Best place to stay in Mackinaw City!
This is a great little motel. The owners are wonderful and take great pride in the property and it shows!!! Rooms are very clean, bed is very comfortable, pool is nice and the owners spend time with you sharing their tips on daily activities, itineraries, restaurants and they ever have bikes to use. Ferry to Mackinac Island will pick up and drop off there, too. They suggested 3 different day trips for us and each one was great! And don't miss Darrow's restaurant a block and a half away!

Little Gem
From the moment we arrived, we were treated like family! Wonderful service is an understatement! Our room was quaint and sparkling clean! The pool area was relaxing. Everything was a short walk, or bike ride (on complimentary bikes) away! I will definitely return to this little gem!

Five stars!!!
The Vindel was a 5 star place. Clean, quality linens and comfortable bedding, quiet and in beautiful shape. I plan on staying here every opportunity I need to be here before the bridge. Friendly owner, beautiful pool, good landscaping and great, pet-friendly place. Thank you Vindel!n
