Have to praise Chrisandra at the front desk. She was incredibly friendly, helpful, buoyant, and informative (and she seemed to be always on duty!). The hotel was fine, a little ways down the road from most of the activities of the town.

So we made a reservation through Expedia for Friday 10/14/16. Had a slight problem at check in - the girl told us that our reservation could not be found. After giving her our confirmation and her talking directly to Expedia - she seemed to find it and checked us in. The Hotel is in great walking distance to everything. The... More

I booked this trip literally hours before leaving. The price was so cheap that I was expecting a somewhat questionable facility. However, to our surprise, the hotel was AMAZING! Very clean, very friendly staff. amazing breakfast that spans beyond the usual donuts and bagels other hotels offer, and best of all, THE WATER PARK WAS PERFECT!!! Not too crowded, activities...

Our room was pretty run down, the walls were paper thin, the wifi doesn't work at all, and our room wasn't as clean as I had hoped it would be, BUT it's really close to everything and pretty cheaply priced. You definitely get what you pay for. We heard every person that walked up and down our hallway. When the... More

We stayed here during a recent trip to Mackinac Island. The hotel was clean and provided a hot breakfast that consisted of eggs, sausage, hot gravy. along with waffles, Considering the free price we both found it OK. Our bed was not the most comfortable we have slept in, but we have certainly slept on worse. Front desk staff were... More

I am surprised to see all the negative reviews because this hotel is a little bit older (as most hotels in Mackinaw are). However, it is quaint & cozy, but most importantly clean. The staff were exceptionally friendly and It is located in a great area (lots to do in Mackinaw City). I would ignore all the previous negative reviews.... More

This was our one mistake on our road trip through this beautiful area. We did not realize how easy the Mackinaw area would be to navigate and snapped at what looked to be the only sure option. So wrong - there were so many better options advertising availability and at a much lower price even as we went through the... More

We checked in our hotel and the front desk failed to mention we could use 3 waterparks in Mackinaw City and she also failed to explain the rules of using the waterparks and the fact that we needed a separate signed waiver from each waterpark. The description on the website said there was sandy beach access, but it failed to... More

The hotel overall was ok. Extremely loud!! People constantly slamming their doors and stomping above you. It's like there isn't even a door there. You can hear everything. Lots of drunk people come in and are loud. Do not stay here!! Loud!!!
