We had such high hopes for our mini-vacation. This hotel had a great location. That was about it. The staff was not all that pleasant. The room was musty & the back sliding door lock was broken. The beach was not all that. For $179 a night one would expect a pretty decent room. And the "water parks" passes that it came with? What a joke. One was a glorified splash pad that wasn't even open. One had a couple of bigger slides & a big pool, but seeing the algae that was growing everywhere in there, we decided against it. The 3rd one had a decent play area for the kids & a nice big pool & hot tub which was clean. We spent a few hours there & enjoyed it. Oh- & how could I forget what sounded like oxen stomping around in the room above us until 2 am for two of the nights?!?!

All in all, we found the whole area to be quite boring. If you like fudge & shopping for touristy tchotchke, then this place is for you. The best part of our trip was playing mini golf. Both places were nice little courses & not very crowded. The other was a restaurant right in town called The Pancake Chef. Excellent buffet & great service. Our daughter loved it so much we went there 3 times! But I can't tell you enough how rude we found the majority of people to be in Mackinaw City & even more so on the island itself. It's like they are bothered by tourists. Hey a-holes: if it wasn't for tourists your stupid little place wouldn't exist!

My recommendation: find somewhere else to vacation- you'll be glad you did!

Online reservations were easy. The room was waiting for us when we got there. The view was great overlooking the beach. The room and bathroom were clean. The beds were a bit firm for my tastes, but not too bad. The air conditioning unit worked well but had an annoying rattle to it. The metal plate on tissue dispenser in the bathroom fell and landed on top of my girl's foot and she swore out loud from the sharp pain. Otherwise, it was generally pretty good place to stay. A little pricey, I thought, but that whole area seems to be "up" in their pricing during the summer months.

We recently stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The location was great as we were able to walk to downtown Mackinaw City and the Star Line ferry to Mackinaw Island was very close. We did not have a beachfront room but it was nice to have access to the beach. The room needs updating but seemed clean. The breakfast was so-so (for example, the orange juice seemed like it was made from something like Tang) but they did have a waffle maker. I would give the highest rating to the pool and hot tub area.

Stayed one night, got jacuzzi room, balcony view. Room was clean and nice size. No one else using the swimming pool, it was a nice value hotel, nice place to unwind after 2 days on island hiking the trails.
