My dad and I returned to Mackinac Island and spent two nights at the Chippewa. We both declared it, "The place to stay." The service was incredible, and the accommodations were centrally located to everything we wanted to do. Thanks, Chippewa, for a great trip!

We had the best view from our top floor room. The two bedroom suite was large with a huge whirlpool tub. There were snacks for the kids in the evening. The patio was large with an excellent view of the harbor and island. Location was convenient to everything. One flaw, the AC in the room was not cooling off the... More

My wife and I were very pleased with the overall experience with the Chippewa. Check-in was fast and courteous. Our room was very clean and quaint with nice amenities. The restaurant and Pink Pony bar provided good food and drink in comfort. I would recommend this over the Grand for the price.

Our stay at the Chippewa was only one night. I am looking forward to returning. Our room was on Main Street and we listened to the clip-clop of the horses as we drifted to sleep and the night was ending on Mackinac Island. The room was brightly decorated, clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A surprise... More

We stayed here for a few nights. We were thrilled that our luggage arrived from the ferry before we got to the hotel. The staff was very pleasant. We were able to check in a couple hours early. They called us 20 minutes after arriving saying our room was ready. They also delivered our luggage to the room. We ate... More

I absolutely adore Mackinac Island and the Chippewa is one of the reasons. The rooms are huge (at least the suites with water views). The views are spectacular. This visit we had one of the best views in the place-corner room on the 4th floor. Location is perfect in the middle of all the fudge and shops and across from... More

On Mac Island... This is the hotel for me. Love the staff, the rooms and the views. I really enjoy it... sitting at the outside bar eating their killer fish tacos. I like the rooms on the higher floors w the lower numbers. Lake view rooms are ones for you!

Mac Isle Hotels are generally pricey. We found the Chippewa to be a considerably better value than many on the island. The staff was very helpful. Our room was large and well appointed. The location is nice and close. Chippewa provides modern amenities and a comfortable stay at a reasonable price, given the high cost of staying on the island.... More

This was our first time staying at the Chippewa. We thought the staff was very helpful and friendly. Our suite was very spacious, with decent amenities. Loved the balcony over-looking the bay. Room was very comfortable, quiet, and clean. Loved being on the edge of downtown. Very convenient. I would stay here again.

We stayed three nights at the Chippewa last week. We could not have been happier. The room was very clean, they even supplied us with samples from their spa line. We had breakfast every morning in the restaurant and drinks every night in the Pink Pony. Best place to stay on the island!!
