We were in Alpena so decided to make a quick trip to Mackinac City for two days - Wed-Friday. Front Desk was nice. Was somewhat apprehensive due to poor reviews. Hotel could stand some refreshing to rooms. Some wallpaper was coming off the wall, a cable wire was sticking out of the wall next to sliding door and probably why there was a chair there to hide it--needed the chair to sit on to watch TV- no comfy chair to sit on. Bathroom tub was clean but evidence of age- no bath rail which is now almost a must for all hotels- strips on BR tub for non-slipping- not health-wise clean???-it was coming up- has a small frig- on floor-otherwise clean sheets and carpeting was OK-I should have asked for a first floor as hubby has a bad knee/hip and had a problem with climbing 20 stairs to second floor. It would be VERY helpful with a note in room as to where the ice machines are-had to walk down to first floor for that-Breakfast room OK- nice selection. Just a note- it is NOT in the hotel- it is a separate area/building in the middle- so be prepared to walk downstairs again-EEEK. Oh yes, the website is WRONG about coffee in the lobby 24 hours-NOPE. Only in-room coffee. That is one reason I booked here, - Would we stay here again? IF we had a first floor- riverview. However in looking into other rooms-there are MANY- while cleaning was going on, my answer would probably be a thumbs down as those seen did not appeal to me. I guess I am somewhat a neat freak, but not critical. I see it as I see it and I can take some downers, but above ALL, things MUST be clean. Bed check, floors, BR- dirty phones, etc. as I will not stay at a hotel that is not clean. The price was right and surprised-BUT I would not pay the going rate for our room for the weekend--almost double--sorry. Money also is a factor for the buck. So, I guess-----check out the room FIRST b/4 you sign for the keys. Better safe than sorry.
