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 Outdated but ...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

We have lost count of the times we have stayed here. Never had a bad experience. Very nice staff, clean rooms, great view of Bridge and lake, and such a good price! Only thing I wish they had was at least some muffins for breakfast to go with the coffee in the rooms.

From the moment we got there we were impressed. The motel was updated and very cute, The owners were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean,and smelled so good. A lot of the hotels in Mackinaw City smell musty and are a lot more money. The Motel faces the Bridge and right across the Street is a large... More

We had two adjoining rooms on the first floor for two nights with our grand kids. This is an older motel that has been extensively remodeled. Our rooms were very clean and the remodeling was done very well. There was a musty smell to the room when we arrived, though. We didn't hear noise from the rooms next to us,... More
