My stay was miserable. The room had two separate bed rooms with a door between the rooms. The problem was that the air conditioner was in only one bedroom. The second room was warm and did not get air flow. The room was not clean. Hand towels and wash clothes were not provided. Called to front desk to request. They... More

We stayed for three nights. Four rooms were rented. The rooms were cleaned daily, used towels were removed and never replaced in any of the four rooms for three days. The hot breakfast bar was not cared for: garbage was not removed, the cereal bowls were too small for the amount dispensed. Cereal flowed over the floor along with milk... More

We stayed in a 1-story cabin with queen bed. This was rather nice and being isolated, was also quiet. However, at $119+$13 tax, was quite overpriced. The 25-foot long breakfast bar was disappointing. There were bisquits and gravy and make-it-yourself waffles, but everything else was cold stuff. OH... parking at our cabin door was great!

Our family visited Econo Lodge, only because we wanted a water park for the kids and a free hot breakfast, but after staying the night here, would NOT go back no matter what. The rooms are WAY overpriced and were filthy to say the least, mold in the bathroom, I found a bug in the bed, an empty alcohol bottle... More

If you've made it to this site & STILL decide to stay here, then shame on you. Plenty of stories about this dump, but here's one more... We got to the Econo Lodge ~11am before heading to the island for the day. We thought there might be a chance of us checking in early. The Jamaican woman behind the counter... More

I reserved a cabin for our party of 6 online. A couple days later I received a message to call the motel only to find that that there were no cabins available, but they did have motel rooms for a better price. I booked 2 rooms. One room was provided with only one hand towel and wash cloth. There is... More

We made reservations a few months ago to stay in one of the 2 bedroom cabins. After making the reservation, we received a message to contact the motel. They told us that the cabins were all booked, but that we could stay at the motel on the same property for less money. We went ahead and reserved 3 nights at... More

I reserved a cabin online for my family in March! They gave us a confirmation #, we called to confirm a week before our trip to mackinaw and everything was ok....when we arrived they didn't have us booked. The manager was VERY unprofessional she even ignored us for a bit to help other customers which some of them had the... More

I rented a 2 queen room for $65. It's worth the extra $30 to stay at the Comfort Inn or Best Western (I've stayed at all). I travel with my 3 children ages 12, 9, and 7. Upon first walking in the musty dirty smell was bad. The hotel is definitely out dated but that doesn't bother me as long... More
