This hotel was very clean and offered great amenities. Whereas most hotels offer just what is required, this one goes above and beyond for guest comfort. For example, they offer makeup remover towelettes in the bathrooms (not that I use them, them but a nice touch nonetheless), extra towels, and everything you could possibly want for breakfast. Also, they have the largest cable package of any hotel I have ever stayed at, tho I don't think the programming is in ND.
I wasn't terribly fond of the decor package choices, but was pleasantly surprised with everything else... including full balconies on all 3rd and 4th floor rooms.
I only found one minor cleanliness concern, and that was a spot on the inside of the sheer curtain. But, I don't know how the housekeeper would have even seen it, unless she stood inside the shower and pulled the curtain to clean it.
Very few hotels in Mackinaw are branded, and you just don't know what you will get. But, I can honestly say that this hotel exceeded my expectations for the Holiday Inn Express brand. I HIGHLY recommend it.
