Due to the Capri Motel closing early for the season they had transferred our reservation to the Starlight Budget Inn. A very nice motel, clean, friendly staff. Enjoyed coffee and muffins with the manager each day for breakfast in the office. Highly recommend the Starlight Budget Inn. The rating above is for STARLIGHT AND NOT CAPRI.

The room was nice. The pool was also very nice. I had a nice stay in Mackinaw City. The motel was very close to downtown and the stores and shops. I don't know what more to add other than I had a very enjoyable stay in Mackinaw City

We travelled with another couple 7 hrs. on the motorcycles and we were tired and just wanted to get a room and relax....well! It looks okay maybe outdated on the outside.
We asked for a room $190.00 American for a double room...highway robbery!
Get our keys and open the door...then it hits ya....an overwhelming stench of mustiness!
The room hadn't been cleaned in months ( spider webs with dead bugs in them) all over in the shower and the curtains. The bathroom floors were soft and wet! The beds had clean sheets on them but they had been there awhile cause the dampness smell was in the sheets! MOLD CITY!!

This motel should be condemned! The rooms were smelly, there were ants climbing on the walls, the carpet was filthy and the air conditioner didn't work. We paid for this room through Motels.com and when we asked for a cancellation within 24 hours of booking, the clerk refused our request and called the police when we insisted that he give us a copy of our receipt. The worst motel experience we have ever had. We left and the next morning I contacted motels.com and they refunded some [not all] of ore money.
