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

I have to say this is the dirtiest little hotel I have ever been in. First thing we did was open the windows and leave for a few hours to air out the place before we would even bring our luggage in. No way we were putting our luggage on the floor that looked like it had never been vacuumed.... More

We booked this room on a bid site. It would not have been my choice had I seen it first. I tried to keep an open mind as I could not get a refund. The staff was very friendly and as I had booked 2 rooms they moved us around so the rooms were next to each other. We were... More

I rated this motel as average because of the price compared to nearby hotels. The motel is older, however the staff are making a good effort of cleaning and welcoming guests. I knew what to expect based on other reviewers pics. When we checked in I have to say that the front desk person gave me the best mini introduction... More

When we booked our stay here, we did it through a blind bid process, so we didn't know it would be at this hotel. Once the booking bid was complete and I saw where we ended up and read the reviews I was really nervous. I tried cancelling the reservation but was told we were not able to do so.... More

We booked this motel in may. After arriving in the states we checked reviews and panicked. ...we decided to risk the stay and were pleased we did. Yes it is old and the furniture needs updating but the welcome was warm and genuine and all the guests we encountered were happy. A lake view room was worth the extra. Beautiful.... More

My husband and I stayed on Sat July 20th. We only stayed here because there wasn't a room available that Sat night on Mackinac Island where we stayed on Friday night. We checked into the Waterfront Inn around 4:30 pm. We were one of the lucky ones who room was ready. Some people in front of us was told there... More

We booked this on-line & should have read the reviews first. which mentioned bugs & filth. The first thing you see is the open laundry room with mountians piled everywhere & trash all over the place. We canceled when we saw the place as if it was as bad inside as out, there's no way we would've stayed there. It... More
