Strategically located to the main attractions: Colonial Michilimackinac, Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park, Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse, and the ferry to Mackinac Island. Parking was free and we enjoyed walking to all these locations. The staff was quick to resolve a snafu with our reservation (no fault of their own) and get us into our room. They were very helpful...

This was the 1st night out on a vacation to the west coast & Alaska. This was a great stay & we were not let down in our expectations. The hotel has been upgraded. This is a great choice for one night or to spend several nights. Convenient to many good places (Mackinaw Island, Upper Peninsula & northern lower peninsula)... More

We spent 2 nights here after our trip to Mackinac island for 3 days. It was clean and big rooms. Staff was friendly. The pool area is a nice bonus. Very convenient to 75 and mackinac bridge. Near downtown mackinaw and area attractions.

I have stayed her in the past and they have upgraded the carpet and furnishing. New paint scheme in hallway. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the usual Holiday Inn Express fare. Almost next to fort. Close to town. Could walk everywhere.

Stayed recently at this property. Front desk said that it was the beginning of the season for them. Too bad they didn't take the time during three off season too deep clean and upgrade. Not one of the newer upgraded holiday inn express locations. It was kinda dingy and a little dirty. I expected more from the chain.

Hotel is so close to downtown and the staff is very friendly. Location is right near the bridge and the Fort. Ask for a high floor room odd numbers and you may get a glimpse of the bridge. Breakfast is your typical dependable Express breakfast.

No reservations. Front desk greeting just OK.. Asked for room with two queens. Seem to be an issue until I showed her my img card. Her attitude changed greatly and we receive a bigger room with the queen beds. Beds OK. Breakfast was good. Room had nice view of bridge.
