“Great Place”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We only planned to stay one night, but we were so comfy we stayed for two. The room was very clean with a view that can't be beat! Continental breakfast had so many choices it was just as good as going to a restaurant. All the staff we encountered were super helpful and friendly, although Rosie the black lab was our favorite. Only suggestion to future guests is to bring some earplugs, walls are a little thin. We will absolutely return here!

You are so nice to write us this glowing review! While we certainly appreciate your kind words, your extended stay is the greatest compliment you could ever give us. We're thrilled you decided to stay a while longer and felt right at home with us. I think I can speak for our entire staff (Rosie included), when I say that it was our absolute pleasure to host you. We'll look forward to seeing you the next time you're in the area!

Take care,

I don't even know where to start everything about this hotel was excellent!! The view from our room was breathtaking and the room was very clean. The pool and two hot tubs were very clean and the temperatures just right! The bed was very comfortable and we had a sound sleep. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The free breakfast was very good and had a good variety ( cereal, waffles, toast, pastries, muffins,hard boiled eggs, sausage with biscuit and gravy along with coffee, juices and milk) something for everyone. We have found our perfect getaway place and will be coming back for yearly trips!

By far, one of the best rooms on my trip. This suite was shared with three other women. You can imagine all the "stuff" we were toting around. The suite was great. The first room was like walking into your own private living room with recliner chair, sofa, table and chairs and television. The walk through to the bedroom had a sink on one side, the large bathroom with additional sink on the other. All very clean and neat. The bedroom had another television as well as two queen sized beds and additional tables. All on a nice balcony overlooking lake Huron. The hotel is older but kept up. A few quirks but with one that is older, it's kind of expected. The pool was wonderful as well as two jacuzzis. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel and would definately stay there again.

I have come to rely on tripadvisor but was somewhat disappointed this time. Not a great deal for the price. The desk staff was so awesome - above friendly and helpful so i actually feel bad having to leave a less than good review. The view and grounds toward the lake were just beautiful! The breakfast staff needs some guidance. While they are in the room constantly to make sure things stay full the one lady just leans on the counter drinking her coffee and staring at the guests while they eat. Then more staff come in and they yell across the room to each other then stand around drinking coffee and talking. When leaving the breakfast area the prep room doors were open and these rooms were very dirty looking. The room seemed clean though the carpets were stained. Many stains in hallway carpets and also smelled musty in the hallways.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback. While I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the view and the grounds, I'm sorry that you weren't pleased with your experience during breakfast. We want breakfast to be a meal that relaxes and jump starts your day, not a meal where you feel any kind of discomfort. As for the room, did you by any chance mention this to our front desk staff? As you know, they would have been more than happy to transfer you to a room that was more to your liking. We aim to please as long as it is within reason! We appreciate your feedback and will be sure to pass it on to the appropriate staff. Next time, hopefully, you will give us the chance to impress you and earn the extra 3 points in your book!

We wanted to stay someplace not to pricey but nice! This hotel was perfect! The room was very comfy and the view from our room was amazing. The staff was very nice and helpful. The ferry to take to the island was just down the road. The casino shuttle picks you up and drops you off at the hotel. Very quick drive. I would stay at this hotel again.

Spent Friday Sept 20, 2013 thru Sept 23, 2013 here with my husband, daughter, and son-in-law. While an older hotel it was comfortable and exceptionally clean. We checked in late our first night and the gentleman we dealt with at the front desk was wonderful. Not only was he nice, but he also told us about a $10 Mackinac Money Bag with coupons in it. We were able to save on the price of tickets to Mackinac Island with a buy one get one free coupon. We also got a great deal on our lunch on Sunday afternoon. The only thing that I would update is the breakfast buffet. Mostly breads, cereal, muffins, hardboiled eggs, and sausage biscuits and gravy. Maybe update the continental breakfast a little. Best part - the wonderful view of Mackinac Island and the sunrise in the morning.

Room Tip: When making reservations at this motel ask to be placed in the NEW portion of the hotel. More updat...
