We had such a great time at the Clarion Hotel Beachfront, we wished we could stay longer. The front office staff was amazing. They were helpful and friendly. We were traveling with a senior with health issues and the staff was helpful working with me and local health services. With their help we were able to make our stay comfortable.... More

We spent the night here while driving from Minneapolis to New Jersey. We found it clean, pleasant and comfortable. The people were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good. Spending a night compared to a week might be different so I can't speak to that. The night we had was comfortable. We would, based on our experience, come here... More

My boyfriend and I went on a vacation last weekend and stayed here. It wasn't as bad as some of the reviews said but, it could've been a little cleaner. Overall we had a decent stay and the staff was very helpful and informative.

We picked this hotel based on reviews and photos. Booked a 2 room with one bath on 3rd floor. Hotel itself was run down. Room was very outdated, smelled like mold and just seemed icky dirty. Ran a finger over vanity and got a finger full of dust. Mattresses on beds were very old and obviously well used. Could not... More

The beds were comfortable and the rooms clean and apparently recently updated. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We stayed here two days for our trip to the Island, therefore we did not not use the indoor pool or beach facilities. They did look inviting. The breakfast room was located in another wing in a very large upstairs room.... More

The room was perfect. We had the room with 2 bedrooms, with one bath for our family. The beds were very comfortable, the pool was never crowded. Great location, the breakfast was a wonderful start to the day, and bigger than we had planned. Yes we would go back again!

Not impressed at all! Looking at the reviews I was expecting an amazing room. Lake view, but on the bottom floor, so the jacuzzi could only be used with the curtains closed, defeating the purpose. And there were lil plastic flakes in the tub when we first filled it. The remote for the tv was missing. My husband called the... More

Overall it was a great stay. Yes the rooms are date and the pool is as well, but this is common for the Mackinaw City Area. The lock to our room was broken, the maintenance staff was very quick to fix our lock. They did offer us another room, but it wouldn't of had the same view of the lake... More

We had a 3rd floor room with a balcony looking out over Lake Huron. Room was very outdated and needed a thorough cleaning. We had mold on the ceiling of the bathroom and had a hard time finding a good outlet to charge cell phones. Some outlets were so worn out that the charger wouldn't stay plugged in. The tracks...
