This property rated 3 stars however their facility does not even compare to one star. I have paid for two rooms 422 dollars each and when I had arrived at the facility withhin an hour of my reservation was confirmed with travelocity I was told by the front desk that they only have one room for my family of 6. I was told that I must go to Ramada inn across a street which is rated 2 stars and is old and dirty hotel at 9pm with my kids on a 4th of July. I was downgraded without being told so and without getting the difference in price. When I arrived at Ramada inn they gave me the check in form to sign at 348 dollars to sign but refused to give me a copy stating I would get the copy upon my check out. In the morning they refused to give me a copy and refused to call the manager . They told me to get off the property, I had went to Crown inn to speak with the original front desk person which had lied to my face telling me that the expedia had screwed up while in coded language speaking with front desk at Ramada inn trying to cover up the fact that they have sold one off the rooms that were booked with Travelocity. She was rude and refused to give credit for down grading last minute and pulling a fast one by sending us to Ramada inn. I was told in so many words to get out of her face. She refused to give any document copies I had signed. I also want to say that the rooms are so old outdated and smell very bad. The hot breakfast is a joke it smelled like dirty school cafeteria.

Hotel going downhill

Pros: Water park. That was it.
Cons: Cleanliness, maintaining the rooms and hallways, the breakfast.
Location: Mackinaw City is a great place to visit, we go every year. Mackinac Island is a yearly vacation for our family.
We have always stayed here but this time we were really disappointed with the hotel portion. We will be finding somewhere different to stay next year. The waterpark is always a hit for my kids and still is but isn't the cleanest. There were spiders all over the walls in the staircase going to the water park. The room smelled like marijuana. The hallways were dirty. The fitness room was mostly filled with broken equipment. The milk was spoiled.....when she was told, she asked one of the guys that was in our group to help her fill the milk machine with bags of milk. We had many light bulbs out in our room. With all that being said about the room, I feel like because we bought our rooms through Travelocity that we were given the crappy rooms.

The hotel needs an update and a good cleaning! For instance in the corners of the bathroom. The water park was so humid that adults took chairs to sit outside just to breathe. We were able to use another water park just down the road which was new, temperatures were more comfortable and clean. Our hotel room had a problem with the tv. Maintenance came and worked on that. After arriving back to the hotel we had no hot water for showers. Maintenance called again and came at 11:15 pm. Two very tired adults and 5 very cranky children were not able to shower that night. The breakfast room was very very hot to the point of being sick. We would not recommend this hotel. The clerk at the check in desk was very curt with any requests. They would not issue a paper statement upon check out as I had registered on line. Overall I'm certain there are much better places we can choose in the future.

Ok hotel...was like a maze

Might recommed to someone w kids but access to rooms were outside. When raining you are walking thru water ankle deep. The breakfast at least they tried to keep up with refreshing. I didnt care for the taste of several items and the breakfast is on the third floor in a really inconvenient place. The temperature in there was about 90 degrees. Even trying to go out the side door from the lobby in the pouring rain was locked so that you got to enjoy the pouring rain a little more. The a/c did not keep the room cooled. I am sure the window was cold as the a/c blew behind the curtain. I couldnt get the rating scale to work but would say about average and tgat would be generous. Paint was pealing from doorways and bathroom had rust on floor by tub. We are not particular travelers a/c that works and not getting soaked going to and from a good tasting accessible breakfast are not high standards.

Hotel was probably nice in its hay day..

Booked hotel for its amenities for kids, such as large water slides. We checked in late after visiting Macinac island all day so did not get to use pool that night. The room was nice and clean which was nice. We tried to order a pizza but found zero chain restaurants so had to order pizza from a local restaurant. It was pretty good, but pricey. When i tried to get some sodas from the one machine in the building, I found the floor all chipped out underneath it and most of the bottles tipped sideways. Thought the single bottle of undisturbed Gatorade would do but when the machine would not accept dollar bills, I grabbed the ice and trecked dissapointedly back to the room to sip on ice water. After getting up at 9am the next morning, I found out check out was at 10am already so we rushed to the pool area only to find out that only the kiddy slides were at this hotel and the pictures large slides were several blocks away...We obviously didn't have time to do that. The entire side of the building that houses the pool area is very hot and there were dehumidifiers and crumbling walls everywhere. Thought I would check on staying another night to use big slides and check out the city but was shocked when I was told $389! I would never even consider paying half of that to stay in this unkept hotel, so we hurriedly packed and left. We missed the cont breakfast so stopped to get a simple breakfast down the road for a measly $60! I've seen enough of Macinaw City.

Very enjoyable stay. Close to the star line ferry.

Pros: The staff was very friendly. It was located close to the downtown shops and restaurants.
Cons: The free breakfast was so crowded that we had to go to a restaurant because there were not enough seats.
Location: conveniently located
We all had a great time. Our room was very comfortable and we had a great view.

Awful just awful

Where do I begin? well lets start with the fact that there is no elevator access to the 3rd floor above the water park, so if you are staying in a room up there be prepared to haul all your lugguge up the stairs. Next lets talk about the mold. In the hallway/stairway to the waterpark there is mold lining the wallpaper. Someone took it upon themselves to pull back the wallpaper to expose a nice linely of mold. Our room smelled of mildew/mold SO bad i had a headache for 2 days. I went to open the window to get some fresh air and guess what I found lining the window? yup that's right more mold. Don't come here unless you like mold, and a cold water park.
