        Location and nice unit

        It was expensive. Also, when I went to register, the receptionist was on the phone with what appeared to be her boss discussing one of the cleaning peoples work schedules and issues with it. She continued on the conversation for at least 8 minutes, instead of ending the call and helping me. I had people waiting in the car!

      • Family with children

        Was on the beachfront and very clean. Great place for the price and location. Would definitely stay there again but would get beachfront room.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        The beach, the swimming-pool and the kind people.

        No complains. It was good.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        The price was right for what we recieved, although they do not have blow dryers or irons in the room

        There was no blow dryer or iron in the room you had to go to the fornt desk to ask for them

      • Couple

        Great staff! Perfect location! Amazing deal compared to other hotels in the area. Would definitely stay here again

      • Older travelers

        We were staying on the Island for a couple of days and since we were first arriving after 7:00 p.m . we stayed at this motel for the night and left at 9:00 the next mornng for Mackinac Island. So this was just stop over before we got to the Island. It was retro but very clean and comfy beds. Nice staff.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        The staff was very friendly and accomodating.

        The bathrooms could have been cleaner and the fan should not come on each time you turn on the light switch.

      • Single
        4.2

        It was a poor place to stay and would not recommend it.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Older motel in style. Very clean rooms and excellent housekeeping staff. If choosing lake front rooms it is a beautiful view. Perfect for the budget minded traveler. I liked the fact that each room had a refrigerator.

      • Older travelers

        Shopping at all the store that are within walking.

      • Couple
        5.4

        It was really close to the downtown. Also nice lakeview.

        The heating was broken and we couldn't adjust the tempurature. It was sooo hot.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        The location allows easy access to all the nearby sights. The staff was friendly and helpful. Most importantly the view is amazing and the kids really enjoyed the beach and the pool.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Good value for the money. Convenient to activities of the area.

        Not really. The breakfast area is not adequate, but the food was good and well presented.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        The facilities were clean. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and free breakfast.

      • Group of friends
        5.4

        I liked how close the hotel was to the water and to the ferry's.

        I did not like the free breakfast that they provided and the cleaniness of my room. I had a blanket on my bed with poop on it.
