An older family owned hotel with great view of Lake Huron and comfy beds. Great inland stay for visiting Mackinac Island. Ferry is 5 minutes drive down the street. Pros: friendly service, comfy beds, decent continental breakfast, great view from the room patio, very close to the Mackinac Ferry. Cons: super small toilet seat in the big bathroom (normal male...

Stayed for three nights and were happy with the trip. The room and linens were very clean, king size bed was exceptionally comfortable, and the lake view was wonderful. It's an older building, no air conditioning in the hall ways, but I think they've done well in keeping it up. Breakfast was pretty standard, based on chats with other guests... More

Had a room with 3 queen beds, fridge, microwave. Beds were firm but comfortable. A/C kept room at refrigerator temps. Large, spacious rooms.

We were very happy with our accommodations. The room was very spacious, with a microwave and refrigerator and a private balcony overlooking Lake Huron. The price was much more reasonable than any other lakefront/lakeview hotels we checked into. We were able to watch a beautiful peaceful sunrise.

This place is old...clean, yes for the most part except for the dust in the rooms. They could stand to get new sheets as both beds had sheets with stains on them.
