We stayed at this hotel for the second time this past summer. (August, 2012) Both times we've stayed here have been very pleasant. The hotel has free parking, free breakfast, and guests have access to 3 different indoor water parks, which my kids really enjoyed. Check in was quick and easy. We were given discounts to local restaurants and activities. The staff was not overly friendly, but they were polite and answered any questions I had. The rooms were clean and spacious.
We booked a room with a balcony view of the beach, and it was well worth the small price increase. The kids loved going down to the beach and playing in the water. At night, there was a group of hotel guests out on the beach making good use of the bonfire pits. Our room had two beds and a sofa sleeper which worked well for our family of two adults and four kids.
The pool is indoors and just very basic. The kids used it one night for a few minutes, but really preferred to be in the water park or down at the beach. There is a free breakfast. It's basic hotel food, but it's free and is a nice way to start the day, as well as a decent savings for large families.
I would recommend this hotel to those staying in the Mackinaw area, and we will definitely be back the next time we are in town. Thanks for another great stay!
