This hotel was ok but the staff ruined the experience and we will never stay here again. The front desk receptionist was rude and seemed bothered by helping guests. We discussed check out policies while checking in and were told that early check out was ok, and when we had to check out earlier than planned, the same clerk told... More

We were planning to visit Mackinac Island and stay for a couple of days. Used Hotwire to book a room under their secret hot rate hotel. Got this one in their deal. Since the hotel will be revealed only after you lock in the payment, you cannot change anything. I was really upset about this one after reading a lot... More

We booked this room due to location next to Star Line Ferry and rate was reasonable. The room was not very clean. Stains on wall, cob webs in corners. Bedding seemed clean and room smelled fine. Breakfast was horrible. It is shared with the suites next door. We walked in about 10 minutes to 10AM and the room looked like... More

I meant to post this a few months ago when I was staying but due to some internet issues I was unable to post it at the time. I wrote this review at 5AM... First of all this hotel inside does not look anything like the pictures online showing newly redone rooms. This place is old, think circa 1995 with... More

I recently spent 4 nights at The Bayside Hotel in Mackinaw City and it was the longest 4 nights of my life. I have traveled all over the world and this by far was the worst place I have ever encountered. Diamond Tours should be ashamed of themselves for putting people up in this dump! Because of this experience I... More

$289.00 for a horrible stay! Cob webs all over the hotel, dirty laundry in the hall ways, very bad service, and a rotten breakfast. The whole place smelled of mold and mildew. Their website makes it look great, BEWARE!!! When we complained, the lady at the desk claimed "it's not my place!" and refused to give me the owner's name... More

The hotel sign said Grand opening. Seemed like there were some details that needed tending to prior to that were left undone. There was a different hotel name on the phone and no information sheet. The beds were very firm. Breakfast is shared with the comfort inn next door and so was pandemonium. We did not have time to use... More

We booked Bayside Hotel for an impromptu weekend stay with my family and grandsons. This was apparently a hotel that was once a nationally-recognized property, but fell into disrepair, and lost its franchise. Public areas were dirty...hallways, elevators, dining areas, etc. Ice machines were all nonfunctional on all floors. Our room deadbolt lock did not lock. Breakfast service was awful...poor... More

We booked this hotel almost a month in advance. Not recognizing many of the hotel chains in Mackinaw City we saw where this one boost being new. This hotel is scary, not because the room was dirty (it was) or there was no soap or shampoo. It was the mold and smell from the indoor pool along with the dehumidifier... More
