Tripadvisor claims it's reviews are not "cooked" but in this case I truly wonder if that is the case. This is a 1960s motel furnished with garage sale furniture. It's cheap and that is about all I can say positive about it. Our room was very small--tiny--with a heavy musty smell that immediately clogged our sinuses. The bedspread had to come from a garage sale and the mattress was saggy and worn out. Rating this place Number One for Mackanaw City implies that all of the national chain places are complete trash which I find hard to believe. If he rating scale is based on price, this place might rank No.! But we don't rate places by price. We would never ever stay here again.
