Terri is always so pleasant and helpful at breakfast time. She goes out of her way to answer your concern even if it isn't breakfast related. And we just love Darrel. He is never very far away if you need help with a facilities issue. He has such an outgoing personality

We enjoyed everything about the Mackinaw Beach & Bay. The suite was extremely comfortable, and it was great to have a kitchenette to prepare food. We liked having a couch to relax on, and there was good lighting in both rooms. And, of course, having a balcony with a beach and bay view was a lot of fun. The breakfast... More

This is our second time here and were very happy - again! Great location on the water and minute from downtown Mackinaw. The rooms were VERY spacious with two separate bedrooms separated by a bathroom and small kitchenette. There was also a table and couch in the first portion of the bedroom. Rooms were exceptionally clean and beds very comfortable.... More

On our way to Mackinac Island, so we needed to stop for the night at and found this place on Trip Advisor. Very clean. It gets a 4 star rating by the wife, which is very good because she is critical when it comes to where she stays. Very clean corners, no dirt in the cracks or around the pipes,... More

Extremely clean hotel, and every room has a view of the lake. Easily accessible from all attractions in Mackinaw City. However, I am giving 4 stars for the quality of the property and the cleaning. The staff could use some work as they are unapproachable and not very interested in what guests have to say. Although polite, they clearly would... More

We stayed here for two nights while on a coach tour with Country Travelers Discovery, taking a day trip on the ferry to Mackinaw Island. The rooms were excellent with a king bed and a queen bed, separated by a divider. The queen bed section also had a couch. I suspect the room could have slept four or five family... More

Great rooms. Two large sleeping areas. Clean. Nice view of the bridge. Beach could use a little clean up! Very nice large pool and hot tub. Easy access to the boat docks to Mackinac Island. Large breakfast. Little kitchenettes and sofa sleeper made it convenient! Great value! Weekday prices are much better than the weekend! I would recommend this property!

We checked in on a Thursday night after 11 PM and 5 hours of travel only to go into a room that was in dire need of remodeling, a door to a balcony that my weight lifting husband could not open, lights that were not working and the privacy lock on our room door was busted. That following morning we... More

Upon arrival the front desk people were not very welcoming. They made us feel like we were an inconvenience. The suite was clean but in desperate need of updating. The breakfast was uneatable, we ended up going out for a decent cup of coffee. Beach? What Beach, it is a little patch of sand that is not clean and offers... More
