We booked for two nights assuming a good room with two beds. We were given a small room with a queen bed. We request to move to bigger room or better bedding. That is what you got! We were asked to pay almost double to upgrade! We tried to make a lemonade from this lemon but the next morning was... More

Booked this place through travelocity on the fly. We will think that through a little more next time. Bridge view charge was $300.Not worth it. The beds are rock hard and walls paper thin. Shower was nice,the rooms were nice. Clean fresh smell. Carpets really need replaced. If this was a hotel 8 or red roof for $189 (taking into... More

My wife and I stayed at the Parkside Inn on August 5th. The rooms were nice and the staff very nice. The best thing about this motel is its location, it's just minutes away from the beautiful Mackinaw bridge and the straits of Mackinaw. It's also close to downtown Mackinaw and the restaurants. We have stayed in many Mackinaw hotels... More

Attractive hotel in an excellent location next to the Mackinac Bridge, Colonial Michilimackinac, and the Old Mackinac Lighthouse - and just blocks from the main shopping strip. My wife took a walk in the park along the lake every morning. (Had to keep her mouth closed, though, because of all the bugs!) We had a large room with three beds,... More

We've stayed here many times over the years. We always liked staying in a room facing the bridge. The room was clean but it's time for new mattresses. I wouldn't be surprised if these were the same ones we slept on 30 years ago. No kidding, they were worn out. Our TV and wifi went out too. Another complaint has... More

This place will charge you extra if you are paying by credit card. I booked online and nothing on their website stated this. They will tell you upon arrival. If I knew this was their policy, I would've brought cash. Yes, the room we stayed in was clean. Not happy with the breakfast. Hard boiled eggs, oat meals, bread and... More

Another great stay at the Parkside Inn! Everything was great! We stay in the large room with three beds and lots of room space too! The room was clean, the owners and staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast was pretty good too! The location is awesome, to see the bridge at breakfast and the park across the street is... More

I had a good experience with this hotel. The manager was friendly, and the free breakfast seemed decent, though I don't eat the free hotel breakfasts (too many carbs!). It looked good and the other guests seemed to enjoy it. The hotel is right next to the Mackinac Bridge and fairly close to downtown. The hotel is right across the... More

We hadn't stayed here for years. However, it is still the same, everyone is friendly, the breakfast is good and the rooms are wonderful. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would return again. We had a room with a view of the lake and park with a private balcony, definitely worth the price.

Stayed at this hotel for two days and it was not worth it. The floor was dirty when we walked it and the person that run this hotel had to clean the floor. We paid extra for the view and it was not worth it. The office was only open for a limited time and I was told it was... More
