Terrible service! Front desk has NO personality! Asked for one type of room got another! Booked at one price and was charged a higher price at check in when asked why "they are like the airlines it goes by occupancy" would NOT change the price. The first impression of the room on the porch was one old plastic round table... More

Advertised free HBO service...never had HBO though called front desk several times. Breakfast area was beyond disgusting!!! There was NO COFFEE!!Every table was dirty, garbage bins so overfilled that trash was left on counters. Can't even describe how unappealing the mostly empty hot food looked.... More

We had a confirmed reservation which had been made on the Mackinaw City Commerce of Tourism website. Upon our arrival, we were told that our cabin had been given to someone else who arrived earlier (they overbooked). The manager rudely offered us a more expensive cabin at a higher cost or he would find us a room at another hotel... More

The cabins are quant. We stayed in one of the smaller cabins. The location couldn't be better for access to the ferry, shopping, etc. But the breakfast that's offered was subpar. There isn't a microwave in the cabin but there is a small fridge. No iron either. The air conditioner was really insufficient to keep the cabin cooled off. The... More

Upon our arrival, we found that the room we had booked had been booked right out from under us with absolutely no warning. The manager David worked with us to get us back into a cabin like the one we had rented and discounted our rate to the style we were in for the night. Breakfast was, according to one... More

Booked Cabin in November 2014 for our July 3-4 of 2015 and when we arrived we had no reservation. Sister-in-law called two days in advance to make sure everything was a go and they said sure is we have you all booked and waiting on you. That was a joke then we were put in a Chalet when we booked... More

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
