Noise curfew at 11pm. Children are asked to go quietly up and down outside stairs. Very helpful staff. Small balconies on the 8 waterfront rooms. And, best of all, an unobstructed view of the lake about 30 yards away. Room is very comfortable with decent Wifi and good beds. Small, inexpensive hotel about a mile from "city center". Would stay... More

Last Friday we checked in and cannot believe the way my boyfriend was treated when he simply mentioned that our shower and Jacuzzi tub both were not exactly clean. He wiped hair out of the shower. The old man in the office immediately denied that it could even be possible. Then he made us stop what we were doing and... More

Thank you for the opportunity to let future customers read my side of this review. As you can see by the other reviews posted, and with a repeat business of 97-98%, Beachcomber Motel On The Water must be doing something correct. Yes, I did ask the customer to go back to the room to verify the complaints they had about... More

Clean, wonderful location with some lakeside rooms. We stayed here based on the Tripadvisor reviews and were very pleased. We have stayed at several motels in Mackinaw City this was the best for the price. Try it you can't go wrong.

Room very clean staff very helpful and friendly. The view of the lake and bridge are awesome. With these views you would expect to pay alot more. My family and I come up here 2or3 times in the summer we plan on making this our new home away from home.

Beachcomber was very clean. I slept great so the mattress was good. They had an HBO channel to watch on TV. They had a nice little breakfast every morning.The other guests were quiet and considerate. The beach had an area for a fire with nice seating around it. The beach was ok but a little grassy. There is no pool... More

I was looking for a clean, convenient and inexpensive place to stay in Mackinaw City and was getting very discouraged by all of the negative reviews I was finding for so many of the hotels there. Then I found the Beachcomber and saw that it had so many positive reviews. I decided to give it a try. I am so... More

We stayed here overnight before going over to Mackinac Island for the rest of the weekend. The Beachcomber isn't fancy but it was very clean and quiet with a comfortable bed. Friendly check-in staff and we appreciated the larger than usual parking spaces. The only negative would be the tiny shower. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again the next... More

Pleasant stay. Very close to Mackinac Island ferries. Clean rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. No crazy hustle and bustle like the hotels less than a mile away. I would stay here again, and I would recommend friends to stay here, the rates are much more reasonable then the hotels just around the corner also.

We initially had booked a room at the Clarion down the road but when we saw the ultra positive TripAdvisor reviews on the Beachcomber, we switched and didn't regret it. It was a late Spring so the apparently annual gnats (small flies) were swarming everywhere and their dead bodies would pile up regularly inside and outside.They don't bite, they're just... More
