Bridge Vista Beach Hotel & Convention Center
Ranked #15 of 40 Hotels in Mackinaw City
Reviewed June 25, 2013

The hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and clean, although they truly need to hire someone to wash the windows, dead bugs, cobwebs all over them. My grand kids loved the water park. The water could be warmer, the entry way into the park needs some care. It was filthy and very gross to walk through. Then on our last night there the lifeguard opened all the windows, and the air coming in was cold, we were wet so it made us all cold so we left. It is suppose to be warm that is the idea so that we don't get cold and can enjoy ourselves. Another thing that bugged me was the junk and boxes piled all over the place behind the check in, the breakfast area had junk piled behind the bar, you could see in the door where they prepared the food had junk piled all over the place. It just wasn't a well put together hotel. They need to make the place look a little more presentable, although I would stay there again because for the most part our room was clean and comfortable and worth the money we paid for our stay.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor and had no issues with noise.

The Bridge Vista Beach Hotel & Convention Center is basically a glorified motel. There is a nice pool area, although calling it a water park is a bit of a stretch. No workout room - they said it was under construction. I was told I could use the workout room two doors down, but it had three cardio machines, nothing else. The hotel has beachfront, but the beach is not as nice as the Mackinaw City hotels toward downtown. The woman who took care of the free breakfast was fantastic - I've rarely seen someone work so hard while being accommodating, friendly and helpful. Bridge Vista, you should hold on to her!

Booked a room at this hotel for a work conference being held right on site. Went to check in and was told that we were going to be moved down to the Quality Inn-4 hotels down. No explanation or apologize. The facilities are less than ideal for a conference. Terrible restroom situation. One restroom in the lobby area and one right in the room where the conference was being held. Long lines and no hand towels. Hotel is outdated, worn and dirty. Very disappointed and would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The Quality Inn was also dirty, light bulbs out in bathroom, furniture was old and tub was dirty. Not a good experience in Mackinaw City.

This hotel is great for families. We had a very nice room facing Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, and the Mackinac Bridge at a very affordable rate. The hotel is kind of noisy due to all of the kids staying there because of the enclosed water park attached. There is no extra charge for using the water park. The place could use some updating, but it is a great value for families!

We booked this last minute, got a deal, and enjoyed our stay. King size bed, clean and large bathrooms, and friendly staff. We will stay here again if we can get this kind of a deal next time! The two ladies at the front desk (on June 15th, 2013) were very nice and talkative in the morning during checkout.

I had rented 3 rooms early for the Zoo-De-Mac ride and when we arrived none of the rooms were close to each other. I had a "Renovated" room and the other two were horrible. I had a 46" TV and they had much older 26" tv's and their rooms didn't even have an area to hang clothes. There was a phone in their rooms, with a phone line, BUT NO place to plug it in!!! They would not let anyone bring their bikes into their rooms because they had just spent a 1/4 Million Dollars on wallpaper and were informed if we did, they would fine us $250!! They should have spent it completing the renovations. The breakfast area is way to small to accommodate the guests and there are signs that you cannot take food back to your room! Are you supposed to sit on the floor. There were a lot people complaining that weekend and said they would not be back and neither will we or recommend it to anyone. Very biligerant people at the desk when trying to ask questions and very sarcastic with the answers. NOTHING is said on the website about not bringing your bike to your room or that pets are not allowed. Some of these bikes that weekend are worth more than used cars.
