This is a nice place to stay while in Mackinaw. The location is right on the water and within walking distance of the city center area. Staff was professional and friendly and the rates were reasonable. Try to get a room on the water, as these are better.

Great breakfast (FYI - it's up a couple of flights of stairs, but worth it) and nice pool. The beds are not the most comfortable, but it's got a decent view of everything and within walking distance to everything also. Great value for what you get!

Nice hotel and very clean with its private beach. Great place for families with kids. Prefect location to walk anywhere. During holidays the fireworks are right in the front of the hotel so you can enjoy them sitting on your private balcony.

We stayed here during memorial weekend. It's a nice hotel for the area, best westerns aralways pretty average for hotels and this sticks to that ideal.

I've booked at this hotel several years in a row now during the zoo-de-mack bike ride. Lake front rooms are great and spacious with in room refridgerators. Indoor pool and hot tub are large and clean. Free breakfast is adequate with eggs, sausage, fresh fruit, biscuits and gravy and such. Overall a great place to stay and a good value.

This hotel is great locale to downtown and most of the shuttles that go to the Island. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Word of caution....bring your own hair dryer - the in room ones are from 1970 and take forever!!

We usually stay at a Hampton, but as there were none in the area we did some research on Trip Advisor and chose this one. The room was small but was on the lakefront. Being off season the price was very good. My husband noticed that there was dust on top of the cabinet that held the fridge. It looked... More
