I will be coming back to this motel! The staff is very friendly and the room was neat and clean! The only complaint I have is we stayed in a room on the lower level and every time the people above us used the shower or flushed the toilet we could hear it loud and clear. It wasn't a big... More

I booked this stay online sight unseen. The room was clean, but unfortunately I did not get a room looking out over the Lake. We were only there for a stopover so didn't really matter. Office staff was great to work with and the lady taking care of the breakfast bar was really friendly. (Hope she got her new waffle... More

Stayed several days and I would definitely return! Daily room service was great, breakfast waffles yummy, staff very friendly, and evening bond fires fun. If you are looking for clean reasonably priced place to stay, pick this great motel!

We enjoyed our stay from the pleasant and informative check-in until we left. Our room overlooking Lake Huron was clean and comfortable. We sat out on our balcony and enjoyed watching the bonfires along the shore and the bridge in the distance . The manager set out the wood for the guests who gathered around. The room had a good...

To start, I am not high maintenance but usually stay in at least a 3 or 4 star chain hotel. The word, "motel" scares me along with anything lower than 3 stars. I am sooooo glad I listed to the people on tripadvisor. We had the most wonderful stay. it's a smaller motel so they fill up fast. It looked... More

We found our room most inviting with a great view! We had a sandy beach, fire ring, and a view of the bridge and the island. The breakfast was fine and a chance to visit with fellow travelers at the community table. All of the folks who took care of us were most pleasant. We will stay there again the... More

Think about what you want in a place to stay, now roll it all together and you are very close to The Clearwater. Comfortable room with a balcony over looking Lake Huron. Free Wi-Fi that worked very well. New owners have kept up the quality from listening to folks that have come here for 18 years. Clean. I can't forget... More

This hotel has a beautiful view of Mackinaw Bridge and Mackinac Island. The room was very clean and beautifully decorated. The room had a wonderful balcony with 2 chairs and a table just right for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. The room has a very warm feeling to it and was very comfortable. We enjoyed our... More

Rooms are spotless as always, view beautiful and accommodations very client friendly- grills, rockers, lawn chairs, sand games. Office and breakfast staff friendly and helpful. Well lit parking. Overall, excellent.

For a non-chain motel, this place was clean, convenient and economical. From the jaccuzi to breakfast, to discount Ferry tickets, everything was on point. We had a lakeside view with a beach. There is a firepit and chairs if you are so inclined. Very accomodating and I would stay there again.
