Budget Inn Mackinaw

This is a basic motel in Mackinaw City with the added attraction of an indoor pool.

Off Highway 23, this modest seasonal hotel across the road from the McRae Nature Park is a 3-minute walk from the scenic 61-mile North Central State Trail and an 8-minute walk from the closest beach.

The simple rooms come with TVs, minifridges and microwaves; some feature whirlpool tubs. Kids age 17 and under stay at no charge with a parent.

There's a heated indoor pool and a picnic area, as well as access to pools at neighboring properties. Breakfast is available.
