We checked in our hotel and the front desk failed to mention we could use 3 waterparks in Mackinaw City and she also failed to explain the rules of using the waterparks and the fact that we needed a separate signed waiver from each waterpark. The description on the website said there was sandy beach access, but it failed to...

The hotel overall was ok. Extremely loud!! People constantly slamming their doors and stomping above you. It's like there isn't even a door there. You can hear everything. Lots of drunk people come in and are loud. Do not stay here!! Loud!!!

Got an excellent deal via booking.com so wasn't expecting anything spectacular. Front desk concierge was very friendly and helpful upon our check-in and offered us discounted ferry tickets which were a great bargain. She also gave us a coupon book and patiently answered all my questions. After inspecting our room and finding it clean and bug free (the bathroom appeared...

Searched hotels in mackinaw city, saw this one and that it was killer deal for the price! WRONG. Online it said 1/2 mile private beach front.. umm the beach is on the opposite side of the road, so now I'm already not happy. After check in we go to our room and see food in the trash in the bathroom,...

The room was clean with comfy pillows and mattress. There were a few cosmetic issues; cracked toilet tank lid, scraped plaster over shower and apparently burned counter top (covered by soap dish). The staff was friendly, the beds were made and trash removed on day two and the Water Park, pool and spa were a great perk for the price....

The exterior of the hotel was rather bad. It appeared to have spider webs and dead insects are all over, on the walls and windows! They really need to have the building power washed from top to bottom. The lobby as well as the rest of the interior could use a lot of updating. We arrived early and decided to...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights and weren't too impressed. When we were there the hotel was newly reopened so perhaps they just haven't gotten it all together just yet. Floor was a bit dirty and room was smelly. After breakfast was a HUGE mess with garbage everywhere but the staff were kind enough.

Don't bother to stay at the Bayside Hotel in Mackinac City. Our room the carpet was dirty with huge stains. The blanket was stained, worn, and not sure when last it was cleaned. The bathroom was just OK, nothing special at all. It looked like in order to clean the grout on the floor tiles they merely painted them a...

Just got back from a 4-night stay at the Bayside. The women at the front desk were very helpful and friendly every time I talked with them. The room was decent, although the air conditioning was leaking in the room. It was kept clean, water pressure was good, plenty of hot water. TV worked fine, as did the small refrigerator....
