This was the nicest hotel I've stayed in for many years. People at the front desk were smiling, welcoming, and so efficient. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful, way beyond a continental breakfast. The housekeeping is just excellent and the housekeepers were polite and friendly and took very good care of us

This hotel is really only a 3 star. Outside view of the hotel leads you to believe its very nice. However, rooms are dated, stained carpets and overall old feeling. For the price we paid, we were disappointed. Stayed in much nicer for a whole lot less money. Staff not overly friendly, come off rude. Internet was not good, however,...

We booked a 2-room suite, which was spacious and beautiful. They placed us in Room #421, which was the highest floor and a stellar corner balcony, from which we could see both The Mighty Mac and the Lake. I wanted to stay on the balcony the whole time -- it was that beautiful. The Hotel sits right next to Arnold...

From check in to departure it was a great stay! Everyone was extremely helpful & friendly. The resort was booked full so we didn't get a lake view which would have been great. Although we received a 2 bedroom suite on the 3rd floor which was really nice and for the most part spotless. Not a huge deal but where...

We arrived at the hotel at about 8:30 am. We went in to the desk just to let them know we were there. The desk staff went out of their way to tell us about the area, arranged for a shuttle to take us to the ferry, tell us about what to see and do, and gave us coupons. Our...

My husband and I stayed here on a family trip to the UP. We had gone to Mackinac island for the day and had walked 14 miles. We really needed the hot tub to relax in. Hot tub and pool were relaxing. Pretty view of the lake. easy walk to restaurants. Large breakfast area with plenty of food. Beds were...

Its never an easy thing to pay extra money for a lake front view room. I've never stayed in one before because I figured I wouldn't be spending much time in it. This time I leaped and I promised to make time. The view was the saving salvation for this trip. We endured lousy to non-existent WIFI connection, evidently the...

We found the beds to be very comfortable and quite enjoyed the lake view. Biggest disappointment was the internet would not work unless I stepped outside the door and into the parking lot. When I called the front desk, the woman on duty was quite rude about it.

The room was large could have been cleaned a little better, I did clean it myself. But the staff is very rude! The breakfast was bad! We booked for 2 nights and on the second day I asked to speak with the manager about the rude staff, and I told him I looked at the reviews and that is why...

Looked on line and was able to get a great price for the jacuzzi king sweet on the beachfront, and was extremely impressed. Along with a great value they had a phenomenal breakfast bar, and the customer service was also very good. It will be the first place I book the next time I go up toward Mackinaw.
