Budget Inn Mackinaw was clean, comfortable, budget minded, and all we needed. It was conveniently located. Although it was a little difficult to find, it was worth the hunt. We would enjoy staying there again!

We stopped here because the sign said "lowest rates". We were quoted a decent price, but it wasn't as low as we found online for the hotel next door. When I told the clerk this they gladly matched that price. So we walked into our less than $50 out the door priced room. The reviews we had read prior were... More

We rented two rooms for our trip to Mackinaw with kids and grandkids. Nice rooms, clean, comfy and the fridge was very useful. Grandkids loved the pool, and we enjoyed the hot tub. Also enjoyed the breakfast to get our day started. Would recommend!

Room was dirty, looks like they only surface clean the room. Electrical plugs don't even stay in the outlets, extremely loose. Front desk was not even close to being friendly.Their breakfast is in another hotel next door & wasn't anything special, very minimal.

I am a budget vacationer so I am used to staying in "cheap" motels and am often nervous what we will find. At Budget Inn Mackinaw we found a wonderful surprise! The room was clean and spacious, it had a separate bedroom inside of the room where our two kids slept (it had it's own TV as well) which gave... More

Nice quiet stay, close to town, staff was very friendly and room was nice. Breakfast serving was a little different but had an overall great experience. There are 2 hotels together and they have 2 pools, one indoor and outdoor and you can use either, which was a nice option.

We stayed for 2 nights, since we arrived the owner was so friendly and he gaves us tips and what to do. The room was totally renewed (carpets, bathroom, paint) in our opinion should rated higher. For sure we will come back!!! Also we brought our small pet and the extra cost was ok.

This place is a budget friendly beautiful clean hotel. The owner of the property is very friendly and full of useful information. The bathroom had no dust, no mold, no damage and would pass the white glove check. The tiles in the bathroom looked new as did the sink and counter. The rooms come with a microwave and fridge and...

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
