My boyfriend and I made last minute reservations here. We normally stay at wilderness state park or the holiday inn express. But the rates here were just unbeatable! We had never stayed in a suite before and it was for our anniversary. The staff was wonderful. The gentleman working the desk when we showed up was soo nice! The room... More

Had read some of the previous reviews. Don't know if the person complaining about the cat-pee smell in their room was in an older part or what but our room was very clean with no smells. Staff was very nice, breakfast was pretty good......nothing extra special. Very nice stay especially since it was the best price! Would stay there again.

On the day of our reservation we were called at 8pm by a lady to ask how long before we would be there, because if it was too late they would be closed! Who wants to be rushed on their vacation?! When we arrived to our jacuzzi room, the carpet felt wet on my feet and it sounded like there... More

We arrived to be told that the ABVI was full and we were going to have to stay down the St. at the Thunderbird...!! The front desk employee was very apologetic and gave us tickets to the ferry to Mackinaw Island! She was very helpful and easy to talk to! The Thunderbird was a bit disappointing as well. The hot...

This clean, quiet motel is convenient to the Mackinac Straights Bridge and the ferries to Mackinac Island. Good breakfast comes with the room, Short drive to several restaurants in Mackinaw City. Convenient to Interstate 75.

Got a Jacuzzi room just for a night as we were just passing through to go to the UP. By the time we got there (9:45), we were ready to crawl into bed but used the jacuzzi which was pretty nice surprisingly. The room it's self reminded me of a room out of the 70's with the mirrors everywhere and... More

Room was horrible - Smelled like a cat pee'd in there - Not the room we reserved - The front desk help we very unprofessional and unpleasant. The only good thing on this place was that we were able to get our money back!!!

We spent five nights here on our family vacation. The staff is friendly. The rooms are quite large. If you're willing to give up the couch you can get three queen size beds which worked well for our family. The pool is quite large. We had one day where it seemed like our room cleaning was interrupted and things we... More

Very dated, bed is old and hard, the room smells like urine. The only redeeming feature is we could bring our small dog. Very close to downtown and ferry service as well as easy highway access. People were nice.
