My stay here was wonderful! Blue Spruce & Lucky Horseshoe Motel & Cabins have the cleanest rooms in the area! I highly recommend staying at this place when needing somewhere to stay in Huron County, MI.

Stayed in one of the cabins on the spruce side. Very spacious room, that had a queen bed and a futon, along with a spacious kitchen. Room was very clean and smelled good! Had two different dressers, which provided much storage. It was a great place to stay!

Very clean and cozy room. Outside my second floor room I had a great balcony to sit on and read. The owners are very nice and quite helpful. Easy to find, and a short walk from town and lake Huron. Worth the trip

Had nice cooking area with microwave, coffee pot & refrigator. Outside was a picnic table, grill & swing. Bed was comfortable & nice TV with cable....

We were lucky enough to get the very last cabin on an extremely busy weekend. The proprietors, Mike & René were very friendly & helpful with area suggestions. The little cabin was immaculate, & had been totally renovated recently. It was somewhat like a good sized motel room with a small fridge, microwave & plenty of countertop space so suited...

We stayed 1 night in cabin #7 while on our way up north. We were amazed about how clean and well-maintained the property was and we loved having a carport to keep our little convertible dry overnight. The service was very friendly and the location was great. We will definitely return if we are ever in the area.

Stayed here for a last minute getaway weekend. It seems that the booking agent we used (another site other then trip advisor) screwed up our reservation-but alas, the owners were super friendly and made an exception for our stay...i.e. In the height of summer travel they only take 1 week reservations and we had only wanted 2 nights... Our cabin...

The location is perfect, everything we needed was a short walk away. The room was clean and tidy and the service was great! We went down to try a bit of fishing, i've never fished a day in my life, but the chap at reception was very helpful with tips and even offered to show us some fish gutting techniques....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have 28 motel rooms and cabins of multiple sizes spread out over 2 acres in downtown Port Austin, just 3 blocks south of the Harbor. Our units vary in size and amenities as do our prices to meet a variety of budgets. Cottage C is the largest unit which sleeps up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms. It is our only unit that is not air conditioned as it was built in the late 1800's. All motel rooms and cabins have air conditioning and all units have a refrigerator. Rooms 2 through 15 at the Blue Spruce have coffee makers and Rooms 8 through 15 at the Blue Spruce also have microwaves. There are two common areas on the property with fire pit, picnic tables and charcoal grills for the guests to use. Our outdoor heated pool is nestled between the motel rooms and cabins. We are seasonal, open early May through mid November. Located in the quiet section of the Village, we are walking distance to the Farmers Market, restaurants and shops. Within a 5 mile radius, you will find horseback riding, kayak rentals, golf course, canoes, miniature golf and our community theater. You can walk the beaches, break wall or visit the lighthouses and museums in the area. ... more   less
