We stayed overnight during Labor Day weekend. The place is old, but seemed clean and maintained. We had an issue over price when I checked in. This issue was solved with very little problem. The location is just a little bit off the beaten path of the tourist area, which was a plus for me. The owner was very nice,... More

I stayed there last year for the labor day bridge walk and it was perfect. The room was kept clean throughout the weekend. It was one of the cheapest placed to stay over the three day weekend. Just a couple blocs from the downtown area. Very quiet at night, I did not hear the road noise at all.

This is your typical older motel, but the rooms are clean and big and the location is great, outside of town but close to everything. The only cons were the mattresses were super firm to the point of being uncomfortable and the AC went off and on all night. There was no option to just keep it on low.

The Vindel Motel has to be the best value in Mackinaw City. I've stayed there at least five different times and I have always been pleased with my accommodations. It's not fancy and the rooms are not big, but it is always clean and the beds are very comfortable. I'm the worst critic when it comes to where I will... More

This is the best place to stay in Mackinaw. The owners go out of their way to accommodate their guests. The rooms are great as well as the pool. You can walk to the boulevard for anything you want or need. Vindel's is worth every penny!

The housekeeping was spectacular organizing everything in our room perfectly it smelled and felt clean in the room once we returned. We had family members that stayed in a well known hotel who's service was no where near what we received. Upon... More

About 100 biker's left Hell Mi. to ride to Paradise Mi. on June 21, 2014. A group of us stayed at the Vindel Motel. All of us agreed that Clare & Mark made our stay extremely wonderful.

We stayed at the Vindel Motel: June 27 & 28, 2014. The owners were very friendly and professional. The property is in a great location, close to most attractions. The motel was exceptionally clean. New remodeled rooms with flat screen TV, microwave, air conditioning and free wireless internet.
