We thought we were doing a day stay on the island but last minute decided to spend the night and take the ferry over the following morning. This hotel was decent until we got to our room and oh the view -- beautiful. That's what I call "Pure Michigan".

The view from our room was fantastic, we watched the sun rise over the water, wow. We could see the ferries, the island and the beauty of the lake from our balcony. The suite was spacious and having a frig was very convenient. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast... More

We found this hotel to be lovely. Our room was first floor--right on the beach. We did nothing but sleep there but it was lovely to look out! Packing lot was fine, room was very spacious--would have been great if we'd had the kids along. Breakfast was nice--staff was helpful. Price was great!

Just got back from a very nice stay at the Mackinaw Beach and Bay. I booked this resort because they offer separate sleeping spaces, which is a huge plus when you have a family member that is a restless sleeper (like me!). I had booked the standard view, and was very happy to be upgraded to a lake view, that... More

We had originally planned to stay in this hotel one night but quickly decided to stay for three as the location was perfect for our travel plans, the room was great for our family, and the staff (especially Heather) was friendly and helpful as we planned the rest of our trip. It was a wonderful setting!

For a quick over might stay before we go to the island we usually stay here. Better than a the few others we have tried. Can't be the price. This time we saved $20 by getting the courtyard room. Which means it's in a high traffic area. All rooms have a water view. In my opinion it was worth saving... More

This fairly new hotel replaced a quaint group of cabin structures that I stayed at many times over the past 40 years, so I was curious as to whether progress was an upgrade. Gone were the cabins and outdoor shuffleboard and grassy picnic areas by the lakeshore. The beach is now not very inviting, being fairly dirty. I came away... More

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
