Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Mackinaw City
Four Star Rating!
I just spent Thursday and Friday at the Holiday Inn Express in Mackinaw City. The stay was great. We (4 adults) booked a 4th suite with a fireplace. Staff was prompt at check in, giving me a Priority Member gift bag. The hotel was a few blocks from the Ferry Docks, but within a quick drive or walk. The access to the hotel from I75 made it very easy to find. The pool was well maintained and the breakfast was GREAT compared with other Holiday Inn Express experiences. Hot buscuits and gravy and omlets were a hit. I would stay here again. The staff was friendly and maintainence staff prompt in helping us with a minor problem with a toliet overflow in our room. Four Stars in my book!
Great Hotel....friendly place
This is an excellent hotel. Not much else to say. Great breakfast, nice rooms, nice pool, although small. And there is a wonderful place to eat across the highway (audies) go there, food is great. I have stayed at this hotel twice and has been left with the same impression both times...highly recommended
We have stayed at many Holiday Inn Express's, but this has to be one of the best. I booked 2 rooms and requested adjoining rooms and when we checked in, that's exactly what we got. The people were very pleasant that checked us in and the rooms were exceptional. Very clean and well kept. The breakfast that was included in the price was one of the best that Holiday Inn has offered and it was constantly restocked without asking for something. Even included a cheese omelet and biscuits and gravy. Not much more you could ask for. The location of this hotel was perfect. Just a few blocks from Mackinaw Crossing or the boats to take you to Mackinaw Island. What else can I say.
Great Place. Simply the best Holiday Inn Express yet!
We were in town early and decided to check in before we went to the Island. We were able to check in at noon. At check in they gave a little goodie bag that had samples of fudge and taffy along with discount card for area restaurants and establishments. We were on the third floor in room 393. Great room to ask for as it's balcony is extended because it's a corner room. Although this room doesn't face the bridge, it was still a nice room. Breakfast here served extra things I have never seen offered at any other Holiday Inn Express. They had cheese omlettes, & biscuits and gravy. Nice addition to their traditional food bar which is always so good. The pool was not very big, but I like the bathrooms that were inside the pool area. Especially with kids. The pool towels had to be obtained from the front desk. I don't like that. They asked for your room number and kept track of the towels you checked out so don't leave them at the pool they may charge you if they are not in your room when you check out. The lobby decor was extremely pleasant with flower arrangements and art. Staff was pleasant and helpful. I would stay here again. My family enjoyed it.
Spiders, Spiders, Spiders !!!!!!!
I reserved a suite on the top floor with an excellent view of the Mackinac Bridge. However, insect control at this establishment must not be a priority although I am a "Priority Club" Member. Spiders were in groups on the balcony with webs and nests present. Spiders were crawling under the chairs, on the walls, on the floors, and the safety railings. Maintenance came up to spray which did little to kill them, but resulted in them entering the room. After killing numerous amounts of spiders inside the room, I felt it was time to leave. I was offered a different room without the view. This was not acceptable. My money was refunded except for about $65.00 and was also not acceptable. My husband and I did not even begin to settle. Holiday Inn's founder, Emmons Wilson, started Holiday Inn after taking his family on vacation. He wanted them to have a place like home away from home. This was definitely not like home.
I am so sorry that your stay was not enjoyable. We here at the Holiday Inn Express "At the Bridge" do indeed work hard to ensure that each guest has a positive memorable experience. I am truly sorry that the situation was not resolved to your satisifaction. While pest control is a routine part of hotel cleaning procedures, it can sometimes be hard to control the great outdoors and its natural habitants. Please let me know how we can regain your business as a satisfied customer.
Good Food, Good People, Great Rooms!!
My stay here was wonderful! The staff was courteous and friendly always greeting with a smile and warm conversation. My kids loved the hot cinnamon rolls at the breakfast bar and My husband loved the good selection of Atkin's Friendly Foods(Those low carb muffins were yummy!!) The room we were in had a nice view of the bridge and a fireplace that kept the room nice and cozy. The refrigerator and microwave in the room made it easy for me to keep my kids' snacks and bottles fresh!! We loved our stay and will be back in the summer!!
Holiday Inn Express is a wonderful place to stay!!
I came across this site and just had to say what a great place the Holiday Inn Express is.We have stayed there a couple of times and the Front Desk Staff greets us by giving out treats (to all their guests, not just us)!! You can't say that about many places!!They are always friendly and go out of their way to meet the needs of the guests staying with them.They are wonderful and we will be back!!!
Rip off - con artists Don't stay here
We booked a Hockey Group at this Dump. We had a rate guaranteed, but when we showed up they made us pay $25.00 more. The Breakfast was a disgrace. They ran out of food after 15 minutes. The rooms were dirty and the walls were paper thin. Next time, we are staying at the Econolodge at the Bridge.

Woke to find an overcast and very chilly day. Wind had a bite to it. It was 11 degrees C when we left the motel. Decided to go for plan B which was a tour of the western tip of the Lower Peninsular of Michigan rather than freezing on Mackinac Island.

Had lunch in the carpark of the welcome centre. Again could not find a bakery or buy just 2 rolls in the supermarket. Had wraps today - ham, tomato and some of the Wisconsin cheese that Madge gave us. The cheese still has the orange colour we saw last time but these cheeses ...
... a fabulous day on island. Mackinac is an old school tourist town where no cars are allowed and the only mode of transportation is horse and buggy or bicycle. We borrowed the owner's bikes and made the 8 mile loop around the coast line with coffee in hand. We sat on the waterfront for a long lazy lunch, walked up into the heart of the island through the forest to view the amazing arch rock formations and then enjoyed a waterside cocktail hour. ...
