My husband and I visited Mackinac Island and the Harbour View Inn for the first time in August. What a wonderful experience! After arriving on the ferry, our bags were delivered promptly to our room by the hotel staff. The hotel itself is situated on Main Street, only a short walk to restaurants, the harbor, etc. Our room was perfect!... More

We were very happy with our choice to stay here. It's a lovely place with good service. The room was spacious (carriage house king), and the breakfast satisfactory. The luggage transfer system between Sheplers ferry and the inn is great; you drop your bag with someone at your car and it ends up in your hotel room. (it's slightly tip-mongering... More

I'm going to start with the cons, because they were minor. The internet was spotty at best, non-existent at worst. My parents TV didn't work, and to my knowledge, that was never resolved to their satisfaction. Lastly, if you're looking to be in the center of all the action, this hotel is not for you. While it's downtown, it's just... More

Reserved the room at Harbour View Inn with another travel website. We paid a bargain price and felt like we got the bargain room. While listed as recently renovated (yes, there appeared to have been updates and the rom was clean), the room was small in size (limited by the dormer arrangement) with the sink in the room, not the...

This is an absolutely gorgeous property in a great location a short walk from the historical sites and activity on Mackinac. Suite was large, modern, well appointed, and immaculate and the bed was heaven to sleep on. Bikes -- the main source of transport on the island -- are available for rent at the front desk. If I had a... More

We stayed at the Harbour View Inn for one night and wished we had booked more nights. The staff is exceptional, ready to assist in any need. Bikes are available on site and are adequate for the easy 8.2 Mike ride around the island. A flat tire was quickly remedied with replacement brought to us on the trail. We will... More

I liked the experience. The room was nice with a small view of water. Room was of manageable size, and not overwhelming. All amenities in the room worked fine. The staff was quite friendly and courteous. Staff was also efficient and responsive. The cleanliness was excellent. Also, the hotel looked as if it was quite new. It is very close... More

This is a very well centrally located hotel to walk to the town center or take the hotel bike rentals around the island (which you must do!). They porter your luggage and deserve kudos for timeliness. This is a wonderful hotel with a great breakfast buffet.

This was our first time in Mackinac Island and made our reservation only about a week prior. We were very pleased with our accommodations for many reasons. We were there the week of the 4th of July and there were a lot of people! On an island where there are no motorized vehicles, we did a lot of walking. With... More

Wow! We are so happy that you picked Harbour View for your first trip to the island! What a fantastic memory! The fourth of July is always a busy time, but it sounds like you had a great time and took in all the island has to offer. Bringing your bikes over is a great way to save some money,... More
