Would never stay here again. I got shifted here by the owner after booking a two bed room in the Capri Motel. The room was half the size of the pictures of the Capri Motel room, the bathroom I couldn't turn around in, and the continental breakfast was beyond basic. Inside the room, everything looked like it hadn't been updated...

Start with the good, the view of the lake and the bridge are pretty spectacular. The room was not. Very small. Had a distinct odor. The water from the sink smelled very bad. So bad, my wife and I chose not to shower. Cobwebs throughout the room. Needs a serious updating. Beach outside needs updating, maybe a brick wall seperating...

My sister and I have stayed here many times on our way to the UP. The rooms are neat and clean, there is a complimentary mini breakfast and the views from the room of the bridge are great. The Motel is a 1/4 mile out of downtown, so it has a much quieter "up north" feel.

We like this family operated hotel. Always clean and the staff is friendly and helpful...they even built us a campfire last night. The rooms facing the lake are more updated and nice than the others, but overall a good place to stay at a good price if you are like us and prefer an independently owned hotel without all the...

Ants . Did not clean room unless aske or empty trash. owners did not seem to care. Pool area was not clean. Frog was dirty. Ice machine did not work half the time. Bushes smelled like kitty litter. Do your research.

A little smelly and not so clean. You expect poorer service with cheap motel but a standard of cleanliness is necessary. Under the bed hadn't been vacuumed in a long time. A think layer of dust and debris. There were cobwebs with dead spiders in the bathroom. And, overall a little smelly.

This motel is located on Lake Huron. Two stories. Have also single units. Breakfast is located in another motel that is owned by the same people. Breakfast consists of dry cereal, juice, cold biscuits and gravy, coffee, hot water for tea and instant oatmeal. We ended leaving to eat breakfast elsewhere. Our room could use a fresh makeover. Under the...

My wife, son and I booked this so that we had a view of the bridge for fireworks and were very close to the ferry to go to the island the next day. The view was as promised - GREAT! The sheets were dirty and we had to get new ones put on the bed. Bedroom has most normal amenities...

Overall the hotel was a great place to stay. It had great views of the bridge and Mackinac Island. Would recommend bringing binoculars. Breakfast was basic and got the job done. Rooms could use a little bit of updating and maintenance, but doesn't mean it's not a clean room to sleep in. Would stay here again! Also if you stay...
