Hamilton Inn Select Beachfront
Ranked #20 of 40 Hotels in Mackinaw City
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Not a bad place to stay for the price we paid but I would not pay the full price they were quoting to people on the phone. It was clean for the most part with friendly staff. The beds were kinda hard but had comfortable pillows and sheets. Furnishings in the room had been around for a long time. The bathroom was a mix of new and old...nice granite counter top but old floor tiles and chipped mirror. The sink faucet was nice, shiny, and new but the shower faucets were old and dull. The ceiling above the shower had mold on it. The pool was ok, needed a serious vacuum job. Didn't get to experience the lakeview because here was so much snow you couldn't go out back but it was probably a great view. The free breakfast was huge! More than your typical juice, cereal and bagels. Overall it was a decent value hotel but if it really is the "nicest in Mackinaw City", I hate to see what the rest of the hotels are like. Somehow I doubt it's the "nicest".

We were in the area snowmobiling and were surprised at how few hotels were open. Luckily we came across Hamilton Inn. The front desk staff were very helpful, actually outstanding.
We stayed in a King Suite with a huge Jacuzzi. The room was very nice. No restaurant nearby was open. That was the only downside. We were there with our snowmobiles and after riding all day I would have rather walked or taken a cab. There is a cab service, but when we called the cab company said the driver quit! On a good note, the restaurant was great and there was no waiting for a table on a Friday night!

Great place to stay. We didn't have reservations and they gave us a better rate than I expected. The customer service was outstanding and would come back again just because of that. David was very friendly and helped us with everything we needed. When we walked in to lobby to look for a room, he tried describing the rooms to us before we booked. Boy was he right on, the rooms were beautiful and looked recently updated. The breakfast was satisfying and the kids loved the pool and spa. Will come back.

We were in a desperate situation. They charged us $309.00 and while my daughter waited for me on the lobby, they have another stranded motorist in the room next to us for $150.00. Others with reservations paid $80. When I asked to pay $150, they refused to refund anything! Extremely rude and they took advantage of stranded motorists in blizzard conditions. Plus there was hair all over our shower and opened soap!

We stayed just one night here over a weekend trip to Mackinaw Island. When we checked in and got to our room, we found the hotel cleaning staff still inside our room and surprised to see us. The location is great provided it's right next to the ferry to the island and the prices were reasonable considered the location. It's always hard to find a decent hotel in Mackinaw city and the prices of all the hotel options seem to far exceed the quality you receive. On the plus side, this hotel has a great breakfast that's included in the price of the room.

We stayed here during the Winter festival and truly enjoyed our stay. Within walking distance to everything you want to do. Keep in mind, it's winter and we still walked. The "Out House" races were a blast to watch as well as the beautiful view from our room. Breakfast is served in morning, enough to get your motor running and hospitality was extremely inviting. Would certainly return.

After traveling for over 8 hours in blowing snow and dealing with icy roads, we were pleasantly surprised to arrive at this motel. We had planned to drive a little farther, but the bridge was out. The staff was very polite and helpful when I called to verify the reservation I had made with the 800 number and to give directions. Everything was cold outside, but our room was warm and relaxing. We had a peaceful night and a good hot breakfast to get us on our way the next day.
