After one Hotel failed to confirm out reservation I contacted a local Bar we had stopped at this summer and asked for a recommendation. Vindel was one of two and as this may be a regular trip for us I wanted to try two... More

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

OMG. I loved this place. Its on the western side of the bridge but still "walking distance, about 4 blocks " to the main central ave strip., so its peaceful and a body can get some sleep. For the price i wasnt expecting such a beautiful room. They are all non smoking so no stale smoke smell. We stayed in... More

Nice curb appeal,Outstanding service, clean room, comfortable bed, great towels and good pillows. I give the new owners five stairs. It was like staying at the Greenbrier. Keep up the good work Clara... More

We have stayed at LOTS of places in Mackinac City over the years. The Vindel is BY FAR, the best place in town. Clean, modern and centrally located. The place switched hands in 2010 and the new owners are the best. VERY accommodating and personable. We stayed at the Vindel several times in 2010 and each was an enjoyable, classy... More
