The room was clean but extremely outdated. There is rust on everything in the bathroom. The carpet is old and smells. The furniture is very worn. We stayed over Labor Day weekend for a night - extremely overpriced for condition of the room.

Hotel was very clean and in a great location. The front desk staff were helpful in answering our questions and allowed us to stay parked at the hotel during our day trip to Mackinac Island. Be sure to get discounted tickets for the ferry located across the street.
