Place was hard to find since it was my first time in Mackinaw City. The sign was like the size of a science project poster board. We arrived on Aug 5th thinking that it would be near some of the larger, well known hotels. Of course, we were wrong. Turns out, the "resort" is a mile or two away from where all the action is, but thankfully, we had a car. Anyway, that's not the worse part.
The most unsatisfying thing about this place is the lack of cleanliness. When we got to our room, there were a ton of misquitos inside. Not only that, the shower was dirty, and there were cobwebs all over the windows. It almost seemed as if people knew to avoid the place! It was dusty and the floor was super moist. Perfect for misquito breeding. When you look at the walls, there are remnants of splatted bugs. Luckily we had a great cleaning lady who thought it was okay to leave these "sights of Mackinaw" there. The bug problem was so bad, we all had to use bug spray on us before we slept. (I think I was under the covers the entire time.) We left a light on just so the bugs would stay in that area.
Now on to ammenities of this so-called "resort". First off, the beach. Boy, was that a fun time! I had a lot of fun scraping off the pebbles from under my foot, and hoping that there wasn't any glass. After getting the sand off our feet, it was time to head to the outdoor heated pool! One look, we turned our heads away. There were dead bugs, tree leaves and branches, and other unmentionables (trust me, it helps keep this review PG-13).
Thankfully, we only stayed one night. Otherwise, I think we may have headed to a different place in the city. I would suggest the Clarion, Days Inn, Hamilton Inn, and probably Northpointe Inn. (They looked really nice on the outside.)
