The room was full of humidity. The bath tube was dirty. Poor sound insulation with terrible noise which makes my cousin and I hard to sleep at night. The free coffee from the breakfast tasted like water.

I am honestly in shock at how bad my stay was and that this place is still even open. The bathroom is so small you can barely fit in it, the chairs were broken, the air conditioning unit had broken knobs and was half falling off the wall, it smelled disgusting in the room, the "free wifi" was a joke,...

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

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.
