The restaurant and bar were right below and could not hear any noise. The room could use a few more items. Hook in the... More

We normally don't stay at motels but this was a pleasant, nice little place. The rooms were clean and large, though very sparsely decorated. Would have been nice to have a table near the bed where plugs could be easily accessed. Beds were comfortable, we had a lot of trouble getting the temp to regulate in the room, the auto... More

Restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel, so we checked it out. My husband and I ordered burgers, which were excellent. The kids meals were sizeable, and also tasty. Service was great (though the place was nearly deserted) and the price was reasonable.

We went in here for dinner and my wife decided just to have the clubhouse sandwich. It came with fries. The sandwich was great with lots of bacon, nice deli meats, and cheese. Fries were hot and delicious. So she would give it a 5. I decided to have the sirloin steak. It was OK, slightly over cooked but not... More

We just got back from this little gem in Mackinaw City. The owners were super hospitable and accommodating. There's plenty of ample parking and the rooms, while spartan are immaculately clean. We didn't expect fancy soaps or other frilly amenities here- but what we did get was a great night's rest after a long day's travel. While this place didn't... More

I made a reservation at the Ember's Inn a few months ago to visit over Labor Day weekend. I usually stay on the island but I could not find availability with it being a holiday weekend. When we arrived in Mackinaw City it was before noon and we wanted to go straight over to the island for the entire day... More

After a night at a less-than-stellar place, I needed breakfast, and this place was the closest with breakfast (serve it all day). Waitstaff was quick, friendly, and the food came out pretty quick -- and COFFEE WAS REFILLED QUICK AND OFTEN. Struck up a conversation with the manager, who was coming around to check on his customers, and turned out... More

Such a cute and quaint motel! The restaurant offers a great brunch!! Location is perfect right by the ferry. The restaurant was a great size- never felt over crowded and plenty of room at the buffet. Staff was very friendly. Price was very affordable.
