We spent a girls getaway weekend at the Chippewa and couldn't of asked for a better stay! We had a suite that faced the water which was absolutely beautiful. The room was huge with a large balcony, and more importantly, so clean! The staff was great...everyone was so kind. As an added surprise, they came around with cookies, milk and... More

We had a room with a large balcony and a breathtaking view of the water. The rooms were extremely clean and the... More

We spent one night at the Chippewa Hotel with their season opening weekend special and everything was great. The staff in the restaurant, bar and hotel were top notch. Also enjoyed the one man band in the bar. The absolute best thing happened after my stay. I thought I had left my wedding rings on the night stand. I immediately... More

We just returned from our annual trip to the island and Chippewa Hotel. Every year it is as beautiful as the year before; and they are always adding a new touch each year. From big flat panel tvs, to charging stations for your electronic devises (don't forget your cords), to the newest this year.....a keurig coffee maker!!! This year we... More

We stayed in the small queen room facing the street. I really do believe it was the best value on the island. The room is perfect size for a couple. The location of this hotel is perfect. The employee's are wonderful. And the pink pony bar is located here. We will definitely be back!

Was disappointed to see that their selling point- the hot tub was not functional. I felt cheated with the false advertisement. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and the island itself was a wonderful experience.

Hi Umang B, We are very sorry to hear about your experience with us for our opening weekend with regards to the out door hot tub. This past winter was extremely harsh for us here on Mackinac Island. Our maintenance team worked very hard on getting the hotel and restaurant open on time and the hot tub was the last... More

The hotel is close to the ferry dock, restaurants, stores, taxis and tours. The view from the room was beautiful. The Pink Pony bar was conveniently located in the... More

This is our most favorite hotel on the island. We always love to get back on the island early and often during the summer. Brian is the perfect host with his staff always waiting to help. Ask for a harbor view room. Great spot to enjoy morning coffee, watch the boats and freighters, etc. don't forget the punk pony we... More

My husband arranged this trip as a surprise for our 25th anniversary and this hotel was a perfect choice. It is located right next to the ferry landing and in close proximity to all things Mackinac. Our luggage was delivered to our room upon arrival and taken back to the ferry landing when we were ready to leave. Our room... More
