We have been to the Island many, many times but this was our first stay at the Lake View and we were not disappointed. It was VERY convenientely located across from Sheplers Ferry. The room was nice and had a comfortable bed. There was a portable air conditioning unit in the room, which we did not use but good thing... More

My wife and I stayed mid week from October 8th to the 10th and it was very nice. The location is in town, near the boat dock and the hotel has 3 places to eat and get drinks. If you have kids, the hotel has a very nice indoor pool and hottub. I would stay again, but I have a... More

We planned an elopement wedding here and had a marvelous experience. The staff was great and friendly and very accommodating. Andrea and John P were exceptionally wonderful. The housekeeper (Ruth) even folded our towel into a heart. Andrea assisted in the planning and was very open to answering questions and offering ideas. I do not recommend having the continental breakfast... More

We took our grandkids with us so wanted a place with a pool. This place worked out great. Ate at the in house restaurant which was a great convenience. Breakfast was okay. Certainly enough for us. Loved sitting in the rockers on the porch. Our room overlooked the alley and the flowers were spectacular. Loved hearing the horses early in... More

Great hotel on the island. It is centrally located, close to the docks, fudge shops & restaurants. While my husband was attending his meetings I wandered around the shops, which were much nicer than I remembered. After some shopping, I returned to the hotel & sat by the pool. The whirlpool was great and so was the sauna. The room... More

The Island View is really good, restaurants, staff, rooms, decor. It is very close to the ferry docks of Scheplers and Star Line. The porter from the hotel is friendly and on the ball. No errors in luggage handling for two couples and two ferry lines. Breakfast is adequate and the staff is so friendly. The desk makes everything simple... More

I've been going to the Lakeview for decades, because I like to relax in a pool for a bit every day when I'm on vacation. Years ago the Lakeview was enlarged and renovated to have a covered multi-story atrium, and a pool with a hot tub was added (also a sauna) in the center of it. It's one of the... More

Stayed here for 5 nights to explore Mackinac Island. Have stayed in many hotels and I believe this hotel is good value for money. It is clean and comfortable. A bit basic but that's all you need. The room was a good size with a large, comfortable bed. Bathroom was fine with a decent shower but the sink was actually... More

We stumbled upon this hotel and decided to stay for the night. Rooms are ok they are clean, but a bit small and outdated. Staff was very nice but it would have been helpful if they warned us of the noise level from the pool. The pool is the center and all the rooms surround it so you can hear... More
