The customer service was rude, and unkind. We experienced an unclean room, and no towels with half eaten piece of pizza left in the pull out couch from a previous customer. When we told the lady at the front desk she was unkind. I asked for management who was as equally unkind. He did send a rude cleaning lady to... More

The cabin was great, no hooks to hang any jackets, wifi in the evening was terrible. Would not connect for tablet or even phone use. Breakfast at the comfort suites was okay. Extremely hot on the third floor. Very congested trying to get your breakfast.

My husband and I recently spent a night at this hotel. We arrived late at night so actually had to go next door to the Comfort Inn to check in. The host there did not give us directions to our room but in answer to a question said we were in one of the cabins (they have both cabins and... More

The location of this property is great. Right across from a ferry to Mackinac Island. Our family stayed in one of the cabins, and everything was fine. There was plenty of room for six of us - the kitchenette was a nice addition. Even though, we have no real complaints, our cabin was clean and the beds were comfy, everything... More

the room was wonderful & was pleasantly surprised it had a refrigerator. Also liked the fact that the ferry was right across the street as well. Very convenient. Wish there was a hair dryer, iron & ironing board like it stated it had but I prepared for it anyway since we were there to attend a wedding on the island.... More

We had reservations for two "cabins" located next to each other...we got there and the rooms were now "booked". Our view was the back of the cleaning staff loading-unloading, piles of dirty laundry! Room was filthy and hot! They had left the heat on (this was August) and we could not tolerate it! Air conditioning did not even begin to... More
