Very noisy, (July 4th weekend) very THIN walls and floors. Way over priced @ $230/night! Fair breakfast, very crowded, way too many kids, (holiday weekend?) Too close to the highway, lots of traffic noise.

Happy Fourth of July...yes, we were very crowded with families and children, it was a holiday weekend. We are next to the highway, but next time you come for a visit, we can suggest a room on the West end...lower numbered rooms...401-412. Thank you again for your review...every comment helps GM

One of our best deals. The first of the two nights was a free night we'd earned through Hotels.com, and we extended our stay for a second night. The room was very nice and clean with a small outside balcony and a comfortable King bed. The indoor pool was also very nice with a pleasant water temperature (a bit humid...

In town on business and found a great place to stay. Friendly staff clean room. Pool looked inviting although did not use but many did. Did not eat free breakfast but many did take advantage of it Would certainly stay again if in town. Did not disappoint.

Having never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express, we didn't know what to expect. Room was large and clean and had a mini fridge and microwave and bed was very comfortable. Ask for a room with a balcony view of the Mighty Mack bridge. Breakfast was decent but included in our $110/night price. This hotel is closest to the bridge...

Visited the hotel again after a year. The place looks great,it's clear that it's been remodeled. Spacious rooms, very clean. The only downfall is the there is no useable internet on the second floor. It doesn't connect even after using the right password. When it does connect, it still is unusable. Other than that this is a nice hotel.

Thank you for your review and thank you for noticing our recent remodel...headboard, night stands, lights, desks and chairs. As for the internet...I do apologize, we keep adding more hot spots, but it seems to not keep up with the demand...of a full hotel. We hope to see you again on your next trip to Northern Michigan!

Our stay was just one night but everyone was so kind. The breakfast was one of the best of our trip. The staff both front desk and support staff were top notch. The housekeeping staff worked so hard to make sure everything was super tidy. We would stay again.

We have a little dog and have stayed in many hotels with him. Sometimes we sacrifice cleanliness when we travel with him but this hotel was clean and friendly. We even received a small welcome bag for our puppy that had a treat and potty baggie in it.

I'm sorry you felt the rooms were crowded...and they are. We do have a true two room suite, but it only has one bed. I understand you needed more room and more beds. Next time you come up for the Star Gazing...give us a call...and see if we cant get you the suite with an adjoining room. thank you GM

Getting ready to checkout and hotel was good/ clean but the bed in room 318 is the worst I have ever slept on. I am still trying to remove the spring from my back. Little disappointed. Breakfast was good. Staff was friendly. Just a bit grumpy due to the bad bed.

I'm sorry for the bad bed in 318...we took your note and inspected that room and you were correct, it was pretty soft...and we replaced it. Thank you for the other notes on our good breakfast. Please come back for another visit. GM

We have stayed at several "hotels" in the Mackinaw City area and none of them have measured up to the positive experience we had at this establishment! Kind, friendly, and accommodating staff in addition to a decent priced 2-queen bedroom got us hooked immediately. The free breakfast was also pretty good and the coffee was too. You won't regret staying...
