This is by far the WORST hotel we have EVER stayed at!!! It took three rooms before we would even consider staying! The room was dirty, smelled musty and the carpet was filthy! The mattresses looked like they had gone to the local landfill to purchase...DISGUSTING!! As was stated in another review we pulled back the sheets to be greeted... More

The moment we checked in, and everything in between was terrible. They wouldn't honor the AAA rate, or even discuss the charges, lied about the manager not being available for several days after checkout, advertised Wifi didn't work either. Don't go there.

We stayed in one of the cabins & it was an absolute delight. They're very cozy & comfortable. Dave W was really friendly & helpful. He was very knowledgeable about the area, even helped us find a great place to eat. We look forward to returning.

This hotel received one star because no less is available. We booked this hotel to try and save a buck or two during our one night traveling through mackinaw city. BAD idea. We were greeted by less than enthusiastic staff who directed us to our room. The room was very tiny and had certainly seen better days but we weren't... More

Rude front desk people, nasty room, crack under front door that a cat could get through, free breakfast bar that was servicing 2 motels so no place to eat or sit, sheets on bed were not fitted so came off everytime you moved and the mattress was dirty. Ruined our stay in Mackinaw City!

I read many, MANY reviews of hotels in Mackinaw City before booking. I ended up going with Econo Lodge for the location and price. I saw the same complaints about a lot of the hotels and figured that if there wasn't a really great reason to pay more, then why would you. Started off rocky because their computer system was...

We arrived to check-in and immediately, the woman at the front counter was unbelievably rude. When we entered our room, we found bugs in the bathroom and there were no fitted sheets on the beds - the mattresses were exposed. When we checked out, I looked under the beds to see if we missed anything and the garbage underneath was... More

We went on a family vacation and stayed at this hotel. Never again! Where to start on what was wrong?! a. You had to throw your body weight into the door to get it to open. b. We had 2 full size towels and 1 wash cloth in our room when we checked in. That is all we got for... More

Watch out for this hotel chain if you have any reason to cancel your reservation! I called three days ahead due to a family emergency and was told it was within the time frame to cancel! Then 10 days later I get a charge and when I ask the OWNER, JACK, to explain, he said it was a few hours... More
