“have returned every summer & fall since 2009 opening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2011

This Aug & Oct (2011) marks our 3 year in a row return to the MBB. They opened in 2009, and we've returned there twice each year to vacation in Mackinaw City. Being only 3 yrs old, everything is new and upto date.
Every room is lake front - (4 stories tall); is a suite; has 2 bd rm's - 1 king, the other queen; has 2 TV's; private balcony; kitchenette w/sink - microwave - fridg - coffee maker; has sofa sleeper.
I especially like the A/C & Heating system - it's Geo Thermo, meaning it's like Central Air. Has a wall mounted thermostat (like at home), and "does not" have those loud noisy wall / window mounted A/C Units...typical in Holels / Motels. Best word to describe it is, it's...QUIT.
Geo Thermo also means their Hot Water is instant...turn on the faucet's, and hot water is there. All there staff people are kind / polite & friendly. We absolutely enjoyed every stay there, and will make reservations again for the 2012 season.

I stayed here October 2011 for 5 days and Loved it! The whole facility was always clean, after my room was cleaned I was welcomed back to it by cute towel sculptures! The staff are all pleasant and respond with great customer service! Renee from Wisconsin

Room Tip: All the rooms have a wonderful view of the Bridge!

My wife and I stay at Mackinaw Beach and Bay every time we visit Mackinaw City. This hotel is clean, quiet, and has comfortable beds. The view is great, and the breakfast is better than most. We paid $59 on a Sunday.

Room Tip: all rooms are suites and have a lake view

A friend and myself stayed here for 4 night (end of September into the first of October). We had a handicap accessible room and it was easy to get around in. The views from the window and balcany were great. The beds were seperated by the bathroom and a conveniece center with a small refrigerator, microwave and coffe pot. The room was clean and neat. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was convenient and you did not have to walk far to get to it. I served and meet our needs very well. Would stay again.

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor. It was quiet with little outside noise. The views were great.

We have been visiting Mackinaw City for the past 40 years. We are so happy we found Mackinaw Beach and Bay. Not only are the rooms beautiful and the staff great, but it is a pleasure to wake up to beautiful sunrises every morning and watching freighters travelling down Lake Huron at night.
Why anyone would even think of staying in another property in Mackinaw is beyond us!!!!

We stayed at this hotel for a night based on Trip Advisor reviews. The hotel was fine, after the rave reviews, i was expecting a bit more. We asked for a room on an upper level and ended up on the ground level. This was a bit disconcerting because the door right by our bed opened up right on the beach- although our room was LITERALLY right on the beach which I could see as an advantage during the peak season. The TVs were tiny, the walls were concrete, the couch was uncomfortable, there was a hole in the ceiling over the shower where tissue had been stuffed into it instead of patching it, there was a tip envelop asking for a tip for the maid, and breakfast was disgusting.

Had we happened upon this place, we would probably say it was an ok place to lay our heads or a great place to bring a family because kids could come and go to the beach straight out of the room. Unfortunately, we came with an expectation and left with an "ho hum" feeling.

This was our 2nd time to stay at the Mackinaw Beach and Bay Inn, it was just as nice as the first time we were there.The staff was very helpful, the free Hot Breakfast Bar was very good. Plan on going back next year. The price is
very reasonable. The private balcony faced Lake Huron, and Mackinaw Island.
