We'd highly recommend the Bambi to anyone staying in the Tawas area. Such amazing customer service from the owners. From first contact to check out, they bent over backwards to help us in any way they could. The rooms are clean and neat and the motel is conveniently walkable to town. Can't wait to stay here again!

When I was with Estee Lauder, I always stayed in 4-5 star Hotels and NEVER a Motel. Now that we have our own businesses and I travel every week, we look for more affordable accommodations. When I told my Assistant that I was staying at the Bambie Motel she thought that I had flipped out! What an amazing jewel! It was extraordinary and I loved every aspect of my stay. The room was perfect...a very comfortable bed, luscious sheets, extreamly clean and very quiet. Michelle and Terry, the Owners, are wonderful and were very accommodating. I will tell everyone that I know, when is the Tawas area, that is the place to be. Just hope that there is always room for me when I am back in that area!

I stayed at the Bambi Motel multiple times over the course of a month. Each stay, the room was incredibly clean and fresh. The owners are very kind and accommodating. They make sure you have a comfortable stay. The motel was quiet at night. The location is awesome. It is very close to downtown, food, shops, public beaches, and Tawas Point State Park. Great Experience!
