After a 10-hour drive, we stayed at Sunrise Motel. The staff was friendly, and the place was clean and quiet and comfortable. It was nice to stay somewhere without incessant hallways and elevators. We kept the sliding door open all night and listened to the waves of Lake Huron.

Very dated motel. Bedspreads are very dated, flooring by the sink looked terrible. The AC unit was so dirty and old, couldn't believe it. No phone, so if a person didn't have a cell phone and you needed help you would be out of luck. By the fridge the carpet was very dirty. The view was very nice, a good... More

We didn't stay at this hotel but another one they owned and came down to use the pool because the one we were at was pretty dirty. Anyways this one was no better. It looks ok from the outside but as soon as I went in and looked up on the ceiling there was hundreds of huge spiders that definitely... More

We go to Mackinaw every summer but unfortunately was unable to get rooms at the motel we usually stay at. So we decided to try this place, which was just a couple of buildings down from the other motel. I had read the good and bad reviews from others but still decided to give this place a try. We had...

Icky cereal, over cooked oatmeal, bagels....that's... More

Disgusting! If you stay here, which you should not, then bring your own cleaning supplies to save yourself the trip to the local IGA. Upon entering our room, a mildew stench greeted us immediately. I went to open the sliding doors which face the lake, but as soon as I touched the blinds, two fell to the floor. The sliding... More

We stayed at this Motel 5 years ago and it was ok then. This time however was a huge disapointment. We reserved 3 nights. We checked into our room and it smells bad. We opened the windows to air it out but there is no screen on the bathroom window! The front window had a screen so we did not... More

Clean room, overlooking the lake. Minimal amenities. Small refrigerator in the room. Nothing fancy, but a great value for the location. Indoor/outdoor pool too. Did not use pool however. We were out of the room mostly and just slept there.

Sunrise Motel is an affordable and nice place to stay for your money. We were given a room on the second floor and it had an AWESOME view of the Mackinaw City Coast-line, bridge, and island! Great Motel

Let me start by saying the reviews of hotels for Mackinaw City are all over the place to the point where you wonder if there are any good motels in town. Most of the lodging in Mackinaw is motel style with doors on the outside. On this trip I was looking for a mom and pop place with very reasonable... More
