We have stayed here many times and will go back again. Rick and his staff are very friendly and the place is immaculate. We love the hot tub and pool and the location is very convenient. Right across the street from the lighthouse and close enough to walk downtown if need be.

Wanting a room with a hot tub, we noticed the sign for the Lighthouse View Hotel in Mackinaw City, Michigan. We knew it was off-season, so we weren't surprised that the inside pool was covered. The owner offered to uncover it, but we told him that wasn't necessary. The room was clean and large. The bed was very comfortable. The... More

My husband and I stayed here and it was so very nice. The owners were so sweet and helpful. The location was perfect, right across the road from Mackinaw Bridge. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We would definitely stay here again. And the price can't be beat.

Because this motel received such great ratings for their cleanliness and repeat customers, my husband and I gave it a try. I've got to admit, we are "snobs" who stay at places like the Crown Plaza and Holiday Inn Express. This motel is a wonderfully kept secret. The motel is across the road from the Mackinac Lighthouse which is beautiful.... More

Nice motel, with a beautiful view! Clean, traditional style older motel. Didn't quite have a fresh smell upon walking into the room but not an awful smell either. Parking spots were a bit tight for our Ram1500 truck. Not enough room for someone to park on either side of us without "dooring" or brand new truck which made us a... More

We were pleased with our stay here. A good view of the bridge and quite a bit less expensive that the one across the street. From our room, we could see the bridge through the trees. This was especially cool to see at night. A real "Mom and Pop" motel owned by regular nice folks. The rooms aren't large but... More

As I said in my profile...when we stay at a motel/hotel I am basically concerned with cleanliness, a comfy bed and a hot shower (price also of course as I'm frugal with my discretionary income). I don't travel to spend my time in motels/hotels so my need for amenities is pretty low. I don't have any use for hot tubs,... More

This motel had everything we wanted in a room. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I asked about restaurants in the area and they happily gave me their favorites. Our room was clean and very cozy. I will definitely stay again, the view was worth every penny.

This is a very clean, well kept motel with reasonable rates. I enjoyed the location being across from the lighthouse and water as well as a very short distance to the main shopping area. The staff were all friendly, professional and kind. The pool was well maintained. My only complaint was the beds were pretty hard but it would not... More

This is an older, more traditional motel that features actual room keys (vs. computerized cards). It's nicely located directly across from the Mackinaw Lighthouse Park and also offers a good view of the bridge from the parking lot. Comfortable and clean room with friendly staff. We stayed at the end of June 2013. The only problem, and it was a... More
