    location, directly off the highway. And very closed from downtown. The pools were clean.

    Too bad the hot-tub was broken. Everything there is getting old but are still ok to use.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    The indoor pool was green and stinky with dirt along the bottom. The hot tub was empty with tools sitting in it. We had to kill numerous bugs in the hotel room. The breakfast consisted of muffins, coffee and orange juice. Not a very good selection when you are traveling with children. We were never told of the pool or hot tub not in working order and the out door pool was freezining. Very disappointed.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Very courteous staff. 45 second walk from 2 mackinaw ferries. About 4 minute drive from downtown. Well worth the money.

    Spa was down while we were there and no one working on it.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Good location - easy drive to downtown area. Could be walking or bike riding distance. Reasonable price. Clean room.

    Pool area needs some work - ceiling/roof looks old and dirty. Warning/safety signs need to be replaced. Didn't use the outdoor pool. Hot tub was being worked on so not available. Continental breakfast was only muffins, orange juice and coffee but the price was reasonable so we went out for breakfast.

    Awful shower no spray.

  • Family with children

    The desk girl was very nice and polite. Good information from her about the city.

    Hotel is old. Room for 2 queen beds are too small, little table between bed & air conditioner unit, difficult to walk to one side another. Tv old. Fridge & Microwave on the floor below the washbasin. Indoor swiming pool "horrible". We were not expecting to use the indoor pool or whirlpool but we had a little time, bad experience, jaccuzi full of spiders arround it. We called to cleaning to turn on the jacuzzi. Floor dangerous with a couple parts out of place. We cannot use it. Coming back around the pool, wall window full of spiders, all size you can think. We were afraid to use it due the cleaning. We are not going again to this place.

  • Family with children

    good service

    hotel is a bit dated, pools and rooms are due for remodeling breakfast is minimal

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    -Much better price for the room than most others in the area -Desk clerk was very helpful with lots of tips about the area -Nice location, even though it wasn't on the water. We saw the July 4th fireworks perfectly from our 2nd floor location -a few minutes walk to one of the ferry boat docks and a nice walk to the downtown core

    -Dated but fine -Advertised "breakfast" is only donuts/muffins/juice but they were tasty
