This is a family run Inn at the base of the Bridge. This is a great location and very quaint setting. Some of the rooms are themed settings; we stayed in Casablanca. The room featured a poster of the movie poster and a décor right from the movie. The owners are very helpful in recommending things to do and where...

Stayed recently one night. Ours was the Grand Hotel room. Room was very small, bathroom even smaller. Theme room was decorated nicely and very clean. The beds were excellent and very comfortable. Was hard to get the room as cool as we prefer as the air conditioner is right in front and blocked by a bed. Water pressure from the...

Love this place! Have been coming here for years to celebrate anniversary!! Coming here for us is like seeing friends (the owners) we haven't seen in a year and catching up along with some wonderful scenery and relaxation. Rooms are always very clean and tidy. Love the breakfast area and wine and cheese nights. Always such a friendly atmosphere. Will...

No frills, no frig in room is very unusual anymore and inconvenient needed to keep insulin cold. Very small bathroom, decorative quilts need replaced and are full of holes. All rooms have movie themes rooms were very clean and beds comfortable. Was ok if you were just looking for a place to sleep. Great location near light house park.

This hotel is someplace to go when you desire to stay someplace that feels like you are visiting family. It isn't fancy, but you can't beat how pleasant this family run business is! The rooms are reasonably priced, good-sized, clean, and comfortable. The grounds of the hotel are across the street from a park and the beautiful vista of the...

Stayed in many Hilton, Marriot and Miele hotels here and in Europe. Decided to stay based on the others positive reviews. This is not an inn, but a typical motel near the Lake--the title is misleading. The owners are unfriendly, unhappy people--in the middle of check-in they can easily forget about you while discussing their own problems. Room was extremely...

we booked a standard room not deluxe didn't realize that meant no view, no invite to the wine and cheese evening. small room, very clean but the outside walk way was tacked down rubber matting on plywood. not very attractive. I knew about the wine and cheese because the people checking in ahead of us were given a card to...

Amazing stay. Every extra detail was appreciated. You won't be disappointed staying here. Clean, cute and extras. Coffee delivered to your room in the morning. Warm pool. Short distance to everything Mackinaw. We will be back and bring more friends and family!

This is my second time staying here. The first time was 4 years ago. I was surprised to see how things appeared to be run down and not well kept on the grounds. The room was very simple and the bathroom was just big enough for a bathtub and toilet. The water didn't drain properly and the water went extremely...
