I only stayed one night, but almost everything was fine. I'm sure if I'd complained about the broken window lock (room 114), I could have got another room, but at that point in the evening I didn't want to pack up all my stuff again. I'd stay there again, I was interested in the Headlands Dark Sky Park, which is...

The property was well maintained and in good condition. There is both an indoor and outdoor pool and a indoor hot tub. The room and bathroom were adequate in size with a nice décor. Included in the room is a mini-fridge and microwave. A simple breakfast was offered, coffee, juice and cereal. The motel is located just outside of the...

This was one of the last hotels available for a reasonable price in all of Mackinaw City for the Labor Day Weekend/Bridge Walk. The hotel was clean--there was a minor issue involving a cleaning rag with hair left in the bathroom. The guests were courteous and very quiet, more so than many more expensive hotels where we have stayed. It...

My family was on a vacation to Mackinaw and the island. We were very satisfied with the room size, location, cleanliness of the hotel. The breakfast is simple...cereal hot and cold, bagels, bread, coffee...it was better than nothing! We liked the hotel and cost that we bookef an extra night.

This motel is a good stay if you are not looking for anything fancy, just a place to sleep. It is close to all the things you want in mackinaw city and is an affordable price. It is outdated but it was clean which is all that we cared about. The beds are not the most comfortable, but they worked....

We stayed here one night. Passing through on our way to Tech to deliver our freshman. I thought the beds were very uncomfortable. My son said they were great. So if you like a hard bed I guess you'll love it. Basic breakfast. We would stay again. Indoor and outdoor pool too. Easy on and off to the freeways.

Went up to Mackinaw for the weekend with friends and stayed at Budget Inn. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the room was. It was very clean. It looked like the room was newly painted. The bathroom was small, but clean and it also looked like it was newly renovated. Breakfast was ok - they offered cereals, oatmeals, bagels....

This was an attractive, well maintained motel within easy walking distance of the lovely and very touristy Mackinaw City. Our room was a little on the small side but very clean, just lacking a coffee machine. Still, the breakfast provided was very good and our overall stay very nice. Staff were also very friendly and helpful.

2 night stay didn't spend a lot of time in room but for the price we paid it was acceptable. Check in was easy and friendly. Room was a 2 bedroom not a lot of space but worked for us. If you are looking for a clean inexpensive motel this would work for you!
