Had three rooms for our family! Nice pool, with deeper end. Comfortable beds and pillows, good shower, typical HIE breakfast. Used coin laundry. Would stay here again. However- this location is a bit away from town if you were planning on walking. Good restaurant across the street for lunch and dinner.

Nice and decent place to stay by the water. Polite and courteous hotel staff, smooth check-in. The rooms were outdated, it was probably a different hotel that got converted to holiday inn. Pretty standard breakfast, kind of got tired eating the same thing in the morning :) The restaurant outside the hotel was pretty awesome.

My wife and I recently stayed with our small dog and enjoyed the visit. The room was very clean and well appointed with all needed items. Being on the first floor, outside noise from trucks parking outside our window was a problem at times, but it did not prevent us from having a good nights sleep. Breakfast was great with...

While we had an ok stay, this place really needs some upgrades. It certainly was not up the standards I normally find in a Holiday Inn Express. Our main complaint was the mattresses. They are in dire need of replacing. The mattress on our bed was so soft that neither of us got a good nights' sleep. The air conditioning...

Breakfast was just average, staff not overly friendly, Carpets needed to be shampooed, made my socks dirty just walking on it. Bed was pretty soft and mushy. Lots of goose poop on the grass had to watch where we walked on the grass near the beach.

Booked a two night stay with the intention of visiting Mackinac Island. The staff was pleasant and helpful when we checked in. We booked a room with two queen beds on the second floor because we did not want to pay for the rooms with a balcony on the 3rd or 4th floor. We were upgraded to an end room...

This was our first stay at this particular HI Express, but chances are it'll be our last. No complaints about the staff, who were friendly and helpful, but for what we paid the room was not up to the usual Holiday Inn standards. Our room had a balcony with a decent view of the lake (over the freeway), and we...

Thank you for your review, we take every comment seriously...good or bad. The lights on the balcony must stay on, as a safety feature, and yes, the lights do attract the moths and mosquitos and I apologize for that...but it is Northern Michigan...in July.

Very noisy, (July 4th weekend) very THIN walls and floors. Way over priced @ $230/night! Fair breakfast, very crowded, way too many kids, (holiday weekend?) Too close to the highway, lots of traffic noise.

Happy Fourth of July...yes, we were very crowded with families and children, it was a holiday weekend. We are next to the highway, but next time you come for a visit, we can suggest a room on the West end...lower numbered rooms...401-412. Thank you again for your review...every comment helps GM
