I reserved two nights beginning July 10, but ended staying only one night. Arrived with my wife and two kids just for a short two day stay. I was not impressed with this hotel at all, very poor management and very understaffed. The beach is about ten feet wide and dirty, the staff never attempted to clean any of the... More

We stayed at the Hamilton Inn Select over the 4th of July weekend (2011) and we enjoyed it. Our arrival was somewhat chaotic. I agree with other reviewers who spoke of overhearing inappropriate front-desk issues (my check-in person was on the phone arguing with the cleaning staff while taking my credit card, creating my keys, etc.) but beyond that the...

My boyfriend and I visited Mackinac Island, but I wasn't very impressed with the hotels across the water. I chose this hotel because of the easy access to the beautiful sandy beach (it was literally right off the balcony). The views were fantastic and the city is very sweet. Some of the other reviews on this place said that the... More

Average hotel needing management attention. Lax front desk staff seemed to have problems with basic checking in procedure. Housekeeping staff spent most of their time talking on cell phones or each other loudly. At one point, several were simly sitting in the lobby. Rooms were basically clean, but drab and outdated. For $200 a night, this hotel is way overpriced.

Nothing fabulous but clean and no problems. Some staff had a bad attitude but others were great! "Waterparks" were a major let down.

Just returned from 3 night stay... horrible experience. I believe in detailed ratings to provide you with the most info. to make a decision so here it goes... #1- We booked this hotel via telephone months ago. We simply called just to get rates but after the hotel operator lowered the rates 3x after we tried hanging up we decided... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Hamilton Inn for a mini vacation a couple weeks ago. We arrived before noon, so the room we booked wasn't ready. But they offered us an upgrade to the lakefront suite. It was worth it! The room was fabulous and the view was gorgeous. We found the staff to be very friendly and... More

We had a lakefront room and the view was beautiful. They upgraded our room to a larger one for only $10 more. Two queen beds plus a sofa bed. We asked the front... More

great room and excellent stay BUT the owner apparently owns all of the hotels on the strip, and some of the restaurants. They tried to force us into a room at greater expense based upon the fact that children were at the hotel. also, they only recommend restaurants that the hotel owns. WATCH OUT! The room itself was great and... More

They still Charged my account for the stay. I was within the time of canceling. When i called the staff i spoke to was rude and very... More
