Only thing that was nice was the view. Everything was falling apart, faucet was just hanging, countertop in bathroom was broken. Fridge didnt work. Neighbors partied all night. Had to check in at another hotel. No breakfast in the morning

VERY DIRTY AND NASTY PLACE PLEASE DO NOT TAKE KIDS HERE.

I will stay here anytime in in the area again! The room was huge. We had 2 sliding doors and right on the beach. Also we had a private patio. My dog was welcome and happy. The staff was friendly and sweet.

Property was not kept up well and facilities dirty. Room access was from outside with only a door knob lock no dead bolt from the outside. For paying top dollar for rooms it was terrible. We left without staying.

The room was filled with bugs and cobwebs and when I spoke to the Manager she was very rude and initially refused to give me a refund and didn’t believe me about cobwebs and bugs until I showed video footage. Also the water park and pool where under construction and unavailable for use so that was false advertising on part of Hotel. Finally, breakfast was also not available on site and you would have to go next door to another hotel. Very poor service and hospitality by the manager. I ended up having to leave hotel and cancel the reservation and this was 11:00 at night and I had 3 small children. It was a very frustrating and horrible experience.

The view and location were awesome. Accommodation were made for water park, pool, and breakfast due to construction.

One of the worst ive ever stayed at. Heater was broke, room took over an extra hour to check into, so we didnt get in until after 5. Dead bugs everywhere, smelled musty and had a huge dehumidifier going that was loud. Very dinky tv, only one light worked, microwave was broke, door to beach was broke, shower had mold and the bed was a brick. Absolutely horrendous.

The room was not clean. The srean door would not close all the way and sink did not drain. Beach was dirty and the outside of the building.

Beautiful beach view, extra large room worked great with 4 kids, fun water park/spa/pool for family.

Good rates with access to 3 Waterparks, and great breakfast. Located on Lake Huron...the only bad thing was there wasn't an elevator, and we were on the 4th floor..we had a great view.. also.it is right next to the Star Line Ferry to Mackinaw Island, and they offer discounted tickets for the Star Line at the desk

The pool and whirlpool had scum and green alge growing on the the floors. The drains were plugged to the splash pad and pool. Rust fell off the rafters and was on the floor. The breakfast and water park were both at different properties. The room smelled like mold and was dirty and wore out. The shower head was so plugged we ended up washing under the faucet. Need we say more?

We arrived around 9pm and got to our room and it had stains all over the floors, the bathroom had a really bad mold smell. We had a bad smoke smell coming into our room all night when we called front desk they were very rude about it and said I can’t control if anyone smokes In our rooms or not. In the morning for breakfast you had to go to the hotel next door for the breakfast. When we checked in they told us we would have access to 3 different water parks just had to go sign some papers for them at the office when we went to do that in the morning they told us we could not since we would be checking out soon so no longer would be customers of theirs. Just overall not happy we ended up moving our second night to Great Lakes Inn. And it was a lot nicer and the owner was so willing to help with anything you needed.

beds were uncomfortable and made up wrong...linen was shabby

We stayed here in 2014 and it was a clean, well taken care of hotel with a great water park for the kids. This time was different. Checking in late, in the evening, there were still bags of dirty towels and garbage strewn across all the hallways. Those bags were still there when we woke up next morning. The room itself was clean, and a good reason to stay here... but if you are choosing this hotel for the water park, AVOID IT. The waterpark was covered in slimy mold. Without exaggeration. We could see that the park had not been cleaned in a significant amount of time, especially the kids' play area. The water in the huge hot tub was green and murky. Disgusting. It does not get this dirty in a short amount of time... we're talking long term lack of maintenance. If you just want to sleep here, go ahead. It's a fine hotel. (Make sure you pay a bit more and get the water-view rooms!) Do not stay here if you are doing it to entertain the kids.
