The staff.was great but our room was dark and dingy. The vent fan in the bathroom was falling off the ceiling. Coffee pot didn't work, the carafe was not even for that machine.

Should have read more reviews!! This hotel was just horrible. The staff that we encountered had no customer service skills whatsoever, but there were 'tip' jars/envelopes everywhere. *Bed was hard and wirey *Visible hairs on sheets (and NOT my hair) *Terrible internet service *Horrible breakfast--limited options. Small and dirty space. Cold cereals were stale. *Received a phone call/voice mail the afternoon of our pending arrival wanting to know what time we would be arriving. It was a non-refundable room, so not sure why this was any of their business. Overall, just terrible. I haven't had a hotel stay like this in a long time. Oh, and did I mention that we were there for the Mackinac Bridge Walk (2018) and the room was $300/night?? More expensive than a Ritz Carlton. But hey...I booked it. Just thought we would get something different than what we did. Would NOT recommend at all.

Great customer service!!!

I wish I would have gotten the Ladies name that was working the front desk on 6/26/17. We were placed in a room with a connecting door to room next door. Half way through the evening we discovered we had screaming children and parents next door. There was alot of yelling, crying and trowing of things...you know all the fun stuff of traveling with little ones. We went to desk and asked if we could be moved. We didn't want to complain we just wanted to be moved. We had that in 2 minutes with no worries at all. This place is clean and close to ferry dock. It also was a short walk to downtown. This was our second stay here and will not be our last!!!

Pros: Good price and convenient location.
The hotel was comfortable, and conveniently located across the street from the ferry to the island.
