It was an okay stay

The hotel is in a great location but the staff at the desk were not the friendliest. I asked for change for a twenty and the clerk was downright rude. My daughter's candy became stuck in the machine and when she politely told the front desk staff, they blew her off and walked away. The cleaning lady was very nice to us though.

This was very disappointing

Arrived to very friendly staff. Room was ready. Walked in and had to try three light fixtures before finding one that worked. Room smelled damp, musty and smoky. Bathroom counter was dusty, and scummy around edges. Beds felt like box springs. We slept (or should I say did no sleep) one night. It was so bad, that despite having paid for two nights we abandoned the room and sprung for a $375 room at the Chippewa on the island for night 2. (They thankfully had a cancellation). This hotel needs help!

Excellent vacation value!!

We forgot our toothpaste...the ladies at the front desk gave us free samples they had behind the desk. The location was perfect...walking distance to everything from the ferry boats to the shopping/eating areas. Beautiful location. The beds and pillows were a little too firm for our taste, but otherwise, the value was good.

Pack food to take to Mackinac Island. The food on the island is expensive and there is a fridge and microwave in the hotel room.

We were here for an overnight while traveling to Canada. The hotel is older,but in good shape. Located within walking distance to the Island ferries. The hotel breakfast was actually across the street at another hotel.

blocks away from shopping and dining. The Starline ship leaves from the same parking lot as the hotel so you don't have to pay for parking.

Not impressed with this Hotel

Hotel was in a nice location, very close to the Mackinaw Ferries and downtown Mackinaw City. But Hotel had a spider infestation, all over the outside and we had about 30 on our balcony. Asked front desk to clean up balcony so we could sit there and got an attitude. We went and bought a can of bug spray and took care of them. But they were in hallways, doorways, around the outside...very disgusting. I guess they have a problem with them in the fall but it would have been nice to not have to clean up our own balcony.
