Verified Reviews of Americas Best Value Inn Mackinaw City

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"This is an old facility with amateur maintenance apparent."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The staff was friendly enough but everything seemed to be lacking. The pergo flooring was buckled and heaved as well as being slippery.The entry doors were rusty, the plastic door keys stopped working on our last day, the area directly adjoining our room looked like an overgrown pit with enormous weeds and litter. The grassy area in front of our unit wasn't mowed until our 2nd day and all the litter that was there was just ground into bits with the lawn mower rather than cleaned up first. The bathroom was outdated and had a toilet that seemed child sized. Hot water was available but required lots of patience on the part of the user. The breakfast bar had very limited offerings in spite of our having made very specific inquiries before we booked our stay. We had stayed at two other America's Best Value Motels in the past which seemed pretty satisfactory, this property did not. We checked in too late on the first day to cancel the 2nd day, but we thought about canceling anyway and just taking the loss.

"Very unclean and unsatisfactory."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Our first check in day, we had to switch rooms, the carpet was filthy, the second room bedding and towels were dirty, we showed hotel staff, the brought us a new bedspread and towels.

"Reservation was canceled by error by booking agency. Didn’t stay there."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Booking agency goofed and stupidly canceled the reservation without bothering to notify us.. Hotel personnel was very helpful in trying to help us untangle this mess which was NOT of their doing and worked very hard to find us lodging in a different place (Knights Inn). Kudoos to Carol and Karen for working hard to help us!

"Good value for the money."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Positives Great selection FREE breakfast with stay, sausage, muffins, cereal, juice, yogurt among other items. Room was clean, friendly staff, located near Mackinaw city within biking/walking distance. Areas of improvement If there are room upgrades in the future, I would like a higher quality mattress. Since I’m only sleeping there and not spending time at the actual hotel I would like a better mattress. Overall, I would feel comfortable staying here and recommending it for others to stay here in the future. Inexpensive (around $100/night) and if you’re just sleeping here it’ll do the job. I had an overall positive experience.
