When I booked through Travelocity we were told it came with continental breakfast but it did not only coffee and a prepackaged sticky blueberry muffin. No coffee maker in room.

Continental breakfast means continental breakfast - no breakfast bar. Spend an extra $100 on a room where you can get a breakfast bar next time you are in the area. It's really worth it!

The property was fine and taken care of. The parking lot isn't very big.

never stay at this hotel

Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: coast guard ship that you can tour lumberjack show and ferry ride to mackinac Island lighthouse and fort mackinaw
write about our experience where to begin first this hotel was named anchor inn at some point because the sign was still setting out behind the hotel the breakfast buffet was muffins watered down orange juice and cereal there is no one managing the budget inn you have to go next door to star lite budget inn to check into the hotel they don't use the office at the budget inn. the pictures they show online are deceiving oh but that's what the manager said to me if anybody reads this you should look at another place to stay but that's our feeling on this

I'll never stay again. I wanted to save money, but it wasn't worth it.
