“Comfortable, clean!”
Reviewed June 26, 2011

Me and my family go here every summer and we love it! The rooms are always very clean. There is a pool that we love to lounge around all day. The owners make us feel like family. And if you like camping atmosphere, but do not like to camp, this place feels like camping at night. There is a fire pit out front and everyone who stays there can roast marshmellows and tell stories. There is a short path to the beach and you can sit out on the beach at night and look at the million stars in the sky. It is a great place and I look forward to going up there every summer.

If you want a clean- almost pristine place to stay this is it. The room was basic bed and bath...not fancy, but perfect for what I wanted. I also enjoyed the pool.
The motel has a very friendly enviroment and as a single woman I felt very safe.

We recently spent one weekday night here, right before the big weekend of Cheeseburger in Caseville Festival. The night was hectic and this small motel was about the only place left that had a room, and they still had their sign on late at night. Owners are very, very friendly, helpful people. We paid $84-which is a lot for the room you get, but I imagine all the rooms in town were on the expensive side. The room itself is very basic-queen bed (that is not the most comfortable, but the pillows were the worst ...), a desk/chair, one armchair, dresser/TV stand. Old decor, but that is actually somewhat charming...the bathroom was all tiled and kept up nicely (shower only, no tub in this room). There is a window A/C; but you can still open the windows if you so choose-not many motels or hotels allow that nowadays. Very clean. There is a heated pool; there is a nice firepit area and large lawn with picnic table to gather on. I highly recommend this small family owned motel in Port Austin.

All i have to say is Randy and Patrice were a delight. They treat guests like their children, and some even have the privelige to a night on the town with them.

i have stayed at the sun n sand motel over the last 3 years or so. i usually stay on 3-8 weekends each year. mostly in the summer and early fall, when the salmon fishing is good. the pool is heated and clean and feels great after being on the water all day. the rooms are not fancy but are always very clean and everything is in working order. and the location is perfect only a little over a mile west of town. the owners live on site and always greet the guests with a smile. keeps me coming back!!
