As a small family we wanted a motel with a view and a second floor - which we got (2nd year here and had the same room). The first year in 2005 - when reutrning from a day trip we found that the housekeeping staff had left our door open - luckily nothing was taken - but whe we went to the manager - they were not at all concerned.

This year 2006 - the rooms were acceptabley clean (have stayed at a few in Mackinaw that were not at all clean). Manager/owner very rude and unfreindly, they never spoke unless spoken to first and did not go out of there way to make you feel welcome. Was as if we were an inconveince rather than - a welcome guest. We were also charged more than the price that we thought we would be paying - made reservations on line. Breakfast bar was mostly high carb - donuts, breads etc. Only ate in the breakfast bar once and stayed there for a week. We are looking to stay elsewhere on our return trip to Mackinaw City this fall. Love the city and the attractions - finding to hard to find acceptable accomadations though. would not recommend this motel for an extended stay.

Our family went up for the Memorial weekend and had a great time. The Parkside Inn Bridgeview was recommended to us by friends and we were not disapointed. We could not ask for a better location to see the Bridge and visit the Fort and Lighthouse. The evening walk along the water with the lights on the bridge was breathtaking. It was only a short walk to downtown for some shopping and fudge.

The Bridgeview room we had was just that, a great view. Not a partial view, but a full view of the bridge and straits area. Great room and it was the cleanest place I have ever stayed at. The free breakfast, overlooking the bridge was a plus. My son loved the pool, since he could dive into the nine foot deep end, and we could not keep him out of the game room. The staff was very friendlly, and helpful. All in all, we would highly recomend this place to all our friends.

Thanks for a great stay, we will be back when in Mackinaw City.

The Parkside Inn was a great place to stay while traveling in Norhern
Michigan. The veiw of the Bridge and Lake from the hotel is spectacular.
The service was outstanding. The kids had a great time in the large
indoor pool and game room. Can't beat the location- We will go back
again, and recommend it highly.

My family and I stayed at the Parkside Inn-Bridgeview over Memorial Day weekend. The hotel was easy to locate with ample parking and within walking distance of downtown, the ferry to the island, the lakes, and Fort Michillimackinaw. Our room was clean and decently sized. The couple who run the Inn were friendly and very helpful. Overall, we were impressed with our stay and will make a point to look here for our accomodations next time we're in the area.
