We stayed there during the middle of the week 2 nights - had a gorgeous view of the lake. the room we selected had a pullout sleeper bed so my 2 children didn't have to share a bed which was nice. Hot breakfast including eggs, waffles, etc. .... overall a great experience and we would stay there again.

Nice beach area. Room needed a good cleaning. Cob webs, floor needed vacuumed, walls wiped down. Bathroom was clean. They don’t offer much of a variety for breakfast and what they did offer didn’t look very appetizing.

The beach was a mess. Our water front view was not worth the 30 bucks upgrade. Although, the room was clean. The whirlpool tub looked a little suspicious and took up a 3rd of the room. The breakfast tables were messy and the food offering was average at best. I don’t recommend this location to anyone.

Nice comfortable and clean

Pros: Very clean and beds very comfortable and very quiet
Cons: Location of breakfast room and pool
Location: Color tour, Mackinaw Island, Upper peninsula of Michigan
Only negative was had to walk out door to get to breakfast room and to the pool area. Since this is way northern Michigan should have access in doors.

Not happy

Pros: I did like the hotel being located on the beach.
Cons: Clean the hotel and freshen it up with some paint.
Location: Great location and resturants nearby.
The hotel looked great on the internet; however, the hotel was quite old and not maintained. It needed a powerwashing and the room was not vacuumed properly. My son's wheelcair wheel broke from a transport bus frrom the ferry to the hotel. We asked the front desk if we could borrow a wrench to fix the wheel and they referred us to their maintenance man who would not lend us any tools, so my son had to sit in his room for a whole day. Unbelievable.

Excellent beachfront location

Hotel quality is typical for this price range. However, the long private beach that is shared with neighboring hotels was an unexpected surprise. Our kids loved it. We would stay there again.

Clean, but could use an update

The staff was excellent. The room was clean. Some outdated furnishings. Breakfast was a nice bonus. Great set up and selection.
