It doesn't even deserve one star. We asked for a 2 bedroom cabin for 2 couples. When we got to our "cabin" it was a single bedroom with 2 beds and a pull out couch and filthy. I went back to the office and requested a 2 bedroom cabin as we paid for and was given keys to another "cabin"... More

Unfortunately, I booked this place in last minute rush and didn't do my homework to check guests reviews (I see that most of reviews posted on TripAdvisor are very negative). The hotel looks nothing like the photos. Hair all over the shower wall, the curtains were falling off the rod, stained chairs. Absolutely disgusting horrible outdated cheap motel. It's false... More

The rate that I booked from the Mackinaw City Chamber of Commerce's website was different from the confirmation that I received in my email; there was a $20 difference. I called Mackinaw City Chamber of Commerce and Waterfront Inn but they cannot do anything about it since it fell within the 72-hour cancellation policy. What's worse is how unprofessional the...

My family and I arrived on June 25th, a stay planned until June 29th. We left a day early. The room was dirty, dust, cobwebs, dead bugs in every corner. The entrance way to the room was filled with dead bugs, while you should expect a little bit of this in these types of rooms since your on the lake/beach... More

I recently booked two rooms here through Expedia and accidently cancelled one of the rooms. When I called Expedia I was told not only would I be charged 58 dollars for the cancelled reservation, but it would cost 450 a night to re book. When my son arrived in Mackinaw City to check in, imagine his surprise when he discovered... More

We stayed at this Waterfront Hotel while doing a color tour during a beautiful Michigan weekend. We stayed two nights, and there were many people there. The breakfast, which was at an adjacent hotel, was very good. It was quite crowded. I would rate this a 4 or 5 for a one-star hotel because that's what it is unless one... More
