Our stay was welcoming and clean. Fire pits were lit every night by hotel staff and our lakeside room had a great view of the harbor, Mackinaw Island, and the bridge. We enjoyed our stay.

This Motel exceeded our expectations!! They included many free amenities that surprised us. kayaks & paddleboards to use for free. The staff had fires ready for us on the beach and came around with little goodie bags of smores. Excellent view of the Mackinac Bridge. Definitely will come back!
