Located on the Main Street...close to everything. Great lake view patio/bar for relaxing & entertainment... whether staying at hotel or just dropping in for meal/drink. Dinner was excellent & patio food looked great too. Rooms spacious & clean/comfortable, recommend 4th floor to avoid hearing creaking floor on lowers levels. Front desk staff friendly & helpful...inquire about discounted rooms, typically they... More

We asked our young boys at the time 8 & 10 if they would rather go stay at an amusement park or go to Mackinac Island and to our surprise they chose Mackinac Island. To this very day it is still their favorite trip. The hotel room that we rented was huge and it had a balcony over looking the... More

We love, love, love The Chippewa. This visit was perfect. Our family visits the island several times a season. My son requested a stay at The Chip for his 21st birthday. The staff is super friendly. The rooms are perfect. They are clean, up to date, well equipped. Our 4th floor room overlooked the harbor. We always had a great... More

You must stay here!! Clean rooms and friendly staff. What a BEAUTIFUL view! Breakfast included fresh made donuts with a vanilla sauce, delicious! The harbor view suites are quaint and quite accommodating; the mints at "turn down" were a "sweet" touch. Don't ever change Chippewa Hotel; I can't wait to visit again, and again, and again!

We were first timers to this hotel. The location was perfect. We stayed in room 408. The room was clean, well laid out and had an amazing view of the harbor. Three couples stayed in this room. There was plenty of room fir everyone. Can't wait to go back!

Very nice place to stay on the island. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. Our room was small, but adequate. When you visit a tourist town you don't spend much time in your room, so this was a great place to stay. Way cheaper than The Grand Hotel!!!

My son was married, on Mackinac, June 21st. The bride/groom, myself and many of our guests stayed at the Chippewa. We had been there, one time prior, and liked it so well that we knew we wanted to stay there again. The wedding reception was held there, also, at the Pink Pony! Everything was wonderful.....the wedding coordinator was fantastic, the... More

We loved our stay at the Chippewa! Upon checking in and letting them know that we had just gotten married, we got a free upgrade to a harbor front room--so lucky! The room was clean, the view was amazing, the bed was super comfortable, and the food and drinks at the Pink Pony were divine.

OK hotel in a beautiful place. Rooms can be big and a bit oddly laid out. Our bedroom and bath had no windows. On the other hand, the configuration kept us from hearing the partying that was going on at the dock just out back of the hotel. The hotel staff was great about getting our bags to and from... More

I was very pleased with this room. I had a small, street view room which served me just fine. It would be large enough for two people, provided you didn't plan on spending much time in your room besides sleeping. The prices of the room was very reasonable for the island. If you want to upgrade, the rooms across the... More
