Nice hotel close to everything.

Cons: Hotel could upgrade their bathroom toilets to higher units for the elderly.
Clean room. Close to everything we wanted to visit and see. There were some louder,older kids that didn't seem to have respect for others. There was a school group of parents and children that entertained us on the beach, while we watched from our balcony area. The children's performances were very entertaining. This group was very respectful of others.

Worst Hotel I've Ever Experienced

We checked in on Aug. 13, 2010 expecting the lake view room with balcony that we had reserved. We were informed that wasn't available but we could have a 2nd floor (no balcony and no elevator) room overlooking the parking lot. When we said to cancel it, we were told we would be charged 2 nights anyway as they had a 72 hour cancellation policy. We accepted it and went to the room. A representative of the hotel then called us and asked if we had a problem with the room. When we said yes, he told my wife to get out immediately (I had left to play golf). He and another man came to the room, hauled the suitcases down to the parking lot, and refused to let my wife wait in the lobby for me to return. She called me on the golf course where I cancelled my game and returned to the hotel to find her standing in the parking lot surrounded by our luggage. Absolutely unbelieveable! We have traveled quite a bit in our 60+ years, and have never received treatment anywhere else like we received from Comfort Inn in Mackinac City. Cross this hotel off your list. There are plenty of other places to stay.

Enjoyed our stay

We were very pleased with our room overlooking Lake Huron. The private balcony was very nice. Morning breakfast was good with a very friendly hotel staff member making sure everything is well stocked. Very close to Mackinaw Crossings and we were able to walk to all our destinations. Only problem during our stay was the wireless internet which did not work. Not a big deal, but it would have been nice for up-to-date weather reports for planning our daily activities.

Nice Hotel - Great Views

We have stayed here twice now. On this occasion is was the night before traveling to Mackinac Island. The hotel is located close to the docks and is right on the water with a nice sand beach. \n\nUnlike many hotels listing a lake view - this truly does have great lake views - assuming you opt for those rooms. It is nice to have your morning coffee on the balcony over looking the lake. \n\nThe included breakfast is ok. Fresh cooked waffles are available, but the seating area is a bit crowded and there are no eggs or breakfast meats available. \n\nAll in all a very good value - I would stay here again.
