5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

We spent three nights at the Chippewa the first weekend of August, 2013. The location is terrific and the rooms have beautiful views of the marina and the harbor. Excellent food and entertainment at the Pink Pony. Lots to do on the island. Already booked for next year. Highly recommended.

We chose the Chippewa Hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were glad we did. It was our first visit to Mackinac and we had an excellent experience at the Chippewa! My family stayed in rooms 409 and 411 which are on the Main Street side and were very pleased with the accomodations. There was plenty of space in 409... More

We Waited too long to make a reservation for our 30th anniversary. So, with everything booked on the island, we booked a room in Mackinaw City with plans to visit the Island by ferry. (Our room over there was not good!) Well, after a day of touring, we settled up to the bar at the Pink Pony and later decided... More

Stayed here two nights with family in July 2013, we reserved two harbor view suites. I have been coming to Mackinac Island since I was a child and this was our first time actually staying on the island overnight. I'm very happy with our choice of hotel, a bit pricey but comparable, the location is excellent (right downtown, you can... More

We took our 3 grandchildren and one of their friends to the island. The stay at The Chippewa Hotel was great. We had a suite with a balcony overlooking the waterfront. The kids loved the extra large hot tub. The room was clean and well appointed, the only real problem was the air-conditioning unit is on one side and does... More

My daughter and I spent a weekend in room 212 on a mother daughter trip. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got there very early at 9:30 am and they check our bags for us and said they would call our cell phone as soon as our room was ready, which they did around noon. The room was... More

We stayed in a fourth floor suite overlooking the water. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. Unfortunately, the air conditioning unit was in the common sitting room area and the bedrooms were not able to be cooled. There are ceiling fans but these did not help the matter. The view of the water was pretty and the location on... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights while on vacation in June, 2013. The hotel proved to be a great choice for our stay. The 2nd-floor suite was huge, with a nice sitting area and semi-private balcony. The view of the harbor was amazing and well worth the extra money. The staff was very welcoming and remained cheerful... More

This is our fifth year of spending four nights, we always get the same room overlooking the marina. The room is always very clean and nicely appointed. Couldn't ask for anything more. We especially like the private balconies where you can spend hours just enjoying the sites and sounds.
