Recent guest reviews

Room was clean and spacious, the rate was inexpensive for the area, but the beds were small and uncomfortable. The television was old and very "snowy." The bathroom is small and cramped while the tub/shower had very little water pressure and jumped constantly between scorching and freezing. It's a place to stay, but not a great place to stay.

The room was dirty the bathroom door was warped and would not shut the entry door didn't shut securely you could see daylight all around it this allowed the cold when to come in at all times I went to the office and told him about the dirtiness of the room and the other problems they did not totally clean the room they did not give me any kind of discount for all these problems probably will never stay there again

Bed wasn't clean. Needs new bedsheets. Toilet keep flushing. Too much salt in the breakfast. Good for one day stay

Staff was nice and pleasant. Room was very out of date. Basic room, no bells or whistle's. Needs many new updates but it worked for staying a night. Breakfast was nothing special, basic hotel food.

Clean, fresh smelling room. fantastic pool with towels available. great hot breakfast with helpful cheerful staff, they held door for me as I had hands full, (took food back to room) they offered to assist me. plan on staying again in spring for winsome women. have already took several friends and family about great experience.

Hotel was ok. Breakfast was pretty good. Other guests were quite noisy at all hours of the night. I guess you can expect that with a bargain hotel.

Nice room. Was clean and comfortable and the pool was nice also. Breakfast in the morning was good and staff was very friendly and helpful. I would stay there again.

The only things going for this hotel are it's staff and the breakfast. We stayed for two nights and found the bed to be very uncomfortable. My husband even left the bed and laid down on the floor for a little while the first night. He felt like the pillows were too soft and the bed slanted toward the middle. We do not plan to ever stay here again.

pros: Good Breakfast, swimming pool access cons: not very clean, room looks old - needs updates. Cheap place to stay , so don't expect above and beyond service. Wasn't very baby friendly. Didn't have a play -yard or a high chair (only available in the breakfast room during break fast hours. )

This is your average hotel, they could use some updates to make it more pleasing to the eye, and a microwave in the room would be nice. Also extended breakfast time would be nice cause everyone is trying to cram in in a short time period. Other than that, which is not a problem, we had a great stay. No issues.

Nice people run the place. Good breakfast, great location, quiet rooms a plus. Affordable. Great! Thanks.

The staff was friendly and courteous. The rooms are very basic.The gap around the door is wide enough to see the outside through. Thin mattress, thin blanket, stained carpet. The towels are completely threadbare. A reasonably clean place to sleep, nothing more.

It was alright. Nothing really to complain about. But, then again it was nothing to brag about. I would stay there again-for the price it was a pretty good value

things were worn out and it also needed a good cleaning. Our room carped was so dirty we wore shoes.

would not stay again, family was not comfortable the beds were old and lumpy

This place was total run-down. The beds sheets were old and dirty, the breakfast was okay. Only positive is, its walking distance from the ferry point to island

For a budget motel, this place is very good. For your money you get free WIFI, an awesome pool with hot tub and free continental breakfast including a waffle maker. The room was clean and comfortable. This is the second time I have stayed here and have been satisfied both times. The location is poor and difficult to find for people not from the area. It's off the beaten path. It's a bit far from the Mackinaw City center to walk unless you don't mind a long walk (or driving and parking elsewhere). Overall, a very nice and affordable place to stay.

The sheets on one of the beds had dirty footprints on them. Both my wife and I found french fries on the floor at the edge of the dirty bed.

Good location, easy to find, great breakfast and helpful staff.

The good: had upgraded room with king bed and jacuzzi tub. The room was large and the tub was great. The bad: bed had noticeable lean to one corner in the mattress and was very uncomfortable. They had the worse towels I have ever used at a hotel. They were very rough and old. The breakfast had no eggs so don't go for the breakfast!
