The Beachcomber has a great view of the lake and sunsets. It has a nice clean private beach right next to the public beach. The lake was clean and not stony, so it was pleasant to walk out for a swim. New owners took over this summer and replaced all the carpeting and the rooms, towels and blankets were all... More

Not a 5 star resort, but Port Austin doesn't have any of those. Great value. Private beach. Easy walk to breakwall and marina. Easy walk to any eating place in town. Owners Glenn, Jill, and Gary made sure the room and everything else was great. Thanks for a great stay.

Checked a few places in town on an overnite getaway. Beachcomber looked ok. Talked to the manager/owner, she offered to show us a room and we learned she/they have been renovating since they purchased earlier this year. It's not as nice as it's going to be, but good enuf. Good bathroom & shower. Decent bed. And clean and convenient. A... More

This was our second time at the beachcomber for our annual girls trip. This time was much better than the last. New owners Jill and Glenn were awesome! Our room had new carpet, and much cleaner than last time. The pool was nice and clean. Love the beach and views are awesome! Great that it's walking distance to town. Jill... More

Beautiful location- just a short walk to downtown. Right on the beach and next to a small park with additional beach space and kayak rentals. The motel is nice- a bit outdated but clean! The new owners have put some time and effort into it. Would definitely stay here again!

I recently stayed at this motel for one night and would definitely recommend it for a summer vacation getaway. I stayed in room 8B which was absolutely worth the extra money. 8B is a large room literally right against the sand of the beach with wonderful views all around from large windows overlooking the lake and the beach. From the... More

We came to celebrate our 26th anniversary. The owners are VERY friendly and helpful. The grounds were clean and well landscaped. The beach was incredible!! Very clean and sandy and the water was clear and weed free. The inside of the unit was a little dated, but did have brand new carpet and linens. The unit was cleaner than most... More

The Beachcomber location alone is reason enough to stay here. Easy walk into town for shopping ice cream, and the farmers market. Private Beach with fire pit. Right next to a beautiful park that includes a play ground, pavilion, and volleyball. Quick walk to the pier and out to twin sisters rocks. The new owners Jill and Glen are the... More
