Crown Choice Inn & Suites Lakeview & Waterpark

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We found our room up elevator 3 floors - across to the breakfast area then up a bunch of stairs - great view of the back parking lot..... not impressed...

Pool is green, room dirty and well used. Bed was good

Room not clean on arrival (food stain on wall, popcorn on floor, floor sticky to walk on, bed linens stained) and not cleaned properly during our 3 night stay. Also, walking from room to parking lot was treacherous due to extremely poor snow removal which had turned to ice. No attempts made to apply salt. Seemed to not care if guests fell on the ice. Have never stayed at a hotel so poorly run. And, it certainly is not a cheap place to stay--it actually is quite expensive.

Room was very tired, doors did not close properly, mop boards dirty in bathroom, mildew smell throughout. Price is a big high, like Florida is cheaper . I would suspect the owner is no longer in residence. Staff was very accommodating, they are not local residents., but from a carribean island. They speak proper English and act very properly which may have made some uncomfortable, but they were actually the highlight of this stay.

At check in the hotel staff was luke warm but it was about 11:00 p.m. The room description stated 4 queen size beds which turned out to be 3 beds and a worn out pull out couch but we dealt with it just fine. The bathroom had mold on the ceiling - enough that it looked splattered all over, mold in the shower. The free breakfast was disappointing. They opened for breakfast at 7:00 a.m. We arrived at 8:00 a.m. The food was cold - not luke warm - cold, the milk dispenser was broken and the coffee tasted old. The staff working the food acted as if they did not care about what they were doing. When we checked out at 9:00 a.m. the staff was, again, luke warm. So sad. The location is great but not worth the premium price we paid.

Check in and out time are inconvent. Was not able to check in until 4pm and check out was at 10am which online stated 3pm and 11am.

They only allow check in after 4pm while check out before 10am even when it is not busy, which is very inconvenient. The room was located on top of waterpark, which is hot, humid and noisy.

We had a few minor things wrong with the room, but they were fixed immediately. It was a great stay and the room was beautiful. Had a great time in the waterpark and their sister waterpark which you get in free as well. Would recommend to anyone. Great family experience.

The check in staff was not very welcoming and the bathroom was gross

Room was okay, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was prepackaged and institutional. Staff was professional and friendly. I had the feeling that I was paying for the Water park not the room. This would be a good location for families looking for a crowded Water Park.

There was a minor issue that was brought to the staff's attention and they immediately corrected it. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. The hotel's location is convenient to the Star line dock and after a pleasant but tiring day on Mackinac Island, it was nice to be close to the hotel. The kids enjoyed the water park and the breakfast buffet was satisfactory. I would stay here again.

Front desk lady was very sweet and helpful. Beds were very comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

Friendly front desk staff, assisted us with scheduling the ferry. Excellent location for all ferry docks, shopping and walking to Dowtown. We stayed for the truck show and were able to sit right in front of the hotel and watch.

We enjoyed our three day stay very much. The grandsons had a blast at the water park, it was a great way to cool down after a busy day of fun. We were close to everything that we wanted to do, and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend this hotel to friends, we plan to come back.

Nice rooms, very good rates (off-season ended up being $49 a night for 1 queen bed including water park and continental breakfast). Walls were a bit thin and could hear some sound coming from neighbors, but other than that, no complaints.

We used Mackinaw City as a central location to travel from. The hotel is in a good location to visit Mackinaw Island, see the Mackinaw Bridge or visit Sault St. Marie and the Soo Locks. Booking through Orbitz saved us about $36/night. The price was as good or better than the coupon books that are issued. The night before we tried to use a coupon and the hotels would not honor them and we paid the $36 more for a comparable room. The hotel is beautiful with a lot of amenities, especially an indor water park which would be great for the kids. The location is great and the hotel well maintained with a deluxe free breakfast and a lot of room in the breakfast room. I would definitely stay there again.

Very nice room, got a great price for Mackinaw City - and hotel had a nice small water park. Staff was very friendly and polite, and offered discounts for local restaurants.
