Great overnight stay

Posted 12-May-2017
A clean, comfortable, quiet room, and a larger than usual space and buffet for breakfast. This is our second stay and we will be back next time we are in Mackinaw

Excellent room on the beach. Breakfast was poor!

Posted 10-May-2017
Pros: View of Lake and Seaguels
Cons: Food! and Staff! Just offer a good continental breakfast, fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh pastries, cereals, boiled eggs, come on!
Location: Great!
Room locating on the beach was very pleasing, excellent! Breakfast was so very poor. I did not eat that stuff most of the time. In my opinion some of that stuff belong in the trash.

Beautiful View

Posted 13-Apr-2017
This is a lovely facility close to the hub of activity in Mackinac City. Check was quick and easy; staff at the desk was polite, and breakfast staff was super friendly. The breakfast itself was disappointing for the poshness of the rest of the hotel.

Close to The beach and good breakfast.

The walls are so thin you get noises constantly. Doors slamming, childern screaming while running up and down the hallway. Hotel has barely information about mackinaw island and what they did have was incorrect. Always call businesses on the island or you will miss out. And check ferry time with thel ferry line it's self the hotels posted times are 30 mins off.

Very Nice Hotel

Posted 22-Mar-2017
Pros: The friendliness of the staff was great, especially their help with my grandfathers birthday party.
Cons: Very big furniture in not so big rooms, made it really hard to get the trolley cart in and out of the room.
Location: Mackinaw Fudge, Dixie Saloon, Lighthouse, The Island, Site attractions, Mackinaw Crossing, St.Ignance , Mackinaw Bridge, Colonial Mackinaw & much more
I was very pleased with this hotel for the price that i paid. We took a family vacation and had my grandfathers 90th birthday party there in their beautiful breakfast room. I did not get to stay but a family member of mine stayed in the room that is located off the breakfast room and it is absolutely beautiful. I recommend if you can to try and get this room. The rooms were clean and beds were comfy. The hot tub was on the dirty side on Saturday but on Sunday morning before we left we did realize that they were draining it out and refilling. So it must have been time. Overall, nice hotel & great staff.

Nice Hotel, Has a Pool

Posted 12-Mar-2017
The hotel was nice and clean. There was a nice jucizi in the room and the pool was nice. There's a small gym and there's a hex in there if you want to tan.

"Routine" room checks at 3:30am

Posted 09-Mar-2017
Pros: Nice View but that is the only thing I liked.
Cons: The staff could be professional, dress properly, identify themselves as staff, and try to actually help their customers.
Location: The beach view was nice, the town is full of activities and the bridge is amazing. Stay at a different hotel besides the Hamilton.
I would like to say that we enjoyed our experience at the Hamilton Inn Select Beachfront, but sadly we did not. The Hamilton Inn made us not want to come back. Upon having to leave early for other circumstances, we packed our bags and prepared to leave earlier than expected. After latching the door and making sure all was secured, we went to bed and then around 3:30am the door slammed open against the latch. My girlfriend and I sprung awake, tragically frightened my girlfriend got on her phone and I went and shut the door and locked it up again. Upon several attempts to reach the front desk with the hotel phone, there was no answer. Nervous due to the security breach, we packed up and ventured to the front desk. A man in a Detroit Lions T Shirt and sweatpants was sitting there. I told him someone had tried to get into my room and I wanted an explanation and to speak with a manager right away. He said that no one was available and that my room was listed as vacant and that he himself was performing a "routine room check." There was nothing routine about barging into an occupied room at 3:30 in the morning. I asked again for answers and a manager and he was unable to help, instead he gave me a card to call corporate about the matter. If you want a surprise room visit at 3:30 in the morning this hotel is for you. I will tell everyone about our scary experience and highly deter anyone from staying at the Hamilton Inn. There are multiple other hotels to stay at in Mackinaw City.
