We had our family reunion here this summer and it was fantastic! The staff was wonderful, the site and the rooms were extremely clean, and the bed was SUPER comfy! There was a fridge and air conditioning in every room, and I was able to fit two pack and plays, luggage for myself and two kids, and a large cooler...

They were priced way below other places. Our second time here. Is an older motel that has been updated, not fancy, but super clean and very comfortable beds. On the water. If you don't want to pay many more dollars just to sleep, this is the place.

We couldn't have been happier. The place is immaculate. It was rainy so we didn't have an opportunity to try out the beach but it was a lovely view of the water. And they were pet friendly. We had asked for a downstairs room and since that wasn't available, they surprised us with a $20.00 discount as an apology.

This is not a big corporate hotel. We enjoy the local feel and talking with the owners. The room was small, but very clean. The beach is great and there are swings for the kids . We used the fire pit to drink wine and talk with other travelers,

This is a great place to stay when in Mackinaw City. Located on the lake and very close to downtown. It was chilly when we were there so we couldn't use the beach, but it looked nice. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. Room included a small fridge and microwave. The rooms are very quiet and...

An inexpensive motel right on the outskirts of town. The rooms were clean but nothing spectacular - but we loved the access to the water. We sat on the beach chairs for a few hours in the evening enjoying the view of the city lights off to the left, and the night sky above. Sunrise experience over the calm waters...

Another great stay. Reasonable priced clean. The staff is friendly and very informative of what is going on around the town. Always feels like your going to visit friends or family. My rooms are booked for next year. Stay here you'll have no regrets.

This place was nice and clean, seemed to be pretty well maintained. We stayed in the king with a jacuzzi, which worked great. Staff was friendly. Beautiful view of sunrise in the morning. My only complaint was dirty AC filter and we didn't need it anyways. I did talk to owner about it and I'm sure he will take care...

First time traveling to this area. Looking for a nice clean place to spend a few nights while we saw the sights in Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island. We stayed in a lakefront room with 2 queen beds. There were four of us, my husband and myself plus our two sons, 20 and 16. Boys don't like to share a...

We go up every year for the annual Mackinaw City Crossroads Corvette show. We've stayed here every year now for about 7 years. Peaceful and quiet. Out of the main traffic flow and easy to get to. Ferry is just a short walk. Family owned. Dick, Lori, Gene and Lisa will make your stay enjoyable. We stay in a unit...
