Needs major updating

3 out of 5
by from Grand Rapids, Michigan
Posted Oct 2, 2016
Pros: It was a place to meet and sleep
Cons: Hours of check-in and check-out. Staff could be friendlier. Over-all it needs major updating.
Location: It was close to downtown and located on the beach. It was also very close to one of the ferries to the Island.
With a late check-in policy I called to see if we could check-in early. The person I talked to was very rude. We went to the hotel about an hour before check-in and did get in, but again the person working the desk wasn't overly friendly. The rooms were dark and outdated. There was old paper on side of one of the beds that hadn't been cleaned up. The hotel itself needs overall updating. The hotel was over-priced for the condition and the check-in and check-out times.

Close to the lake

Pros: The view of the lake
Cons: Pop machine needs to be working, carpets need to be shampooed
Location: Lots of things to do
The view of the lake was great. The desk staff during the day could be more helpful and more friendly. The evening staff was very nice

Ramada seems to have sunk a long way

2 out of 5
by from Florida
Posted Jul 17, 2016
Pros: Conveniently located
Cons: EVERYTHING! Nothing I have noted was beyond their power to correct easily and inexpensively.
Location: Mackinac Island; Colonial Michimilimackinac; lots of other cheesy tourist trap stuff.
No covered area to load and unload; no luggage carts in the lobby when we arrived; atrocious WiFi; housekeeping did not replace the Kleenex; sink plug closed and jammed and would not open; two hard wooden chairs the only place to sit; a small round glass-covered table near no electrical outlets; Patched bed covers; blankets only came up to our armpits; A/C controls did not respond; breakfast was crowded and utterly unexceptional; printer for guest use did not work. We will not stay here again.
