It was a family trip with our two adult sons, reliving our trip up north years ago when they we young boys. We were able to get nice room with 3 queen beds and, balcony, refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. We loved the view of the lake and bridge. We enjoyed the fire pits already prepared for us so that... More

This was my girlfriend and I first time staying here. We truly loved our stay. The staff are truly courteous to the guest and are willing to help in anyway. The rooms are small but cozy. The view is beyond amazing. You can see both Lake Michigan and Lake Huron along with the Mackinaw Bridge. Picture perfect view. There are... More

We were very pleased with our stay. They have updated the rooms, one night we had a lakeview room, one we did not. The lake view was of course better but both were clean and comfortable. The beach was great, plenty of chairs, clean, and the water was clean and clear. The water itself is slightly rocky, but not their... More

Charming hotel with condo like feel. The view from the room was wonderful. First floor room had balcony that overlooked the water. Mackinac Bridge in the distance. Nice outdoor area with chairs, grills, picnic tables, and fire pits. The staff brought around wood each evening for the fire pits - get a fire ring early if you want one. Sandy... More

Just got back from a weekend trip to northern Michigan and stayed at the Clearwater. What a nice place! You are greeted by beautiful flowers hanging baskets and buildings that looked like condos. The staff was great, rooms were clean, pillows were awesome and the location was perfect. It's close enough but not too close. Will be staying there again... More

We were very pleased with our stay. Everything was just as advertised, with one exception. I will explain: After many years of going to Disney it is hard to go anywhere else, because they make every effort to make your stay amazing. The team at the motel had the same attitude. They didn't advertise their Disney attitude, but they sure... More

Pros: 1) Our room had balcony with view of bridge and island. 2) Girl at check in was very friendly. 3) No pets!! This is why we stayed. Cons: 1). Air conditioner unit was so loud we barely slept. It looked ancient, and there was no thermostat to regulate temp. 2) Pics of the outside made it look new. It... More

My sister and I were having a 2 night weekend getaway to the Mackinaw area and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We had a king lakefront room with a beautiful view of the Mackinaw Bridge. The Clearwater staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Their continental breakfast included a variety of gluten-free and dairy-free options, which is... More

We booked a lakefront king room & it was exactly as pictured, clean & updated, had small refrigerator & microwave. Nice little balcony with bridge & harbor views, just far enough down the beach that the ferry horns were not too loud. Fire pits & chairs on the beach are a nice touch. The property appears well cared for with... More

Well located. Clean. Fairly recently built. Decent price. Discount price for ferry to Mackinac island. Friendly and helpful staff. 5 minutes to dowtown. Right of the lake with a beach and fireplaces. Many chairs on the beach. What more can you ask for ?
