We spent two nights in January with our dogs. Clara gave me a warm welcome at the front desk and Mark shouted "Welcome to the Vindel !" to us across the courtyard. We prefer the family owned motels for this very reason. The room was spotless with a frig, microwave, coffee maker and flat screen TV. The room has been...

Really great place to stay! Owners Mark and Clara will go the extra mile for you making sure they are able to help you out in any of the needs that may come along. Example, one of the motorcycles in our group wouldn't start, Mark gave her a ride to the closest U-Haul place which was 45 mins away and...

We stayed at the Vindel Motel for a weekend in Aug on the recommendation from another motel owner up there. Very clean and nicely decorated room and has a pool. Restaurants close by as is the main shopping area of Mackinaw City being only 3-4 blocks away. Very happy with everything!

It's not fancy, but it is clean, quiet and comfortable and the reception clerk was very nice. When we entered our rooms (we had two) it was obvious that the owners have been updating the motel. If I had to be picky, the only thing they might try to change is the location of the clothes hanging rack. The door...

We visited Mackinaw City for Corvette Crossroads. The managers of this motel made you feel special. Although they did not supply a breakfast, they did have mini fridges and microwaves available to store and cook your own food. There is a market on the other side of the bridge within walking distance to the motel. The main area of town...

We stayed 3 nights and much enjoyed this small, non-chain motel. Beds are comfortable. Good rates during "high season." Close to everything in Mackinaw City, yet quiet. The pool is a nice plus. Everything is well kept and clean. Nothing but high marks. Curtain at sink area affords privacy as needed - appreciated!

Old school motel with great location for Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island visit. Right off I-75. My daughter and I arrived quite early (10 am) wanting to spend the day on Mac Island and owners were wonderful allowing us to check into our room ( which luckily had just been cleaned) at this early time. So greatly appreciated. There is...

Stopped here on our way home from Clare. The rooms were updated and had everything required for a good night's rest. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. With dining recommendations. Motel is very convenient to all of the local attractions.

We were so impressed with the Vindel. Everything was SO clean. Clean room, beds, pool, and shower. Friendly staff, they welcomed us warmly and invited us back. Price was amazing- an incredible bargain. Love the location because it's close to everything but more towards the residential part of town, and away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists. We...
