“Great place to stay and play!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We stayed here this past weekend, and we also stayed here a few years ago on Christmas Eve. The rooms are very nice and so spotless. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The casino has great machines. The only downside is the restaurant, the food is not good. I will be staying here again next summer for at least four nights. We give it an A+.

We expected less. Rooms were nice size, staff pleasant, casino fairly generous, many incentives were fun and generous as well. We would stay here again no problem. One easy incentive was fifteen dollars of gasoline.

My husband, in laws, and I decided to stay at Kewadin Shores on our way to Mackinac Island for a little gambling entertainment. Upon arrival we checked in without incident and went to our rooms. We had a good stay. My only complaints would be the deadbolt got stuck on my in laws room and and our room although non-smoking smelled like an ashtray. The rooms were clean and the air conditioning was refreshing. Bathrooms big and no shower temperature issues. I do agree the beds are hard, but I actually really liked them and they were not lumpy.
We did go to the casino and my assessment is they need more than 1 soda machine! It was constantly out of ice and people were always waiting in line.
We also went to the buffet restaurant on site because my in laws had player club coupons. We did not and thought $15 per person for the Dinner buffet was a joke. Your soda is not included...which is dumb when you can get it in the casino for free and most buffets include this with your meal anyway. We drank water and just filled up on pop afterwards. The food in the buffet was not very good. The fish was dried out and the food was pretty bland. I would probably just skip it and go into town next time or eat before arriving!

We decided to get away for the day, and headed up to St. Ignace. The casino is small, but nice, with newer games. The drinks are very reasonably priced, especially compared to Soaring Eagle in MT. Pleasant. We ate at the buffet and it was OK, nothing great, but a good price for what you got. Now on to the nights stay, make sure you drink at least a couple of the cheap beers before you head to the sack. I think they forgot the mattress and just put a pad on the box springs. It was hard as a rock, and the pillows were just as bad! We mentioned this problem to them, and they said they were changing out the bedding on that side (parking lot) of the hotel and the other side was much better. So if you go there to spend the night, ask for a room facing the lake.

Room Tip: Stay on the lake side.

We stayed one night after a long day visiting the falls. The hotel was nice, the casino was nice in size and clean. Had the breaskfast buffet, not much different than going to a restaruant buffet at a local joint. We bought the breakfast along with our hotel and got the free money. Which i won $137.00 on..The only complaint We had was that the bed was kind of hard, compared to the comfort of the lamplighters bed in Mackinaw city, Kewadin gets a thumbs down on bed comfort, but it was sleepable after a few drinks and gambling. The bathroom wasn't spotless, soap left on the top edge of shower and a long hair on wall of shower..other than that it was good!!

Room Tip: our room was on the parking lot, could hear the morning grounds crew working and the bus tour people...

Enjoyed our stay. This is a newer hotel so it is well kept and clean. The furniture in the room is rustic style but does not function well, drawers do not open well. Beds are very firm. The small balcony is a nice touch. For a very small casino they have a nice selection of games, some new and cutting edge. The quality of the inn is above average for the area and the rates are very reasonable. Will stay again.

Room Tip: The breakfast Buffett is very blah but was half price on Tuesday. Could not beat it for $4.50 per p...
