7.7 Good
Pros:The location was great, near restaurants (Blue Water Grill & Bar) and activities (Ugly Annie boat ride under the bridge). There was a view of the bridge and a small beach access.
Cons:The shower needed to be addressed (visible mold and stained tiles). Also it would be beneficial to have a drop box for room keys for those checking out early.
8.2 Very good
Pros:Great location on beach looking toward Mackinac Island. Easy access to town. Quaint older motel. Clean.
