Nice comfotable clean good sized room. Bed was so comfortable that I could have relaxed in bed for days. Loved the sound of horses galloping by outside. So convenient to all the sights and sounds of Mackinaw Island. We had a 3rd floor room on the street side. I would certainly stay there again! Ate breakfast in the restaurant and... More

The location of the Chippewa is perfect for enjoying the activities on the island. The service was also excellent. They pick up your bags from the Shepler's ferry and get them to the hotel without you having to worry about them. The service was also excellent and the Pink Pony is a fun place to have a beer and sing... More

After our wedding 30 years ago we stayed on the island, and we decided it would be a lovely place to celebrate our anniversary. Bart and the rest of the staff, front desk, housekeeping and restaurant were all friendly and accommodating! Such a pleasure to receive top notch customer service. Our room had a lovely harbor view, nice decor and... More

I brought my grandkids to the island this time. I had stayed here 20 years ago and I remembered it was in a nice location. It is on the main street very close to the fort. There is a little general store (Doud store) right across the street. The staff is very nice. The lobby is very busy with people... More

This is the place to stay on Mackinac Island. You have everything you need all in one place. The beautiful view of the harbor, great restaurant and bar. Also all the associates there are so friendly. This makes about 10 years of me going back which tells you how great I think this hotel is!

Our family has gone to Mackinac Island for years; however, this was the first time we spent an evening on the island. The hotel was very accomodating in letting us leave our luggage in the lobby (survaillence cameras 24/7) prior to us checking in. The room we had was very large (2 rooms with a deck) that overlooked the water.... More

The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. An extra special shout out should go to the hotel porter, Archie, who assisted us with some special baggage needs. Thank you so much for going way out of your way to make sure we received our luggage.
