We spent two nights here and enjoyed our stay. We were able to check in a couple of hours earlier than the usual check in time, and took advantage of that to use their lovely pool and hot tub. It was deserted, so we had the chance to swim laps and relax in the hot tub. The pool is much larger than most hotel pools, and we appreciated that.
Our room was very chilly when we arrived, due to their policy of requesting that guests turn off the AC/Heating when leaving. It was only in the upper 40's outside, but it did heat up pretty quickly when turned on. One complaint I had is that the heater was extremely noisy. Thankfully, I had earplugs which allowed me to sleep comfortably. The bed was also very comfortable. We loved the beautiful lake view and the gulls and Canada geese that were on the beach.
The very friendly front desk staff assisted us in purchasing ferry tickets to travel to Mackinac Island, where we had a wonderful day.
Breakfast is served in a large dining area, but bundle up if it is chilly, as you have to walk outside to get to it. There was plenty to eat and helpful breakfast attendants.
There are a number of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, as well as numerous other hotels. Our favorite restaurant was Nonna Lisa's down the street to the right of the hotel. It was nice not to have to drive a distance to have dinner.
Would probably stay here again, if in the area. less
