We were told early check-in would be no problem. Normal check-in was 4pm. We got there at 2pm and they said our room would be ready shortly and told us we could use the pool to wait. At 4:15 and still no room,(we were traveling with a 1 and 2 year old) I went back to the office and the... More

I booked this hotel about a month before our arrival. We chose the hotel for its location to the ferries, it had 3 beds and the rooms looked nice. On our arrival we checked in early and they did not have a room ready so we visited Mackinaw Island and returned around 5pm. The rooms are musty smelling upon entering.... More

The staff at the front desk was great-very helpful and worked to accommodate us. But the place is getting pretty dated, the mattress was so sloped in the edge you could fall out in the night, and breakfast was not good. With that many people staying at night, maybe they shouldn't do breakfast.

We stayed here for 3 nights, picked it because it is walkable to Arnold Ferry and the price was good. For the most part a decent hotel, and would have given more than 3 stars but for the housekeeping - we got home one evening about 6:00 from the Upper Peninsula, very tired after a long day. The room wasn't... More

Our check-in went smoothly and the staff were very friendly. Our room was on the second floor and had a Jacuzzi tub which was nice. The room was clean. We didn't go to the breakfast but I heard from other guests it was good. The only downfall is the hotel is on the far end of town so it's a... More

We stayed here two nights. The first after a day of driving and the second after a day on Mackinac Island. The ladies at check-in were very pleasant! It was nice to be able to park the car and walk to the ferry service! Our request for the top floor and extra towels were met and very much appreciated! The... More

We needed a place to stay before we headed to Mackinac Island for a couple days and this place fit the bill quite nicely. The rates were in line with what you would expect in a tourist town (not the cheapest but by far not the highest) and the service was great. We got our ferry tickets at a discount... More

Had a wonderful stay and the management down to the cleaning people were very nice and eager to help in any way, especially indulging my 2 and 4 year in long conversations. Clean room and descent breakfast. Would come again!

Despite glowing reviews, this place is just OK. We booked through a booking site and were penalized for doing it. The lakeview which we expected, was denied, even though their occupancy I'm guessing was probably around 25% on that night. Breakfast was adequate. I'm sure there are better deals nearby.

I loved its location, It was right on the beach. Parking was not a problem, they have plenty of parking spots. Breakfast provided in the hotel was average. The only thing I felt missing was internet connectivity.
