Not a pleasant experience....

We just returned from our stay at the Bayside Hotel, and it was not a pleasant experience. The hotel room wreaked of urine, so after we put our bags down and used the stinky restroom, I walked downstairs to let them know. They said they couldn't give us another room because they were full and housekeeping already left. They did offer an air cleaner thing and spray, which neither helped the smell. The tub was clogged, the floors were sticky, the room didn't have a fridge or microwave and the internet didn't work half of our stay. We came back from Mackinaw Island at 4pm on day 2 of our stay, and housekeeping hadn't cleaned our room yet. The 25' breakfast buffet was a joke... Nothing fresh on the buffet, just bread (bagels, cereal, waffles, biscuits) and then sausage, gravy and canned fruit), along with OJ, milk and coffee. Typical standard basic breakfast buffet at least has some fresh bananas, apples and yogurt. Nothing like that there. On a positive note, the staff was very helpful and nice. You also get to use an indoor water park at another hotel free of charge. It's not fantastic, but it's something because you need to rinse off after staying at this place. We paid $140 (w/tax) per night to stay in this nasty 2 star hotel. Very disappointed.

Great location, reasonable rate

The location was great. This was close to shopping, attractions and all of the Ferry's to the island. The room was decent but could use some updating.

good overall

I was happy about the room cleanliness. because the facility looks a little old i didn't have high expectations but it turned out the room is very clean. the beds doesn't smell like others. also, there's free breakfast and food is ok. almost everything is fine but the receptionist. i was expecting at least a good treatment but she didn't have that hospitable, welcoming personality.

Quick getaway

We went to explore the city and island and also enjoyed our stay. Pool/hot tub/ sauna/ waterpark were all nice to have. Breakfast was typical free hotel breakfast, with long lines. Overall enjoyed our stay for a young couple.

Family Weekend Get-away

It was a good experience overall. Within walking distance of just about everything in the City. Recently updated and combined with Comfort Suites, next door. Indoor water park (with separate indoor pool, giant hot tub, and sauna) and HOT buffet style breakfast (not advertised on website) an added bonus to the stay Still needs some finishing touches, but I would definitely stay there again.

Great for the price

I stayed here for a few days with some friends. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and the location was great. The continental breakfast wasn't anything special, but for a free breakfast it was good. The hotel is right across the street from the ferry docks, and is walking distance from some great shops and restaurants. The pool was nice, but it is a bit of a maze to get there. Overall, the hotel is great for the price you pay. I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Great for the price

Stayed here 1 night and had no complaints. Comfortable beds, super nice front desk. Breakfast was below average, but otherwise, would stay here again.

would never stay there again!

Hallways and Windows were filthy. Cobb webs were hanging from sprinkle heads. Comforter in room had stains. Breakfast bar was ok but simple at best and not filled due to low staffing levels.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Pizza Palace was amazing. Good food and service. Plus it's not owned by the owners of the Bayside Hotel which happens to own many dining and hotels in the Mackinaw City Area.
