This motel is perfect for a budget stay! It's close to everything! My husband and I stayed here two nights; we walked around the city the first night. The motel is close to several restaurants and ice cream shops. Walking around everywhere wasn't a chore because everything is so close. There's even a pizza delivery place that goes right to...

Rooms were old and dated. The TV was so small could barely watch. Room had old air-conditioner in the wall. Couldn't regulate the temperature. Parking lot is really small hard to get in and out of. Not located near any restaurant. Wouldn't stay here again.

We took a spur of the moment trip and came across this motel! We throughly enjoyed the price, the location, and the basic amenities provided. No frills, great price. Perfect room to lay your head on! TV, free wifi, quiet, and great view of the bridge. Near to local food, bars, and ferry to Mackinac Island (free shuttle to ferry)....

Great motel across from the park at the bridge side. Clean and comfy. Still close enough to the main street to walk. It's quitter at this side of town. The view of the bridge at night is just as majestic during the day.

This is an older mom and pop style motel. While the rooms are small and the decor is a bit dated, they are very clean and the bed was comfortable. The motel is located close to the Mackinac Bridge so has an excellent view of the Straits of Mackinaw but is far away from the main part of town and...

I made a reservation for a Thursday night and upon arriving at the the office I was first greeted by a terrible musty odor😬. I was then informed they had my reservation for the night before on Wednesday not Thursday !!!! They would not honor my reservation for Thursday night and would not refund my money for the wrong night....

Just a so-so place with not a great lot to recommend it. I will say though, that it was very clean. Was within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Tiny room with few amenities and over priced for what it is. You should be able to find better for the same amount of money or the same for cheaper.

Checked into the motel around 4:30 pm in the afternoon and by 6:30pm the smell of must and mold was so overwhelming...definitely will not stay again. Gross, gross. Pay the extra money and stay at another hotel.

Nice place to stay, staff was friendly. Some rooms are small, but they were clean and comfortable. It was quiet and in a nice spot in town, away from the busy business district, but within walking distant to city beaches and fort.

The rooms are clean and neat which is all I am looking for in a hotel. We don't spend much time in hotel rooms so it doesn't need to be grandiose and modern. Location was great, about a 5-10 minute walk to downtown depending on how fast you walk. A little bit of a hike to the Arnold ferry docks...
