Very enjoyable location on the water. The views from the room were fantastic. Beautiful facility. The breakfast room & recreational facilities were extensive and well maintained. Great things to do in the area.

We stayed at this hotel and we were very happy with our choice. I had looked at several reviews for different hotels and also for this one in Mackinaw city. I wasn't sure which one to choose as I saw good and bad reviews for all of them. I am glad we chose this hotel though. It was clean and had reasonable rates. I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We had a king size bed with a jacuzzi, court side.

Stayed here in the off-season of October and two of the three nights were packed but you’d never know it due to how quiet it was. When we were in our room it was like we were the only guests - we were on the 4th floor. The rooms and the the hotel in general was well kept and clean. The view of the lake from the balcony was beautiful although the balconies on the 4th floor are smaller than the other floors. The breakfast area had plenty of room and good choices. We had to walk outside to get to the pool (inside) and it was pretty brisk (since it was Oct) but not a problem, and in the summer there certainly wouldn’t be an issue. Pool area extremely clean. The heater was great in the room except for some clicking noises and loud noises when it cycled during the night - however, I don’t know too many hotels I’ve stayed at where the air conditioner/heater didn’t have this kind of issue.

I have stayed here a few times and it is always good in comparision to the others. Lets face it, there are no "high end" hotels on the strip, however this place is clean, friendly, and a great location. I always stay by the water and the suites are nice. The only thing I wish was better, are the balconies......they are far too small. Other then that, a good stay.

Arrived late in the evening with little info on how to get to Mackinac Island. The hotel staff was welcoming and informative. Upgraded us to a lake side room with direct access to the beach. Breakfast buffet was excellent. They offered ferry boat information for transport over to the island. Suggested we leave our vehicle in their lot while we visited Mackinac Island. Would recommend future travelers stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for ground level room, they have direct access to lakeside beach.

Very good, I would stay there again. Although I would check the bed earlier, as I found hairs in the bed, including pubic hairs. The pool area was very nice and the view would have been amazing had it not been for the non-stop rain. The room was beautiful.
