This is a very basic yet comfortabe, quiet motel. Conveniently located near attractions and a party store! A good find for sure. You also don't need to worry about fighting a crowd. The staff is helpful and friendly, too.

The room was a good size, the bathroom was nice (with the toilet and shower separate from the sink and counter), the place was very clean, staff was very friendly, checkout was just dropping your key in a mailbox and it was in a good location. The parking lot is pretty tight but it was fine. Didn't use the pool... More

Very comfortable and clean rooms. Pool opened on day of our arrival. Nice view of the lake. Close to town, the bridge, and the fort. Would go back again! Price is right too. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

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
