This is our second stay in the older chalets. We enjoy staying here because the little cabin has separate bedrooms and a living room. Plus, we have access to the pool/hot tub and breakfast buffet at the more expensive hotel next door. If you expect a newer hotel with wonderful service, you will be disappointed. If you are okay with... More

The bathroom was moldy. I booked a two room cabin and got a one room, old décor, broken patio chairs, dank and musty. The bathroom floor was sinking. I thought my grandchildren would enjoy the cabin but they are nothing like the pictures. I was lucky enough to cancel the second night and book into a beautiful hotel on the... More

We stayed here for a night on our way up to the U.P. and also to tour mackinaw Island. These cabins were great. Like your own little private cabin but all the amenities of a hotel. Looking forward to staying there again.

Be very skeptical when you book the internet special. Whatever you do, DO NOT stay in cabin 331…no hot water, no wifi, and ants in the bathroom. We brought these issues to the attention of the front desk. No resolution. Upon check-out, we expressed our unhappiness and were told that we should have brought the issues to their attention so...

I went to Mackinaw City and was planning to stay for 4 nights. I ended up staying for 3 nights, before I could not take it anymore. Here are all of the problems that occurred at the hotel: 1. Were told we would be staying in one of the newer cabins, and were placed in an old one 2. The... More

My husband and I spent two nights in the Cabins of Mackinaw. We stayed in a chalet and it was perfect for us. We caught the off season rate and were thrilled with the value of the room, plus the hot breakfast served next door. The chalet was built in 2013 and was decorated in knotty pine furniture and had...

So my new husband I decided to honeymoon in Mackinaw for the week. When we saw pictures of these beautiful cabins we thought it would be cool the stay. What we found out was that we were actually staying I a shed like building. The inside was nice, the mattress was hard and did not fit properly against the wall,... More

We stayed with our children on a recent trip to Mackinaw and this was one of our vacation highlights! It had a rustic cabin feel and plenty of room for our 3 grandchildren and 4 adults! The staff was very helpful and everything was great! Looking forward to our next visit! Just perfect!

With all the bad reviews I read on here I was a bit nervous to stay at the cabins but with the discounted price after Labor Day I took the chance. I was very impressed. The cabins were clean and very cute inside. Service was excellent although I feel they overwork their employees. I loved the waterparks and the breakfast... More

DANGER WILL ROBINSON! I had the bait and switch pulled on me. And I had to do the job of the housekeeping people. 1) Found used towel in shower when we arrived. No regular coffee either. 2) Came back to room and found no extra towels. Had requested an alarm clock, but none brought. Was told by the front desk... More
