I wish I could tell you what I love most about this hotel...hearing the horses ride on Main Street, the cozy rooms, the beautiful views, the patio, the amazing hot tub pool! We love this place. This hotel is also located right on the boat dock so they have steps that go straight into the water… If you can handle... More

Went here for our 25th wedding anniversary for our first trip to Mackinac. Very nice older, but clean, hotel. Loved the décor and atmosphere of the place. We had a corner suite facing the water. Great customer service, great accommodations in the room. When I reserved the room directly the week before they asked me if it was a special... More

My husband and I went to Mackinac Island as part of our honeymoon. We made our reservation ahead of time and wanted our time there to be special. We read online about a breakfast package, and extras we could add on. On the day of checkin, we were told we couldn't add them....we found that odd...when we got to our... More

This place has excellent accommodations, views of the bay, dining, and and its downtown location. Further, the staff was very good, helpful and made sure our stay was excellent even though we had to change rooms once in order to stay a total of 3 nights this past August. Way late in sharing this review, but found time during the... More

We've stayed at the Chippewa before, and this stay did not disappoint. This time we were on the Island for a family wedding. Family members booked several rooms, and everyone was pleased with their stay. Our street side room was clean, beautifully decorated, large, and very comfortable. The location is convenient to the Arnold Dock, restaurants, and shops, and the... More

My family of four (with kids age 8 & 4) stayed here in July. I believe we stayed in the 'Top Floor Queen Suite' with an amazing view of the harbor. My youngest loved watching the boats come and go! The staff was friendly and my kids loved the milk and cookies that came with the turn down service each... More

We stayed in a Mainstreet Queen room for 4 nights in September. This was our 3rd year in a row staying at the Chippewa and it did not disappoint. Our room was small but nicely decorated and very clean. I do wish there would have been a desk because I worked from the room during our stay and had to... More

Spent another week at the "Chip." in September. We met a number of folks who were making their first trip to Mackinac and had the good fortune to be staying at the Chippewa. It was fun listening to them speak of the place as though they had discovered a rare jewel. I'm sure that in addition to the hotel/view of... More

We arrived at the hotel early, but the staff(Bart-manager) was very accommadating and let us into our room early. The room that we got was absolutely gorgeous. It was a corner room with a nice view of the street, and a stunning view of the water. The room was very spacious, and had a large living room space that had... More

We went up with some friends for the Great Turtle race and Halloween with the kiddies. The staff was great. And here is the perfect example: we had a very large group and at dinner one night, we sat about 15 kids at one table. I got lost in adult conversation at my own table, when I looked over to...
