Stopped here on a whim coming home from Wisconsin to New York. I won't reveal the price but suffice to say I had a beach front room to the Mackinac Straits. When I got up the next morning, I was greeted with the most beautiful sunrise I had seen in years. Staff was friendly and helpful, and breakfast was great.... More

The Hotel was just OK for $300 per night that I paid. I guess unless they are in real exotic places they are all the same as in poor. It was not really good at all. It was a 3 or less star hotel & I paid about $300 per night which was NOT worth my money. I was excited... More

We had an overnight stay the night before a marathon on Mackinac Island. This motel is walking distance to Arnold's Ferry. The staff gave us several suggestions where to dine the night before - great advice! We had a beautiful roomy suite that slept six with a balcony that gave us a gorgeous lakeside view. Several of us used the... More

The Clarion is a wonderful hotel. This is our second visit and we've been super please both times. This time, we chose a waterfront view and it was just beautiful. The room was large and very clean. The staff was friendly and housekeeping even folded my boys PJ's that had been left on the bed. The breakfast is always well... More

This was our 3rd time staying over the past 4 years. Checkin was quick and efficient. The room was very clean. Housekeeping does a great job keeping all clean. The bed was very comfortable. There were some very minor issues of wear and tear that should be addressed. The door did not close easily, the faucets dripped if not fiddled... More

This place was clean and conveniently located, but the decor is very dated and worn. Also, the pool and ice machine are in a separate building from the hotel which was very undesirable on a cold and rainy night. Since it was after Labor Day, the rates were quite low, but I would have felt that I over paid if... More

Stayed the weekend for business. Didn't have the breakfast so cannot comment on that. The room was clean and exactly what I booked online. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The price was very reasonable for the room. There was hallway noise but it the most part it was quiet. They only give you a receipt if you ask... More

We were in the area to go to Mackinaw Island for our anniversary. The hotel had placed decorative towels in heart shapes on our bed and was a thoughtful gesture for our arrival. The staff at breakfast were accommodating and the stay overall was very nice. Don't hesitate to book this hotel.
