We had reservations at Super 8...when we arrived we were told the room was not avail. No apologies..just a 'we'll call around for you'. Fairview Inn had a room like the one we reserved at Super 8 but with a lakeview.. so we took off for Fairview Inn.. walked in and it smelled. It is older, but just because it... More

This hotel needs to be closed down asap. It is fifthy and gross. MY balcony was covered in bird poop and chairs cracked. The towels in room dirty. The carpet going up the stairs has huge holes which caused my young son to trip and fall. Missing light bulbs in bathroom. I have called several times to speak with owner... More

I was worried because of the older reviews, but was supprised at every moment from check in. Hotel must now be owned by someone else. No evidence of mold or unkempt, facility does show age in some areas (I remember staying here as a kid). Room appeared to be recently remodeled, had mini fridge and lake Huron view (stay was... More

We were sent to this dump of a hotel after Bridge Vista gave our room to a higher paying customer. We would not stay here, we took one look at the room and the quality of the hotel was so poor, we turned right around and left. But, they had our credit card and they proceeded to charge it. Later...

I had made a 3-night reservation at the Bridge Vista Beach Hotel, but upon checking in was told that our room was not available, and we were sent to the Fairview. I had passed on the Fairview because it had such poor reviews, but we were stuck. Despite the fact that the Fairview knew we were coming, and the fact... More

I do not understand all the bad reviews here, but good ones on the chamber of commerce's site. I booked this place for a week. A lakefront room for $69. I was leary because of the bad reviews. Once I was here, I was surprised! It is clean, yes older, but that is what you get in Mackinaw. We went... More

Absolutely atrocious!! We went here for our honeymoon and we ended up just driving home rather than spending the night there. First, we upgraded our room on the promise that we'd have a view of the bridge. How cool would a nighttime view of the bridge be?!!? Well, the building next door was perfectly positioned so that only maybe 5... More

We stayed here last minute and had a double queen, courtyard view room. It was OLD, peeling paint and so very outdated. It smelled clean, but wasn't that clean. The beds sucked! We payed a total of $152.00 for one night. Yes this included 5 waterpark passes, (very small water parks), and breakfast for 5 as well. The breakfast was... More

A Sat-Sun night stay cost us 235. Not a bad rate, until we stepped in the room. Decent size, awful smell. The next morning we were itching. BEDBUGS!!!! we have never seen one before, so we googled an image, and sure enough, we tested positive. Beds were littered with them. Probably the grossest thing ive ever encountered in a hotel....
