We were looking for an inexpensive, no frills, clean motel walking distance to downtown Mackinaw City. This was a great choice. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The registration process online was very easy. For being an older motel, the room was exceptionally clean, the WIFI was efficient and there was even some breakfast in the morning. We will definitely... More

We were looking for a place where we could sit water side at sunset and sunrise. And we did. Nice small hotel, reasonable prices, reservations a must. Locally owned by a nice couple run the place. We will be back next year and look forward to the next time.

We stayed at the Beachcomber about a month ago. We had an immaculately clean room. While not as posh (or expensive) as some of the well-known chains, it was a great place to stay. The owner and manager both spoke to everyone each time they saw them. The rooms were clean and did not smell. Although there is no pool,... More

Look at all the reviews and the off season price of $69 a night then made reservations for 2 nights. The owners were very friendly, the room was very clean, the shower water pressure was the best I've come across in a long time and the view was wonderful. We reserved an upstairs room on the beach and couldn't have... More

Nice small hotel in Mackinaw City. Lakefront, upstairs room was very nice with great view. It was nice to have a screen door to the balcony. Parking is a bit tight. A bit of a walk to downtown, about a mile, but there are nice sidewalks the whole way. Breakfast was adequate. Laurie at the front desk was helpful and... More

Arrived late, the front desk has great service! Cabin light was on waiting for us to arrive. Lobby and motel room were clean. Beds cozy and everything in working order. Access to downtown a breeze, check out Nonna Lisa's restaurant. Right on the beach, sliding glass doors open up right onto the porch on the sand. The room was sunny.... More

This was a perfect place to stay along Lake Huron! We stayed in connecting rooms which allowed the four of us to all have our own beds. Rooms were clean. Property & beach was clean. Recommend wearing water shoes as there are some rocks in the shallow area. It was nice to be able to walk out very far in... More

This place hits the nail on the head. I had King whirlpool suite. It was perfect clean,and I mean plum perfect. The bed was fabulous, the linens fresh, and the tub sparkled. I had a beautiful view from my balcony. I slept like a dream. Lady at front desk was a charm and full of good tips. I appreciate her... More
