We booked the cabins of Mackinaw, they gave our cabin away. They gave use a room in the hotel which they called an "upgrade". It's 5:30 at night and they were still cleaning our room. So we wanted outside in the car for them to finish. Housekeeping kept a small window in the bathroom to overlook the parking lot wide... More

Do NOT try to stay here. I made reservations and received a confirmation number and email. When we arrived the 2 clerks told us we did not have a reservation and said they would find us a room in a nearby hotel, which they did. That hotel had one towel and 1 washcloth in our room. Miraculously, that hotel was... More

The bed was clearly old and beaten up. Either needs to be flipped and rotated more often or needs a new mattress. Also there was no fitted bed sheet on the mattress so any time you took over you pull the flat Street and end up sleeping on the bare mattress. How hard is it too have a fitted sheet... More

I was able to hang out with a few friends during my last stay in mackinaw city at the econo lodge. David the manager was a real cool guy. Helped us out by suggesting a bar called the dixi saloon. I really think I'm gonna rent one of those cabins one day, they are pricy but if I can ever... More

This place looks nice in the pictures and overall, the cabin we stayed in was nice. We had to go get our own towels though and some of the bedding for the sofabed. And the key cards for the door didn't work very well, so we had to keep going back to the front desk ( a bit annoying). Also,... More

Me and my husband came here for our anniversary and it was great! We had a jacuzzi room and we loved it, it was clean and very nice! The front desk guy, David, recommended a very interesting restaurant, Nonna Lisa. It was very romantic. I would definitely come back :)

The lobby had a sign on the doors saying to go to a different hotel for information, I did. They had no recollection of me booking the cabins of mackinaw. They said they could give me a... More
