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. There are some wonderful things such as it is clean, slightly updated. The Internet was slower, but still free and still worked - the password is Internet. They have a private beach, but they...

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

My husband & I stayed here 1 night before taking the ferry over to Macinac Island. We had a lakeview room on the 2nd floor, and the view was beautiful. My 2 complaints are the breakfast buffet and the antiquated hairdryer in the room. Buffet was indeed 25-foot long, but food choices were sparse and low quality. Eggs, gloppy sausage... More

I stayed here for one night before spending the day on Mackinac Island. The location is great, near lots of restaurants and the little village. Close to Sheplers and another ferry service - 5 mins walk max. You can leave your car too to avoid ferry parking fees. The room was clean and spacious, however I was very surprised how... More

This hotel was the BEST hotel we stayed at while visiting Mackinaw City for a week. It had very clean rooms, a new looking medium sized pool and jaccuzi area, and direct beachfront access. Everything in our room looked new and current, and our first floor room had a walk out balcony to the beach with a beautiful view we... More
