Lamplighter Motel, Mackinaw City
A hidden gem with a great location.
I like this little motel. It's clean, has fast WIFI, is beautifully decorated, and the owners are very friendly. Mackinaw City is the perfect halfway point for an October trip to help a friend get ready for winter.
The motel has larger theme rooms, but I stayed in one of the smaller rooms without a theme. The room was very clean, and I got a very nice night's sleep for a very reasonable rate. The location is great. It was a short walk to a park with a beautiful view of the bridge.
I have nothing against chain motels, but it is great to find a place with some individual character. I love staying in something unique. It makes me feel as though I am truly getting away from my usual routine. It is the personal touch that makes the difference, and this is place is a real gem.
