I'll be honest and say this is normally a place I wouldn't even consider, but my son and I just needed a place to sleep on our way back to Marquette and the price was right. I was very pleasantly surprised by how clean, quiet and charming this motel was. We will definitely stay here again. It was very retro.... More

The Lighthouse View Motel is a stop-over motel. Few guests, as I understand from the owners, stay more than one night. But as a stop-over place, it's wonderful--clean, unpretentious, and run by people who pay attention to what their guests have asked for over the years. My family travels from the east coast to Wisconsin every summer by car and... More

Stayed here one night and it was perfect for us. We were on 2nd floor with a view looking directly at the bridge framed by big pine trees. One of the cleanest hotels I've ever been in. Hot tub was hot and clean. No breakfast buy the in room coffee was actually good (I have only had that happen about... More

We've stayed here twice and have been happy with it. Rooms are a little dated but very clean. Parking is free and a little tight. We haven't been in the pool, but it looks nice. You can walk across the street and view the lighthouse and better, the bridge. If your rom is in the right spot, you can see... More

This is a smaller motel in Mackinaw City, but by far probably the best. Even though the rooms were a little small they were very, very clean and neat. The beds were quite comfortable. The folks at the front desk were friendly and very helpful. The view of the Bridge is great and the motel is not on the big... More

If staying in Mackinaw City this is the place to go. I love this place!!! It's family owned and spotlessly clean. I will be back next year, we just keep going back!! When you find a great place there is no reason to change!! Right by the bridge and within walking distance to town. It's super great to open your... More

First time staying here, very nice and clean. The staff very pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend to others and I would absolutely return when in the area. It was a great find. .I usually stay at chain hotels, but have found some in the area were not nice.

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
