We spent several days at the Beachcomber. It is a very nice Little mom and pop motel. Lori at the front desk was very helpful. The beds are so comfortable. They have nice picnic tables, grills and fire pits. We really enjoyed our stay.

As others have said, this is a "mom & pop" motel. Nothing fancy and the furniture is dated, but that is part of its charm. The rooms are clean and relatively larger than the newer hotel/motels. It is right on the beach with plenty of chairs and gliders to sit and watch the moon rise or the campfire on the... More

Loved this place would go back for sure!!! The people were friendly and gave out lots of information. The water was nice even in August! My family really liked this place if i was staying longer i would have gotten a bigger room. From Ontario Canada

First... one of my biases is that I prefer smaller, "mom & pop" motels IF they are in good shape and clean. This one fits 100%. Sure, the rooms are a little small by today's standard and the bathrooms are as well and additionally suffer from a lack of shelf space to put stuff. But, the room was very clean,... More

We stayed one night and found this place to be very accommodating at the last minute. We drove up north with our family pet and decided we wanted to stay the night. The room was clean and I really was happy to find this place. My only complaint was there was a bench outside our room next to our door... More

First time here after many years staying at another hotel. We will be back. These folks are so friendly and accommodating. Room was large, clean, had great views, and very reasonable. We stayed on a Saturday and saw fireworks outside our balcony. Bonus!

We stayed five nights in the lake view Jacuzzi room. We usually stay in the chain hotels farther down the beach. The view of the island and the bridge is even better in this location. The room was clean and made up every day. The beach is sandy and not rocky like the other hotels. There are swings and stuff... More

Just stayed 4 nights at the Housekeeping cabin. It was perfect. It had such charm! It was clean and had everything we needed to make our autumn getaway perfect. Our final night we had a fire at the hotel's firepit on the beach and watched the fireworks in St Ignace and the bridge's lights and the moon rise. Perfect end... More

We hit the accommodation lottery when we found the Beachcomber Motel on the Water . Quaint, charming, clean and comfortable. From the moment you pull into their drive you will see the lake facing you and you know it’s going to be a relaxing stay. We stayed with our tiny well behaved pooch in a room that had a balcony...
