This was our first stay at this motel and we will definitely stay there again. It was clean, comfortable and the staff was friendly. The view was great also and gave us some great pictures of the bridge. We could have had fancier, but we wouldn't have been any happier with our stay.

This is the first time visit to this motel and thought it was great. Very nice view of Mackinaw Bridge Each room has a separate balcony with view of shore line, ferry docks and Mackinaw Island. Price was comparable to other motels in the area but staff was very good and helpful. Clean rooms and comfortable beds.

We have stayed at this Motel several times, and we keep coming back! The view of the bridge is spectacular! The rooms are clean and nice and the beds are comfy. Not the top of the line but cozy and nice. The staff is also friendly and helpful. You can stay other places that are nicer, but they can't compete... More

We stayed here two nights and visited Mackinac Island. I wish we could have stayed longer. It is serenely quiet and you can walk behind the building and be right on the shoreline. We will definitely go back here. It's just beautiful country! I had the pool all to myself as well as the hot tub. Everything was exceptionally clean... More

We stayed here one night on our way to Mackinac Island, got into town late, dropped out stuff off and went into town. It was a small room but perfect for what we needed (to sleep). The continental breakfast was nothing to die for, but again, you get what you pay for. It was just fine for us.

We stopped here as a halfway point with our three small children on a long trip home to the U.P. The price was great, pool was nice and quiet, room was nice. I don't have one complaint about this establishment. The woman at check in was absolutely kind in every way, which I so appreciated. Would recommend this place!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Clearwater for two nights in late August. Even during such a peak season, the price is very reasonable and we booked it right away, also for the good reviews. It exceeded all our expectations. Our building (6) is brand new. The room is super well-maintained, clean and well-appointed. It is spotless. All appliances in... More

Almost gave it a three but went with four rating, KEEPING IN MIND that this is a budget motel. This facility doesn't pretend to be the Ritz! The staff was efficient and friendly on check in and check out. The room was clean and the bed comfortable enough. The view of the bridge from the little patio on the back... More

We stayed here in early august 2013. At first, we were given a room on the ground floor. It had a musty smell, but one of the staff explained that the dampness of the grass in the morning probably caused it, because of the lake close by. She offered us a room upstairs, which had no smell. The room was... More
