Loved our entire stay at your beautiful lakeshore motel. From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out, excellent customer service. Room was very clean and we enjoyed being right on the lake. Campfire s'mores in the evening were such a nice touch. Everything about our stay was perfect and we can't wait to visit the area again and hopefully stay with you!
The room was a little dated but it was very clean and perfect for a couple for a few days. Breakfast was the typical hotel breakfast with waffles, donuts, fruit, eggs, biscuits & gravy, coffee, juice, etc. The best part of this place in my opinion is the view (pay the extra money for the lake view) and the nightly fire pit s’mores on the beach. The guy who takes care of the breakfast and the fire pits is really nice and helpful.
Friendly greeting upon arrival with this very reasonable motel on the beach. Large rooms, with the exception of the bathroom, with balcony, overlooking the water and the Mighty Mac. The truly special experience at this place is the nightly bonfire on the beach with smores to roast on your own. They build 6 fires along the beach so each family can have their own. Roast a marshmallow as the Mighty Mac lights up at night.
I have stayed at many hotels in the area over the years and first time stayed here this year. Everything about this stay was relaxing. The rooms were very clean. The grounds were well maintained. I loved the added bonus of bonfires at night time on the beach with complimentary s’mores! The breakfast was very good as well and always restocked in a timely manner.
I feel like I’ve been duped by the reviews. I spent a lot of time researching places to stay and can typically tell by a combination of the reviews and photos. This photos had me question this place but the reviews had me book a stay. While the staff was friendly, the added fire at night was incredible and the view truly amazing - the room was not. It smelled like must and mildew, the carpet was dirty, the walls were scuffed and you entered through the bathroom. The door to the bathroom was so dirty it looked as if it was not cleaned in years. I wish I would have gone with my gut.
My husband and I had a great time at Clearwater Lakeshore Motel. Our room was exactly as described, clean, well maintained, comfortable. The breakfast provided was very nice. He (the owner) had everything you could think of. Greeted us both morning with a big smile and made us feel so welcome. Also in the evening at dusk he would place chairs around several small bonfires and pass out S'More bags and sticks for anyone who would like. We will definitely be coming back.
Beautiful property inside and out. Very well maintained. Lakefront rooms and views. Beautiful views of mackinaw bridge too. Nightly bonfires & s’mores provided. They also provide paddle boards and kayaks. Nice pool and hot tub. Great breakfast. Very friendly staff. Definitely recommend.
Very nice and clean. Bonfires on the beach and smores provided by the staff. Awesome place to stay! Clearwater Lakeshore is a little off the beaten path, away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag in Mackinaw City. They provide free breakfast and the staff are very nice and welcoming. Clearwater Lakeshore is also very affordable compared to the chain hotels and motels in the city. Nice beach area. The area is also pretty quiet compared to the rest of Mackinaw City.
Arrived about 5:30'ish and were warmly greeted. We were awarded with a first floor unit and immediately noted how clean the room was, with an excellent view of the Mighty Mac in the distance, the curve of the nearby shore, and a glimpse of the Grand Hotel and the docks on the island. Sat out on the "beach" meeting other guests until sunset. Then a gentleman in an ATV pulled up to the 8 fire pits on the sand, filled them with seasoned wood, lit them all to give us all a warming fire until 10 pm, and gave us a paper bag containing ingredients for s'mores. It was an amazingly relaxing night and breakfast the next morning was awesomely filling, better than the majority of big name hotels. We highly recommend the Clearwater and would return again. Plus the price was right, much cheaper than staying on the island. 5 stars!…
Employees are always friendly and helpful Very clean rooms. Breakfast good with plenty of choices. Wife especially loves the fire pits at night. Very relaxing atmosphere being that they are not in town.
