They told us when we called we could not get in the room early but when we arrived they were extremely accommodating getting us in our room before we headed to the island. Clean rooms and friendly staff!

We had a great room with beautiful lake view. My only concern was what looks like a drainage ditch along west side of hotel with garden hoses running into it. It was fairly empty when we checked in but at night you could hear water running into it. In the morning it was full. Just seems a little fishy ,unsanitary and unsightly next to the lake. Thank you.

Thanks to the front desk for giving us an upgraded room from a courtyard room to a partial lake view with a balcony without me requesting it! It still offered a straight-on great view of the lake.That really meant a lot to me!

The hotel was clean, with a wonderful view. Housekeepers were very friendly and thorough with their jobs. The front desk staff extremely helpful. What kept your hotel from an outstanding rating was the WiFi service, breakfast was average, and the stairs were inconvenient(we had to walk up a couple flights and then back down just to get to our room. Having the lobby positioned in another building was very inconvenient(especially in the heavy rain).

I would probably put my rating somewhere in between good and outstanding. Staff was accommodating for any requests we had. The rooms were very lovely with a great view and ample space. We will consider this hotel again in the future.

Overall a nice place to stay. They do need to install an elevator as the trek to our third floor room was a little tedious. Breakfast was great as always. Will most likely stay there again.

Paid for the lake view and we got a perfect room to see the lights of the Mackinac Bridge and the Grand Hotel after spending the day on Mackinac Island! The front desk staff were extremely helpful in getting us our room, info and our tickets to the 1:00 Star Line Ferry. Loved the bonfire at night on the beach too. We had such a great stay in a comfortable setting. Thanks for making us feel at home!

The fourth floor balcony rooms are exceptional with their view of the lake and beyond. My room was immaculate and appreciated the strong WI-FI connection. The front desk staff offers very courteous, high-quality customer service. The Clarion offers the bonus of FREE shuttle service to Shepler's ferry which is a great perk!

Our Jeep broke down while we were up north for Memorial Day weekend 2014. Our stay at the Clarion got extended by 5 nights. The staff from the manager, Dave, to the maintenance men & cleaning ladies were amazing! They definitely made us feel at home. They were all very concerned for us & our situation & extremely hospitable. This is a beautiful hotel with an extremely friendly, caring staff. It's our new "home away from home."

The only thing I did not like was that I booked for the clarion and then was moved to a different hotel, which was an awesome hotel and I was okay with that, just if they are not open don't allow us to book them, just show the hotels that are open.

Excellent accommodations and staff. We had been assigned a room on an upper floor, but when we expressed concern about hauling our suitcases up the stairs (no elevator in this particular building), the desk clerk willingly reassigned us to a main-floor room. In fact, we didn't even need to request it; he suggested it himself. Nice coffee/lounge room where we could meet with friends. Great breakfast buffet, too!

The room was nice and had what we expected with the jacuzzi tub. I feel the room was clean and well maintained. The breakfast bar was not as nice as expected but perhaps it was due to all the people that were there. It was a large spacious area but there wasn't anyone checking tables to clean them up or keep the serving areas clean. Close to the dock for our trip to the island and the overall hotel was pleasant and comfortable.

Check-in was easy and staff was friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Tile floor in bathroom area was very slippery, especially with stockings on your feet. Bins of used bedding outside near the office when we checked in were unattractive. They were still there in the morning. The hot breakfast bar and the dining area were especially nice.

Liked the size of the room and the view. It was clean. It would be good to have coffee cups for the coffee at the breakfast buffet instead of juice cups. Would probably stay there again.

The room was clean and comfortable, the AAA rate made it an great value, and the breakfast was hot, fresh, and wonderful. All of the employees were kind and friendly. We would definitely stay there again ... and mackinaw city.com really did have the BEST rate for this particular motel.

We spent our 40th anniversary here in September. From the front desk at check-in to the check out after 2 days everything was excellent. Clean room, beautiful view, kind, friendly staff. Pool was warm with ample fresh towels. Breakfast bar was well tended and supplied. We will be back!

The room was clean and well appointed. The staff was helpful and courteous and offered information that we did not have in order to make our stay pleasurable. The breakfast bar was a welcomed amenity and provided an excellent hot breakfast for hotel guests. Over all, a wonderful getaway. I would reserve a room at the Clarion without hesitation.

Absolutely top quality! Staff wonderful and helpful. Breakfast "out of sight"! Clean, on the outskirts of town- away from the crowds. Lakeview room with balcony was fantastic with a reasonable price. We're going again next Fall!

The front desk staff were very helpful and cheerful, and our room was clean and sufficient. The breakfast was a bit lack luster, but we appreciated it being included in the price of our room.

Hotel we actually stayed at was the Hamilton Inn Select Beachfront. The rooms were clean the service was quick and prompt, breakfast was good. The 2 bedroom suites are all courtside and that was the only negative as we could not look out on the water from our rooms. The prices were great for the 2 bedroom suites.
