“comfortable and a good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2005

Our family stayed here one night while visiting Mackinac Island. Nothing was fancy, but we were pleased with the hotel overall. The room was clean and roomy. The included breakfast was nice and convenient. One complaint was the pool is in a separate building not connected to the hotel and it was not very big or appealing. The front desk personnel were helpful.

My wife and I stayed at this property for two nights over Memorial Day weekend. We enjoyed our stay. The Mackinaw City Hampton Inn is not the Grand Hotel, but it's not supposed to be. It's a Hilton-brand budget hotel. I believe we got good value for the money. The room was clean and quiet, the staff friendly and helpful. The hotel is right across the street from two Mackinaw Island ferry terminals, and within easy walking distance of the "bright lights" of Central Avenue. Free wireless high-speed internet in the room worked flawlessly. If I had to complain about something, and it's not really a complaint as much as an observation , it's that the lobby breakfast area can fill up quickly (depending upon guest loading). But if you get down there early, you won't have a problem. Stay here and you will have a pleasant visit.

Our stay at this Hampton Inn was very disappointing. After checking into our room, we noticed a lot of crud on the carpet and questioned the cleanliness of the bedsheets. Although we were given another room, we had problems with being able to get hot water out of the sink and shower. The toilet handle broke and the light above the bathroom sink was burned out. The guests above our room were noisy late into the night. Plus, the security feature on the rear entry door was broke allowing anyone to enter the facility. Overall, we did not like this hotel and will not go back.

Excellent location at this Hampton - we were in the center of everything. Walked across the street after breakfast in the morning to catch the ferry to the island, came back and relaxed in a room before walking around and doing some shopping. What a pleasure to leave the car parked and just be able to walk to everywhere you want to go. We're loyal Hampton Inn patrons and this hotel is one of the reasons why - Very clean, excellent location and great staff! I'd definitely recommend it.

We love the HAMPTON. Accidentally stayed at the HAMILTON in 2002. What a mistake! The service was terrible. Make sure you book at the right hotel, as the names are so similar.

Great Location and Fantastic Service - The staff were incredibly outgoing and friendly and you could literally walk across the street to catch a ferry to Mackinac Island or walk to the downtown shops. We couldn't have been happier.

We highly recommend this hotel! We stayed last year and had such a fantastic time (great staff, great rooms) that we're bringing friends up this year. Their May rates were very good, and they also have some fantastic midweek deals (we made our reservation at ----). Looking forward to another fun getaway.
