I was running into problems finding a reasonable hotel to stay at in Mackinaw City just overnight while traveling on our motorcycle. Stumbled across Lighthouse View Motel and what a great place. This place was surgically clean! It is dated and fairly spartan but a wonder place to clean up and get a good nights sleep. They had a nice... More

The location was ideally close to our event, Mini on the Mac as well as resturants and parks! Since the demand was so high for the weekend there was no real value for any hotel in the area. The owner/operator was very attentive when we arrived. The rooms themselves are a little dated, but IMPECCABLY clean. Wifi worked fine in... More

I loved all the lighthouses around the property. The location of our room (I wish I remembered the number) was perfect, it was in a corner, and so quiet. It was near where the ice box was, two queen beds, with a jacuzzi. The bathroom was huge. Shower on one side and a giant jacuzzi (much bigger than the other... More

I gave this a 4 star rating because it is an excellent location for Mackinac Bridge viewing and walking the shoreline park in the evening and morning. As I like to take photos, this was perfect - the park was EMPTY of people first thing in the morning as the sun rose, and my partner could sleep while I got... More

Across the street from Lake Huron and very close to Mackinac Bridge. Rooms are very small, but clean. Parking can be tight. Good value. There was an indoor pool, looked okay, we didn't have time to use. Quiet location during our stay.

We wanted to stay the evening prior to our trip to Mackinac Island so found this motel online. Of course you never can tell how a 'motel' will be upon arrival and based on reviews I was hesitant. BUT I can tell you I'm happy with our choice. the room is a decent size, is very clean and perfect for... More

Mackinaw City is a very busy place during summer. Our small family wanted to visit the area, and have a quiet place to stay with a pool. The rooms are a bit dated, but clean and well maintained. After visiting downtown one day, and a day trip to Mackinac Island the next, it was nice to come back to the... More

Room was clean. Not particularly fancy but comfortable. Parking was tight because the motel was full. Nicely located across from a park and a beach. We walked across the street to the water and a close view of the bridge.
