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

The value we paid for the 2 bedroom suite with 3 queen size beds, 1 bath and 1 sofa bed was one of the biggest rip offs I have ever encountered at a so called three diamond aaa hotel. The bathroom was dirty. The decor was out dated and the balcony was infested with mosquitos that we could not even... More

We stay here at least once a year...the reservation process was much smoother this year so seems like new management maybe...last year , we were enroute to this destination and they tried to call our home to confirm we were coming..we weren't home! Someone ahead of us in the lobby trying to check in, had their room given to someone... More

I stayed for 2 nights with my 2 daughters. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. The hotel location was walking distance to the local shops and ferries. The front desk staff were very helpful during our stay. Breakfast was good. Small beach was nice also. The room charge included passes to 3 indoor waterparks off site. We visited... More

Fairly clean room, dirty grout in bathroom. Front desk all Jamacain and not very helpful as far as local sightseeing goes. Nice pool and hot tub.Convenient walking location to shopping and the ferry. Don't bother with free waterparks unless children very small.

Room 405 Balcony with view of the lake. Kerry completed our reservation timely and gave us a personal tour of the room. She made a personal call to our room to ensure the commendations exceeded our expectations. Kerry also suggested and provided our discounted ferry ride tickets to the Island. The daily continental breakfast was delicious and fresh. The room... More

Hotel seems overpriced. Reading other reviews tells me that we were lucky to have a room. The included "free hot breakfast" is bland, reheated precooked mass produced stuff. But if you stick to bananas, toast, milk, and coffee it's OK. Having a balcony to look out was very nice. Moonrise was beautiful on the calm lake. Bring a big fan,... More

We attended with a coach tour and they handled luggage in and out for us. Rooms were great and the beds were comfortable. One of my best sleep experiences. Breakfast was very good and handled our numbers nicely.

My daughter and I had a great time we enjoyed the beach, pool, hot tub and complementary breakfast. The staff was polite, prompt and accommodating. Our hotel room was very nice, had a lakefront view on the first level and not only did the door wall open to a nice patio with a table and two chairs but it also... More
