We stayed on Sunday night, easy checking in. Staff was super friendly explaining our room keys got us a discount at a few of the local restaurants. Even signing a waiver the kids could visit the other local hotels that had a water park attached.

We had 8 ppl in our party, 6 adults and 2 children. We had 2 rooms, one was on the ground floor, the other was on the 2nd floor, across the parking lot from one another. The 2nd room was better than 1st room.

Read that this hotel had a nice beachfront location so decided to try it. Was a really good choice. The room was on the 4th floor overlooking the lake. The room was very clean with a couch, desk, 2 queen beds, refrigerator, flat screen tv, and separate bat room. The beach directly below was clean and guests were lounging in... More

This hotel's amenities are wonderful! Our room 147 was located right across from the immaculately kept indoor heated pool. Just steps away from a an absolutely beautiful beach. The beach was raked each morning. The water was crystal clear. The free breakfast was fine. Something for everyone to eat. The views from this hotel were spectacular. Mackinaw Island and the...

We stayed for two nights on vacation with our older kids. The property looked nice on the outside and the lobby was nice. The rooms were, well, a hint of 1990's motif meets Winnebago. The beds were okay, the pillows weren't something I could sleep on (which I bring my own anyway). The Breakfast room was a mixed bag. They... More

Ok. So to be fair, rooms in Mackinaw City are expensive. These hotels get very little business in the winter so they overcharge in the peak months. You will pay anywhere. That being said, I paid almost $500 for 2 nights (Saturday and Sunday). Check in was simple. We got a courtside room, that means you are looking at the... More

Wow.... This place is terrible. Checking in there was 1 female upfront working on a Friday. Nice front desk girl with great customer service, but one front desk person is not enough. The room we got was a suite, lakefront second floor. The carpeted floor throughout the whole hotel room was so filthy, we all had to scrub our feet... More

This place is a joke! Save your $$$ and check out the other options down the road. The room was EXTREMELY dirty and the fragrance they sprayed in the room gave me a migraine. Cobwebs everywhere, dirty carpet, holes in the walls. DATED!! from my grandma's attic. Would not recommend to my worst enemy.

This was my third time staying at this hotel. The last time was about 8 years ago. It is definitely not what it used to be! I was highly disappointed. Everything from the staff to the cleanliness has gone downhill. We stayed two nights and our room key didn't work most of our visit. The girl blamed me the first... More

I officially had the absolute worst hotel experience of my life at the Clarion in Mackinaw City (after 50 years of vacationing 2-3 times per year). We checked into the filthiest room that I have ever seen on a Tuesday. In addition, the common areas of the establishment were filthy, garbage-ridden and completely run down. Excited to be on vacation... More
