We were given the "last" room which is almost above the office and is right next to the road. There is no elevator to the 3rd floor so we lugged our suitcases up 3 floors. The lack of an elevator is something that should have been disclosed upfront, especially if one has physical problems. During check-in, the hotel clerk spoke... More

This hotel is a block from the high speed ferry. They are well equipped to handle large groups traveling together. We were a party of 5 and the two adults got a bedroom that we could close the door between us and the kids. Breakfast was included: eggs, sausages, cereal, bagels, fruit, oatmeal, toast,mini sweet rolls and juices. It was... More

Good place to stay. Clean rooms, good front desk service. We stayed the second week of September. The hot tub is kind of hidden between the laundry room and the pool. It would be nicer if it were out in the open by the pool where people could enjoy it. When you used the hot tub, you really felt confined.... More

The room was nice and well priced, but what really made this a value was the free breakfast. Eggs, sausage, waffles, lots of fresh fruits; everything you want! This would have cost me $25 - $30 at a local restaurant! Subtracted from the price of the hotel, I feel like this was the best value in town.

I would recommend Clarion in Mackinaw City to everyone. The staff a great! The rooms are clean, neat, roomy with a great view of the lake. I had a small problem with operating the tv and help was there right away. This was not a major issue that would cause any frustration it is just to let all know the... More

Not sure where the bad reviews are coming from. Our room was well lit. No smell. Well cleaned. Nice, comfortable beds. Big tv. Nice balcony. Friendly staff. Breakfast was good. Lots to choose from. Eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereal, waffles, bagels, fruit, donuts, peanut butter, toast, milk, apple and orange juice. Spent a lot time here today because of... More

We stayed at the Clarion Beachfront at the end of a 5 day trip in Northern Michigan. We needed a hotel after leaving Mackinac Island and before coming home to Southern Michigan - chose this one mainly due to price and location. We liked the room for the most part although we got an upper level room, beach front room... More

We were only in Mackinaw City for Sunday night of Labor Day weekend and expected all the hotels to be full. After checking prices on-line, we decided to check in. The process went smoothly and we amazed at the size of our room. It was a king/ jacuzzi room and it could have held 3 more beds. It was very... More

Chose to stay to split up the long drive from Marquette to Saginaw. What a mistake! The room smelled awful, like some kind of chemical! Mold on the toiletries on sink and bathroom exhaust fan. Wiped the remote with a damp rag, it was filthy. Towel folded on rack was wet and one had makeup on it!! Not a comfortable... More
