Being basically a tourist town, the hotels in Mackinac City are very expensive and not really taken care of. Since we would be out and about for most of the day, we were looking for a place that was clean and inexpensive so we would have more funds to have fun with. Starlight Budget Inn was perfect! It is a... More

We went there around 2 am. They picked up the phone on the first ring itself and spoke very well. Showed us to the room later and the next day when we asked for an hour extension, she agreed with a big smile. Forgot my charger, went back to get it after 6 hrs. Found it with ease. The person...

This was a little gem of a motel. It was clean, quiet and close to attractions. The woman who checked us in was very nice and very helpful. The bed was comfortable and we got a good night's sleep. What more could you want? Would definitely stay again.

Plan to stay here again. Very clean, neat room with fridge, TV etc. Allowed pets which was great. Pleasant person greeted me. I felt safe and secure. Also in a great tourist area. Would have seen much more except the weather was not great. Recommend this place to anyone.

Keep in mind that this is a smaller older 'Mom & Pop' type motel. But it has been well maintained. Small bathroom but that did not bother us. We really don't spend much time in the room as we spend the day & evening siteseeing. The bagels (for breakfast) were nice and fresh; they had other offerings but I stuck... More

What a great find..... we headed up north on a whim with no reservation. When arriving in Mackinaw City late in the afternoon we began looking for a great value and clean place to be and that is what we found. Rebecca at the desk was very inviting and a delight to talk to. We checked into our room and... More

The check in staff was nice and the rooms were very average for this type of hotel. There had been a few improvements in the bathroom (new flooring) which avoided it being grimy, although the fixtures were old. Hot water took awhile in coming, but after running the water for a minute or 2 it heated up. No grounded/3-prong electrical... More

Walked into a very outdated room even for the price. Advertised wi-fi was non-existent in the room. When asked about the wi-if, was told I shouldn't be using my phone on vacation. Chairs in room had residue from previous residents. There was a small hole in the wall above the bed...camera? The 13" tube tv was pretty sweet. If you... More

I stayed here for one night on my way up to Munising. The manager was very nice despite my late arrival. It is located right off the highway and close to the downtown area. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Mackinaw.
