This is a basic mom & pop motel, with the bonus of a hot tub, an indoor pool and an outdoor pool. They even serve a small continental breakfast--with awesome biscuits and gravy! The room was clean and the staff was friendly.

This is the most filthiest hotel I've ever seen in my life. Everything is extremely dirty. The beds had spiders crawling everywhere. My bathtub was clogged so when I asked the front desk for help they made me unclog it myself rather them do it. If I could choose between sleeping in the car and this, I would choose my... More

In mackinaw city while most lodging options are cashing in the season and weekend rush , it is kind of difficult to get options that fit in budget. Starlite is 5 mins away from the popular cruise parking lots and connects very well to the hotel/ restaurant district of Mackinaw city. With a fast check in , average breakfast spread... More

This is a tourist town (read: expensive hotels) and this is a decent family-owned property. If you are looking for a view of the bridge, a beach hotel, room service, or a post-card hotel, this is not for you. On the other hand, if you are looking for a clean, decent sized room, in a family-oriented budget hotel, you will... More

A nice clean affordable property. Room was clean and comfortable. If you want brand new, soft mattresses than go elsewhere. This is a budget inn for a reason and was perfect after a long day on a motorcycle. Heated indoor and outdoor pools and a hot tub. Has a nice little continental breakfast and good coffee. Again a budget inn... More

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.
