“Bathrooms were filthy, mold on the ceiling tiles and shower...”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Bathrooms were filthy, mold on the ceiling tiles and shower curtain. Tub no stick strips were coming up, the shower head was not even attached to the wall and the water took forever to get hot. Continental breakfast was poor. Front desk staff did not speak English clearly.

We visited the Days Inn Lakeview during the week in August. After checking on several hotels and prices we figured we were paying for the location (Lakeview). The room was small, dark and very dated. On the surface it appeared clean, but when you started to look a little closer there was dust around the t.v. cabinet and on the mirrors. There was also dirt in the corners of the bathroom floor and the grout of the floor was dirty. The "full breakfast buffet" advertised on the internet was the standard eggs, biscuits and gravy, cereal and toast that all of the hotels offer. The dinning area was decent sized and clean. The pool was large, but quite cold. The hot tub was warm but the jets weren't the greatest and it was quite clouded. There was no lake access and when other guests asked about fire pits the staff recommended they use the ones at the Clarion or another local hotel. Really? It's location was right next door to one of the Mackinac Island shuttles, which was convenient and about .6 miles from the downtown area so we could walk rather than drive and park. They advertised free wifi, but we were never able to access it. Overall, we will look elsewhere for our next hotel. There must be a nicer room for the price we paid.

I called ahead and questioned the reviews, wanted to make sure it would be clean, that there was a beach and that it was actually a lake view. So I was told yes on everything and she actually took my name to make sure I was taken care of. So yes we had a beautiful view and a very big room. BUT it was not clean, spiders all over the bathroom, webs and dirt in the corners and the windows were just gross. The windows would not stay open. The TV remote did not work, was just the batteries but I don't think that should happen, something that should be checked when the room is cleaned and checked. Then on our third day the refrigerator stopped working and I didn't realize it so we lost our food, and our freezer packs were not frozen for our trip back home. Also there is NO INTERNET IN THE ROOMS, internet is only in the very small uncomfortable lobby!!! Here is the worst part...I checked out and needed to check some accounts online so I sat and used my laptop. As I am sitting there two older ladies and a small child walk in, so one lady says they are checking in but was wondering why they took the money out of her account already. The desk clerk says they did not (mind you they don't check anything) so a back and forth continues as the lady insists the money came out of her account, meanwhile the MANAGER walks in and hears this and tells the lady, they don't runt the card until you check out and the lady begins to speak and the manager says "you can find another hotel to stay in" my mouth literally dropped open, I could not believe it! after the ladies and small child leave the manager just keeps going on about it and saying not today, not dealing with it today. All the while I was sitting there in plain view as was another guest. TERRIBLE TERRIBLE service and management. Will NEVER stay there again!!

When we arrived at the room the smell of furniture polish was overwhelming, as if they were trying to cover up another smell. Housekeeping had only left 1 bath towel in the bathroom, therefore I had to go to the front desk for additional bath towels, hand towels and wash rags. There was a coffee pot in the room that appeared to be purchased at a garage sale. Too bad there was no coffee/creamer/sugar in the room. When I went to the front desk to get coffee, I was given coffee, but no creamer or sugar.The toilet seat was falling off of the toilet. The baseboard trim in the bathroom was unfinished and untrimmed. The caulk around the bathtub had black mold everywhere. This is definitely the worst room that my wife and I have ever rented. To top it off we had to pay a premium price so this sub par room. We will never book a room at a Days Inn in the future. It was a terrible start to our vacation.

This hotel is very close to all of the ferries, and right on the water, But the facilities are very old and in need of updating badly. Breakfast was horrible, no beach or leveraging of Lakefront, it's a parking lot. The pool is decent, but not connected to any of the buildings yet still indoors. Price is very reasonable for what you get, And they include access to other hotels indoor waterpark's
