We had our wedding reception here on October 4, 2014. John (the general manager) and his staff were friendly, helpful and truly made us and all of our guests feel welcome. Our guests stayed the weekend and our reception and rooms were better than we could have expected. The staff went out of their way to make our special day... More

Our regular spot for our anniversary (in Traverse City)was sold out, so I left it up to my husband to find an alternative. My husband surprised me by booking this very nice hotel in Mackinaw City. It's in a good location,very clean, nicely decorated, and right on the water! A very pleasant and helpful young Jamaican girl helped us with... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel, and we're mortified and disgusted by the rude and vulgar demeanor of the general manager. We spent the day on the island, and returned back to the hotel at 9:00 p.m. We unpacked, settled in, and got our boys in their pajamas. As I pulled back their covers, I discovers that the... More

Large clean quiet rooms at a great price! Breakfast is average, Service is fantastic! Beach could be better but was to cold to use this time of year. Small hot tub but nice pool! Nice patio with chars and table.

I recently stayed here for my brother-in-law's wedding reception. The hotel itself was nice enough but I have never encounterd such an arrogant front desk staff. It was astonishing to see how someone in the so called hospitality business could be so curt and impertinent! My family and I will be sure to never stay there again

The room was very spacious with an extra area if you had children with out. They would have their own TV and bed. The view was fabulous overlooking the lake and bridge. We did have an issue with the smoke alarm at 4:30 am. When we tried to call the front desk several times there was no answer. So we... More

Significantly upgraded our room from what we had reserved. Heather at front desk was wonderful. Rooms clean, comfortable , and well maintained. Housekeeping did a nice job. All in room equipment, appliances, linens and supplies well stocked and maintained. Pricing was excellant. Breakfast not much to get excited about, but we're much more concerned about the room and furnishings than... More

It's the little things that add up to make an experience not so great. I can list multiple little things that made us not want to stay here again. A few things: burnt out light in bathroom, window open when we went in and nats everywhere, having a sign saying free salt scrub sample but no sample (just get rid... More

Beds are a little firm, but rooms were spacious. Breakfast was included, but not with it. No fresh fruit or yogurt. Pool was okay, but eyes burned from chlorine. Nice view. Good location not too far from shops, but away from mass crowds. Hotel has a reception room that you walk past to & from the pool.

While amidst a family emergency, I made a reservation at the Mackninaw Beach and Bay through a travel website. Two days before we were supposed to arrive, my husband realized I'd booked the wrong date, and it was already past the free cancellation period. I phoned the travel site hoping for mercy and was told they couldn't do anything for... More
