This hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. My father and I had bought our ferry tickets through the hotel and we got there early in the morning and we had no trouble receiving our tickets even though it was too early to check in. The rooms were clean and spacious as well. Breakfast was ready promptly... More

Nice hotel- pleasant staff, very similar to Holiday Inn Express brand which is why we like staying in this chain (they are usually consistent). My only complaint would be the shower tile in the bathroom needed grouting and updating. Otherwise it was clean and comfortable.

Ironworker's Festival is very close to this hotel, as well as the main drag for shopping! Restaurants abound with everything from hotdogs to steaks, fudge and ice-cream (yum)... Not too far from the border, one of the best we've stayed in.

Thank Patricia K
Management response:

Hot Dogs, Steak, fudge and ice cream...you nailed it! That sounds like a wonderful meal. And close to all the attractions...even the Canadian Boarder. So many people forget we are just 57 miles south of the Soo. Bring your Passports...and enjoy Northern Michigan. Thank you for that awesome review...and we look forward to your next visit.

Heading for Mackinac Island, we wanted to catch an early ferry to the island and decided to spend a night in Mackinaw City beforehand. Holiday Inn Express : AWESOME! Beds and pillows were as comfortable as any I have experienced. Breakfast was satisfying, staff was helpful and friendly and location was perfect!

We stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Express Mackinaw City. Courteous staff at check in. Room was a decent size for the two of us. Good breakfast in the morning, stocked well. A couple things were not great. Mattresses were soft so sleep was not as good as would have liked. The sound barriers in the walls seemed lacking... More

Comfortable, clean and convenient. Stayed August 10th and 11th in room 307. Balcony overlooked parking lot even though I had requested the view on the other side of the building. Only real issue I had was a damp musty smell in the hallway and in our room. I didn't request a relocation, but should have. Not close to downtown, but... More

We had just stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Munising and had a great experience so I was hoping for a similar experience here. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. We were in room 112 and while the room was a decent size it had a HORRIBLE smell. It smelled damp, moldy, and smoky. Every time we walked into the... More

As usual this Holiday Inn Express was high quality and very convenient to shopping, dining and ferries to Mackinac Island. Courteous staff and very comfortable. Busy front desk but clerk did a great job expediting check in.

Be careful... They will put a hold on your card the morning before you arrive. They did not tell me they had already put a hold on the card so I paid cash. My vacation had to be shortened because I had less money to spend during the vacation. When I tried to speak to the manager I got a... More

Stayed here for one night in August on a lower level floor. Room was very spacious, more than usual, possibly due to being a corner room. Next to bridge, so heard lots of night traffic, but wasn't too bothersome. Room was clean and the kids enjoyed the pool/spa/sauna. You could walk to downtown, but it would be quite a walk,... More
