Wonderful Location
Great location between 2 parks on the lake shore. Great views of Mackinac Bridge. Very clean & well maintained. Easy walks to restaurants & ferry services. Front & back windows for air flow. One suggestion: please use fragrance free cleaning products.

LOVE it!
Amazing location, view, pool nice and clean, beach access, nice rooms, nice staff. Would stay here again. I listed on social media that I was staying there and I had several people say they love it, too, and always stay there. VERY close to the light house and Fort. A short drive to the Ferry docs.

Owner takes pride
Motel was extremely clean. You can tell that the owner is proud of his faciliy and takes great care of it. Rooms look like they have been recently remodeled. Awesome view of the bridge. Beds are doubles and not firm enough for our liking. I’m a bigger guy, so I didn’t really sleep well. Other than that, it’s a fantastic place.

Our Stay at Riviera
The Motel could use some updating but other than that we were very happy. The Mattresses and Pillows were very comfortable and we slept great!
