Everything was fine except a tour group monopolized the breakfast area the next morning. The staff was really great keeping up with their demands, not missing a beat for the non tour guests.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quietman Comfortable room and great staff
We arrived on 6/10 and checked out 6/13. Our room was comfortable and had many amenities including a refrigerator and microwave. We were originally going to check out on the 12th but decided to stay an extra day. The staff was very helpful and extended our stay with no problem. I would recommend this Holiday Inn Express to anyone staying in the Mackinaw City area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terrytraveler Comfortable room and dog friendly!
We had a great time in Mackinaw City and part of that is due to this nice room. It was clean, roomy..except for a little cramped in the bathroom, but very doable. The breakfast had a lot of nice variety and the staff was helpful and pleasant, especially the breakfast staff gals! Our small dog was welcomed by the staff as well, and he enjoyed the new smells..like the cinnamon rolls....and the new places he could explore, like Fort Michilimackinac. We would stay here again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hemingway Interesting view of the Bridge
We had an interesting view of the bridge until the fog rolled in and completely obscured it! Not a typical Holiday Inn Express, but the usual décor, beds and amenities. Reasonably priced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mattszuk3 Good for Business or Vacation
I have stayed at this hotel many times for both business and vacation. Staff has always been accommodating. Location is such that there is some noise but it is not bad. I enjoy the balcony and if on the north side of the hotel, the view of the Mackinac Bridge. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Great place to stay!

From the counter staff to the manager on duty to the breakfast attendant and the maid service ... everyone was great! A large school group was there one night. The manager on duty addressed their group and made it very clear what the "ground rules" were for a happy stay at this property. Consequently, all were very well behaved and our stay was more pleasant as a result. I can't say enough good things about our stay at this property.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tourist 1 Dirty, hair in bed, staff unfriendly, no parking
An overpriced hotel because of location to the Island. The hotel staff is unfriendly and talks with each other and laughs acting as if you are interrupting them. The beds are uncomfortable and appear old and worn. The drapes are too short so the room is light in the morning and the carpet seems grimy. The room smells musty and has a faint smoke odor. There was a large long black hair in my bed as I always inspect my hotel beds prior to sleeping. The staff was non caring and just wanted my money when I left.

We stay at the Mackinaw City holiday Inn Express at least a couple times a year... The staff is friendly, helpful, accommodating, which makes it a pleasure to stay... like visiting friends!!
The rooms are always clean and comfortable, and the breakfast has so many choices!
This is the ONLY place we stay when visiting Mackinac, mostly because of the friendly, caring staff!!

Had a great stay! Thank you!
Had a very nice king room with a view of the Mackinaw Bridge !Since we were there to run the bridge race on Saturday a.m. it was so nice to get a great picture the night before. Room was great; staff were friendly. Coffee available early and breakfast are always a plus for us! Your cinnamon rolls are the best treat ever! We also enjoyed the hot tub in the a.m. after the race!

Your hotel meets all the requirements for a guest to feel "right at home". Also the experience leads to the desire to return again when my wife and I are in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dan14777 Stay at Holiday inn express
I enjoyed my stay at the Mackinaw City Holiday Inn Express. We were traveling to the UP to see our son at Michigan Tech. We also stayed in your Motel on the way back as well, same experience. The only question I have is I am a member of IHG, and forgot to let the person know at check in, is there any way to get the points added to my account?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Poney5 Quiet, clean and friendly.
This was without a doubt the best Holiday Inn we have stayed at. We always try to stay at Holiday Inn Expresses when we travel, so we've stayed at a lot of them. The employees we came in contact with were helpful and friendly and steered us to a wonderful restaurant nearby. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet. I will definitely stay at this one again.

We were forced to stay the night in Mackinaw City due to a flat tire. When we arrived at your facility, the staff were kind and caring and made two tired ladies feel welcome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sparkler8666 The Service & Pool Went A Long Way
The two best things about the place were the staff and the pool, but there were many other positive aspects to our stay as well.
Staff- Every staff person I had even a minor encounter with impressed me with friendly smiles, energy and willingness to go above and beyond, from front desk to breakfast room attendant to housekeeping. At the same time they were obviously not just being fake, but felt comfortable to let their personalities show. That says something about management.
Pool- It was warm without being hot and was deep enough to really swim in it. Definitely more of an adult friendly pool which was great (though there was an adequate shallow area, the drop off starts a little bit before the float rope, so parents beware.) Oh and the Jacuzzi was perfectly hot with very strong jets.
In addition the beds were comfy, the bedding smelled fresh and felt soft to the touch, the room was nicely cleaned, the hotel was supposed to get me an extra 1000 points on my IHG club and the room had everything we needed.
A few small negatives-
1. I hate the cable or satellite offered by the two Holiday Inn's I stayed at in the UP. There was no way to see what was on each channel, no info guide, so you had to wait for the commercial to be over to see what was on each channel. It was very time consuming and annoying.
2. The room was smallish, and they could probably have offered us an upgrade as the hotel wasn't very full. I was kind of hoping that my IHG membership would get me more perks.
3. Oh, and this is probably petty, but when we checked in there were cookies at the front desk, but we weren't offered any. Some other people came up while we were checking in and had some kind of paper they handed in to get theirs... I thought hotels offered things like that freely to make people feel more at home, so I was confused.
4. I don't see the IHG points registered yet, but it seems like they take awhile so I'm not too worried yet.

I was here for business. The hotel is much like any hotel when if comes to most everything. The thing that stood out here was the staff. They were fantastic. They made the stay exceptional. I would go back to this hotel because of the staff.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Was a frequent customer Refusal to adjust bill
Refusal to adjust bill, they charged me 3 times. I told them that I needed the bill split between my team members. They told me that they already charged my card and there was nothing that they could do.
Simple solution : Credit me back the money and then use each of the credit cards to pay for the rooms that were booked.

The hotel has had a needed"face lift" that incudes fresh painting, new carpeting, and improvements in the pool area. It is very nice, tasteful and clean. The staff from the front desk, to the dining area staff and cleaning staff were all excellent, thoughtful and prompt.
We received wonderful care.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Triple5's Great Front Desk Staff
We were very happy with our recent stay. The front desk staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were happy with our room and experience. The breakfast was great, the quality of the food @ the Holiday Inn Express was exceptional considering that it is a basic continental breakfast, but with a really cool pancake machine!
We were disappointed in the pool area, some of the areas were dirty and it looked a bit run down, but I am sure that it will get a facelift and cleaning soon, now with winter ending. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will return.
