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

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.
