.....great review. An older motel but in great shape! The owners obviously take pride in providing well kept and clean rooms at a reasonable price. The downtown shops and restaurants are just a short walk to the east. We were in town for the Mackinaw Straits Raptor Fest. We were also within easy walking distance to the Raptor Fest activities....

The Vindel Motel is pristine clean, beds are comfortable, and hosts are so helpful. We stayed here during the Mackinac Raptor Watch this year. Put this motel on your list of places to stay in Mackinac City. You will enjoy the proximity to all things Mackinac.

I had a real spur of the moment urge to go north and I looked online at motels/hotels that allowed pets. This was at the top of the list. I was able to get a room WITH my pets and found the motel delightful with a sparkling clean and warm room (warm was important because it was about 28 degrees...

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...
