What a wonderful motel. My 21 year old daughter liked the name and I liked the wifi. It was older, but very clean. We sat around a fire with the owner, his wife and some other people staying there. It was all very homey.

These rooms were the cleanest hotel or motel rooms I have ever seen, anywhere. The owner takes great pride in keeping this place in tip top condition. I recommend this small, family-run motel to everyone who might be staying in the Tawas area. A++

The hotel is run by extremely nice owners. Clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Treated like family while there. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the Tawas area. Reasonable room rates. Quiet too.

My wife and I have been going to the Bambi for three years now and we make it a point to go at least once a year for a few days. Sharon and I love the friendly-family feel that owners Bill and Kay give us. We also love to hear and see Chad(thier dog) when we go. The rooms are always super clean and fresh and whenever we need something from them we get it. I would and do recommend the Bambi to everyone I know. We also enjoy the closeness to town because we take our bikes with us and we can ride anywhere in Tawas we want to go. It truly is a vacation get away when we go there.

From the outside it looks like the places you stooped at with your parents as a kid. But WOW, large immaculate modern rooms with flat screen cable and wifi. Walking distance from downtown, the beach and the lighthouse point! It is really nice to get back in the evening and sit by their campfire! Genuine hospitality will bring us back to Bambi.

Last minute decision to head up north to visit our son who was camping. Our first trip on our new harley. Called Bambi after 9pm on July 4th, for July 5th, thank God they had one room left. Was pleasantly surprised, room was very clean, people very friendly. We would definitely recommend.

I've stayed at the Bambi many times. The owners are great folks, the rooms are always clean, and it's SO close to town (a couple minute walk, or a one minute drive) that it's the perfect place to stay. They now have WiFi, but who cares. It's so peaceful that the last thing I'd want to do is get on a laptop. I mean it... you can hear a pin drop at night. Ahh, peaceful.

I stay here any time I need lodging anywhere near the Tawas area, and I suggest you do too.
