day trip to Mackinac City

Would not recommend Thu, Aug 13, 2015
Internet did not work at all (we were told it doesn't work for Apple products after we checked out). The bathroom had black mold on the walls. The lock was broken on the main door. The cable worked for an hour and then turned off in the middle of a movie. We called three times about it and were told they could do nothing. The phone we tried to use to call wouldn't work, so we had to leave the room to use a different phone. And worst of all--when we explained these things in the morning, the manager was VERY rude and told us to call the main number and threw a magazine with the number at us. Horrible stay.

Nice surprise

Would recommend Mon, Aug 25, 2014
On our way to Mackinac Island late at night and made a last minute reservation. Arrived late, staff was courteous and we had a nice surprise in the morning to look out our window and see the bay, sunrise was beautiful. Room was large with two separate areas. Would have been ideal for families.

Not that good ... But not bad either

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 16, 2014
This was a most average hotel that could use an update. The advantage is that the rooms offer 2 bedrooms, fridge, microwave; which is nice or families. The hotel is on the sandy beach, with a nice firepit, but the lake-side area is mucky and overgrown with weeds and grass. The deck area outside of the room overlooking the lake is nice. A beautiful sunrise can be viewed if up early enough. The breakfast buffet was less than ordinary, although the waffle maker was popular. The pool area is sub-standard, thankfully they offer the use of the indoor waterparks of neighboring hotels. Not much to set this hotel apart from the many, many other hotels in town.

Would recommend Sun, Oct 27, 2013
lots of space in the room, breakfast was at another hotel due to remodeling but it was very satisfactory. Since it was the last weekend open for the season the process were very reasonable

Attractions

Mackinac island ferries are close and there is a shuttle if needed

Poor customer service

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 27, 2013
We recently stayed ant the Mackinaw Beach and Bay resort for a night, and the stay was interesting. The facilities are nice, the room was clean, beds were comfortable and the view of the lake was great. However, when we arrived in the room my wife noticed that we only had a quarter roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. Having two boys, 6 and 7 and two adults in the room, she called down to the front desk to request another roll. Sitting in the other room I could hear her on the phone answering a number of questions about how much toilet paper was on the roll, how much we expected to use during our visit and so on. It sounded like she first needed to justify the need for toilet paper before it would be provided. I quickly discarded the conversation and focused ont eh view of the lake. A few minutes later I pulled out our iPad and tried to get online to look for a good restaurant in the area. My iPad was able to see the WIFI and make a connection but the connection was too slow to pull up pages. I tried connecting to the WIFI with my iPhone but received the same results. I finally grabbed the kids and iPad and headed down to the pool figuring I could use the interest connection down there. The connection in the pool area was non-existent. I left my wife in the pool area with the kids and went to the front lobby to use a hotel computer. When I asked the front desk clerk if they had a guest computer she said no but they had free WIFI, when I explained that I could not get it to work a man stepped out of the back and started to argue with me about it, telling me they had that WIFI setup for three months and never had a single complaint about it. When I tried to explain that the connection was down he told me it was a free service. I also mentioned that the hallway outside of our room was hot and the thermostat in the hallway said the temperature was 88 degrees. He told me that I was mistaken and must have been exaggerating the temperature. I quickly realized that John was in his own reality and determined that all customers are out to get him. I sat in the front lobby area for another 15 minutes trying to check a few websites on my phone. During that time, I heard John, the manager snap at a customer telling them that no bikes were allowed in the hotel and that he needed to leave his bike outside or incur and fine. A few seconds later, I overheard him arguing with a customer on the phone telling them he would charge them extra if they show up at his hotel with more guests than they had the room booked for. On my way back to the room I overheard a couple saying that they got verbally reprimanded in the morning for trying to take toast out of the breakfast area. Apparently food is not allowed to leave the eating area. The most ironic part of the stay was that I have never seen a hotel manager with such bad customer service. The hotel itself is nice but how many customers will ever return once they are treated like that, I know that I won’t. John, take a class on customer service and realize that customers want to have a pleasant stay. They don’t want to be treated like that on vacation.

perfectly okay, nothing special

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 19, 2013
A two-star property in a neighborhood full of them. The staff is nice and friendly, though they push the "featured" branded restaurants and don't offer any local suggestions. I thought it was a bit pricey for what we got.
