1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were on our return from a 16 day cross-country trip and were looking forward to two days of relaxation "on a beach" before we went home. From our arrival to check out, this was anything but relaxing. One woman was doing all the work at the front desk while two others stood around looking clueless. One of the two... More

Horribly unimpressed and disappointed. We booked this in January, and we just arrived for a three night stay. The room is incredibly old and outdated and is dirty. It is also cramped. They stuck us in a corner with a very small balcony that partially overlooks a parking lot. I called on two separate occasions over the last few months... More

The hotel is located right on the beach with a swimming pool and free access to two waterparks. This should have made the trip perfect, however, the service was very poor and we had several areas of concern. We had three young grandchildren with us and booked a suite with a king bed and two queen beds. The room is... More

Cannot beat the location. Stayed in a room with private balcony overlooking the lake. Awesome view. Lake has a sandy bottom off the beach so it is perfect for swimming with the kids. Rooms are outdated but fine. Swimming pool is very nice. Walking distance to lots of shops. Convenient to multiple ferries.

We stayed at this hotel as a family of 6. I was able to book a suite with 1 king bed and 2 queens. The room only had 1 bathroom with 6 people that is a little lacking. The tub had a soft spot in the middle of it that I was afraid to step on and it took my... More

So nice to find a suite with a king and two queens. Super nice for family of 5. Little older, but layout is very nice, especially the way the bath has doors from each room to access it. Breakfast just OK, but the room was well worth the price!

The beach side room had a nice view. The room was outdated and not very clean for the price we payed. We had a suite. The sofa sleeper was old and there wasn't much room to open it up into a bed. We had to be creative. The breakfast area was not clean and we did not see anyone cleaning... More

The room was clean and comfortable. The beds were comfy with 4 pillows on each bed and nice sheets and blankets. Bathroom, although not super modern, was very clean and provided thick terry towels. Nice big flat screen tv. Beach was okay with chairs and a fire ring. The small water area leading to the beach area is nothing more... More

We stayed here for 5 days and had a good stay. It not the Grand Hotel or a five star in a major city but it can be a clean place to lay your head. If you have a problem with the room, contact the front desk, they will help you out. The staff works hard cleanning and changing the... More

Like many other reviewers, we stayed here to go to Mackinac Island. I'm writing this at 5:45 a.m. watching the sunrise over the lovely beach area (which is the only positive thing I can say about the Clarion) because I could not sleep between the uncomfortable bed, the stink and the overall feeling that the room is filthy...not to mention...
