This was a nice hotel and reasonably priced for this tourist city. Great view of the east and sunrise from every room. There is a balcony however due to the sea gulls being everywhere and yelling at 5:30 every morning we did not sleep that great. We did not walk on the beach because of the poop and feathers. Hotel...

This is your standard two star hotel. While I have no complaints, I am stumped by the rave reviews. We enjoyed the great view and a large room, but I believe you could find this experience at any of the other dozens of hotels along the strip. Service, as mentioned by others, was a bit gruff, but warmed up when... More

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend family trip to Mackinaw. Note that booking through the Mackinaw City Chamber of Commerce will land you a better deal than online sites. The room itself was great. We had a two-bed suite, with the two rooms separated by the bathroom. The room was very clean and in good shape. We had... More

Unfortunately, if we and a lot of other people recommend the Mackinaw Beach and Bay ,maybe it won't have openings when we want to go back......But we were so pleased with this place and we want to thank the staff for their hard work and kindness, so we will let others know about it :). We had a very clean... More

This July, we stayed for 1 week at this resort. This is the fourth straight year we have stayed at this hotel (it opened around 2010). My family has made Mackinaw City a family trip for more than 35 years. I have stayed at many hotels and campgrounds in the area. Last year, there was new ownership. The rooms are... More

The hotel is in a nice location close to the ferry and town. It was clean and the suite room was very large and comfortable. Fridge and microwave in room were great. This made travel with teenagers much nicer. The breakfast was very good with waffles, fruit, eggs and a nice variety. The building is very odd and closed in...no... More

We arrived in Mackinaw City on a Thursday evening and had reservations for the King and Queen room. While the room was compact, it was adequate for my wife and I and our 4 children-3 of whom are adults. My son did complain about the queen sofa bed, but the others were very comfortable and the rooms were very quiet.... More

We had a room(s) with a King and queen. It was actually two separate rooms separated by the bathroom. It was very nice, roomy, and clean. The balcony provided a great view of the bridge and Mackinac island. The beach is not good. Some sand back from the water and lots of seagulls and their droppings. The staff was very... More

I understand what people are saying about the staff. They can seem rude but if you are nice and don't give them attitude they won't give it back. I saw and heard so many people being rude to them. If I had to listen to that all the time I would be crabby too! We were in the extra large... More

Pros: Fantastic room layout for families (our son was happy to have his own room and TV); quiet location away from the busy downtown area; close to 2 of the 3 ferries; helpful staff; clean rooms and spacious bathroom Cons: no division/partition between the two bedrooms (a curtain or door would have been nice); breakfast was just okay - some...
