Anonymous, Aug 2019

Pros. Location was amazing, that was about it.

Cons. Ensure rooms are accessible, and clean before offering them. And friendlier staff.

10Wonderful
Anonymous, Sep 2018

Pros. Was a great location right on the water, a short walk to downtown Mackinaw City and right next to several of the main Mackinac Island Ferry docks. It's also only a 5 minute drive from the Headland's dark sky park and the Mackinac Bride. In addition to the great location, the hotel was clean and the free breakfast was very good

2Poor
Anonymous, Sep 2015

Cons. When we arrived we were informed that there was no room for us. My relatives still had a suite, but no room for us. They said they had tried to call us that morning, like it was our fault. We were moved down the road to another hotel which was nice, but away from family. Very disappointing.

Book a Room with a View

Several guests mentioned that the views from the rooms were spectacular. Opting for a room with a balcony facing the beach and Lake Huron comes highly recommended.

Consider Low Season Travel

Visiting in April can be a good idea as it may offer lower rates and fewer crowds, providing a more relaxed experience.

Check Nearby Attractions

The hotel's proximity to attractions like the Icebreaker Mackinaw Maritime Museum and Mackinac Bridge Museum makes it convenient for guests interested in local history and culture.

Verify Room Amenities

Some guests noted that not all rooms are equipped with microwaves, so if this is important to you, it's advisable to confirm this amenity when booking.

Plan for Breakfast

While the complimentary breakfast offers a variety of options, some guests suggested that the breakfast hours could be extended, so consider arriving early to avoid any rush.

Inquire About Shuttle Service

The hotel offers a shuttle to the boat dock, which can be a convenient perk, especially for guests looking to explore Mackinac Island without the hassle of moving their car.

Consider Off-Peak Times for Pool Use

Several guests mentioned that the pool area can get crowded, so if you prefer a quieter experience, consider visiting during off-peak hours.

Request a Beachfront Room

If having direct access to the beach is important to you, consider requesting a beachfront room to fully enjoy the private beach access offered by the hotel.

Check for Room Cleanliness

While many guests found the rooms clean and comfortable, some mentioned issues with cleanliness, so it's advisable to check the room thoroughly upon arrival.

Confirm Special Requests

If you have specific needs or preferences, it's recommended to communicate them clearly with the staff in advance to ensure a pleasant and accommodating stay.
