A little smelly and not so clean. You expect poorer service with cheap motel but a standard of cleanliness is necessary. Under the bed hadn't been vacuumed in a long time. A think layer of dust and debris. There were cobwebs with dead spiders in the bathroom. And, overall a little smelly.

This motel is located on Lake Huron. Two stories. Have also single units. Breakfast is located in another motel that is owned by the same people. Breakfast consists of dry cereal, juice, cold biscuits and gravy, coffee, hot water for tea and instant oatmeal. We ended leaving to eat breakfast elsewhere. Our room could use a fresh makeover. Under the... More

My wife, son and I booked this so that we had a view of the bridge for fireworks and were very close to the ferry to go to the island the next day. The view was as promised - GREAT! The sheets were dirty and we had to get new ones put on the bed. Bedroom has most normal amenities... More

Overall the hotel was a great place to stay. It had great views of the bridge and Mackinac Island. Would recommend bringing binoculars. Breakfast was basic and got the job done. Rooms could use a little bit of updating and maintenance, but doesn't mean it's not a clean room to sleep in. Would stay here again! Also if you stay... More

After a 10-hour drive, we stayed at Sunrise Motel. The staff was friendly, and the place was clean and quiet and comfortable. It was nice to stay somewhere without incessant hallways and elevators. We kept the sliding door open all night and listened to the waves of Lake Huron.

Very dated motel. Bedspreads are very dated, flooring by the sink looked terrible. The AC unit was so dirty and old, couldn't believe it. No phone, so if a person didn't have a cell phone and you needed help you would be out of luck. By the fridge the carpet was very dirty. The view was very nice, a good... More

We didn't stay at this hotel but another one they owned and came down to use the pool because the one we were at was pretty dirty. Anyways this one was no better. It looks ok from the outside but as soon as I went in and looked up on the ceiling there was hundreds of huge spiders that definitely... More

We go to Mackinaw every summer but unfortunately was unable to get rooms at the motel we usually stay at. So we decided to try this place, which was just a couple of buildings down from the other motel. I had read the good and bad reviews from others but still decided to give this place a try. We had...

Icky cereal, over cooked oatmeal, bagels....that's... More

Disgusting! If you stay here, which you should not, then bring your own cleaning supplies to save yourself the trip to the local IGA. Upon entering our room, a mildew stench greeted us immediately. I went to open the sliding doors which face the lake, but as soon as I touched the blinds, two fell to the floor. The sliding... More
