Stayed here 3 nights, room 105. Clean room, comfortable beds, always plenty of towels. Great location to EVERYTHING! Lake right across the street! Great owner! Great pool! Will definitely stay again, glad I found this place!

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.

If you're looking for a minimalist hotel, this is it. The manager was very nice and accommodating to us. The property is well maintained. The rooms are clean and simple. The price was reasonable for the time we were there. Right across the street from the bridge, Colonel Michilimackinac, and Old Mackinaw Lighthouse. Shepler's Ferry and downtown are within walking...

The location is great - right across from a small park that looks out to the Mackinac Bridge. The hotel offers few bells and whistles, but it is clean and comfortable enough. Get a second floor room if you want a view. The parking lot is a bit tight, but big enough.

The location of this motel is great. Close to the lake, beach, lighthouse and the fort. Just have to walk across the street. It is pretty much a no frills motel. That being said it was clean, the bed was good and the pool and hot tub were nice. I think we would stay there again if traveling to that... More

We thought it was very comfortable loved the location long walk to main shopping but right across the street from the most awesome view of the bridge. WiFi worked great...we did get a room with a jacuzzi tub however it needed a good cleaning as cloudy bubbles we didn't add began to form.

Innkeeper Rick Kelso rocks. A extra clean and tidy hotel even with the big box little screen TV in the room. Outdated but ... We'd like to see (literally) a bigger screen and perhaps mounted on the wall, TV. That's minor though - nice rooms and extra value rooms - like $75 a night and there are jacuzzi rooms! Why... More

Old time mom and pop motel right across from the lighthouse, Mackinac Bridge and the Straits. Comfortable beds and very clean. We will be back and stay here next time. They have a very nice indoor pool. Away from the hustle and bustle of town but a short 10 minute walk to get there.

We were quite impressed with this motel for the price. Less than $70.00 for a room on a Friday night (June 12, 2015) right across from the lake and bridge and just a 5 minute walk to downtown shops, restaurants and ferry boats. The room was clean but small. If you are a person that will pick apart every little... More

My wife and I went up to Mackinaw City to celebrate our 9th anniversary. We chose to stay at the Lighthouse View because we love local, family owned motels and the price was too good to pass up. This place is fantastic! It is right across the street from the lighthouse and the Mighty Mac! The rooms are clean, spacious... More
