Room was clean and all amenities functioned perfectly. Very attentive staff and night was very quiet. Breakfast was hot and excellent. It included scrambled eggs and sausage, waffles, English muffin, toast, yogurt, coffee, orange and apple juice, apples, cereal and more. Serving room small but clean. Outside area available also, but weather limited usage of that. Attendant serving the meal... More

Drove in to Mackinaw City at 9:00 a.m. and found several "vacancy" signs. This was the only one that honored it. Great room. Easy access and not a bad breakfast. Easy access to the beachfront. I will return.

As frequent visitors of Comfort Brand Hotels, this is the worst hotel of any brand at which we have ever stayed. I gave the manager a couple weeks to respond, and because I haven't heard back. I am sharing our displeasure. First, we were given 3 phone calls to return confirming our arrival time to the hotel. We have never... More

Great location, close to the ferry docks, lots of restaurants within walking distance and the best part is that it's located right on the water. The views are beautiful. In spite of those things, I'm not sure the amenities, physical condition of the building and customer service received is worth the $209.00 rate (plus tax and fees). I understand you... More

Great location. Lots to see and do within walking distance. Older hotel, needs some TLC inside and out. We had dinner across the street at the Lighthouse Restaurant, (not impressed). Lot of ice cream shops nearby. We were able to walk to the ferry that takes you over to Mackinaw Island.A real tourist town. A lot of souvenir shops close... More

Great location - right on Lake Huron and within walking distance of many shops, restaurants and ferries. However, the hotel needs some updating inside and out. The space we had was a good size, 3 bedrooms, one bath, living area with kitchen and the suite was clean. However the decor was very outdated and the air conditioning situation was odd... More

This hotel was a last minute find and was a good choice. Close to downtown Mackinaw and Mackinaw Crossings so all you have to do is walk across the street. Located between the ferries that take you to Mackinaw Island. Rooms with lake view balconies have magnificent views and in the morning you can barely open the curtains due to... More

I stayed at the Comfort Inn Lakeside (not to be confused with another Comfort Inn down the street) for two nights at the end of June 2014 in a first floor room. The room was clean and the decor was up-to-date. The bed and the pillows were very comfy! I was put off by an envelope left with the maid's... More

Stayed here 6/20 & 6/21. Good location, near the ferry docks. The room was ok, nothing special. It did have a mini fridge that was good to have. The biggest problem was the May flies (or Midges they called them) that were still around in late June-- that were just all around the area. (Not the hotel's fault!) If you... More

I've stayed at four of the beachfront hotels over the years. The Comfort Inn Lakeside is on par with the others that surround it. Certainly cleaner than the Hamilton. Breakfast is the usual instant egg powder, bread products and make-yourself waffles, identical to every other hotel on the strip. It's walking distance to the Star Line ferry. Rooms are clean,...
