This was a nice, clean hotel. Great for the price. Nice customer service. It is right across from the lighthouse and the Mackinac Bridge. Close to restaurants and shops. This was our first time staying in the motel but we will be back!

We had a very nice and clean room and right across from the Lighthouse park. The pool was nice and clean and the bed was very comfortable. We have stay there before and will stay there again next time we are up that way!

This was the cleanest room I've ever stayed in. Even the baseboards had been dusted. The bed was comfortable and the room nicely decorated. You couldn't ask for nicer staff or location. It was right across the street from Lake Huron with a beautiful view and close to the ferries to the island. It's a small motel, and you won't... More

Hotel is very nice. Customer service is very good. Our room was perfect for a one night stay and my kids enjoyed the pool. I liked the view of the Lighthouse and Mighty Mac as well as it is very nice that this is walking distance to restaurants and shops! This is our second stay and will make sure we... More

This motel is perfect for a budget stay! It's close to everything! My husband and I stayed here two nights; we walked around the city the first night. The motel is close to several restaurants and ice cream shops. Walking around everywhere wasn't a chore because everything is so close. There's even a pizza delivery place that goes right to...

Rooms were old and dated. The TV was so small could barely watch. Room had old air-conditioner in the wall. Couldn't regulate the temperature. Parking lot is really small hard to get in and out of. Not located near any restaurant. Wouldn't stay here again.

We took a spur of the moment trip and came across this motel! We throughly enjoyed the price, the location, and the basic amenities provided. No frills, great price. Perfect room to lay your head on! TV, free wifi, quiet, and great view of the bridge. Near to local food, bars, and ferry to Mackinac Island (free shuttle to ferry).... More

Great motel across from the park at the bridge side. Clean and comfy. Still close enough to the main street to walk. It's quitter at this side of town. The view of the bridge at night is just as majestic during the day.

This is an older mom and pop style motel. While the rooms are small and the decor is a bit dated, they are very clean and the bed was comfortable. The motel is located close to the Mackinac Bridge so has an excellent view of the Straits of Mackinaw but is far away from the main part of town and... More

I made a reservation for a Thursday night and upon arriving at the the office I was first greeted by a terrible musty odor😬. I was then informed they had my reservation for the night before on Wednesday not Thursday !!!! They would not honor my reservation for Thursday night and would not refund my money for the wrong night.... More
