Certificate of Excellence
In the shadow of the Mackinaw Bridge, the Riviera Motel has comfortable, clean, affordable rooms with a one-in-a-million view of the Mackinac Bridge. And with everything Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island have to offer just steps from your room, a lazy stroll will get you to all the major attractions. The Riviera is also surrounded by state parks, so going on a picnic is as easy as saying, "Peanut butter and jelly!" You can enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities including flying kites, skipping rocks, walking on the beach or just enjoying the view. Family-owned and operated, your friendly hosts and their staff are always willing to recommend a good restaurant, call a shuttle or just chat while you enjoy your complimentary cup of morning coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

Very, nice clean place...spotless bathroom and just a nice experience for a smaller, non-chain hotel. I didn't like that the neighbor smoked out back on the deck so we couldn't keep the window open at night. Because it is an older hotel the electric outlets...More

We have stated many places in Mackinaw City & Mackinac Island, & the Riviera is a favorite. The owners are new as of a couple years ago, but it remains much the same. It is not luxurious -- the rooms are basic, but they're clean...More
