We arrived at around 1 and she said come back at 4. She was so rude and never told us about the breakfast buffet and the water parks we could go to. The location was wonderful and right next to the ferry. It's a shame the rooms are bit that clean. Our bathroom had a clump of black hair on... More

This hotel needs serious updating. We had a 2-bedroom suite, beach view, 2 couples. Turned out if had one bath, not two. room was dark, stuffy. Had only a very small table w/2 chairs(for 4 people). Lampshades were mis-matched. Bed, dresser table and chairs very banged up. Nice bath, though. Maid did a great job cleaning. Rest of hotel looked... More

Should probably give this one 1 star. Just not taken care of. Walls all chipped up, railings on the stairs were boards and nails. We used the stairs to get to our room and it looked horrible. Really dated common rooms. We faced the water and the beach area was never attended to, chairs upside down, just messy. Staff not... More

After reading the reviews, I was a little worried, but we were pleasantly surprised. We upgraded to a 1st floor one king bed and one queen bed (each having their own room with a door that locks and a jacuzzi bath tub and shower enclosed between the two rooms. There was only 4 rooms that had sliding doors that allowed... More

Hotel is stuffy and very smelly throughout. Rooms are worn and dated. Balcony was dirty. The edging on the corner of the wall was actually falling off. Facet to wash off feet from beach wasn't working. There are several doors to enter hotel from outside with nothing to secure access to building. Went to one of the indoor water parks... More

We have stayed at a few places around Mackinaw City. While the room was big and the a/c worked there were other issues. The bathroom door did not close properly. It was just my husband and our boys with me so it was not a huge issue. Still it was quite annoying. How hard is it to fix a bathroom... More

Hotel was clean. Location was good. Everything after that went downhill. A/C was broke in our double suite (2 queen beds in each room). Finally fixed a/c . Management was the worst I have ever encountered in my entire life (with quite a bit of travel experience with a large company before retirement). First manager became distraught with me, because...

Rooms are looking tired, worn, and outdated. Darker colors are not hiding the dirt anymore. Our bathroom fixtures were worn , and dated .The shower head was disgusting. Were asked us to re-use the towels to save energy...but there was no place to hang them. Staff was not friendly or helpful. Going someplace else next time .....

Location is superb, on the lake with Star Line ferry next door to the island. The place is very dated, circa 1999. An update is needed. Breakfast is lousy, just like other reviews stated. Difficult to understand employees' English, but most seemed friendly. Front desk process is very broken. Took us over 10 minutes to check in (no line). We... More
