We stayed two nights at this hotel and it was great. Close to the bridge, the dock to catch the ferry, room was clean, area was safe, and the staff was friendly. Variety of breakfast choices, given covid. Great restaurant within walking distance. I would definitely stay there again on another trip to Mackinaw City.

Room Tip: Rooms on the North side probably have a better view of the bridge.

Yes, this hotel is noisy inside and out. Cars park right up to the building, motel-like, and inside construction is cheap and inadequate. I guess it's an older design. And of course it hasn't been a good year for hotels, especially many in heavy tourist areas. I've by necessity had to travel during this last year, and noted that most hotels used the downturn to freshen up rooms, and address longstanding maintenance issues. This hotel was NOT one of these. Despite most of the hotel staff NOT wearing masks (signifying to me that they were fully vaccinated), the hotel has kept in place cost-reduction items for no good reason. The usual Holiday Inn Express breakfast was still a sack of less than desirable breakfast items. Our room had a dirty carpet (the bottom of my feet can attest) and the bathroom shower was covered with heavy mold areas. Really? And the biggest issue that management said wasn't a problem? Rear doors to the parking lot and adjacent hotel had broken locks and the usual "swipe key" to open isn't necessary. This is a serious safety infraction. Sadly management didn't see it this way, even more discouraging. Find somewhere else, please.

I stay at this hotel every year for a night after staying on the island. It's the best hotel in this area. I will be back this summer as well. And for the record, I could not care less whether or not your staff wears those ridiculous masks. No one in my parent's state has worn them at all and somehow my elderly parents survived the cold virus unscathed. Amazing, I know.

Hotel rooms are very nice but front desk lady has her mask around her neck and housekeeping only puts them on when they c u. Hotel is At full capacity so they need to comply and set a good example. Just saying ....

We booked last minute and we are happy with our hotel and room. The lobby is clean and check in was simple and quick. Our room was clean and there is a nice sized refrigerator and a microwave. The amenities in the shower are built in shampoo/conditioner/body wash. The mattress was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was grab and go but was really nice. Breakfast sandwiches to go as well as oatmeal made and in a dish. Overall our stay was nice and comfortable.
