I understand that the only reason people are giving this place good reviews are because they allow dogs, whoopty do. This place is over priced and super dumpy. Other guests are a questionable crowd. It is however a short walk to the beach, but I'd still wear sandals in the shower.

I came to stay a the Port Austin Motel because of the easy access to the beach. They are pet friendly and I could also take my dog on the beach here. Watching the sunset was amazing and relaxing! I planned on staying just Saturday but decided to stay Sunday also. It was not high season so not many people... More

Just returned from a 2 day stay at the Port Austin Motel. First, it is dog-friendly, yay! It is somewhat outdated, and the rooms are very small, but they are clean. Had a coffee maker, microwave and fridge. Close to the beach at the end of the street. Can't beat the location and price!

First of all completely outdated and dirty! Wires hanging from walls for TV. Dirty Carpet from the 70's. Dingy drop ceiling. Exposed wires on a wall where a thermostat was at one time. No iron or hair dryer in the room. Mismatched cabinets. Bathroom so small that you could rest your forehead on the sink while going to the bathroom.... More

The owners of this establishment are very friendly and helpful. It is obvious that they enjoy what they do. The rooms are small but very clean and well appointed. Yes, they are dated but that goes with the comfy feeling and the value given. It is only a short walk to a beautiful beach overlooking Lake Huron which we thoroughly... More

This was a very outdated Mom and Pop motel, but very clean and had a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. We really enjoyed our stay here. On the first night, we had a nice bonfire in the fire pit on the grounds and met some other guests that were very nice. Pets are welcome so they were at the fire... More

The owners were very friendly and helpful with suggestions for things to do/see in the area. The room was clean. The problems we had was that we stayed there at a really hot weekend in July, and the small A/C had a hard time keeping up. It was pretty warm and humid in the room but fine at night. We... More

The couple who run this motel were very friendly and helpful. The room was small but adequate. We enjoyed being able to have coffee in the room in the evening. We enjoyed the walk down to the end of the road to see Lake Huron. It is located near the entrance to the town and down a quiet lane. Internet... More
