      I liked the location & the price.

    • Couple
      7.4

      The location was good, easy to get to the ferry to the island. For the price it was fine. We appreciated having a bbq to use.

      The room seemed dark as only 1 of 3 lamps worked. Also the internet didn't work in our room.

    • Group of friends
      8.8

      It was clean, quiet, and the staff were friendly and helpful.

      They were having problems with the Wi-Fi and had to reboot their system multiple times. I had online work with tight deadlines which I did meet but lost a total of about three hours that I would have prefered to be working online.

      Was conveniently located for our visit to Mackinac Island. Bonnie and staff went above and beyond to be helpful.

      I liked the "old time" setting. You could sit outside and enjoy the weather and surroundings. New motels do not focus on this. It was charming.

    • Couple

      This is an older, clean, easy, well-located motel to stay in for a trip to Mackinac Island or just hanging around Mackinaw City. It was a nice room with a bed & bathroom, which is all we needed when we were hanging out in the city or on the island all day. It has a pool and even a few suites, along with a playground, so if you take the kids, they will have something to do. Definitely more worth the money than the big box hotels down the street for 3 times the price.

    • Older travelers

      Although it was obviously an older motel, it has been well maintained and the grounds were well kept. The staff was very friendly and hard working.

      Bonnie is great ,real friendly.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Manager (Bonnie) was very friendly and helpful in getting us a good room and in explaining places to go, getting a shuttle to the ferry to Mackinac Island, and in meeting any needs and requests we had. Other staff was also friendly and kept our room clean and supplied. We enjoyed our two day stay very much. It was very peaceful, nice grounds with great access to Mackinaw City. We were able to sleep in one night (from about 12 midnight) until 11:15 am the next day after being very tired from the day before. Great place to relax at a great price!! Highly recommend Starlite to anyone!!!!

      We liked everything.

    • Family with children

      I thought for 100 dollars a night the room was very outdated, found bugs in the motel. At the very least, it was an expierence. In the future, I would for sure pay the extra money to ensure a cleaner motel/hotel. I was not happy. Couldn't wait to check out.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      This was a pleasant, budget-friendly hotel with the bare necessities. The owner was terrific - upbeat, knowledgeable and quick to respond to our needs.

      Lack of basic amenities such as a hair dryer. Needed updating. The mattress was too hard and the basin would've been better if it had had a large counter around/beside it.
