My wife and I make an annual trip to Mackinaw to celebrate our anniversary. Normally we stay at the Best Western down the street and have never been dissappointed.
This year because of apparent renovations or just bad timing, our usual hotel was closed with a sign that directed us here. In fact I think nearly every hotel on the drag was closed with signs telling you to come here, as I recall.
The room we were given was very clean and top notch, and the staggering view of the lake from it or sitting on the small but adequate patio is a memory my wife and I will always savor.
I do believe the rooms are over priced, but for what we got with view and everything I can overlook that.
What I cant overlook is that after I paid for our room for our 3 day stay with a debit card, a mystery $55 charge was in the total that I did not discover until a few days later when I called my card to check the balance. Eventually this charge dissappeared and the money was back in my account, but as to whether it was some odd amount debit hold or something else....who knows.
Also was not impressed with staff, most of whom seemed either indifferent or annoyed. The woman who checked us in spoke such broken english she reminded me of the people I talk to when I call customer service for my credit cards. The housekeeper was very friendly.
Personally I dont foresee staying here again, but as Ive stated before, nice view.
