Beds comfortable, staff friendly, room clean. Didn't like being on the ground floor. Wish the parking spots close to the ground floor rooms where each designated spots.

Great location and the staff was nice. The heat-A/C was really loud, the shower curtain hung on the bottom of the shower (GROSS!), although it was nice that there was breakfast included, it was the same thing every day and it was a bit chaotic to get your food - they should have trays to make it easier.

The girls at the front desk are all very friendly and helpful. The house cleaning lady works very hard and is very nice and friendly and our room was nice and clean. The only negative thing i would have to say is the girls doing the breakfast are not very nice especially this one lady. I asked her if there was any more strawberries and she said it wasn't her job it was the other ladies job. Very Rude. Other than that all the other staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub were clean and nice. The queen mattresses were tempuredic, but the king mattress was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan under a name i never heard of before. It was just okay to sleep on. Several years ago we had that same room and that mattress was the best. Slept like a baby. The room was updated since 2 years ago, so that was also nice to see. Overall a Nice place to stay. Maybe just go and buy breakfast across the street.

Nice location in Mackinac City- close to restaurants and ferries. Motel was old and very out dated. Breakfast was edible, but nothing was good. Terribly overpriced! I would not recommend this property.
