Booked this on a weekend whim with friend. A bit of a walk to town and restaurants. Nice beach area. Good value for one night stay to Mackinaw.

Very satisfied

Would recommend Wed, Oct 14, 2015
The staff was very accommodating for our needs for a room on the main floor because one of our party could not climb stairs. The room was clean and the beds very comfortable. We even visited the hot tub and pool.

Weekend getaway

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 14, 2015
When we walked in the manager was arguing with someone in the phone at the counter. It was unprofessional and made everyone uncomfortable as it wasn't very welcoming. Hotel is very loud. Kids running up and down the hallway at night and in the morning. Would upgrade to a better place next time, this one isn't worth the money.

Room was perfect for family....3 beds!!

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
The hotel was a great location. It was clean and the best part was we had 3 beds in one room with 2 tvs. Wish it had an extra sink outside the bathroom area but overall loved it. The free breakfast was not good at all. Long line, was set up horribly and no eggs left at 8:30 in the morning. But it was free

Bring your own pillow

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
Staff and hotel was excellent!!! The breakfast was good and the hotel was clean. My only complaint was the pillows. Normally I don't have any issues, but they are filled with egg carton like foam, and are very uncomfortable. I would stay here again.

A stop over before the island

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
Room was very clean. The bed was a comfy surprise. That doesn't happen often in hotels. We had a lakeview room and agree it's worth the extra to have the beautiful sunrise. Breakfast wasn't spectacular, but filled the empty spot until we got to the island. We would absolutely stay here again.

clean room but needs updating

Would not recommend Fri, Aug 21, 2015
The location was right on the water and the room was very clean. The decor really needs to be updated and if they could add some kind of soundproofing it would be helpful. Overall, it was Ok.

excellent vacation hotel

Would recommend Mon, Jul 20, 2015
This was a very good hotel it was on the edge of the main strip, but everything was still within walking distance. The hotels location on the water was awesome as we were able to get up early and watch a sunrise over the water, very beautiful. There were chairs on the beach. We booked at the last minute but if I was up there again I would definately book early and get a room on the waterfront. Overall and excellent experience.
