    The breakfast was good. The location was prime for travel to the island, equidistant to each of the docks for the two major ferry lines. The room was nice, the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area.

    I don't like that the pool wasn't accessible without a trip outside. It was still cool enough outside that that was a deterrent from bringing my young kids to the pool. The layout was only ok for things like the breakfast location and pool location; they very much have the appearance that they were add-ons after the original building was completed. I also had an issue with our toilet not wanting to flush. The maintenance response was quick and efficient, but later in our stay it appeared as though the fix wasn't complete.

    Impressed by the size of the room for the price we paid. We were not in the room much - only to sleep. We had a lakeview room that had an awesome sunrise the following morning. The room was clean and the heat worked great. We were freezing from being @ the island most of the day in 32 degree weather and when we got back to the room it was super warm and the beds were comfortable. Good selection of TV channels and a decent free breakfast the next morning. Great location to everything. Would recommend.

    Great Place to Stay

    What we liked best was the way the rooms are set up. There is an open suite with a private room on each side. The rooms are lovely, nice linens, towels, pillows, and comfortable beds. We were traveling with my brothers and their wives, whom we haven't seen in a long time. It made it easy for us to spend time together. Plus, the location was central enough for us to walk to restaurants and local stores. I would happily return to this motel/hotel in the future.

Going off the grid doesn't mean you have to be miles away from civilization when you select this incredible Mackinaw City hotel.
