This is a wonderful place to stay and everyone is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and is in walking distance to downtown and various attractions. We stay at Vindel's every year in July and would recommend it to everyone. Stan

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. Very clean Motel & friendly owners. We plan on staying there again next year. Highly recommend the Vindel Motel. Thanks Mark & Clare... More

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.

We stayed at the Vindel Motel August 23 and 24, 2013. We were in Mackinaw City to attend the Corvette Crossing car show. The Vindel Motel is a great value. The location is great. It’s less than a ten minute walk to down town. The rooms are as advertised. Our room had a flat screen TV, microwave, wall mounted A/C.... More

The Vindel was our first stop on a 9 day trip to the Upper Peninsula. We got a bit of a late start & after stopping in Gaylord for dinner, we decided to call it a night in Mackinaw City. For the first time ever, we took our dog with us and needed a pet friendly establishment. Also for the... More

I have stayed at the Vindel Motel on many occasions over the last 2 years. It is without question, the BEST place to stay in Mackinac City. I have experienced quite a few of the lodging alternatives in town over the years. Some good and some not so good. The Vindel is not the easiest place to find as it... More
