Spent one night here on our way up to Escanaba. Stayed in the Queen Jacuzzi room. Clean, but the hotel is much older than what the pictures on TA would lead you to believe. Pool/hot tub area could really use updating. Decent continental breakfast and cheap rate when booked with Expedia. Also, walking distance to the Key Hole Bar!

Great location for doing stuff in both Mackinaw City, (0.3 miles from town), and St. Ignace as it is right by the ramp to get on I-75. Very clean. Very accommodating staff. Quiet time is 10pm -8am, so it also accommodates you early to bedders and us late to risers. AND the pool is open until 11pm.

Surprisingly quiet since you are right next to the bridge, staff was nice and helpful, breakfast was bottom of the barrel as far as continental breakfasts go. Rate was decent for the stay. Parking lot was very tiny glad we did not take a bigger vehicle, anyone with a trailer would have had serious problems.

Good location; right next to the bridge. Clean. Quiet. Good breakfast. Friendly helpful staff. One of the few national brands in Mackinaw City. You know what your going to get here. We stayed on a Wednesday night in December on our way to the UP. Paid $76 before taxes (AAA rate).

If you are going or coming from the UP in the winter and need a stop this place is perfect right by the bridge.

We stayed there toward the middle of October, well past the peak season. Color tours were going strong but overall there were plenty of rooms available around the area. The room we had was okay, nothing special, the breakfast was okay, nothing special. What I'm not so happy about was the price. It was pretty steep all things considered and... More
