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 The motel is nice- a bit outdated but clean!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

My daughter, grandchildren and I had originally booked 2 nights and we were so impressed we stayed an extra 2 days. From the moment we checked in, Jill made us feel right at home. We had a 2 bedroom kitchen unit that had everything we needed. It was very clean and had new carpet."really nice for a 6 month old... More

A Perfect location on the lake paired with a great price! When I was searching for a place to stay in Port Austin, the Beachcomber stood out. It's right on the beach, just a few steps from the room. Second, It's a 2-minute walk to restaurants, shopping, bakery, etc.! From the moment we first arrived, the NEW OWNER Jill greeted... More

I stayed here on the Friday/Sat night before Memorial Day 2014. I booked the room at 4:30pm and arrived same day at 7pm. The office appears to be the owner's residence and I had to stand outside ringing the doorbell about 10min, as she was in one of the units and didn't see me at the door. She voluntarily knocked...

The motel is directly on the beach, about 500 yards from a bridge to walk on to. I watched the sunset over the lake from the bridge and the view was incredible. The motel room itself, was reasonable for the price. The employee at the desk seemed a little too young for her job, and overcharged us from our reservations.... More
