We had a nice clean room and appreciated that this is a mom and pop hotel. Which to us means friendly service and advice on where to go, how to get there, best mom and pop places to eat and what to avoid. We were not disappointed at all. The wifi worked, the continental breakfast was nice. There is a...

The lady at the front desk was great! She has happy, helpful and friendly. She explained check-out times and amenities clearly upon arrival. We were surprised that there was a pool, hot tub and breakfast, and couldn't have been more pleased! The room was older and smelled like Grandma's House but we weren't expecting much, especially for the price paid....

Staying here for labor day weekend and got to say it's just short of disgusting. The room doesn't have good air conditioning at all. It was 86 today and we never could cool off. Breakfast choices are awful and the hot tub and pool need a lot of maintenance. They were both murky and not clean. If your trying to...

This is a basic mom & pop motel, with the bonus of a hot tub, an indoor pool and an outdoor pool. They even serve a small continental breakfast--with awesome biscuits and gravy! The room was clean and the staff was friendly.

This is the most filthiest hotel I've ever seen in my life. Everything is extremely dirty. The beds had spiders crawling everywhere. My bathtub was clogged so when I asked the front desk for help they made me unclog it myself rather them do it. If I could choose between sleeping in the car and this, I would choose my...

In mackinaw city while most lodging options are cashing in the season and weekend rush , it is kind of difficult to get options that fit in budget. Starlite is 5 mins away from the popular cruise parking lots and connects very well to the hotel/ restaurant district of Mackinaw city. With a fast check in , average breakfast spread...

This is a tourist town (read: expensive hotels) and this is a decent family-owned property. If you are looking for a view of the bridge, a beach hotel, room service, or a post-card hotel, this is not for you. On the other hand, if you are looking for a clean, decent sized room, in a family-oriented budget hotel, you will...

A nice clean affordable property. Room was clean and comfortable. If you want brand new, soft mattresses than go elsewhere. This is a budget inn for a reason and was perfect after a long day on a motorcycle. Heated indoor and outdoor pools and a hot tub. Has a nice little continental breakfast and good coffee. Again a budget inn...

Being basically a tourist town, the hotels in Mackinac City are very expensive and not really taken care of. Since we would be out and about for most of the day, we were looking for a place that was clean and inexpensive so we would have more funds to have fun with. Starlight Budget Inn was perfect! It is a...
