My family and I had reservations for this hotel for two nights; we decided before the day was over we were not staying here for another night. Upon walking into the room, it had an unattractive odor to it. The bathroom area was very small, cramped, and falling apart, not to mention the ventilation in the bathroom had no cover so the light bulb and dust were clearly visible. The heating system was difficult to maintain a comfortable temperature, one way was far too warm, the other freezing in a matter of minutes.

I tried to speak to the front desk staff in attempts to get a refund or credit for the second night of our reservation. I voiced my frustrations and concerns, and she had an unprofessional and condescending attitude with me the entire time. I will most definitely be contacting hotels.com (where we made our reservation) to try and get a refund or credit....and we will most definitely never come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel!

We took a vacation this summer and toured Michigan. Evrything during the trip was perfect EXCEPT our stay at his hotel. During the whole trip we stayed at three hotels and ironically this one was the most expensive one when we made our resevations. Rooms look neglected, and just give a cheap vibe, kind of like that they are clean, but have not been worked on for 20 years. The TV was old, and the picture was really fuzzy. The only advantage is the location, on the beach, although the hotel doesn't really have it's own beach, but, as we were told has access to the neighboring hotel's beach. The friends we traveled with liked the hotel pool, which we personally didn't try as we thought it was weird - a glassed-in building in the middle of the hotel parking lot, just didn't feel right, but they said that the pool itself was great. The breakfast was OK and the personnel was nice so I guess it wasn't all that bad, but if we were to go back to Mackinaw City we would go to a different hotel.

Overall the room was poorly maintained. The walls had poorly patched holes. The tub was very stained. The sink over flow drain was disgusting. The bathroom door was broken. Even the cord on the hair dryer was horribly dirty! The room entry door did not close tightly. The wifi didn't work. The balcony creaked loudly when you walked on it. The sliding door was extremely difficult to open and close. The furnishings were old and worn. The bedding was also very old and worn. When we arrived the bed was covered in pet hair. The room was very stale smelling. The hotel grounds showed no signs of being maintained on a regular basis as there was a "weed" tree outside our window that was almost six feet tall. The outside of the building itself was covered in spider webs and was very dirty. Overall I'd give this hotel zero stars and would not stay there again if they paid me to do so.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel.
