To start it off the tube was cracked by the drain, no shower curtain, no wash cloths, no towels. no channel line up guide, to top it off the TV was so old it was a tube style, mold around on the seal on the mini-fridge plus it froze or drinks. not even close to the water, no coffee pot... More

I came with a group of 4 for a weekend and we were VERY pleased. Mahalia and the staff were very polite, professional, friendly, and helpful! The room we had was clean and a perfect size for us with nice beds, drawers for clothes, a mini-fridge, a TV (although we barely used it), a nice bathroom with the sink and... More

What a great experience! While the hotel is older and could use some serious updating, the experience was amazing! The view was gorgeous! Mahalia has amazing customer service skills and I enjoyed talking with her! She's definitely a keeper!

Scouting out hotels in the Mackinac Island area - every other hotel was atleast $30 more per night. My rating for this hotel is not based on luxurious accomodations but rather the value of a dollar you receive at this hotel. 1. Near City Center CHECK 2. Mini fridge - CHECK 3. Heated pool AND hot tub - CHECK 4.... More

My girlfriend and I needed a place to stay overnight with a pet, this place is accomodating to dogs. This is on the lake so there may be lots of bugs! Dated building but good price. Mahalia at the front desk was very friendly and helpful!

Me and my boyfriend and my dog stayed here for a night, one of the only places that would allow him in! The rooms were in good condition, besides the bugs that would come in when we opened the doors. But we got a very nice price for the room we stayed in overlooking the lake. Mahalia was very helpful... More

First of all, I would like to talk about the highlight of our stay. We got room 602, it's facing east right beside the beach. So the view is very good throughout the day. In the morning, we wake up around 5 and see the sunrise right out of the window. So instead of going back to bed, we enjoyed... More

This place is okay for a couple days if you don't need anything but a bed and a shower. Rooms are clean, but very run down. The beach is pretty gross due to mud and geese droppings. The pool was really nice and we enjoyed spending evenings there. Breakfast was good enough to get your day started.

I made a reservation at this hotel a few weeks before my trip but canceled it the same day as I found a better place to stay. They charged my credit card for a no-show. When I disputed it with my credit card company they got a copy of my reservation and the hotel staff hadn't even entered my name... More
