this family vacation because we were tired of "chain" hotels. We were not disappointed. The room was incredibly clean, new carpet smell. Beds were fairly comfortable. There are not a lot of "extras" with this room. There is no in room coffee pot, for instance, but... More

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.

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.
