The bells melody is part of a block of motels in Mackinaw City. The staff was friendly, although their organization skills leave some to desire (took them a long time to find my reservation. I was already checking in when they found it. I was lucky to get my reserved room). We stayed in a duplex cabin right on the... More

We stayed in unit 7 and upon entering the room we found many spiders crawling on the walls and bugs in bathroom. We went to front desk and the lady showed us room 9 but it had the same problem. no other rooms available. Sent a guy over to half clean the room and spray some stuff but we ended... More

Very good rating. Rooms are older but beds are very comfortable. Microwave and Refrigerator in room. There is excellent beach access and the beach is nicer than any of the hotels close by, we walked the beach and there was rocks and nasty seaweed at the other hotels/motels but not ours. Great view of the bridge and Mackinaw Island off... More

Poor internet connection with on and off service. Nice area on beach with picnic tables and swings. Nice view of bridge. Not much for breakfast but very nice... More

I have been going to Bell's Melody Motel since I was 13 with my Grandmother and the rest of my family. I feel like I grew up on their beaches and now I am watching my girls play where I played. The staff is always helpful and gracious. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The... More

To start off, I'm giving this an "very good" & not "excellent" rating, only because this isn't a brand new resort with all the amenities. If that's what you want, including the price, go north up the street about 1/4 mile and you'll get that. This place is EXACTLY what I wanted! I wanted a little mom & pop place... More

This was our first stay. It was recommended by someone else. I made reservations almost a month ahead of time for one of the cabins. When we checked in was told that they gave my cabin to another person because their friends were in the adjoining one and they thought it would be nicer for them if they were closer... More

We had stayed here for several years and appreciated the fine view, location, pool and price and friendliness. After recent visit, however NEVER AGAIN! We requested a room on the Lake and were told they all were, but when arrived, faced a gravel parking lot and another motel. Insects, terrible dampness, dirty floors and "non smoking rooms" with all smoking... More
