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

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

Room was nice and clean and ready for us when we arrived, The fan in the bathroom was a little noisy. Had enough pillows for us, each bed had four pillows and they were soft not had. Nice breakfast, the selection was great.

The exterior of the hotel was rather bad. It appeared to have spider webs and dead insects are all over, on the walls and windows! They really need to have the building power washed from top to bottom. The lobby as well as the rest of the interior could use a lot of updating. We arrived early and decided to... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights and weren't too impressed. When we were there the hotel was newly reopened so perhaps they just haven't gotten it all together just yet. Floor was a bit dirty and room was smelly. After breakfast was a HUGE mess with garbage everywhere but the staff were kind enough.

Don't bother to stay at the Bayside Hotel in Mackinac City. Our room the carpet was dirty with huge stains. The blanket was stained, worn, and not sure when last it was cleaned. The bathroom was just OK, nothing special at all. It looked like in order to clean the grout on the floor tiles they merely painted them a... More

Just got back from a 4-night stay at the Bayside. The women at the front desk were very helpful and friendly every time I talked with them. The room was decent, although the air conditioning was leaking in the room. It was kept clean, water pressure was good, plenty of hot water. TV worked fine, as did the small refrigerator.... More

the rooms were awful, from the dirty walls, clogged sink, cracked tile, air conditioner leaking and the window curtain that don't cover the window. I would not recommend staying here ever again. I've tried to contact the manager since sept 16 when we checked out and guess what nothing!

I bumped up my rating a bit to offset some of the negative karma in other reviews. This is, in my experience, a perfectly decent hotel. By the Tinseltown standards of Mackinaw City, it's down-market, to be sure; but my room, on two separate nights (different nights; I was off on a trip in between), was clean, quiet, and secure....
