Nice place to stay, staff was friendly. Some rooms are small, but they were clean and comfortable. It was quiet and in a nice spot in town, away from the busy business district, but within walking distant to city beaches and fort.

This is a very clean and friendly hotel. The rooms are a little dated, but this is our place to stay when in Mackinaw. It is a convenient location and easy to find. The flowers, picnic tables, and many chairs add to its charm.

The rooms are clean and neat which is all I am looking for in a hotel. We don't spend much time in hotel rooms so it doesn't need to be grandiose and modern. Location was great, about a 5-10 minute walk to downtown depending on how fast you walk. A little bit of a hike to the Arnold ferry docks... More

The rooms are kind of small but very clean and well-kept. The location is perfect within walking distance of downtown Mackinaw City and across the road from the lighthouse Park and Mackinac Bridge. The staff was very courteous and helpful when questions were asked or other needs arose.

We are currently staying here booked for 4 days and it is a very clean retro motel. They take great care of the property and the rooms. The water has always been nice and hot, the air conditioner is cold and the rooms exceptionally clean. It is right across from the mighty Mac and the lighthouse we had a nice... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lighthouse View Motel after our visit to the UP. So nice to be in a charming motel that is not a cookie cutter chain. Clean, comfortable room and very friendly owners. Great walk along the lakes just across the street and under the beautiful Mackinac Bridge. Sunset over Lake Michigan. Easy and pleasant... More

This was a nice, clean, retro-type motel. The view was great. The room was clean if on the small side and the price couldn't be beat. Don't expect something fancy and you'll be really happy here. I wouldn't want to spend tons of time here due to its relatively small size, but who goes to Mackinaw to sit in their... More

I stayed in this hotel so I could run the Lilac Festival 10k. This hotel was a cute place with friendly, family staff. The hotel was clean and comfortable. It was only a minute walk to the lake / bridge and walking distance to the ferry and downtown Mackinaw. I would stay here again!
