We called this hotel before we booked the room on hotels.com to make sure the room would accommodate our family of 5 with a pack n play for our 16th month old. It did not accommodate us, and the room was filthy. There is something wrong when you have to get your own cleaning wipes out to clean table surfaces.... More

I traveled mid July 2015 for a family vacation to Mackinaw Island. We chose to stay in Mackinaw City as it was cheaper than staying on the island. I was very disappointed with the hotel we stayed at. WIFI: The wifi did not work whatsoever. I have Verizon and my phone could not even find the wifi server to connect... More

All about aveage. Room was adequately equipped,...wasnt looking for a bargain but all nicer hotels booked . Across from ferry lines is nice. Breakfast is curiosly on the 3rd floor in what looks like a ballroom...hot and has guests from adjoining hotel join in...GOOFY. We went down the street...add $25 to our room savings. not again.

My husband and I stayed on June 30, 2015, for 1 night. Here are my observations.. 1. Upon pulling back the bedding, to go to bed, we noticed that we had blood stained sheets. When this was brought to the front desk receptionist, I was told that "house keeping had left for the night" and was given a new set... More

Hotwire offered this place anonymously to me and I bit for the $82 rate that included indoor pool, free wifi, free breakfast, and free parking as my parameters. I was a little anxious after reading the reviews here, but it wasn't nearly as bad as others have shared. Service could be friendly, but sometimes seemed a bit "put out" when... More

One of the Least pricey and decent hotels in the area in July. Hotels run very pricey in July, even for rundown ones. The hotel was overpriced for its low star ranking because they can since its busy season. Not worth more than $80 a night according to cleanliness, service. In room: -Coffee maker and fridge -Beds weren't anything special... More

The nice part of the hotel is you are right across from the Ferry. The service and cleanliness are horrible. The pillows and the sheets smell like mildew. The towels are all stained with brown spots and the wash cloths are mixed with the dish cloths, so when you go to wash your face you smell the stall food. The... More

I read the reviews on here before arriving, so I wasn't expecting the Marriott Marquis, however many of the reviews called it "clean and adequate". I would not go quite that high in praise here. Let me start with the best attribute, the front desk was staffed by friendly ladies. Now the rest, this place is not clean. It's not... More

The only thing this hotel had going for it was the location, right across the street from one of the ferry lines to the island. Other than that, everything else was barely adequate at best. Upon entering the hotel the first thing we noticed was a lobby area in need of attention. Old furniture in the lobby and a conference... More

The location of the hotel is good. You can take the ferry to Mackinac island from right across the hotel. All the restaurants are close by. That's the only thing I liked about this hotel. The room was all right. The staff at the reception was friendly.
