The front desk clerk was very helpful and courteous. This was just a nice and neat place to stay. Clean and comfortable. Bed was great. Morning breakfast was also good. Quite a variety of wonderful breakfast foods to get you going in the morning. Give it a try....

This Holiday Inn was one of the best. The rooms with a balcony face Mackinac Island. It had a small fitness room, but a beautiful pool. The breakfast bar was average, but always had water with lemon, coffee and teas available.

I stayed for one night en route to my vacation destination. I didn't have a reservation but received an adequate rate, including breakfast. Great location at first exit before Mackinac Bridge. The room they first gave made me have an allergic response. I called the desk and they moved me to another room. The next morning, the same staff member...

We stay here for the convenient location. The staff never smiles and the breakfast is passable. The elevators are at the end of the building, so it can be a long walk to some rooms. We were dissapointed that those registering on our day of arrival received a much better rate than what we were charged by booking directly in...

Check in staff was nice, not overly informative. Requested corner room on 4th floor bridge view. Nice room/view. Would be nice to be able to turn off lights on balcony to sit out at night with no bugs.

Happy Anniversary...I'm glad you had a wonderful stay with us on a very special occasion. I'm sorry for the lights on the balcony...but it's for everyone's safety. Come back for a visit in the later fall...when it's cool...and no bugs. Thank you Mitch, GM

The hotel is nice and clean for the most part. Check in staff was friendly but not overly. There is some dusting issues especially in corners of room and ceiling, only other complaint I have is that the light from the balcony shines into room and the curtains are only sheer so it keeps room lit up.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent visit at our hotel and please accept our sincerest apologies for the dusty corners during your stay. There are black out curtains behind the sheers...to block out the balcony light. Rest assured that these issues will be looked into. We value your comments and welcome the opportunity to serve you again. Mitch,...

Most Holiday Inns have friendly front desk personnel. This one didn't. I checked in 45 minutes early, and my room wasn't available. I asked for another, and was treated by her as if it was a great imposition. She said very little, and didn't smile. She came from the back room to check me in, so apparently I disturbed her....
