“Time to move on.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

We've stayed here many times over the years. We always liked staying in a room facing the bridge. The room was clean but it's time for new mattresses. I wouldn't be surprised if these were the same ones we slept on 30 years ago. No kidding, they were worn out. Our TV and wifi went out too. Another complaint has nothing to do with management. We wanted to sit outside in the evening and see the bridge all lit up. It's so beautiful and awesome. That didn't happen because of smokers. I know they paid to stay there too, but it sure ruined our evenings. We couldn't even have our window open. Sadly,we decided this would be our last stay at Parkside. We're going to find better beds, and hopefully a smoke free place.

This place will charge you extra if you are paying by credit card. I booked online and nothing on their website stated this. They will tell you upon arrival. If I knew this was their policy, I would've brought cash.

Yes, the room we stayed in was clean. Not happy with the breakfast. Hard boiled eggs, oat meals, bread and cereals. I gave it a two stars because of the bridge view. otherwise one star due to lack of information on the credit card charge, the free shuttle they said will pick us up never came. We walked to the dock.

Another great stay at the Parkside Inn! Everything was great! We stay in the large room with three beds and lots of room space too! The room was clean, the owners and staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast was pretty good too! The location is awesome, to see the bridge at breakfast and the park across the street is lovely too! We will be returning in the fall!

I had a good experience with this hotel. The manager was friendly, and the free breakfast seemed decent, though I don't eat the free hotel breakfasts (too many carbs!). It looked good and the other guests seemed to enjoy it. The hotel is right next to the Mackinac Bridge and fairly close to downtown. The hotel is right across the street from a park, which looked like a good place to spend some time. I didn't try the pool, but it looked nice and people seemed to be having a good time. Really, all I did was drive across the bridge, go to the Mystery Spot, have dinner, then fall asleep in my room. I felt like I got a decent value, though. At least I didn't get woken up by screaming kids. That alone puts it in the top 10% of hotels.

We hadn't stayed here for years. However, it is still the same, everyone is friendly, the breakfast is good and the rooms are wonderful. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would return again. We had a room with a view of the lake and park with a private balcony, definitely worth the price.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms with a view.

Stayed at this hotel for two days and it was not worth it. The floor was dirty when we walked it and the person that run this hotel had to clean the floor. We paid extra for the view and it was not worth it. The office was only open for a limited time and I was told it was because it was off season. It was June 2014 when does the season start. The pool was so cold my grandchild could not go into it. There were no bathrooms in the pool area so you had to walk to your room to change.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 Days. The hotel is really so beautifully located that the Mackinac Old Light house is just at a walkable distance along with this the room that we stayed had a view of Mackinac Bridge. The rates for the stay are also good as compared to others with such a great view.

Room Tip: Try to get the towards the front for the Bridge view
