It was much nicer with a view of the lake. It's always nice to start the day with a good breakfast that you get at a Best Western. The hotel was sold out and I recommend making reservations for this location. The proximity to Mackinac Island and other activities is perfect.

Always fun to stay where you just open up your sliding door and the beach is right in front of you. Lot's of chairs and chaise lounges. Picnic tables too. And the indoor pool and spa were lot's of fun too.

This hotel was a disappointment and if you can't climb stairs, don't go; only one elevator far from most of the rooms. The staff could care less about us. Maids never left everything we needed, front desk rolled her eyes at me once, and the breakfast lady who served the same thing every day, wouldn't talk. Our room was dealing...

We spent 4 nights here and chose this hotel because of the location. Definitely Overpriced! Room was just okay. Dated decor, but clean. Housekeeping staff was very good. Breakfast was all right but the same every day! Food service staff was very personable. Front desk staff was VERY POOR and not hospitable. They need serious customer service skills! They never...

My wife & I stayed here for just one night after being on the island. We did not have lots of rooms to choose from when we booked the room, so we could not really be picky. Because we wanted a king size bed, we selected a whirlpool room. The room had way too many pieces of furniture in it...

Room inside was clean, but nothing special. Private balcony was in need of cleaning - spider webs and dead bugs everywhere. Air conditioner runoff has made the outdoor carpeting moldy. Harbor view had a big pipe coming out of the sand that detracted from the view. The concrete pier/parking lot to the left got in the way of the sunrise....

Location was ideal, rooms were clean and spacious with ample amenities, staff was friendly and efficient. They even offered discount coupons to restaurants and attractions in the area... Including the ferry! Great view of the bridge from our deck. Walking distance to shops and boat docks. Beach was very nice, water a bit Stoney at the shore, which is typical...

Used my visa rewards to get a King Jacuzzi room and the view is amazing! The room featured a private patio with stairs to the beach. Across from the hotel are restaurants and attractions. This is more like a motel feel on the outside (doors open to the outside of the hotel) and the halls had some wear and tear....

Front desk inexperienced, need to brush up on people skills. Rooms were adequate, but the the maids did not leave coffee refills, did not leave shampoo, etc. No coffee cups either. Rooms were adequate, but not fabulous. Rooms were too dark, need better lightening. Needs updating.

Great room, great view, and overall pretty good housekeeping. The workout area was rundown, though. Would stay here again. Room was a really good size for our family and the beds were really comfortable.
