Great location, and great bathroom. Dirty carpet ( it was stained), torn sheet in one room and blood on the sheets in the other room. Light switches do nothing. Mismatched lamps. Old out dated furniture. No night stands. Lousy 25 foot breakfast bar. The only choice for egg was a cold hard boiled egg, how ever they have 3 waffle... More

We did not choose this hotel; our tour company did. The complex we stayed in did not have an elevator so those staying on the second floor had to haul their luggage up and down the stairs. It is on the beach and if the weather would have been better, it would have been a nice place to hang out.... More

We had a suite much larger than we ended up needing, two bedrooms; one with two queens and one with a king and there were only the two of us. Much nicer and way larger than the hotel the night before and cheaper - Love Hotwire. The room itself was a bit tired - wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling... More

The rooms are a little worn. they could use new carpets and touch ups. The breakfast is what I would expect in a military mess hall. Not very appetizing. The location is pretty good and you can walk everywhere within about 20 minutes. The free wifi is very slow and cuts out frequently.

Booked a room without a balcony and Brendan upgraded us to a room with a view just for a few more dollars. It was the best decision ever. The view was absolutely worth it. Brendan was so helpful and knowledgeable of the town. It was our first time to this city and we didn't even know where to start. Without... More

Stopped as I was passing through on a business trip and was greeted by Brendan at the front desk. He was very accommodating at getting me a great priced room which was very spacious and very clean. Breakfast the following morning was spot on. I enjoyed my stay enough that I had Brendan book me an upcoming weekend trip for... More

We took room 330 because it would accomadate two couples. Because of the location of the room (according to the manager), the internet did not work well in that room. Of course we did not know this prior to renting the room. We asked for a room switch but was told there were no other rooms available. We asked for... More

We stay here at least one night during every visit to mackinaw. Staff are very friendly, rooms are clean although getting a bit dated. The pool is clean but then again, like the rooms, is getting dated and showing its age. Overall, a reliable and clean mackinaw stay!

We arrived in Mackinaw City without a hotel reservation and were happy to find a room to accommodate our family of 5. The manager worked with us to give us a good rate on a 2 bedroom suite(king and 2 queens). The room was clean and comfortable. This hotel is a pretty big complex - several buildings, lots of rooms,... More

These folks helped me when I needed it the most! I accidentally booked June 16th rather than July 16th, 2015. After driving 400 miles, I was so ready to check in and they had no booking...I went to use their internet and found my silly mistake. Brandon and Margaret provided loving and caring above the call of duty service to... More
