Stayed here for two nights at the end of our vacation because of storms and we were Tent Camping. Great room for the rate. Was clean, staff was awesome. Pool was cold but thats understandable. Will definately stay again.

We choose this place due to their great rates. It even looked good on the website! We were thoroughly disappointed due to the poor quality of the room. It was very outdated and in need of several repairs. Although it was evident that they did clean the room it was just too filthy to really tell because of its state... More

Budget Inn was very clean. We had reserved a deluxe double bed room. Upon arrival, our room was on second floor. My husband is unable to walk up the stairs. They found us a room on the first floor.....a very, very small room with one double bed. The bathroom WAS TINY!! No phone in room. Asked for the wifi access... More

I couldn't have been any happier with my stay in Mackinaw City. The prices could not be beat. The room was very clean and comfortable and included a refridgerator and microwave oven. The hotel is within walking distance to the main strip and boats to Mackinac Island. The indoor heated pool was a bonus. The staff was very friendly and... More

Budget Inn Mackinaw was clean, comfortable, budget minded, and all we needed. It was conveniently located. Although it was a little difficult to find, it was worth the hunt. We would enjoy staying there again!

We stopped here because the sign said "lowest rates". We were quoted a decent price, but it wasn't as low as we found online for the hotel next door. When I told the clerk this they gladly matched that price. So we walked into our less than $50 out the door priced room. The reviews we had read prior were... More

We rented two rooms for our trip to Mackinaw with kids and grandkids. Nice rooms, clean, comfy and the fridge was very useful. Grandkids loved the pool, and we enjoyed the hot tub. Also enjoyed the breakfast to get our day started. Would recommend!

Room was dirty, looks like they only surface clean the room. Electrical plugs don't even stay in the outlets, extremely loose. Front desk was not even close to being friendly.Their breakfast is in another hotel next door & wasn't anything special, very minimal.

I am a budget vacationer so I am used to staying in "cheap" motels and am often nervous what we will find. At Budget Inn Mackinaw we found a wonderful surprise! The room was clean and spacious, it had a separate bedroom inside of the room where our two kids slept (it had it's own TV as well) which gave... More

Nice quiet stay, close to town, staff was very friendly and room was nice. Breakfast serving was a little different but had an overall great experience. There are 2 hotels together and they have 2 pools, one indoor and outdoor and you can use either, which was a nice option.
