Clarion Hotel Beachfront
Ranked #21 of 40 Hotels in Mackinaw City
Reviewed 29 February 2012

This worked fine for us and our 2 small children. We were a bit surprised at how out of date the hotel was, but our rooms were clean. Small fridge in room as well, which was nice when traveling with kids. Beach is nice. Breakfast was good, but busy.

Very very old and outdated. Dead mosquitoes all over the room. Bugs. Stayed one night and couldn't wait to leave. We had initially booked at Hamilton, but they "lost" our reservation and they have a deal with the Clarion to take their overbookings. Was very different than what we paid for. They didn't even give us the difference we were owed. We staid on the bottom floor and "beachfront". That just meant kids running above us all night and more bugs to come in from the gross beach. Will NEVER stay here again.

Room Tip: Do not stay in bottom room.

We stayed at the Clarion two nights with two other families. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable. The toilet and tub are separated from the sink area, which is nice when travelling with two kids. There is a bar fridge as well. The beach is lovely with clear view of the ferries and lots of beach chairs. It is a short walk to the ferry dock. It is a little bit farther than some hotels to the shopping area of MacKinaw City, but is still walking distance. As noted by other reviewers, the breakfast is not very good. We basically had the pool and hottub to ourselves, which was nice. I would stay here again.

We were there in September 2011, just before the fall colours really started showing. We had a room overlooking the lake. Watching the sunrise from the warm comfort of bed was an unexpected treat. Breakfast was busy but good. Room was clean and comfortable. The only negative was the cool dash from the pool back to our room (pool was in separate building). We were pleased to find the rail trail (biking and jogging) just across the road from the hotel. Nice walk into town for shopping (fudge and pasties!) We would stay there again.

We visited the area in October 2011 and the price of a beach front room was very reasonable. The front desk staff was very helpful and polite. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. I was a little concerned about the noise level from the parking lot or people walking by and it was very quiet in the room. The breakfast on the other had was a little disappointing but that really is no big deal. We were able to find something to tie us over for a while. Our overall experience was wonderful. We will definitely stay here again.
