This hotel used to be nice but the rooms have suffered over the years and the hotel chose to invest in a bar area in the restaurant instead of fixing up the rooms that are in serious need of repair and restoration. The worst part about this hotel is the front desk staff. They tend to hire students who do... More

I booked the Island House for our honeymoon for next summer and was excited to get a great deal. I didn't receive the confirmation email for 15 days and when I did the price I was originally quoted had more than tripled! I immediately emailed the Island House and received no response. My fiancé called a few days later and... More

Fantastic location directly across the street from the marina downtown Mackinac Island. Staff is warm and welcoming. Rooms spotless and appointed with class and taste. Restaurant was excellent and with great service.

This hotel is very old, stairs go this way & that. I think this made it more interesting. Room was cozy. No coffee in room. Big urn in lobby, but no lids on cups so it made it hard to take back to the room. Bike rental was very convenient on site. The usually gave deals the restaurant was excellent.

My wife and I were looking for a special place to spend our anniversary and, intrigued by an Amazon two-night offer, booked three nights at the Island House Hotel on beautiful Mackinac Island, MI. Nether of us had ever been to the island before and that held its own allure. The weather, unfortunately, was mostly cool, rainy and windy while... More

We loved everything about the Island House, the location on the Island, the outdoor ambiance, our room and the food in the restaurant (lunch and dinner). WE will definitely return there next fall! I highly recommend staying here, you won't regret it.

We stayed two nights on an Amazon deal. My husband wanted a view so we upgraded and were extremely happy with our room. Breakfast was included which was so so. Dinner was amazing. I had the white fish which was delish and my husband had the prime rib which was some of the best we've ever had. We would definitely... More

I stayed here for business while on the island. It was close to the main drag. My room was very large and had a beautiful view. There were 2 queen beds, a small table with chairs, 2 sitting chairs, 4 cup coffee maker and a fridge. It appeared that the shower had recently been remodeled. It was very modern. The... More

Yes, everyone knows about that "other" hotel on Mackinac Island , famous for its porch. But, the Island House Hotel also has a beautiful porch overlooking the waterfront, with rocking chairs, tables, and a less hectic feel. We visited on a cold, rainy weekend in October, yet the covered porch kept us dry and in the evening they have fire... More

We had a wonderful time at The Island House. Even though the weather was rainy, we still didn't let it dampen our spirits. The upgrade to the deluxe suite, wonderful breakfast buffet and delicious dinner in your restaurant were unsurpassed! Thanks for a great getaway weekend!
