The Choice Hotels promo sucked me into this one. Do not listen to the promo come-ons!!!! It was tolerable, in spite of barely civil front desk attendant and idea of walking across street for breakfast at another motel and and and ... until we got into our beds and there was no counter sheet! Pulled back the top sheet and...

Was nice. Had one of the small cabins had king bed. The hot tub jets didn't work but they told me that. People were very nice. Maybe next time stay if really wanted hot tub to work would ask in advance. Over all clean, great breakfast next door, was reasonably rate for what I got.

Arrived at 8pm on 10-13-16. Front desk girl was rude and not helpful at all. She gave us a upper room way back in the corner behind the dumpster in the dark. No outer lights on at all. There was only one van parked in lot. Being that we are two 60 year old ladies we did not want to...

First off I should have paid attention to the reviews I read when I booked the room but gave them the benefit of the doubt. When we checked in the woman behind the counter was NOT pleasant at all it. when we walked in, we were the only ones there, the room filled up quickly with other guests. It took...

First of all, we earned a free hotel stay with all of the points I earned traveling the country. While this was a free stay, I would expect that a hotel in this tourist area would be clean and safe. Not in this case. They put us on the 2nd floor. No problem during the day but when we came...

I stayed in the motel part not the cabins on 10/7/16. The exterior is deteriorating. At first glance the inside room is nice as it has been updated with pine. The sheets on one bed were dirty and had to be replaced (gross). The wifi is non-existent. There was no soap at all in the bathroom. There was a shampoo...

We stayed at the Econo Lodge on our way to the U.P. from southeastern Michigan. We thought all we wanted was a place to sleep so the $55 rate seemed like a good deal for simply needing a place for a good night's sleep. The clerical staff member was rude and didn't make eye contact. The bed linens, while clean,...

Our room was super clean. The beds comfortable. Cute knotty pine. The breakfast was at the hotel next door. (You find that at many hotels in Mackinaw City.) The breakfast was good. Could hear the people next door in our room, if not for that this would have been a four rating.

We booked two rooms. When we arrived the one room still had the used coffee packet in the coffee maker and the pot was still dirty. The rooms were adequate but not very clean. In the other room the TV remote didn't work properly. A repair contractor came to the room twice to fix but the problem wasn't completely resolved....

Very nice clean and comfortable beds were very comfortable, hotel staff were very friendly and helpful restaurants and shops and other attractions things were within walking distance. Enjoyed having a shuttle that took you to the ferry.
