My husband and I spent 2 nights at Kewadin and it was nice and comfortable. The room was a fairly good size, small patio outside our door, plasma tv and coffee maker. The weather was beautiful while we were there, really enjoyed sitting on the patio with a cup of coffee.
The beds were comfortable, bathroom was huge. Housekeeping did a terrifc job, only one tiny spot on the carpeting.
The reason I'm giving this this rating is the pillows were really sad and pathetic, they could have had higher watt bulbs in the lamps, lighting was awful and the alarm clock was very small and I couldn't read it without having my glasses on.
The slot machines were tight, they need to get rid of so many of the older machines. Lots of problems with machines not taking money, not taking my players card and printing out the cash out vouchers.
But the bottom line is we will go back and stay again.

Rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. We had a room with a lake view, very nice. Staff is friendly and helpful. By booking this early, we got a very reasonable rate considering it was the peak season for that area.

We used the buffet for breakfast one day and thought it was pretty good, so we went back for dinner and it was not good at all.

In July, we stayed in room 314 and had the same issues as Ed W regarding the same sort of insect nest on the balcony, drawers that were hard to open, and a filthy balcony (and the balcony view of the bay is why I come and where I relax). If he stayed in the same room, it's a shame that those issues were not corrected between his visit and our visit. We told the staff and figured that it would be corrected, if not while we were there, then soon after.

Housekeeping has always been great but maintenance seems to be a bit out of tune with the condition of the rooms. Not dirty - just rather worn carpeting.

The casino is always clean and lively. Nice to have free coffee and soda, as well as clean restrooms. Good place to lose money (lol)

The food service seems to have taken a step down in some rather odd ways. The lettuce and tomatoes in the salad bar were ridiculously huge - as if someone just didn't take the time to cut them up. Seriously, it looked like the tomatoes were quartered and the lettuce heads cut into eighths. The ice cream machine was down and then gone. And the buffet wasn't appetizing enough for the $14.99 person. We used to eat all our meals at the Horseshoe Bay Restaurant. Aside from breakfast, we are now eating in town more often.

These are not huge issues. In fact, they seem small enough to us that they could be corrected rather easily and quickly.

We returned a few weeks ago. Different room, no balcony, and no fridge. I just let it go. Simply wasn't a big enough deal. I mention it because it seems to also be happening to others.

We're going to try a different hotel in St. Ignace in September and see how it goes. Kewadin is just so convenient that I wish we didn't have a reason to look elsewhere. We have reservations in October and November. We're hoping for a better experience.

Room Tip: You can evidently request a view of the bay but not a balcony. That disappoints me but the alternative is to look out into the parking lot. Not the view of the UP I want

We stayed here for 2 nights mid-August and found the hotel to be very nice. It does show some wear here and there, but overall was clean and everything was functional. The staff was friendly, especially the restaurant staff (Mary?), who went above and beyond for my daughters birthday. They gave her a mini cake as well and joined in singing Happy B-day with a senior citizen tour group. It made my daughter feel special. Thanks again. Overall, I would stay here again no questions asked. I do wish the slots were a little looser next time......
One tip...the restaurant closed at 9pm and as we are late eaters had to use the Deli, which worried me at first, but the food from there was excellent as well and selection was decent.

Not hungry enough for the buffet, so we tried the deli for the first time, and we were not disappointed. Many choices at good prices. Wife had the Beef stew which was excellent, I had chili cheese fries, which is a meal in itself. Good job, deli. We will definitely try you again.
