It is great rate for Mackinaw City. I drove in while it was getting dark after driving for six hours. Gail at the desk, got me into a room in a matter of minutes for a pretty good price. I think she could tell I wasn't feeling well and got me in very quickly. She also remembered me stopping in...

This place is very nice for the price. Just outside of the main strip of Mackinaw City. It was quiet and comfortable. There was a complimentary breakfast which was a nice surprise. I would absolutely stay here again in the future.

This is like going back to the 60's. The place has parking right in front of the rooms with a little chair out on the porch. Tiny bathroom with new tile and the standard set up of the day. It was very clean and the staff person was very friendly and up beat. The location was fine and a short...

The room and the furniture were outdated. There were some bugs inside the room. We did not find this room for the money we paid ($90 plus). Since it was just a one night stay, it was okay, however we did not like it at all. The breakfast was good though,

We spent a week at the Starlite in early June. The Starlite, as I suggest in my title, reminds me of places we stayed at on family trips to Santa Cruz or Virginia Beach in the 50's. Beach town motels. Small but well kept, with everything thing you need. This is the Starlite today. Our room was impeccably clean. As...

This is the most terrible motel experience i had!!! After one day trip, all i want is a clean room and a shower. The carpet in the room is wet/humid and sticky. The shower head is only dripping AND there was NO hot water!!!!

Very family friendly. A nice little breakfast in the morning. Very accommodating. Has an outdoor pool. My youngest left his hat behind when we went to the UP, we were able to pick it up on our way back through. Walkable to downtown.

Just off I-75 turn right and there it is !!! Take a trip back to childhood with bathroom tile and a plastic chair outside each one level room. The room was clean, smelled fine and the price certainly was right for a one night stay. Ferry service to Mackinac Island is down the road a few blocks as is Mackinaw...
