We were going to Mackinac Island for our daughter's wedding and needed a place on the mainland to gather family members before heading over. We chose the Clarion due to its convenient location, and its modest price. We had a block of rooms; while ours was very nice, two of the others had issues with dirty/insufficient number of towels and... More

Fantastic hotel!!!! Rooms are very spacious, clean and modern. We stayed for the recent Parade of Lights across the Mighty Mac. THE perfect location to see each of the trucks. Staff was very pleasant and our group really enjoyed our time spent here.

The view from our room was AMAZING! The bridge from one window and Lake Huron and the Island from the other. Beautiful! The room exceeded our expectations. The staff was courteous and accommodating. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Before my wife passed we stayed at the Clarion for years, prior to our trips to the Island. On this bittersweet trip, involving a memorial gathering to honor her, I was reminded how great the Clarion is. The staff was totally professional, and the amenities were greatly appreciated. I'm sure I'll be back in the future.

We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel. Very quiet on the beach, nice pool, nice jacuzzi. And a decent price definitely on our list for return visit. The beds were very comfortable & bathroom clean. Would stay here again.

A very nice location on the lake, nice appearing hotel, but lacking most amenities. Wifi was spotty at best, even though there are multiple routers. Breakfast was basic, coffee was industrial grade, fresh fruit was minimal. The clerks were helpful and efficient. For such a nice area, it begs to be just a bit better inside.

We had car trouble and needed to stay another night in Mackinaw City. The hotel we were staying at was full so we called the Clarion. We got a fantastic rate and were then upgraded to a lakefront suite. They also let us check in early. WOW..great customer service. We were on the 3rd floor with fantastic views of lake... More

This is a older hotel. Needs some maintenance but our room was big, clean and nicely furnished with hot tub. We had the parking lot view. There was an annoying fan running on the roof during the night. The breakfast was more than I expected. It included, scrambled eggs, sausage, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, 3 hot waffles makers, pastries, fruit,... More

We booked this hotel online through a company that is claiming they are the Mackinaw City Chamber of Tourism BUT what they really are is a PRIVATE COMPANY (hence the .com web address) that owns all these hotels on the strip called Mackinaw City which is a ferry ride across from the REAL Mackinac Island. ONE MAN OWNS ALL OF... More
