Reviewed 4 August 2015

We were very happy with this hotel, it was a great value for high tourist season. It was easy walking distance to the Mac bridge and downtown was only about a 15-minute walk. There were a couple of restaurants across the street, too. Rooms were very clean and modern with a huge counter in the bathroom to hold all our...

The entire experience was a pleasant surprise to us. From the registration process, to the room appointments, the free pancakes at 8 PM (Yes, 8 PM!) , the hot breakfast with sticky buns!! ... The view of the bridge from our balcony. Wow... The room was really well appointed and spotless. Some previous reviews have complained about noise ... but...

Nice place to stay. Clean, comfortable and quiet while we were there. Very large pool also; much bigger than most pools in hotels of this size. Good breakfast in the morning. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place to stay close to the Mackinaw bridge.

Room was nice and clean, furniture was more recent. Pillows were nice with a firm or soft choice. Pool was nice with a hot tub and sauna room. Breakfast had good cold and warm options. Staff was great, very pleasant. The only issue I had is that the hotel is a little too far inland to get a good view...

Reviewed 30 July 2015

This motel is conveniently located at the south end of the Mackinac Bridge, two blocks from Colonial Michilimackinac. Its proximity to the Interstate brings some road noise that can be avoided by selecting a lower numbered room. Even numbered rooms face the straits. Most have balconies providing good views of the bridge and water. It's a tad expensive for an...

Thank you for that 5 STAR review...you painted a very accurate picture of the hotel. Close to the Fort...and the highway. I like your numbering system...and its true, higher numbers are closer to the highway. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to your next visit...up North! GM

Super nice, and clean. The kids loved the indoor swimming pool. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. A little pricey but worth it. Very close to businesses and the beach. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to family and friends.

Jefferson City, Missouri
Reviewed 29 July 2015 via mobile

We booked two queen sized beds ended up with two full sized.. Staff was indifferent to the situation and unwilling to help in anyway. Not a very good experience on our vacation but at least the rooms were decently clean. The room was very tight quarters.

Thank you for your review...I'm sorry you felt we were unaccommodating. According to your Hotels.com reservation, you booked a Standard Room (2 doubles)...you requested 2 queens, but we were sold out of 2 queen rooms and sold out completely at the hotel that evening, so there was no where to move you. Next time, please call the hotel direct and...

The room was modern, clean, had a refrigerator and microwave. I did see trash behind the television stand--but that didn't bother me that much. The breakfast is ok. The pool is very nice with a hot tub and sauna. Sadly, it's a great hotel, but Mackinaw City is awful.

Nice clean and organized. We brought our dog, the stay was great. Breakfast was well organized, plenty of choices, clean. Location was great, away from the congested lakefront but close enough to be within walking distance of all the shops.

Do not be fooled by the outside appearance!! When we walked out of the elevator the entire floor smelled of chemicals. The rooms were musty and the floor were damp and there was trash under the bed! When we went to the front desk to ask for a different room, they did switch us, but did not apologize once. While...
