  • 7.8

    Staff friendly

    Breakfast start time was moved to 7 instead of 6:30 and I had to leave at 6:30

  • 7.8

    pet friendly pool is open late

    outdated, but perfect for low priced option

  • 6.2

    The location

    The pool was out the whole time I was there. The customer service was not that great... The shower got crazy hot at times...overall for the amount I paid it was not great.

  • 7.4

    Room was good. Price is what brought us there. Good location. Clean

    Not enough clean towels. No hot tub in pool area. Breakfast needed more options. Terrible water temperature fluctuation in the shower. Parking lot was hard to maneuver.

  • 8.2

    Enjoyed the hot tub in the room. Enjoyed the hot breakfast.

    The pool area was somewhat dingy, especially the roof.

  • 7.8

    great location,close to town, but out enough that is was very quiet. enjoyed the pool.

    kind of dark in the room, lighting not great.

  • 5.0

    Rooms were very clean.

    Rooms are pretty outdated for the price they ask.

  • 9.2

    location was good, staff very friendly.

    The pillows had a strong odour of greasy head, wanted to go buy new pillows. They should be changed!

  • 7.0

    Clean rooms, mostly kept up, nice easy check-in, nicely sized rooms, nice breakfast (not just breads and jams).

    Door opened to outside, not quite as safe feeling, some nicks in the wall and trim, mold in the upper corner of the shower, not-fresh smell when we turned on the air, would have liked a suitcase caddy in the room, would have liked more towels in the bathroom.

  • 7.8

    Staff was friendly, hotel is close to the downtown and ferries to Mackinac Island. The price was correct for what you get. Breakfast included.

    Breakfast hours are very early, 6:30-9:00, which provides good motivation to start the day but it is vacation. Food itself wasn't great, but decent selection. Sausage links especially were soggy. Can hear some noise from neighboring rooms.

  • 7.4

    Everything was clean and comfortable. It was an older hotel but is well maintained. They also put out a nice breakfast in the morning.

  • 7.4

    The beds were comfy. The location was close to town but not on top of everything. The breakfast was pretty decent.

    Even though there was a sign in the shower warning of fluctuations in the temperature, it was a horrible experience. I didn't even let my kids shower for fear they'd be scalded. Not sure why that can't be fixed. I've never experienced that at any other hotel I've ever stayed at.

  • 10.0

    Privacy and cleanliness of the property and room.

  • 7.8

    The staff was awesome.

    The pool was kinda dirty and cold

  • 9.6

    Clean, attractive, but not fancy, room for a good price. Excellent breakfast.

    One family coming in late kept checking that their car was locked by double clicking their remote, thus the horn blowing. One check would have been enough! But that was not the fault of the hotel management.
