We stayed at the Mackinaw Beach & Bay for five nights in September and have stayed here for the last several years. We keep coming back because the rooms are spacious and always very clean, the housekeeping personnel are pleasant and the people at the front desk are always helpful and friendly. Although the free breakfast is the typical fare,... More

From the moment we arrived, we felt a negative vibe from the personnel. Not that they were mean, just as if this was an oppressive place to work. We went to the room and noticed a light was out in the bathroom. The mgr. came to change the light bulb and pulled up the chair to change the bulb. His... More

Very clean hotel and room. Room was more than we were expecting in size with the beds being separated on different ends of the room. Staff helpful and courteous. Beautiful view of the Mackinaw Bridge from our balcony. Will definitely stay here again!

We stayed here when we can up north to do the "great turtle race" on the island. Room was clean & comfortable. Breakfast was good . A little disappointed they didn't have fresh fruit like bananas or apples. Otherwise a good rest for the price we paid.

We arrived too late to go down to the beach and the weather was too cool. However the view from our room was fantastic from the balcony. The moon was rising over the water, the star were out and if you looked to the left you could see the Mackinaw Bridge all lit up. Our room was very nice, it... More

The location is really good and the views on the lake side great! It has been used and abused by the hoards of summer vacationer the years. The whole place could use a facelift. Staff was friendly and when I asked for them to email me my receipt, they couldn't do it. An older gentleman at the desk said, "they... More

My wife/friends and I spent a night at this hotel and found satisfactory. The views from the room of Mackinac Island and Lake Huron were great as was the view of the Mackinac Bridge. The room was much bigger than I thought it would be albeit dated. I have never spent a night in a hotel with the setup that... More

Average hotel, what you would expect for the price. Could use some updates but it's not too bad. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was free but not terribly good. I find that all the food in Mackinaw City to be less than average though. The location was great, close to the ferries and town. Also right on... More

My cousin and I went for a 4 day getaway that was long overdue. The staff was friendly and accommodating from the time we walked thru the doors in the middle of the night, to getting us checked in to our reserved room early the next day. The only disappointment is they are closing for the winter season and we... More
