Me & hubby stayed in one of the beachfront rooms. With a romantic package deals. Nothing fancy with the package. Simple gift basket. Dinner worth $50 for 2 (paid $40 basically $10 off) Not so clean areas. Dusty chair and carpet. Cobwebs between railings of the balcony. Stained on the bathroom ceilings. This hotel needs cosmetic repairs inside. Outside looks... More

We booked into this hotel thinking the reviews looked pretty good and we were booking late. For the rate we paid I thought our experience was not a great one. Started with the check-in, we got there after check-in time and our rooms were not ready. They blamed it on wanting to give us adjoining rooms. They knew we were... More

We had a suite with a king sized bed in one room and 2 queens in another that shared a bathroom. Both rooms had a nice sized tv. The room with the king bed was super crowded with furniture - we would rather have not had the table in there to allow for more room to walk. There were 2... More

Stayed here for a weekend in the two room suite w family, 3 queen beds and 2 bathrooms. Fridge microwave. Nice room, comfortable beds, relatively clean. Had two huge flat screen tvs in each room mounted on the wall. Only complaint was breakfast, the hot food wasn't great tasting, and there's not enough room for everyone that goes to breakfast...

Loved the room. We had a lakefront view with 2 queen size beds and a sofa bed. The view was great, you could see the water from your bed, nice little balcony with a beach view and seagulls on the beach. the room was large, decorated better than your average hotel room. Furnished breakfast was so so but loved the... More

My wife and daughter and I stayed here due to my cousin and family booking a room here. They were in from Baltimore Maryland. I called for a reservation the weekend before we were to travel up to Mackinaw City. The reservation person was very helpful and asked if I was affiliated with any groups. I mentioned a couple then... More

The room was small, but clean and adequate. It was quiet even though the parking lot was full of cars. The breakfast room is large but always packed and difficult to get anything. The breakfast had a poor selection so I was very disappointed. We didn't drive so this hotel is too far south on Huron to town, attractions, and... More

We were treated wonderfully by the staff from the moment we arrived. Our room wasn't ready, so they upgraded us- wonderful upgrade- beautiful large room with a jacuzzi tub, clean and quiet. The breakfast that came with the room was the best free hotel buffet I've seen. The food was great, and again the staff was very friendly. It was... More

Rooms were nice until I jumped in shower next morning to see MOLD on the shower wall and ceiling in Room 108. Spoke to the Mgr that morning and he told me he could not do anything and I should have told them the... More

I've stayed in many hotels over the last 10 years. I'm very easy to please and can adapt to most situations. I don't usually complain when I am at a hotel, I just know whether or not I will recommend. This hotel I do not recommend. Way to costly for the quality of accommodations. The rooms are very dated and... More
