We have stayed at Econo Lodges up and down I-75 all the way from Michigan to Florida for the past 10 yrs but have never been in such a dirty, out dated room as the Econo Lodge in Mackinaw City. Not only was the room bad but the desk clerks could not have been more unfriendly un- informative and just... More

False advertising! You think you are going to be placed in one of the nicer cabins and you end up in a shed! The website was very misleading. IT SMELLED, Paint was chipping and the staff was rude!. The free breakfast was beyond disgusting. A half eaten apple was in the bowl of fruit, believe me, it had been there... More

We booked a room through their website, which was very misleading. We thought we were getting a newly remodeled room with a loft for the kids to sleep in and were excited about staying there. When we got there, we were told we had not booked that room at all, and needed to pay $20 more per night (two nights)... More

The wifi and cable didn't work. The hot water in the shower would pulse between hot and cold. Parking was non existent for the amount of rooms available. And the maintenance man almost hit us head on with his truck in the parking lot. The only nice thing about this hotel was the fact that it was directly across the... More

Arrived on July 3rd. The front desk lady and manager were a bit rude. This complex is joined with two other hotels from the same hotel group chain. For the July 4th weekend the rates were a bit over the top considering the place but free access to the nearby water park kind of helped.

Booked our room thru their website... Which is very misleading. Place was old and rundown. The amenities they offered are actually at neighboring hotels. Lady at front desk apparently hated her job and has no personality. There are dozens of nicer places to stay at more reasonable prices!!!

The website is deceiving. We booked here, we needed 3 rooms and this had availability with a under 100$ price per night. Free breakfast, beach, waterpark- too good to be true. We stayed in the hotel, located behind all the cabins. Small, dark rooms. No blow dryer or ironing boards( as advertised on the site). The beach is across the... More

The room had black mold growing in the bathroom. The floors looked like they had not been vacuumed in 2 months. When attempting to change rooms, we met hostility from the foreign speaking staff. They made us wait for 30 minutes to change arrangements. I would not recommend staying here to anyone, even the deal seekers.

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
