Room is comfortable and quiet, and the view is stunning.

Beach

Was a very reasonably priced property for the area. Great view and staff was friendly. Parking felt safe and easy, did not feel overcrowded for spots. Pool/Hot tub were in serious need of assistance and repair. Hot tub was pure rust. We opted to not use either. Our room was unfortunately next to breakfast area so it was loud in morning, however this was a last minute reservation so we can't really be too upset.

Okay

Wonderful stay. The nightly firepit and free smores was a very enjoyable experience with a beautiful view of the lake and the Mackinaw bridge.

The staff is top notch! They go the extra mile and then another mile! They have 6 firepits lit and they give you smores ingredients and a skewer to roast your marshmellow.Breakfast includes fresh fruit and bakery goods.A rare gem of a motel.Thank you Clearwater for a wonderfull stay!

The owners do a very conscientious job of maintaining the property. The beach is lovely, and there are fire pits every evening.

great friendly staff and great location

We were so pleasantly surprised by this property. Rooms are clean and spacious, multiple bon fires on the beach with amazing views of fireworks, helpfull front desk. An overall great experience.

Easy and safe. Rooms are small. Bed is comfortable bathroom super small. Excellent view. Super clean. The bonfires on the beach are awesome Only soap is body wash in the shower. Bring anything you may need.

We liked how clean and quiet the area was. The property was very accommodating. We will return for future visits.

Clean room, super friendly staff!! Only complaint is the next morning there was a lot of noise like someone banging/fixing something above us. We paid $265 for a room and couldn’t even sleep in (on a Sunday) or have a relaxing morning because it was so loud…

Clean rooms, great view, beach was ok. Not great for kids but ok. Friendy staff that were very nice. Would definitely return

Excellent facility and location on Lake Huron…close in to the ferry and town.

Great place to stay! Staff was friendly; Ralston was everywhere doing everything with a smile. Room was clean, quiet, with a beautiful view of Lake Huron and Mackinaw Bridge. Loved the fire pits on the beach and the s’mores.

Awesome all around stay!

The hotel was good. My husband was pleased with the choice of TV channels (lots of sports channels) and we loved the view and sitting by the fire each evening. The bed was a little harder than we’d like, but nothing is like the bed you’re used to at your own home. The only “complaint” I would have is the water pressure. But even that wasn’t enough to make our visit unpleasant. We enjoyed our stay at Clearwater Lakeshore.
