We stayed at the Econo Lodge for 3 nights in Mackinaw City, during the middle of the week. I considered cancelling my reservation after reading some of the reviews, but the Econo Lodge was within our budget and many of the other hotels were not.
I would recommend that they advertise a little better. The hot breakfast bar is at the Comfort Inn Suites, right next door but still a little different than what you might expect, and the waterpark is used by several different hotels and not exclusive to Econo Lodge. It is located right in between the Econo Lodge and Comfort Inn Suites, very convenient, but, when shared with a number of hotels can become quite busy.
Our room was clean and fresh when we arrived, the furnishings were well maintained, (although I did question the stand for the mini fridge which had no legs). The decor was what you should expect from a travel lodge nothing fancy (our bathroom fixtures were all blue, but clean).
The staff was courteous and helpful (except for the waterpark staff which really should take more interest in what is happening around them instead of just being there). The waterpark itself was great. It was a great time filler for my boys ages 10 and 11 between outings.
All in all, if you are going to Mackinaw City to enjoy the city and the island, this is a perfect place to stay. If you are going so you can stay in your hotel and be pampered with luxuries and services, this is not for you.
