Management sucks! We stayed an entire weekend here. The last Night, we went to lock The door and the entire hinge came off! What did management do??? Nothing! No compensation! No appeasement for the customer! Maybe if we were European things wld have been diff! The manager on duty basically blew us off! I will be sending. Letter to corporate... More

this hotel is OK but expensive for what it offers. The lakeside rooms have great views, but the pool is not attached to the room building so you would have to run out in the cold if you want to swim in the indoor pool. There is also many funny levels so you would be hard pressed to stay here... More

I love traveling and am lucky enough to travel often. I've learned some lessons. Not staying here will be one of them. We have a wheelchair in our travel party. I've learned from past experiences to call the front desk of a hotel when setting up a reservation instead of the 1-800 number because I have certain questions I need... More

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
