Great customer service/staff. The waterpark affiliation in town was great for the kids and shuttle to/from the hotel to Sheppler's ferry dock was a great perk!!

We had a great room with beautiful lake view. My only concern was what looks like a drainage ditch along west side of hotel with garden hoses running into it. It was fairly empty when we checked in but at night you could hear water running into it. In the morning it was full. Just seems a little fishy ,unsanitary and unsightly next to the lake. Thank you.

We had good service and enjoyed our stay but I thought it was a little pricey for staying 6 nights. I expected the rates to be a little lower.

Thanks to the front desk for giving us an upgraded room from a courtyard room to a partial lake view with a balcony without me requesting it! It still offered a straight-on great view of the lake.That really meant a lot to me!

Nice, clean and they were the only hotel near us to keep the area between the hotel and the water free of grass, weeds ect. We read reviews carefully before choosing this hotel and we were not disappointed.

The hotel was clean, with a wonderful view. Housekeepers were very friendly and thorough with their jobs. The front desk staff extremely helpful. What kept your hotel from an outstanding rating was the WiFi service, breakfast was average, and the stairs were inconvenient(we had to walk up a couple flights and then back down just to get to our room. Having the lobby positioned in another building was very inconvenient(especially in the heavy rain).

I would probably put my rating somewhere in between good and outstanding. Staff was accommodating for any requests we had. The rooms were very lovely with a great view and ample space. We will consider this hotel again in the future.

Overall a nice place to stay. They do need to install an elevator as the trek to our third floor room was a little tedious. Breakfast was great as always. Will most likely stay there again.

Paid for the lake view and we got a perfect room to see the lights of the Mackinac Bridge and the Grand Hotel after spending the day on Mackinac Island! The front desk staff were extremely helpful in getting us our room, info and our tickets to the 1:00 Star Line Ferry. Loved the bonfire at night on the beach too. We had such a great stay in a comfortable setting. Thanks for making us feel at home!
