The location was perfect. The balconies were a fantastic place to watch the sunrise and see the Mackinaw Bridge. In need of maintenance and housekeeping.

We booked this room without seeing the facility! We were pleasantly surprised with a great view right on the lake, a decent room and friendly staff!

We had a really great time at the Mackinaw Beach & Bay Inn & Suites. We loved being directly on the beach and the check in process was fluid. The rooms were well maintained and clean. Also, compared to the properties around it, MB&BI&S was much better maintained. The next time we go to Mackinac Island, we will definitely stay here again if possible. One drawback is that the walls are extremely thin, and you can basically hear everything in any room around you. Overall, a great experience for the time we were there. It also helped we were close to town and could have an extended walk downtown if we chose
