6/10 Good

Disappointing! We had a 4 night stay and after the first night the staff came in to clean up our room and simply remade our beds with the same bedding. We knew this because there was a stain on one of the bed sheets from our first night. So they simply remade the beds without even changing them

A Nice Getaway
I had a wonderful view of the Lake and my room was in good condition. The cleaning staff kept it clean every day. They were hard workers. I loved being able to see the fireworks from my balcony.

2/10 Poor

Sad condition
Our room was dirty the carpet turned our socks black. The screen to our patio was torn with gaping hole. The bed was not very comfortable. There sign at the hotel says feee breakfast but they did not have breakfast. I reported the screen to the cleaning room service when I tried to simply share this information with the hotel manager she tried to blame me that I didn’t come to them earlier. She could of been nice and handled it in so many different ways. She was shouting at me in the lobby when I left, I wasn’t asking for anything. This hotel is completely rundown and not worth the room price they are asking .

Clarion Mackinaw City Michigan
The location is just wonderful. The beds were very comfortable, the staff was wonderful. The decorating in the rooms, dated, which I don't mind, the carpeting needs a good cleaning, and some exterior cleaning. I'd definitely go there again. I don't usually spend a lot of time in my room.

Comfortable stay
Hotel wasn’t the cleanest & the staff were not real friendly but the view was spectacular & we had enough room for all 5 of us. We loved the balcony & beachfront view.

Would not go back
The hotel was very disappointing. First when making the reservations through it was indicated that we were to have a riverfront room. NOT! The room smelled very musty and the floors were damp and the bed sheets were damp as well. The room was not sanitized. Some trash left from people before us. Again, very disappointing.
