The room was okay. Bed was comfortable. Since it's late in the season I do understand why the pool and Jacuzzi were closed so I paid $10.00 extra for a Jacuzzi room (initially asked for a room with a view but it was snowing so hard you couldn't see the bridge anyway). The Jacuzzi is not made for two people... More

I stayed here June of 2015 (that was not an option in the drop down menu). My visit here is still memorable though. I stayed in a room with the jacuzzi tub. Loved it. The room was clean, quiet, comfortable and it's very quaint from the outside. The view just across the street is amazing! (See pictures). It's literally a... More

This small motel is cute. You can walk right across the street to see the lighthouse, bridge and water. The park is very nice. Super clean room with a comfortable bed. My only issue was the noise from people going up and down the stairs and the room above. It sounded like a heard of elephants. Thankfully everyone settled in... More

This is a very clean and neat motel. It is in need of some updating - but was very nice. The parking lot is very tricky - hard to park a bigger vehicle or one with bikes on the back. Pool was out of service when we stayed. Reasonable price!

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!

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.

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.

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.
