Cheap place for Mackinac Island trip.
The 2-story hotel in the back of lot was in poor shape. The structure seemed to be falling apart. My unit wasn’t numbered and the door was very sticky. They didn’t leave any coffee for the coffee pot, but I got a cup at the front desk. Service people at the front desk were friendly. The cabins in front appeared to be newer and in better condition. The free outdoor pool was dirty. It is within walking distance of food and on Friday night, Mackinaw city puts on fireworks at 9 pm right across from the hotel. Cheap stay for your trip to Mackinac Island.

Super awesome.
The customer service was exceptional. Kind and helpful front desk staff paired super nice ancillary staff made our stay excellent. The room was dirty. That was the only downside. It was really dirty.
