This is our 2nd year staying at this hotel. The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff is very nice and friendly. No problem to check out a little bit late. There are many tv channels to choose from and a free breakfast. The hotel is close to the ferries to Mackinac Island.

Rooms are clean, comfortable and well maintained. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Beach/lake access is sandy and well groomed with plenty of lounge chairs available for guests. This is why we have returned to stay at this specific hotel for 20 years.

The folks at the desk were very friendly and accommodated us well for early check-in. People in my party all felt that the room felt very "home-like," which made us all happy. The room was clean and the air conditioning was excellent.

Would prefer if hotels would carry greek yogurt for their continental breakfast. So many people are health conscious, and there should be more choices for the ones who want to do healtier eating. Thank you.

When we booked the room online we requested a handicapped room. Unfortunately when we showed up to check in somehow it slipped through the cracks. The individuals at the front desk were very friendly and helpful, and got us into a room to fit our needs. The breakfast tasted great and the rooms were wonderful. Would highly recommend.

My family and I (a party of six) stayed for three nights at the Clarion. Everything was very nice. Loved having the two-rooms attached and a bed for everyone (instead of a pull-out sofa). Enjoyed the seats on the balcony for reading in the evening, as well as beachfront property! The complimentary breakfast was plentiful and well-run. Very nice from the eggs to the waffles (much better than most hotels). We even utilized the computers in the lobby to view pictures of a recent Alaskan vacation. Never used the pool or hot tub, but it looked clean and nice. Would definitely stay there again!

We had a wonderful time, our room was on the beachfront. We spent many hours setting on the balcony,watched the fireworks from there, perfect...Close to the boat ramp so we could walk. Our room was very clean and spaceous. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We where very impressed with the Clarion. We will go back when we revisit.

Our stay was wonderful. The room was very clean, and obviously well-kept. The staff was courteous and very helpful. We had a beachfront room with a balcony, and sitting out on the balcony and looking out over the lake was very relaxing. We will definitely stay there again.

The room was great! An improvement could be made on the continental breakfast by adding some fresh fruit and yogurt. Fruit cocktail does not appeal to most people. It was nice being able to walk over to the boat docks for the ferries.

Dave the Mgr was EXCELLENT. He went out of his way to ensure a great visit. Food great, location, great. The only cons...and I'm not nit-picking: rooms are dated & the help (besides Dave & the groundskeeper) are all foreign. How about hiring local American workers? These gals do not understand the culture, slang, etc and make many mistakes.

The front desk team and the cleaning team did a great job. The breakfast was nice and we appreciated the availability and the length of time it was open. Thanks! Overall - great hotel. We also like the opportunity to purchase our tickets prior to arriving and having them at the front desk. Though we did not have the correct tickets upon our arrival the front desk team had the correct tickets for us the next morning.
