“Great, cheap place to stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Great place to stay, it was quiet, the room was clean and it was close to the ferry to Mackinac Island (about a five minute drive away). Also it was cheap! A definite plus. Wifi was a bit weak when you have a tablet away from the office but this was a minor issue, it *was* however faster than I expected. Overall, a great find for the price.

A clean facility but that ends it. Breakfast available for two motels had about 8 tables is all.
Air conditioner made noise but did not cool. A disappointment. Cheap though. They do have pricier rooms. They may have been acceptable.

We purposely stayed here because other tripadvisor ratings said it was clean and affordable. And it was! Owners were very nice and suggested restaurants, places to go, etc.

We stayed here when we went to Mackinac Island. Reasonably priced. We had a clean room with 2 queen beds. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the Straights, Mackinac Island, and Mackinac Bridge. My daughter loved the swim in and out pool. There is a small playground for the kids. There are also BBQs available for the beach. The beach was nice for walking on however the lake was low so the water was pretty stagnant close to shore. It was like that in front of all the hotels on this side. If you sleep with the patio door open, the seagulls will serenade you in the morning. However, it was a beautiful sunrise! They had the usual continental breakfast of cereal and biscuits and gravy. We would stay here again.

Very nice for a mote with a geat view of the Mackinac Bridge! We stayed here last summer in August when we went to Mackinac Island. The rooms here are kind of old but still affordable & clean. If you go out the sliding door you can go right to the water/sand. The rooms on the upper levels have balconies. The kids loved the indoor/outdoor pool and there is also breakfast available. We loved going to sleep having a wonderful view of the bridge!!

Clean. Good location. On beach. Nice for children. Rooms were old but clean and nice. Susan was great with information for a place to eat and things to see in the area.

Beautiful view of Mackinac City and the bridge. However, I couldn't help wondering the whole time we were there if I might have gotten a nicer room somewhere else for just a few more dollars. Breakfast offerings were few.

Room Tip: Rooms with one single bed are tiny.
