Would have given it a 5 star rating but to get to the 3rd floor, lake view room with balcony, you take the elevator then have to go down 2 small flights of stairs. We stayed for a week and had a big cooler and luggage which made our initial entry difficult. The room was nice with a table and 2 chairs great for dining. There was a refrigerator, coffee pot, hair dryer and the beds were comfy. The view from the balcony was beautiful. The sunrise on Lake Huron was breath taking. We stayed at the Hamilton Inn, The Ramada, and the Clarion Inn in Mackinaw City on business and the Clarion was the best overall. The cleaning staff was great. We'd stay again for sure!

I was initially given the wrong room when I checked in. The young lady at the desk straightened everything out and all was well. You can tell this hotel is getting a little tired, but I like its location.

"The Chippewa was delightful. We stayed in a double/twin room and it was small (as expected) but lovely. The room was exceptionally clean and well suited to our needs.. I especially loved how bright and airy it was. The staff was friendly and accommodating and our room was even ready for an early check in. Our room overlooked Main Street and we had an excellent view for people (and horse) watching. We will stay again!"

The clarion served the purpose of a impromptu weekend. We had a 2nd floor balcony on the water and listened to the waves on the shore at night. The issue was not enough convenient outlets for charging phones. But not a big deal.

The room smelled musty. The shower head had mold in the head. The walls and ceiling had mold. The wall paper was peeling. They advertise free breakfast which they didn't have. We were told they would bring clean towels and get the trash, they did neither. The location is good and they are a short walk from the Star Line Ferry.
