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

We booked 2 Chalets in July with confirmation recieved. On arrival we were given a 2 room cabin (shed) not big enough to sleep our group. 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

We chose to stay here only for the water park but the hotel itself is not worth the price that they charge, ESPECIALLY the weekend prices. The hotel is located behind the cabins that are on the website. The rooms are partially renovated (the bathroom had peeling, stained wallpaper). The front desk staff was rude/unfriendly. Didn't tell us where or... More

We were underwhelmed by the cabins to say the least. Carpet looked vacuumed until I dropped something and needed to look under the edge of the bed - disgusting.The first night we needed to return to the front desk for bath/hand towels and face cloths. The second day was a repeat of the first. The cabin was uneven and was... More

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
