Booked this hotel on Hotwire (not the one I wanted or thought I was going to get). Problem was we were driving from 8 hours away and we didn't want to be stuck without a hotel. The prices on hotel.com about 2 weeks out were over $200 per room. We wanted to pay in Canadian dollars, so did it this... More

This hotel is awful. Dirty and cheap there was mildew all over our room. They wanted to charge extra for everything. The pool is not in this hotel but the one next door. The continental breakfast is next door. At $70 a night I would expect it to at least be clean.

Three families made reservations in June so that we could meet here and enjoy the beauty of Mackinac Island. Upon our arrival, we were informed that all of "our rooms had been destroyed by teenage girls". After digging a little further, and speaking to the "owner" Benny, he admitted to over booking the hotel and since we had booked at... More

Do not waste your money on this hotel. The WiFi doesn't work past the lobby and the staff isn't concerned about anything other than talking to their boyfriends on the phone while you stand there and wait. The breakfast all comes from a can and is the filthiest mess you will ever witness - 50 plus people from 3 hotels... More

online photos make you think this is a well run, clean hotel. Don't be fooled. I travel a great deal, and this is awful qualify for the price. Pine sol cannot cover up the rustic scent of sweaty socks and ciagrettes. We were stunned to observe windows screwed closed in the breakfast room -- if there was a fire, nobody... More

The sign said "Grand Opening"! What a joke! This was the worst place we've ever stayed. The doors to the outside from the hallway were never locked or even closed securely. Nothing worked well & very overpriced!

The Bayside (formerly Hampton Inn) is a hotel which must be owned as a group of hotels, because the Bayside is literally connected via hallways to the Crown Choice Inn & Suites (formerly Comfort Inn). The hotel looks presentable at the front desk, however, upon entering the room, the carpet was filthy, and the room in great need of cosmetic... More

While the room was clean the rest of the stay was not so nice. AC unit leaked soaking clothes, bag I sat on the floor. Went to laundry room another guest had exact same thing happen to him. Front desk staff was not informed on hotel policies. When manager came to speak to us he acted rushed and kept trying... More

Reserved four rooms for our group for 3 nights. When we got to our rooms, one had a moldy/musty smell. At first they told us they could move us to the first floor, because they didn't have anything else on the second floor near our other 3 rooms. After explaining that we would need 2 rooms moved to keep our... More

Staff was nice but the breakfast was horrible. All unhealthy food. Extremely small styrofoam bowls for oatmeal which should be outlawed. Breakfast room was not airconditioned. Hallways were very noisy in the early morning and late at night. Not a comfortable place to stay.
