I'm checking into Mackinac for a quick (three-night) family vacation. I stumbled across Mission Point Resort on the Mackinac Island official website, and the family package it offers looks pretty nice and the family hot tub suite comes at a good price. However, this resort ranks last for Mackinac, and the TA reviews are either very good or awful.
Is this just a case of low-end room-users expecting more than what they paid for, or does this resort just put a shine on a you-know-what? I know one of the main negatives is its distance from downtown, but are the rooms really that bad or are the facility's amenities poor?
If you have suggestions for better places, we're looking at a Monday-Thursday stay in mid-June with two kids, aged 5 and 3. We're not too particular, but we want good value for our money (we don't mind paying $300+ a night for the right package), a bit of room for all of us and either a good location in town or good dining in the hotel.
Thanks for any help you can give!
