Americas Best Value Inn Mackinaw City
Ranked #27 of 40 Hotels in Mackinaw City
Reviewed August 6, 2008

The motel was clean and non smoking. It was a great value for Mackinaw City at less than $35.00 mid week and it included breakfast. The rooms are average, but the bathroom was small.

This is a very clean motel. The staff were very friendly and helpful with things to do in the city. The pool was clean and enjoyed by the kids. They serve a continental breakfast every morning and lots of choices. The breakfast area is open all day and that's where we ate other meals either grilled there or brought in. Other that an increase in rate on Friday night because of local attractions to$129 , the $69 was great. We definitely would stay there again..

We arrived late and asked how long the pool was open, the reseptionist said it was closed for matenence or something. With 3 children we had partially picked this hotel because it HAD a pool. She said we could go to a pool at a different pool the next day. But we didn't go to another hotel the next day. This was just the tip of the iceberg for our stay. The parking right in front of your room was very conventient. When we entered the room we found a few pieces of trail-mix scattered around. We went to the front office and were told we could borrow a vacuum. We went back to our room and the people in the room next to us had got a vacuum too. The towels were so small and thin you ended up with a wet rag after drying off. We had a room with 3 qween size beds and they gave us 4 towels ( if you could call them towels.)

Hotwire calls this a 2 Star hotel. It is not. It is a 1 star. As long as you understand that, you will be OK staying here. The reasons I believe it is not 2 star: No Internet access of any kind, bedding uses a flat sheet instead of a fitted sheet, mattress cover is made out of plastic, towels are undersized and thin, most TV channels are fuzzy.

This "motel" and it's management couldn't have been more unproffesional. The "owner" checked us in, I cannot even begin to describe how rude she was. We reserved a jacuzzi room, which they didn't have uppon arrival, we were stuck in a dark, dingy, musty-smelling room with no air conditioner on one of the hottest days of the summer, not to mention we had a 1 year old with us! When we complained of the air not working, the young receptionist went into the room and said, "it feels cool enough in here!!" And don't try to cancel your registration, they will charge you either way. We ended up moving to another hotel and still had to pay for the one here, but we couldn't imagine staying another minute in that dingy hole they called a hotel room. A word to the wise.....don't do your hotel shopping on-line!! The price may be tempting, but you really need to see this place in person. Very very low-end rooms.

We called this hotel & directly made a reservation for 3 nights. When we arrived the first day, they had no record of our reservation even though we had a reservation confirmation number. they had no vacancies & proceeded to shuffle our family of 6. the first night we stayed in 1 room, the 2nd night they split us up in 2 rooms on opposite ends of the property, the 3rd night they split us up into 3 rooms on different levels & ends of the property. we were very unhappy with this situation. we chose to vacation as a family, we didn't like being split up this way. the phones didn't work so we couldn't contact each other without walking out & knocking on doors. we had 3 children and a 78 yr old woman with us. this was not convenient. the air conditioning didn't work in one room-this is bad during 90* days, the bathtub didn't drain in one bathroom. to top it all off, when we got home & got our charge account bill, the hotel charged us for more than we were told. We contacted the hotel and they have not returned any of our phone calls. DO NOT STAY HERE NO MATTER HOW GOOD THE PRICE SEEMS--IT WAS NOT WORTH THE HASSLE.

We just returned from a stay at the America's Best Value and thought it was a great value for the money. The rooms are large and nicely decorated. There was also a small refridgerator and coffee maker in the room. It is not a luxury hotel, but certainly way above average for the money. The pool is large and great for the kids. The breakfast has the potential to be good, but on our stay they ran out of waffle mix and left many people without. I would definately stay at this hotel again.
