Really nice hotel for an overnight stay in the city before departing for the Island. It was conveniently located within walking distance of the main part of Mackinaw City. We had a room overlooking the water. The room was large and very clean. They have a nice beach area for guests in addition to an indoor pool and hot tub.... More

We were pleased with this hotel. Our room was right on the beach and had a great view. Unfortunately, it got cold and rained while we were traveling so we weren't able to enjoy it, however, had the weather cooperated we certainly would have! The staff was nice. Our room was nice as well.

The hotel is very nice. I have stayed there several times over the last 4 summers. I have always been happy with my stays there. The included breakfast should have more choices. The staff is quite friendly and ready to answer any questions you may have. If you have any issues while there, they will take them seriously and fix... More

This hotel is in a great location within Mackinac City. The lobby is welcoming and front desk staff are friendly and professional. Several rooms offer fantastic lake views. Rooms are clean and nicely appointed. The little stretch of beach is very pretty and invites you to enjoy it.

We had a great view of the lake, you can't beat that. Beach is good, but not well maintained and is subject to the type of people staying there. Some upgrades to the hotel, but many more needed for an average $225 per night. We had leaky faucets and the chrome finish on fixtures was just about gone. Looks like... More

Just want to say thanks to Dave the Manager and his very friendly staff. We stayed this past Friday & Saturday nights. Dave made sure we had safe parking for our Pick-Up Truck and Trailer along with Harley's. They were full both nights but everything was clean and quite. This will be the first place I call for next years... More

The motel and staff were first class and their location was within walking distance of most local attractions. You are a short walk(or a shuttle pickup at the front door) to the various ferry operators to Mackinac Island too! They have a nice continental breakfast with one of the bigger dining areas I've seen.

Can't beat the private beach which the kids loved. Steps from ferry line to Mack Island as well as downtown Mack City. So great location. Room was nicely furnished but not great, with comfortable beds and pretty up to date styling although some wear marks. One room suite was kind of cramped. Top floor so our beach side balcony was...
