This is an older property but the rooms are well furnished and kept up well. It is located near the ferry docks for trips to Mackinac Island. My room was in the side wing so the view of the parking lot wasn't special but they do have rooms on the beach facing the lake and the bridge. This was an... More

The reception staff are professional and efficient both on arrival and departure. The breakfast bar offers a large variety of fresh, hot items. The lakeside rooms look out on a lovely beach next to the marina where you can see the ferries to/from Mackinaw Island. The rooms are spacious and clean with a balcony and patio doors that brings the... More

This was a really nice, clean property. Great location and gorgeous views of the lake. Easy walk to all amenities. Price competitive for value received. Staff very helpful. Definitely would return on next trip to Mackinaw City.

We loved the hotel! We had a first floor water view with a balcony that was super private. We go often to Mackinac Island and the City and this was our fav Mackinaw City hotel by far. The pool was great. The place was spotless and the breakfast was very good.

I went online to Mackinaw city and was able to book this hotel for $89.00 ($98.79) after all said and done. We arrived early about 2PM and they went ahead and gave us a room. It was clean and nice. We walked behind the hotel and watched the lake and had drinks on hotel lawn chairs. Room was on the... More

Furniture and beds are old and worn out. Bathroom filthy and moldy. Breakfast is nasty. Management awful. Wifi does not work. Very rude and do not have a clue about what good customer service is. Would not advise this place to anyone. Will never stay there again.

We had a wonderful time in Mackinaw City, and loved the pool. Try to get a ground floor or second floor room as there is only one elevator in the entire building. The Staff was extremely accommodating and helpful, knowing the area dining and sights.

Great location. Rooms a bit dated. We have a room on the end on the 4th floor. The drawback is that the patio is so small you can barely get one person on it. If you had a different unit, your patio would be bigger. Also there is only one elevator and it is not central to all the rooms.... More

My first impression of a hotel room is the 'sniff test.' Our room passed with flying colors.There were a couple of problems. Not deal breakers, but the problems with the room and the breakfast bar were why I couldn't give a '5' rating. There was a single serve coffee maker that was supplied with 2 decaf packages and only one... More

This was our second stay here, and the location can't be beat for being near shops, restaurants, and the island ferries. Nice beachfront property on Lake Huron. They do have memory foam mattresses which I hate because they really hurt my back, but my husband loves, so your mileage may vary. Clean room and decent free breakfast.
