Front Desk Service: Rude It's not worth it. Tons of other, nicer places to stay in Mackinaw. I wish we had read the other reviews before we stayed here. My husband travels a lot, and he said he has never experienced anything like it. The rooms are large, but the beach area is not kept that nicely.

The rooms are clean and huge (the bathroom alone is the size of some hotel rooms I've stayed at in Europe). The staff was friendly. The price was good. We had a wonderful view. Lots of families with smaller children were staying here, yet the hotel was quiet at night.

We stayed overnite at this Hotel. It was nice, clean, and spacious. A very large room, updated, with a good bed. We had a beautiful view of the beach and bridge. It was very close to the Mackinac Island ferries. I would certainly stay here again.

Fist of all the hotel is clean,and has a nice view of the lake and bridge. That's about all I can say good about the place. It was way overpriced there are much nicer hotels as well in that same area and I'm sure with better owners We were taking the shuttle over to the island so the lady at... More

I thought it was really nice when my family and I were having fun in Mackinaw in the Fall of 2014. There wasn't any real concerns or any! A nice little place. Right by the water that made the experience even better, no one was there in the Fall so it was a pleasurable experience!

I recently stayed at this property for 4 nights beginning May 31, 2015. I stayed here last year as well. I am very impressed with how John, Sharon, and Mahalia relate so positively to their guests. They always have a smile and a kind word for all of their guests. They also give fantastic recommendations for dinner, whether it be... More

My family and i stayed at the Beach and Bay during - Troop Mackinaw weekend and we were pleasantly surprised by our accommodations. The rooms were a nice size. I loved waking up in the morning and seeing the open water and having a view of Big MAc Bridge. They had an awesome breakfast - that included an option to... More

After being bumped from another hotel that over booked this hotel was just what we needed. The manager was very understanding, friendly and helped us with whatever we needed. The room was very comfortable for our family of five with everyone getting their own bed to sleep. Loved listening to the waves off the lake as we drifted off to... More

Great place to stay. We were there with our Brownie Troop. We had two beds and a couch that pulled out so the girls could hang out with lots of room. We had a beautiful view of the lake right on the beach. Bon Fire was a hit with everyone. Hotel manager Jon was on top of everything and always... More
