Would never go back here again..very rude! Room had no heat (was told to turn on the base board heat that did not exist) and had to wait for a space heater. They could only find one extra blanket. Showers were nice and hot but no pressure and leaked on the floor only had 2 bath towels, one hand towel... More

After reading the horrible reviews for Cabins of Mackinaw, I was extremely worried about my stay. We stayed in a Chalet style cabin in the front row. Inside the cabin was very nice - 2 beds, pull out couch, mini fridge, & giant spa tub. We called several times ahead of time trying to get more information since their website... More

If you are in Mackinaw City, these cabins look catchy and interesting for they're unique and rare to see in a city. I stayed here for a night and i enjoyed their limited amenities. It is across Star Line ferry. These cabins are good for those people who are on a budget and just need a place to stay for... More

This is an EconoLodge. There's nothing wrong with that, but they seem to go out of their way not to be listed as such on travel websites, so let me be unequivocal: The Cabins of Mackinaw are an EconoLodge. If you're an EconoLodge loyalist, you've found your match; if you avoid EconoLodge, there's that. This EconoLodge shares an "indoor water... More

These little cabins were perfect for our night in Mackinaw City. The Star Line ferry was right across the street, and the location is close to great restaurants and shops. We didn't need to use the car while we were there. The cabin itself was very clean and nicely equipped, and one of the nicest places we stayed on a... More

I crawled into bed only to find several hairs dirt and other small pieces of yuk. Why? Seems pretty basic.... change the sheets! Lady at the desk belittled me because she couldn't understand what I was saying... and they tried charging for Internet when it says everywhere that it's free. I would have complained if I thought it would have... More

#1 Booked the cabin for 4 nights 3 months in advance, called 6 weeks before arrival to add one more day and they had no record of our reservation. Thought we got it straightened out and it was still messed up on arrival! A Gift basket was brought by the day of our arrival and they gave it to us... More

The resort does not have a sign at the entrance and can easily be missed (we drove past it four times before finding it). Front desk support consisted of one woman trying to do the work of three or four. She was not customer friendly at all. She had trouble even finding our reservation as the phones kept ringing. Rooms... More

I enjoyed having our own personal "cabin" and not having any shared walls. It was a small cozy place and that was nice. However the shower was in poor condition and it did not look like it had been cleaned well (water stains and soap scum on walls and fixtures). Also it was in need of repair. They also did... More

After a 15 hour drive, found out cabin with loft was given to someone else. Family was put in a chalet which was too small and infested with ants. The manager said there was no ant problem. Dirty and poorly managed. Wait for new management before booking. The attitude of the manager was,"too bad so sad", for patrons of cabins.... More
