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.

The fires every night and the s’mores

👍

Dated and crowded. Old furniture. Poor bed. Disappointing.

Loved the view, the campfires and the location. Will definitely stay there again.

Very clean, great location. In this era of coronavirus, all safety measures were in place. Felt very safe. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony with the bridge view and fire pits. Also, having the use of kayaks is a definite plus! Overall great stay, look forward to a return visit!

Very clean and a great staff. Loved the bonfire at night.

Excellent location! We loved the paddle boards and private beach. Brought brats to cook on the grill and had s’mores at the fire pit. There wasn’t any dish soap, so we felt bad leaving our dishes.

Nice hotel. A bit outdated! Clean and good location

This motel was awesome! Desk Clerks were friendly and helpful, room was clean and had everything we needed, and the breakfast offering was great! This is the first motel I've stayed at in quite awhile where BOTH the sink AND tub drains actually worked. The property itself is beautiful and very well kept. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Weather permitting, DO go down to the beachfront for the bonfire at night!
