Hot tub and pool area was nice. Had to walk outside to connecting hotel to get wristbands though. Front desk should of also had them. Breakfast was good. Wish they would change it up a bit though. Seems to be the same thing at every hotel. Room was clean. Pop machine was broke and only took change . Cart full... More

Our room was pretty run down, the walls were paper thin, the wifi doesn't work at all, and our room wasn't as clean as I had hoped it would be, BUT it's really close to everything and pretty cheaply priced. You definitely get what you pay for. We heard every person that walked up and down our hallway. When the... More

We stayed here during a recent trip to Mackinac Island. The hotel was clean and provided a hot breakfast that consisted of eggs, sausage, hot gravy. along with waffles, Considering the free price we both found it OK. Our bed was not the most comfortable we have slept in, but we have certainly slept on worse. Front desk staff were... More

I am surprised to see all the negative reviews because this hotel is a little bit older (as most hotels in Mackinaw are). However, it is quaint & cozy, but most importantly clean. The staff were exceptionally friendly and It is located in a great area (lots to do in Mackinaw City). I would ignore all the previous negative reviews.... More

This was our one mistake on our road trip through this beautiful area. We did not realize how easy the Mackinaw area would be to navigate and snapped at what looked to be the only sure option. So wrong - there were so many better options advertising availability and at a much lower price even as we went through the... More

We checked in our hotel and the front desk failed to mention we could use 3 waterparks in Mackinaw City and she also failed to explain the rules of using the waterparks and the fact that we needed a separate signed waiver from each waterpark. The description on the website said there was sandy beach access, but it failed to... More

The hotel overall was ok. Extremely loud!! People constantly slamming their doors and stomping above you. It's like there isn't even a door there. You can hear everything. Lots of drunk people come in and are loud. Do not stay here!! Loud!!!

Got an excellent deal via booking.com so wasn't expecting anything spectacular. Front desk concierge was very friendly and helpful upon our check-in and offered us discounted ferry tickets which were a great bargain. She also gave us a coupon book and patiently answered all my questions. After inspecting our room and finding it clean and bug free (the bathroom appeared... More

Online it said 1/2 mile private beach front.. umm the beach is on the opposite side of the road, so now I'm already not happy. After check in we go to our room and see food in the trash in the bathroom,... More

The room was clean with comfy pillows and mattress. There were a few cosmetic issues; cracked toilet tank lid, scraped plaster over shower and apparently burned counter top (covered by soap dish). The staff was friendly, the beds were made and trash removed on day two and the Water Park, pool and spa were a great perk for the price.... More
