Positive Reviews

Excellent Mackinaw Location

This hotel is conveniently located for exploring the Mackinaw City area and all that it has to offer. You'll be within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and ferry docks which will take you across the Straits to Mackinac Island. This is also a good base for exploring nearby Upper Penninsula towns.

Well-Appointed Rooms

Rooms are spacious and feature comfortable beds and good shower pressure in the bathroom.

Rooms With a View

This hotel offers rooms with excellent lakefront views which give you wonderful views of Mackinac Island. You can enjoy watching the ferries and freighters go by.

Negative Reviews

Unfriendly Staff

Guests say the staff at this hotel are not welcoming, friendly, or helpful. You will feel processed and not welcome by a borderline rude staff.

Building Needs Updating

Both the hotel and room are in need of modernization. Old features dominate the rooms. Carpets need replacing, bathroom tile grout is black, and hallways show signs of wear and tear.

Accessing Rooms Problematic

It's a long walk to climb stairs that are exposed to weather elements, and a long walk to access the elevator at the other end of the property. You'll also have to walk outside to access the breakfast area.
