The Beachcomber offers good accommodations for good value. We've been staying here for years because it's good value for the money. It's not a chain and is well run, clean, has comfy beds, and offers a small breakfast with good coffee - not something you always get at most motels/hotels. The rooms have refrigerators but no coffee pots or microwaves.... More

I have stayed at numerous hotels in Mackinac City, but the Beachcomber Motel is by far one of the best! We made last minute plans to go to Mackinaw Island, and we needed a place to stay. We called the morning of our travel, and we were able to secure a two-night stay in a king bed for a VERY... More

We have stayed at the beachcomber before and will return again. This is one of the few motels in Mackinaw City that is legitimate without crazy issues that some of the big hotels have. We had an upstairs room in a newer section of the motel with two queen beds, a small fridge and a small balcony. The motel is... More

As many has mentioned, the room decor was a bit outdated. That didn't matter, as we were in town for most of the day. It's within walking distance from the main attractions. The room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Great view of the bridge and a just few feet from the lake. The rates were very reasonable, much... More

I booked a room last Sunday on their website which showed rooms as available. A day later, which happened to be one day before my trip they cancelled the room. I had to scramble to find another hotel, and since it was a last minute reservation it ended up costing me more money, for a much smaller room. The mistake... More

In response to your rather misleading review I would like to respond. Your reservation was requested (not booked) and responded to on Saturday, July 18, 2015 at 11:06 a.m. (first printing of the request) to check for availability and (second printing of request) at 11:33 a.m.. (same day) at which time you were informed the room you were requesting was... More

Situated on Lake Huron. Great views of the lake. Older motel, but the rooms clean and beds are comfirtabke. Close to town, ferry, and other attractions. Bagels, cereal, toast with coffee and juices in the lobby. The owner is very personable.

The room is clean and has everything that you could want. The view of the lake is perfect. We decided to stay another day because we felt so... More

We were delighted to find Beachcomber Motel on the water. It is quaint, clean and just what we needed. It is a bike ride away from downtown and so we were able to just ride our bikes to the pier and get on the ferry for Mackinaw Island. There are also bike trails right into town as well so the...
