“Good basic hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

This was the top rated property for Mackinaw City. I'm usually a HHonors person, but they don't have any properties in town.

The property is very easy to find, and has a good location, easy to walk to the water if you want, and to many restaurants and shops. But then again, everything in Mackinaw City is pretty walkable.

At first glance it reminded me of a Hampton Inn. Similar registration, breakfast area, elevator, hallways, rooms. Was given the room I reserved, 2 queens, which had plenty of space to spread out. The closet was open (no doors), the sink was outside of the bathroom (a plus for me), and there was a window that actually opens. TV was nice and had so many channels to watch.

Stayed there over a Fri-Sun. Went to breakfast around 8am on Sat morning, huge mistake. It was a major mess. Kids screaming and running all over, one group sitting at one of the few tables and playing cards, food running low/out (there was someone who was trying to add more), and people just everywhere. When I was putting some food on my plate, I stepped back and nearly stepped right on someone. It was decent, I managed to get some hard boiled eggs and toast. But it was bad enough that on Sunday I just ate a protein bar and some donuts in the room before we headed out.

I took a look at the pool and workout area, seemed decent, but didn't go in.

The front desk does sell ferry tickets, and we bought them there (same price as online) as well as tickets for Fort Michillmackinac (definitely worth checking out), and they were genuinely very friendly and helpful.

I don't remember noise being an issue, but I guess it could be when the property is full. I'd guess it was 70-80% when I was there (June 14-16).

Parking was plentiful, especially if you were willing to use the rear door, which I'd recommend. There was laundry and ice, I think on the 2nd floor.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor looking into the back. Not sure if there are any bad rooms here.

Glad you enjoyed your stay for the most part. I recently experienced a similar experience at a Hampton in a similar resort community. Breakfast with all of the families in the breakfast area can be a real challenge. I found that going earlier the second morning worked but I do understand. Thanks

Went totally by Trip Advisor recommendation as to where to stay in Mackinaw- very glad I did.Very clean.Nice pool and hot tub.Continental breakfast had lots on it and was attended by two people- when the waffle machine had a backup of customers one of the attendants started taking numbers to make more waffles in the back room- efficient.Only $10 more to have a couch that made into a bed- same price as the rollaway and the room was a bit bigger.They allowed us to leave our car in their parking lot while we overnighted on the Island and an efficient shuttle from the ferry boat picked us up at the door of the hotel.Discounted tickets to boot.All in all a pleasant experience.Price was a bit more than I like to pay but in line with a resort area.

Traveled on a bus with a group to this area. Management was there to welcome us, see that everything was ok. He went above and beyond when he tried to help facilitate a way for us to get to an area attraction. I would stay here again in a minute as he bent over backwards to provide good service. Breakfast staff was also friendly. Pool was fun as well as warm! Room was clean and comfortable. What more can you ask for ?!

Just got back from a weekend getaway at this hotel. We have nothing but good things to say about our stay here. Our room was clean which is important to us when choosing a place to stay. The staff was great from checking in until checking out. Its in a great location and a short walk to Mackinaw crossings. Breakfast was your typical hotel breakfast..cereal, yogurt, fruit, bagels, waffles, pancakes, juice, milk. It was perfect for us! There was always someone in there cleaning it up & restocking as needed also. The pool & hot tub were both nice. We have stayed at other hotels in Mackinaw in the past & this one is 5 stars! Overall it was a great stay & we will return to this same hotel in the future.

My husband & I chose this hotel for our 3-night Mackinaw/U.P. vacation based on its TA rating....what a wonderful place!! We couldn't have been happier with the Baymont. The staff were so very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast each morning was always delicious and filling, a good way to fuel up for a long day of sight seeing. The room was spotless each day; the bed - lemme tell ya. I slept like the dead each night on a comfy bed and plenty of pillows. We even had a whirlpool in our king room (at no additional price, compliments of the front desk...although I believe that was due to a lack of regular king rooms when I booked our stay, but hey). The location of the Baymont is also ideal: walk across a couple very small parking lots, and you're right at the edge of Mackinaw Crossings with all the shops, food, live entertainment, and so forth. Another couple blocks, and you're at the water! If we ever make it back to Mackinaw City, this will definitely be our "base camp" for days of walking, shopping, eating, and enjoying the area.

Room Tip: We had room #130. Great because it was at the end of the 1st floor hallway, about as far from the ve...

A good place to stop on a long roadtrip. Everything was tip-top. The location took a little navigating to get to, but the result was rewarding. We were near the waterfront, which had shops, restaurants, live entertainment and an air of good times.
