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.

We has booked a room at a different hotel, but had issues with the establishment. We've had good luck with Best Western in the past, so figured why not. Had a beautiful room, lake side wonderful view with a patio. Breakfast was goid, but could use a bit more variety in cereal. There are many families here...children don't generally eat...

We visited during a gathering of Mini Coopers. Besides the fun of a parking lot full of these cute cars, this was a terrific place to stay. The rooms are spacious. The bedding is comfortable. There's plenty of electric outlets (important in these days of multiple devices.) Great water pressure in the shower, although you need to be careful since...

This hotel is very nice and sits on the water with a beautiful view of the lake and Mackinac Island. The room was very spacious and the decor was nice. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom. We had a balcony with nice chairs to set on. The pool and hot tub are very nice. The breakfast...

Staff was phenomenal. Always courteous, polite, and helpful no matter who we spoke with. Definitely will consider staying here if we revisit the area. Already referred this hotel to friends. Right on the beach, there are some rocks in the sand, but for the most part this is one of the nicer beaches. The view off the private balcony was...
