I arrived on a Sunday afternoon and noticed that the town was pretty quiet with just a few lingering tourists. After checking in, it appeared I was the only guest and there was an unsavory character cutting through the parking lot. This gave me a mild concern but I soon realized that I should not judge based on one person's appearance. My room was small and somewhat dated but impeccably clean and comfortable. Plenty of hot water and good water pressure! I unpacked, took a stroll through the town and had some dinner. The beautiful park is literally across the street and there is a nice three story viewing platform to watch the action. Unfortunately, during my one night stay, I did not see a single ship!
You can see the attention to detail in the nicely painted doors, flowers, and cleanliness of the motel. The owners were very pleasant and helped me choose my route taking a scenic route to Mackinaw City. Coffee is on by 8am however, there is also a coffee shop next door with wifi for those early birds. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.
