We stayed at the Harbour View Inn with our kids and granddaughters for one night. It was pricey at $306 per suite, but then everything on the Island is pricy during "the season". The rooms were in the annex and were very large, with a separate sitting room with it's own TV and hide-a-bed couch. The bathrooms were decent with... More

I did not know what to expect after reading the reviews and the contrasts. Our room was small as was the bathroom, however very comfortable. The bed was so comfortable after a long day on the island. The room did not have air conditioning, and we were fortunate that the weather was in the hi 60 lo 70. There was... More

We've staying on Mackinac Island 4-5 times before, but this was our first time at the Harbour View Inn. When I made the reservation the website stated that I received the last room, so we were relieved to get a room and for just around $200/night before all the taxes. The inn is a short walk from the ferry docks... More

We are pleased that you were able to experience our property during your recent visit to the island. You are correct that the island has its own "glitches" with technology at times, thank you for pointing that out. We too like our location being right on Main Street and a short walk from the downtown hustle and bustle. We welcome... More

I will begin and end this review on a positive note, but this review is meant for you, the potential guest, so you will be fully prepared to decide on whether or not you wish to stay here, and it is meant for the owner/managers, so they can make necessary changes. Melonie is a superb employee of Harbour View Inn.... More

This is a beautiful old hotel located just a ten minute walk from downtown. Our room was very clean and nicely decorated. It was a bit small and we needed to rearrange the furniture to make it easier to walk around. It had a small balcony and looked out into the garden area. We enjoyed being able to rent bikes... More

It was our first time coming to Mackinac Island. (And we learned that is is pronounced Mackinaw!) I had gone on line to try to secure a hotel reservation just 10 days before our arrival and to our surprise most of the hotels were booked. The very few hotels that were not booked had prices significantly higher than what we... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Harbour View Inn while we were on the Island for a wedding. The location is excellent. It's close enough to downtown, yet just far enough away to be quiet. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The front desk staff was extremely helpful with all of our questions. Our housekeeper left us... More

We had noticed how lovely this hotel/ bed and breakfast was on previous visits to the island, so we were looking forward to spending the weekend there for friends' wedding. We were not disappointed. The hotel has preserved it's history while keeping it in first class condition. It's just a short walk to town. The staff was friendly and efficient.... More

We stayed at the inn while the friends we were traveling with stayed in the B&B both rooms were nice, updated, and clean. Our luggage was taken from the ferry directly to our room. The staff was pleasant. The breakfast was standard. The location was perfect. Close to downtown but not as far as mission point. Everything is within walking... More

The hotel is very nicely located just a little outside of the main part of town which is nice since downtown can get a little noisy in the evenings (but fun!). It's probably only about a two to three minute walk to the east side of town. From our room on the front side of the hotel we had a... More
