Very reasonable rates. The kids had a great time at the water park, and the attendant there was very friendly. Good free breakfast as well. This was our second time at this hotel and we're planning to go back."

Our recent stay was pretty good. The room was adequately appointed, linens were fresh and clean, and the pillows comfortably abundant. We had a lovely view of the lake and Mackinaw Island, courtesy of our room's balcony. Unfortunately, there were a couple of things to critique. Our room (#411), only had two working electrical outlets. The others were loose and...

This is a very nice place to stay. We had a room right on the beach-the sunrises are amazing. It just needs a few easy fixes-new outlets and minor repairs. The staff were so friendly and accomodating-I would definitely stay there again.

I have stayed at the Fairview Beachfront Inn many times rooms are always exceptionally clean and staff is very friendly accommodating to my family. I have recommended the Fairview to many friends over the years and everyone who has stayed also had a wonderful stay. Will always be my hotel of choice in Mackinaw and admission to the water parks...

Major scam! I made a reservation and held it with a credit card. Website says “Guarantee Policy- Your room will be held until 7:00 AM the morning following your scheduled arrival date.” I arrived at 10pm, and the desk agent informed me that my room had been given away. Excuse was that they called my office number that day and...

I am sorry about this inconvenience you experienced. The hotel tried to call several times and the card we had on file was invalid. When you arrived the front desk, the front desk representative, spent an hour and a half trying to find a room to accommodate you. The hotel was able to locate a room for you. We are...

After some glitches, the manager was very helpful and did make up for some problems. However, the room was musty, although clean, and very outdated. Beach was great and pool was okay. Had to walk to the next hotel for the free breakfast, which was delicious to start your day. Hard to get in and out of the parking lot...

Loved sitting on the balcony watching and listening to the water. My daughter and I loved the hot tub by the pool. Staff was nice and our room was perfect. I loved drinking my morning coffee on the balcony while enjoying the beach view.
