Not up to Holiday Inn Standards

We secured this room based on location [near Mackinaw Island] and the Holiday Inn name. It was clearly overpriced [due to the July 4th weekend] but we decided to give it a go. Bad life decision. This was a property Holiday Inn purchased and tried to makeover unsuccessfully. Our room was on the first floor across from the breakfast area so it was uncomfortably loud and when the guests in the room above us moved, the ceiling creaked. Tough to get adequate rest and an overall challenging stay.

Pit stop for a Boyne Trip

Could not ask for a better place for an overnighter to get some time in on the slopes. Right off the freeway, close to local food, and stores, and only about a 20 minute drive to Boyne. Only comment about the 2 score of room comfort, it was about -17 degrees outside, and about 85 degrees in the room. The heat would not keep a normal comfortable temperature, we wound up shutting it off so we could actually sleep. Otherwise, the room was nice, beds were comfortable, and free continental breakfast was ok.

Comfortable room

For my 1 night stay, room was ready when I arrived, staff was friendly and you can't beat the location for breaking up that drive to the UP. Room had everything I needed for a good night sleep and a hot shower in the morning to get back on the road. I would use this hotel again.

cover up

The first thing I noticed was the heavy use of deodorizers. The chemicals covered a smell that became evident as the stay weared on. I asked for a little extra time to check out, not an unusual request. The desk person guilt-ed me into checking out on time with statements like "it's a little late to be telling me that now" and "I'll have to search for a housekeeper to let her know if that's your intent" At 110 bucks a night I didn't feel a few extra minutes to check out was a biggie but apparently the staff did. Aside from the aforementioned statement, although the place was clean and in fair condition, there wasn't anything that set it apart from a lower priced "rack rate" hotel. It is that fact that will prevent me from returning to this establishment.

FIRE!

While the hotel was clean and in a great location, getting woken up at 11:30 by a fire alarm and being evacuated for an hour in the cold was rather unpleasant. We were assured by the hotel that O*** would take care of a refund... now let's see what happens.

Great Mother's Day Weekend Getaway

We had great time staying at this hotel. The hot tub was amazing with the exception of the ladder with was a little loose. Great location and staff.
