After a night at a less-than-stellar place, I needed breakfast, and this place was the closest with breakfast (serve it all day). Waitstaff was quick, friendly, and the food came out pretty quick -- and COFFEE WAS REFILLED QUICK AND OFTEN. Struck up a conversation with the manager, who was coming around to check on his customers, and turned out... More

Such a cute and quaint motel! The restaurant offers a great brunch!! Location is perfect right by the ferry. The restaurant was a great size- never felt over crowded and plenty of room at the buffet. Staff was very friendly. Price was very affordable.

We spent two nights at the Embers and really liked it. Our room was just like the one of the picture, very large, very clean, and tastefully decorated. It is very conveniently situated right across from the ferry terminal for Mackinac island so we could just walk over in a couple of minutes in the morning, no stress. The staff... More

This is definitely not the old Embers Restaurant / Buffet. 1001% better. Menu is not so big one gets lost or die of starvation before ordering, but included all the basics and bells & whistles for a fair price for a tourist town. Our meal included an appetizer of Whitefish spread, and O M G. The whitefish is brought in... More

Don't let the exterior fool you. The dining area had a nice, simple, nautical theme. It was clean and the servers were extremely friendly and helpful. The menu is mostly American with a few standard Italian and Mexican favorites, but the quality was exceptional. The prices were typical of the area $10-15.

Located right across the street from the Arnold Ferry Mackinaw Island departure point this is a great place to have wine and bar food if you have an hour or so. We just missed a ferry and went in for some beer and wine. The bartender is the friendliest and most knowledgeable you will find, the locals are really nice... More

The inside of the rooms were brand new and the staff were very friendly. Overall the exterior was very worn and the common areas showed a lot of wear and tear. I would visit again because the rooms were clean and the staff was so eager to please. I did not try the restaurant. If you can score a room... More

Awesome food and great service! The chicken is amazing, so is the potato bacon soup! We didn't stay at the inn, we just stopped in for dinner. The staff was super nice and fast. I looked up the info for the inn, for our next trip and I love how they decorated the rooms. We are definitely staying here next... More
