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 :)

Expedia called this hotel the car bins of mackinaw. I booked it and when I got there they were closed for the season. 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

Econo lodge is the dirtiest hotel I stayed at.The towels were dirty, stained, while the bed was not only uncomfortable but the next day I woke up with FLEA BITES. Stay away if you want to stay healthy

We booked this place and they said when we showed up they didn't have our reservation even though I had the confirmation number. So they sent up elsewhere to stay and pay more. The next day we returned and they put us in a cabin that once again was not what I reserved. Horrible experience here, will not even consider... More

Don't stay here. Please don't let your family stay here. The front desk staff were rude. The furniture was broken, flies all over, it smelled, holes in doors, one bed was about a foot lower than the other, mop boards missing, dirty room, old TV, mold and rotten floor in the bathroom, mold on entrance door, refrig on the floor,...

If you want to get to know "the Straits" this is a place to consider. Ferry docks to Mackinac Island are within a short walk as are the shops and restaurants, the pier, and views of the bridge. Our room was completely clean, modern and comfortable with typical northern Michigan decor. Even though there were other guests on both sides... More

The female clerk knew as soon as she put my name in the computer, there was a problem. Both my daughter and I saw her reaction.The male who said he was the manager and... More
