Had a lakeside room and the view was fantastic. Watched the Island Ferries come and go, parasailers all day and a great sunrise! Breakfast was all we could ask for. Room was clean and the desk was great for my laptop to keep up on the latest.

Clean and well maintained. Mattress was very comfortable. Near the downtown area. Secure place to leave bikes overnight was really helpful. Good breakfast with lots of choices. Friendly helpful staff.

Stayed here for two nights over the 4th of July holiday, and we got a really good rate through the Mackinaw City website. The front desk staff were nice and friendly. The room was clean. We had a beachfront room with a balcony, which was okay. Breakfast was typical hotel breakfast. The location is fantastic - within walking distance to... More

We stayed one night before heading to Mackinac Island for a week. We had a suite with 2 queens and a king in a separate room. Unfortunately there was no ventilation in the separate bedroom so even with the door open and the a/c cranked to high it got warm and stuffy in there. Other than that, the rooms were... More

Hotel lives up to its ratings. Nice, clean and staff was friendly and accommodating. The pool could use some adult time. We got chased out by too many kids and little adult supervision. The beach was nice.

We would definitely choose to stay here again upon returning to Mackinac City. The location was wonderful - walking distance to shops and restaurants, and on the water. Staff was friendly and helpful. Used the fitness room which was adequate, as well as the breakfast. The rate was very reasonable for a tourist town, especially for the location - on... More

Getting a room facing the lake is worth the extra money, especially on July 4, as the fireworks go over the lake and you have a front view from your balcony. Location is convenient to the various attractions including the ferry to Mackinac Island for which they sell discounted tickets.

We were traveling in Northern Michigan, following the coast, stopping in different towns every night. We did not have a reservation when we arrived at Mackinaw City. Dave and his excellent staff were able to accommodate us. When we decided we wanted to stay 3 nights, they worked very hard and were able to give us a lakeside room for... More
