This is a great place for a weekend family reunion or for any vacation. The rooms are tastefully decorated, roomy and CLEAN. Laurie and Dick, the owners, were so accommodating and very very friendly. They handled the tent, tables and chairs. This motel is very close to the town and the bridge, and in our case -- a hospital, and... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2015

We were looking for an inexpensive, no frills, clean motel walking distance to downtown Mackinaw City. This was a great choice. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The registration process online was very easy. For being an older motel, the room was exceptionally clean, the WIFI was efficient and there was even some breakfast in the morning. We will definitely... More

The accommodations are perfect - rooms are clean and beds are OH SO COMFY! A great bonus when you have had a long day of sightseeing, family fun and shopping. With an indoor water-park (with access rights) right next door, even a cool or rainy day becomes a great time! We had a large group and everyone was very happy!... More

This was the location of our family reunion for 2016. We rented the entire place. The beach and grass areas were great! Amazing views of the island and the bridge. Bonfires at night and we even put a 10' x 20' screen up for movie night. Conveniently located, we rode our bikes to town for shopping and restaurants. Top all... More

We had our annual family reunion at the Beachcomber this past weekend and it was fantastic! Lori the manager and Dick the owner helped from the beginning to the end to be sure we had what we needed. The rooms are very clean and well maintained with each one having a small refrigerator. They also provide a nice breakfast of... More

My wife and I visited for three days in mid July. We were traveling with a small dog and they could not have been more accommodating. This small family owned motel is a very nice alternative to the corporate chain motels in Mackinaw City. It has it's own beach and is within walking distance to the ferry docks. If you're... More

The Beachcomber is located along the southern part of Mackinaw City at the edge of "Hotel Row". As a result it is a little quieter than the most of the chain motels in town. It is still a very short drive and not a long walk to the downtown area. The lakefront rooms give you a beautiful view of Lake... More

Fantastic location and the grounds were perfect. Grassy area, sandy beach and beautiful waterfront view. Plenty of parking for watercraft trailers. Management could not have been more accommodating. The rooms were clean and fresh. We have already planned next years reunion here.

After going through the reviews for all the other higher end hotels down the street, I saw this one and it lived up to its reviews. Great rate, great view, great owners. Can't wait to go back! Right along the beach. Then you can have a light continental breakfast, then take a walk. Rooms are clean and taken care of.

Clean room. Walking distance to city & ferries. Basic continental breakfast, cereal, bagels & english muffins. Disappointed that after making lake front reservations on-line, we received an email the next day stating that our reservations had been canceled and our only other option was a court side room. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.

BeachcomberMackinaw, Owner at Beachcomber Motel on the Water, responded to this review

In response to your review, we are very sorry that you were not more pleased with your accommodations. With our on-line reservation system, (which is a common misconception) you are making a RESERVATION 'REQUEST" for a specific room type. The motel has 48 hours in which to accept or decline the request. As is always explained in the declining of... More
