My husband and I took our first trip to Michigan last summer, traveling to a different destination around the coast every couple days. We had the pleasure of staying at the Lamplighter Motel. The owner was super friendly, and the evenings around the firepit with other guests at the hotel was a pleasant way to end the evening. The room we had included a little kitchen so we were able to save a little money and cook in. Our room was very clean, and the grounds were nicely landscaped and well maintained. The area itself is quaint and enjoyable. Walked pretty much anywhere we wanted to go, to the ferry over to the Mackinaw Island, restaurants, etc. Absolutely recommend for a pleasant and quaint place to stay and relax. If you want glamour and glitz, you won't get that here.
