What I liked was the cleanliness of the room inside. The outside is old and deceiving in looks. Then you enter a clean updated room.

I’ve never stayed at a motel before, so I’m glad I chose this one. Very clean, spacious and what a nice bathroom. Huge tub/shower combo and everything seemed new. We didn’t need the a/c, but a window unit is there if needed. Very close to the lake and many shops and restaurants. I’d definitely stay here again and highly recommend!

I liked that it felt like a family owned business that actually cares about you and how your stay goes. They were very accommodating to our small family.

It's a fine motel. The staff was helpful and friendly.

A basic motel that was very clean and accommodating. We would definitely stay there again.

Basic motel with bed and bath. Very clean and recently updated. We would definitely stay there again;

Very nice motel! Very clean, comfortable, newly remodeled, microwave and refrigerator were a welcomed addition that we appreciated. Very nice staff! Wonderful place to stay and would definitely recommend to everyone!

My husband and I stayed two nights in October and were very pleased. It was very clean and although it's obviously an old building, it has been kept up well with fresh carpet, paint, and updated bathroom. It's not a fancy place, but there are modern conveniences such as a microwave, mini-fridge, and coffee pot. We didn't need an internet connection, so I can't speak to that. My only complaint was that the mattress was pretty low quality and not very comfortable. It would have been nice to have a few hooks in the bathroom for towels too. All-in-all, a very good value and a pleasant stay.

Stayed at the Wayside Motel for one night because it had a good rating but had never been there before. Found the room to be a no frills but very clean and comfortable. Much cleaner than some more well known places we've stayed at before that cost at least twice what we paid. Was a little concerned with traffic noise for a while but St Ignace seems to quiet down quickly after dark and our sleep through the night was noise free. Parking right outside your door is a plus. Short drive to restaurants and Mackinac Island ferries was nice as well. Would definitely stay there again if we visited the area.

Great price! Clean, comfortable room. Spacious. Bathroom, though a bit small, looked modern. It had a shower, not a shower/tub combo, but that worked fine for us. it's within walking distance of eating establishments, shops, and other attractions. There was plenty of space. Fridge worked great.

Very nice, clean & quiet motel. Convenient to the bridge and ferries to Mackinaw Island.

The staff (I guess she was the owner) was very kind. The price was reasonable and I enjoyed my stay.

Very clean room. Very nice place. People were very nice. I would return.
