I loved it was right on lake Huron. I didn't like that you had to check in and out at a hotel 2 doors down and that the pool and breakfast they talked about were also offered at a different hotel. The room was out dated, clean but old, things were plugged in with extension chords.

Adequate facility for the money

Pros: View and location
Cons: Raise the shower nozzle.
Location: Close to Mackinaw city shopping, restaurants and boats to the island
We loved the view from the double wide log swings on the beach where we could see Lake Huron, the islands and the bridge. There were gas grills and fire pits on the beach as well. The room was clean but the shower was very low and we had to bend over to wash hair. There was a hot breakfast and the staff was friendly.

Office Location?

I had a hard time finding the office. Three motels, one office.

It was a nice view, but that's about it.

The room smelled musty, the floor in the bathroom was uneven and there was no caulk between the shower and the tile (just plenty of room for mold) and the toilet wouldn't stop running unless you removed the lid and closed it manually. I couldn't even check into the motel where I was staying. I needed to go three motels down and check in there because the Northwinds doesn't have any keys for the motel. Really? Need I say more. Stay somewhere else.
