“Checked out early”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Was going to stay 2 nights but canceled the second day. Checked in our room was freezing. After looking around the room we noticed many things that needed improvemnet. There was light coming in all around the door with wind coming through. Looked very old and worn. Room was in need of paint. No flat screen tv. Called the front desk for the wifi access to be told no wifi in rooms only at lobby. Never heard of such a thing. The bathroom light if thats what you call it was so dim could only see the chipped paint ,bad grout and ripped wall paper.Coffee maker in room was not cleaned and had old coffee grounds & coffee in it. Another couple asked why the pool was so cold the young woman at desk tried to give some excuse. For breakfast you have to go outside to the room and it was cold and rainy. Not much selection and coffee tasted instant. Was suppose to have a room with a view we did all right of cars parked for the ferry for the island. Sorry would not stay here again.

The hotel claims to be an "award winning hotel" but it must have been for being dirty, being cramped and smelly, it must have been a flppr i wasn't on!
I always bring my own linens and towes when I travel. The first thing I do is strip the bed and put on my own bedding. This bed had curly haris ALL over the sheet. The second thing I do is take out my antibacterial wipes and clean the remote, the night stand, the toilet seat. If I touch it I clean it. The toilet seat had brown smears on it. The bathroom floor had no grout abnd 2 tiles were broken with the jagged edges exposed. I had to pry the window opend to release the smell. The handle to the shower was missing. It took almost 10 minutes to get hot water. The floor had all kinds of little bits of garbage. The swimming pool room was so dark it was hard to see. The hot tub had so much chipped paint it poked your behind as you tried to sit. The breakfast room was a block away in an abandoned restaurant.
The front desk clerks were very hard to understand and both asled to see my credit card even
thougn I prepaid through AARP.
We planned on 2 nights there, but ended up going next door to the Clarion and had a great room with a great pool at the same price.
We travel frequently and have enjopyed rooms at the Days Inn before, so this was very disappointing. I think the hotel managers need to check out their hotel rooms from time to time.

We stayed at this hotel during our recent trip to Mackinac Island.
The hotel was good with enough parking. Very close to lake.
Also, the complimentary breakfast served had a lot of options.
This hotel is very close to the ferry dock, you can simple walk over there.
Will love to stay again at this place.
