I stayed here just for a place to sleep. I needed a cheap place so I could make the trip affordable. The price was perfect. I'm pretty sure that I was only one of about 5 rooms booked there but they stuck a family with little kids in the room next to me the first night and the walls are... More

Room was ok--not overly clean but tolerable. the 2nd room couldn't get the a/c into it so we had to ask for a fan. Would have been nice to open the windows but since they had no screens and we were on the 2nd floor, decided that was no good. Needs quite a bit of upkeep done but hopefully it... More

We stayed at this hotel on accident..the hotel we originally booked did not have a late check in and was closed when we got to town. This place was open, friendly, and had a room for us after 1 in the morning. As we got in so late we didn't take advantage of the pool or any other amenities, but... More

We ended up arriving at our destination early and could not get the extra night next door. This hotel is under new management and was a pleasant surprise, the rate was great, staff was very friendly, room was clean and it had a nice pool area. One suggestion, book rooms directly, it is much less expensive, the hotel gets more... More

We stayed at this hotel and it was pleasant experience. The hotel is under new management. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpfull. The room was very clean and spacious. We really enjoyed the entire stay. The breakfast in morning was very nice with hot waffle. We will come back again.

Called hotels.com and they said I had to cancell with the hotel. By the time I talked to everyone at Hotels.com and everyone in Mackinaw County I was screwed and paid for... More

Well, the highlights..... Clean room, working TV, working A/C and clean beds. Disgusting pool (Brown...... I swear they turned the tap on and let-er-rip!.... no hint of Chemicals). Front desk lady was helpful, but foreign and slightly hard to understand. Breakfast was kinda a joke but what do you expect for bargain-basement prices in such a touristy area? Wasn't expecting...

The room my daughter and her family was put in was supposed to be a two room suite w /hot tub. it was very small. Had to climb over things to get to the hot tub. The sheets were very dirty, when asked for... More

Upon check-in I was asked to identify my name on a list of reservations written on a spiral notebook with names, phone numbers, and personal information listed. We were given one key for a family suite with 8 of us and told there were no more. That key would not open the room so we were eventually placed in two... More
