The hotel was pretty decent but we stayed on the 3rd floor with a lake view and they did not have an elevator that went to the area where our room was, we had to go to the 3 floor and then go down some stairs and then up some stairs to get to our room. Very strange and hard... More

The staff was courteous. The free breakfast was acceptable, but did not have very many dairy free options. The rooms were clean and reasonably priced. If you don't plan on spending all day in the room, it is definitely worth it.

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
