This place is a little older but very clean. Only a mile outside Mackinaw City with a convenience within walking distance. Communal outdoor kitchen and laundry, charcoal and gas grill available. Its not glamorous but for $50 a night the value can't be beat. We will definitely be coming back!

I enjoyed staying here. The price is fair only $63.00 on a Saturday Night! The room and furnishings are old but clean. The bed was comfortable. They have an outside communal kitchen were you can cook a meal. I would recommend bringing a pot and frying pan with your own utensils (just put them in your cart trunk) This is... More

Let me preface this review by saying that I have nothing whatsoever against the owners who were very nice. This review is based solely on mine and my family's experiences at the Sundown Motel. After calling around looking for a place that was economical and that would also allow us to bring our two dachshunds, I found the Sundown Motel.... More

When we called to check availability (after driving through the Wilderness State Park camping area and finding it inundated) we were pleased to learn that the Sundown Motel had a room with a double bed. These are not rooms, but cabin-ish separate dwellings. Most were like a duplex, with two units to a small building. Ours was a stand-alone building,... More

My family and I have been staying at the SunDown for more than 25 years. The owners are some of the nicest people we've met in town and go out of their way to make your stay with them comfortable. I recommend the Sundown to everyone I know traveling north. I'm glad there is such a comfortable, affordable, friendly place... More

My husband and I wish that we discovered this place sooner- very low priced rooms-very clean, which has been somewhat of a problem with a couple of the other previous hotels in Mack City. A refrigerator and microwave in the room, just the right size room for my husband and I. I have made another reservation with this place for... More

The Sundown Motel was a very nice place to stay for our first night in Mackinaw City. At only $44 per night during the summer, we had absolutely no complaints. It's very easy to find if you're coming into the city from the south as it's the first hotel on your right when you take the first exit onto S... More
