Turned the air conditioning unit on 15 minutes after running the smoke alarms went off as to the unit started smoking. We had our three year old... More

Where do I start? First everyone should be made aware that the same owner owns every hotel in that stretch! He could care less about the rooms or the quality. Because your stuck regardless! All his hotels are worn out and over priced. The rooms were nasty! The only plus was the manger at this location. I truly felt for... More

After reading many reviews online I expected this hotel to be much better than what it actually was. Our ground floor room smelled musty and damp, like there had been a water leak that hadn't quite been taken care of. The very aged hot tub (that I didn't know would even be in the room since no one mentioned it... More

We arrived with a reservation in place, no problem. But when I asked for the AAA discount I was told, "you're lucky to get the price you already have because walk-ins pay a lot more". While that may be true, her tone and attitude were snarky. And I wasn't a walk-in. She would not give us the discount. I had... More

Glad we chose this hotel. Were offered a super rate for a lakefront room. What a great view to wake up to each morning! At night it was nice to see the friends and families gather on the beach around the fire pits . Manager Brendon as well as the ladies at the front desk were wonderful in answering our... More

The Clarion was a pretty good hotel for the area and had a great location to the Mackinac Ferry which is just a short walk away. We were not at the hotel much but the beds were comfortable, location on beach was great, staff is friendly. Helpful Tip...If you are going to book a ferry ride the hotel can sell... More

Stayed with my wife and toddler. Hotel is dated and more cleaning needed done to the rooms (lot of dirt/dust under stuff). Breakfast is standard free breakfast, adequate though. Location is superb, especially if you book a beachside room. View is unbelievable! Everything in walking distance and boats to Mackinac Island are next door and you can buy tickets at... More

Stayed here for a trip to Mackinac Island; stayed in a first floor suite looking out on Lake Huron. Very disappointed in the quality of this hotel given the Clarion name and the price we paid. Carpet was dated and stained/dingy, and it clashed with the upholstered furniture. Wood furniture was dated and somewhat beat up. There were no privacy... More

Just a short walk across a parking lot to the dock for the ferry to Mackinac Island When we returned in the evening no need to drive or wait for a ride. The room was very clean and we had a nice breakfast in the morning....the breakfst... More
