very professional, they care about their guests. Great place to stay!!

We stayed here on our way downstate and really enjoyed the breakfast and pool. The room was very comfortable and clean, the staff were efficient and friendly, and the free breakfast was great with fresh fruit, biscuits and gravy, eggs, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, and pretty good coffee. I'd highly recommend this hotel!

good location and somewhat clean. Though AC was not working well. Approachable staffs.

We stayed only one night which was enough. I usually really like Holiday Inn Express hotels but this one was not as nice as the others I've been in. We were in room 113 so main floor right across from the vending/ice machines and laundry so it was noisy all night long. We needed 2 beds one for us and one for my daughter who is young. Our second bed was so worn out it sagged terribly, you basically fell out if you tried to sleep on that side. Pillows were all clumpy, room was cramped and bathroom was terribly outdated. The location was pretty far from the main area of traveling with children. I probably would not stay there again.

Hotel met my expectations. Clean, comfortable, friendly staff, and reasonable prive.

hotel was really nice for the price. room was clean and pleasant.

Everyone was friendly and the room was clean. Beds were cozy and the hotel had a flat screen in the room so it looks like they upgraded that from previous reviews I read. A bonus was the microwave and mini fridge that was not listed with the room so that was a nice surprise. It was your average hotel experience for the price you pay. No complaints about it.

I always stay at Holiday Inn if there is one around in a city and this has been the worst ever mainly due to the bed and the night time staff. Location was fine and thankfully heater was working. After. 500 mile drive this was the last thing expected when you rely on the quality Holiday Inn always deliver. Pay for Holiday Inn and get the cheap motel bed - last thing wanted on this trip.

The hotel staff was great and with the very large party of 11 year olds they were very prepared. The breakfast was always being refreshed and my room was just fine. Very nice and a very short stay but I would recommend this hotel for anyone needing to get a really fun group package. Thanks for the hospitality.

my mom and i stayed here. we brought my little puppy. this hotel is a great place to stay near town and able to walk around a bit.

no big problems. only there for a very short time.

Checked in, first thing we noticed was the ceiling looked like it could fall, big crack all the way across and drooping. Opened the door to the "private balcony" and there was a 6" deep pile of dead flies and other bugs. The balcony was filthy, could not sit on the 2 plastic chairs. Pulled down the bed covers, found 2 long black hairs on the sheets. Too tired to do anything, slept on top of the sheets. Next day left note for maid to change sheets, got back and same sheets still there, she also left used bars of soap and shampoo, not giving us fresh. Went to lobby to get soap and was told they only had one bar left. For spending almost $600.00 for 2 nights we are outraged and will never stay at a Holiday Inn again.

Room smelled of smoke so had to relocate. Thin walls kept us awake. Away from other hotels near water and main street so had to drive. OK breakfast, but not worth the room price. Would not stay there again

Our stay was good and the staff was great! BUT! The TV in the rooms sucks! Old and grainy picture tube! Way past due for LCD or LED flat screen upgrade!

I'm not sure what it is about the hotels in Mackinac City but all look nice on the outside and are in the inside. This hotel was very musty / muggy smelling and needs a face lift for sure...would not stay here again and the front desk staff was less than friendly.

Staff friendly and courtious and anice place to stay.

It took about 15-20 minutes of standing in line before we were checked in. However, it did not bother us because my husband and I are not complainers. We know they are busy and not big deal… But I wish we would have left then… We did not have a good experience at this Holiday Inn. Whenever possible we stay at Holiday Inn's because most of them seem pretty good. This one WAS NOT. We stopped at this hotel over night on our way to our family cabin in the UP. My husband needed to have access to the internet to get some work done. The internet connection BARELY reached the 3rd floor. So he thought no big deal and went to the lobby. It still would not work… when he mentioned it to the front desk they responded, "Yeah I have no idea. I will have someone reset it." 3 hours later it still was not working. We had to cut our vacation short because of this. We stayed in a Queen Jacuzzi room, which on the surface looked great. But it was old and dirty. Also the room was near the elevator and you could hear the dinging all night long. Even from the other floors. Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep. Also, the views from the hotel were not good. It is worth spending a little more to stay someplace else.

Overnight stop, good breakfast, friendly staff

The manager was very friendly and gave us a coupon for free tokens at the Casino and also told us about the bridge toll reimbursement from the casino. The hotel was older and the rooms could use an update/but were clean.

Very nice room and friendly hotel staff. Very good breakfast.
