Wish we would have stayed here entire weekend opposed to staying on Mackinac Island! Our room was amazing the free breakfast was good and the staff was very nice! If your looking for a nice affordable place to stay then Clarion Beachfront is definitely where I would recommend!

We booked Room 421, it was perfect for the 4 of us! One side had a king bed and a beachfront balcony. There was a small hall space that separated rooms, the other room was a queen bed. The beds were so comfortable and the pillows were perfect! I have a bad neck and back so I am very picky...

All in all, a reasonably priced vacation-centric hotel. It's pretty far down the 'strip' of hotels in Mackinaw City, but that just means there's less traffic and less noise surrounding you. We arrived late but were quickly/efficiently helped by a friend desk staff. We managed an top floor room facing the lake, but were warned there would be stairs to...

I really wish TA would put a .5 rating on reviews....I use quite a few 3.5 ratings. This hotel had a good rate for a weekend night in October, especially considering the Fright Night at the Fort event was taking place, which we were unaware of until we got to town. That was why the town, and ultimately every hotel,...

We stay here often when we travel across the UP. The view is great (right on the beach), the location is great (walking distance to Dixie Saloon for dinner), we usually get a deal on the price, and we like the outside entrances to the rooms. It's generally a family style crowd that stays there. We had two awful experiences...

Very welcoming staff, pretty and clean property, value priced and in walking distance to nearly everything. The Sun rises RIGHT THERE over the water and it was spectacular! I got great pictures and it was wonderful to just stroll along the beach with my hubby. The complimentary breakfast was really really well done. (Far above this pricepoint) and went till...

The room was clean, maid service was great, breakfast was decent, nothing memorable, kids enjoyed pool area. I wish the room was a bit larger, though, it was cramped when we ate in a few nights. Price was excellent for a decent place with hot breakfast and pool. Would consider staying there again if we return to the area.

Excellent service, clean and comfortable rooms. Lots of room even for extended family. Love the beachfront, watching & listening to the water. Wonderful for relaxing and fun time away. Free delicious breakfast buffet.

While it seems that not much has changed in the past years, I still like this hotel. We had a beachfront room which was comfortable and spacious. The hot breakfast buffet is amazing! Plus we were able to get discount tickets for Sheplers Ferry to the island. The desk clerk also suggested there were certain restaurants where we'd get a...

I went to the desk and advised the clerk that there was long black hair all over the toilet, sticking to the tank. She did nothing about it because the next day after maid cleanup, it was still there. Again I told the desk clerk. Again, nothing was done. Finally I wrote a big letter and taped it to the...
