“Friendly staff in breakfast room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

I read the reviews about the breakfast room, but on a Fri and Sat morning in September, the friendly breakfast staff woman made it all worthwhile. She engaged us all in conversation. Each one was greeted and included. We asked questions about Mackinac Isl. & she is thoroughly acquainted w/the area and gave us excellent advice. Thanks for the raisin bran cereal & wheat bread. The breakfst area opens out to the beach, with a patio, and it has excellent views of the sunrise. A "Kodak moment." Perhaps, some tempting muffins and juice could be served in the coffee bar in the lobby to alleviate the congestion of the breakfast room? We enjoyed the proximity to the Star Line--just walk over & get the AAA discount of $3 . Note, there is also a $1 AAA discount for the carriage tour at Mackinac Island. The pool & spa were delightful and deliciously warm on a rainy night!

Room Tip: Don't need to use their coupons for the ferry, which you need to drive to. If you have AAA, jus...

We were very disappointed with this Comfort Inn, the room was dirty and dated, not at all what the ad would have you believe. The breakfast was ok, but again the room was dirty with spilled food on the floor, etc. I would not stay here again.

We usually stay in Comfort Inns, but was very disappointed in this one. The breakfast room was a joke, it was the size of our room, actually that is probably what they did was take a room and make it into this. There were four wooden tables on one side and the breakfast bar on the other side. This room is way too small for this hotel, to get to it, everyone has to go outside, never have we encountered this before, very poor set up.
The breakfast choices were fine though
Would I recommend this hotel, NO.

Room Tip: request a lakeside room

I was wondering which hotel to choose because nearly everyone here has mixed reviews. But this one sounded OK and had a great price (just after Labor Day, $79 for 2 DB lakefront with balcony). There was really nothing bad and everything good to say. Desk clerk was friendly and check-in went fine, we were given a packet of discount coupons. Actually, there are other ways to get the same discounts (AAA, visitor center, combination tickets from ferry line for the Carriage Tour and Fort Mackinac). The room was clean, large, and had a fridge (didn't use it). There is a small balcony with a couple of chairs which we enjoyed. Beds were comfortable, ample hot water, everything clean. Breakfast was the typical free continental breakfast but including eggs and sausage and decent variety of bagels, bread, etc. and two flavors of waffles (Cinnamon & regular). Just 4 tables inside the breakfast area but about 6 more on the outside deck which is great in nice weather. And a large indoor pool which no one used anytime we walked by. It is just a short walk to the Arnold Transit dock. The sandy beach was free of goose poop, which is a big deal according to so many reviews of hotels in this area. All in all a fine stay. Not an elegant hotel, but perfectly fine and a great bargain.
