This hotel is not on the waterfront, it is accross Huron road opposite the ferry docks. The indoor pool is in a seperate building and although the beds are wonderful, they are all double beds, according to the manager I talked to regarding this matter. We had to wait half an hour (we checked in at 4 pm) for our room to become available. The staff was not very knowledgeable - I asked them to confirm a booking on their system at another Hilton group hotel and they did not know how to do that. The much touted hot breakfast ran out of coffee and eggs and hot chocolate - took them almost 15 min to at least provide some coffee again. Our complimentary hand lotion was half used - not that we use it in any case, but just makes one wonder. The bathroom floor had coffee stains on it that was cleaned the next day. Not quite what one expects from a hotel in the Hilton group.

Our family stayed here one night while visiting Mackinac Island. Nothing was fancy, but we were pleased with the hotel overall. The room was clean and roomy. The included breakfast was nice and convenient. One complaint was the pool is in a separate building not connected to the hotel and it was not very big or appealing. The front desk personnel were helpful.

My wife and I stayed at this property for two nights over Memorial Day weekend. We enjoyed our stay. The Mackinaw City Hampton Inn is not the Grand Hotel, but it's not supposed to be. It's a Hilton-brand budget hotel. I believe we got good value for the money. The room was clean and quiet, the staff friendly and helpful. The hotel is right across the street from two Mackinaw Island ferry terminals, and within easy walking distance of the "bright lights" of Central Avenue. Free wireless high-speed internet in the room worked flawlessly. If I had to complain about something, and it's not really a complaint as much as an observation , it's that the lobby breakfast area can fill up quickly (depending upon guest loading). But if you get down there early, you won't have a problem. Stay here and you will have a pleasant visit.

Our stay at this Hampton Inn was very disappointing. After checking into our room, we noticed a lot of crud on the carpet and questioned the cleanliness of the bedsheets. Although we were given another room, we had problems with being able to get hot water out of the sink and shower. The toilet handle broke and the light above the bathroom sink was burned out. The guests above our room were noisy late into the night. Plus, the security feature on the rear entry door was broke allowing anyone to enter the facility. Overall, we did not like this hotel and will not go back.

Excellent location at this Hampton - we were in the center of everything. Walked across the street after breakfast in the morning to catch the ferry to the island, came back and relaxed in a room before walking around and doing some shopping. What a pleasure to leave the car parked and just be able to walk to everywhere you want to go. We're loyal Hampton Inn patrons and this hotel is one of the reasons why - Very clean, excellent location and great staff! I'd definitely recommend it.
