borderline ok for the money

pros: Good Breakfast, swimming pool access cons: not very clean, room looks old - needs updates. Cheap place to stay , so don't expect above and beyond service. Wasn't very baby friendly. Didn't have a play -yard or a high chair (only available in the breakfast room during break fast hours. )

good price for location

This is your average hotel, they could use some updates to make it more pleasing to the eye, and a microwave in the room would be nice. Also extended breakfast time would be nice cause everyone is trying to cram in in a short time period. Other than that, which is not a problem, we had a great stay. No issues.

basic room

The staff was friendly and courteous. The rooms are very basic.The gap around the door is wide enough to see the outside through. Thin mattress, thin blanket, stained carpet. The towels are completely threadbare. A reasonably clean place to sleep, nothing more.

Good Value

It was alright. Nothing really to complain about. But, then again it was nothing to brag about. I would stay there again-for the price it was a pretty good value

Good, affordable lodging

For a budget motel, this place is very good. For your money you get free WIFI, an awesome pool with hot tub and free continental breakfast including a waffle maker. The room was clean and comfortable. This is the second time I have stayed here and have been satisfied both times. The location is poor and difficult to find for people not from the area. It's off the beaten path. It's a bit far from the Mackinaw City center to walk unless you don't mind a long walk (or driving and parking elsewhere). Overall, a very nice and affordable place to stay.

Dirty sheets and floor.

The sheets on one of the beds had dirty footprints on them. Both my wife and I found french fries on the floor at the edge of the dirty bed.
