I meant to post this a few months ago when I was staying but due to some internet issues I was unable to post it at the time. I wrote this review at 5AM... First of all this hotel inside does not look anything like the pictures online showing newly redone rooms. This place is old, think circa 1995 with...

I recently spent 4 nights at The Bayside Hotel in Mackinaw City and it was the longest 4 nights of my life. I have traveled all over the world and this by far was the worst place I have ever encountered. Diamond Tours should be ashamed of themselves for putting people up in this dump! Because of this experience I...

$289.00 for a horrible stay! Cob webs all over the hotel, dirty laundry in the hall ways, very bad service, and a rotten breakfast. The whole place smelled of mold and mildew. Their website makes it look great, BEWARE!!! When we complained, the lady at the desk claimed "it's not my place!" and refused to give me the owner's name...

The hotel sign said Grand opening. Seemed like there were some details that needed tending to prior to that were left undone. There was a different hotel name on the phone and no information sheet. The beds were very firm. Breakfast is shared with the comfort inn next door and so was pandemonium. We did not have time to use...

We booked Bayside Hotel for an impromptu weekend stay with my family and grandsons. This was apparently a hotel that was once a nationally-recognized property, but fell into disrepair, and lost its franchise. Public areas were dirty...hallways, elevators, dining areas, etc. Ice machines were all nonfunctional on all floors. Our room deadbolt lock did not lock. Breakfast service was awful...poor...

We booked this hotel almost a month in advance. Not recognizing many of the hotel chains in Mackinaw City we saw where this one boost being new. This hotel is scary, not because the room was dirty (it was) or there was no soap or shampoo. It was the mold and smell from the indoor pool along with the dehumidifier...

Rooms were on the small side. Bed linen was too big for the bed. Beds when made were so lumpy in appearance that it looked like multiple people were in the bed. Housekeeping needs proper training and checklist for cleaning and sanitizing the rooms. No consistency in rooms having refrigerators. No microwaves in any rooms. Continental breakfast is in the...

First of all, we were stranded in Mac City, due to bridge closure and had to find a motel. Apparently, they opened this one up to meet the need, as well as JACKED UP the price - actually doubled the June rate of $66 to charge us $120 in February!!! Highway robbery! First we had to move out of the...

Well located. Convenient parking. We paid $70 in late October. Our room was clean, but the common areas needed some attention. This is the kind of place you would take a traveling pee wee hockey team. Waterpark. Kids can run around. Carts available for luggage. Breakfast was decent, but the dining room is adjacent to the pool so it smells...
