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.
