Check in off the boat was quick we arrived at 1:30 and our room was ready. Room was clean and more than enough space for 2 adults and 2 kids. Continental breakfast was simply doughnuts, toaster waffles, toast, fruit, yogurt ( however you could have an omelette made to order for $5). Why the lower rating - pool needed to... More

We spent time in July 2014 on Mackinac Island. This old style hotel looks comforting when you get off the Sheplers boat shuttle as you enter onto Main Street. It is thoroughly modern inside with spacious rooms--and as a plus, it has an indoor swimming pool. There is a very nice restaurant and bar attached with main street viewing from... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lake View hotel. We got a package that included a $100 meal voucher and ferry tickets including luggage transfer. It was worth the price and we got to stay right down town. This is also one of the only hotels with a pool. It was nice that it was indoor so we could... More

My wife and I took our family (20 people) to Mackinac Island in June 2014. The Lake View Hotel was excellent in all ways. The indoor pool, the rooms and other accommodations were very nice. Convenient location and super cooperation from the group sales people made it a trip to remember. We would do it again in a heartbeat !!

The location of this hotel is convienent, across from the dock and on the main strip. The porter we had, Cody, was very friendly and attentive. We bought the package that included $100 food voucher and Shepler's round trip ferry tickets. The maid service knocked on our door twice before the 11:00am check out time, which was bothersome. Also, we... More

We stayed at the Lake View for one night while touring the island and would go back again. Had a very good dinner in the restaurant. The rooms open to the pool atrium and are well-appointed. Location is awesome and it was a good deal for the price.

We stayed two nights and purchased a family package for both rooms. Reasonable price for time of year included ferry tickets, $100 gift card for Lake View restaurants, and various discounts at other stores in town. The hotel is SO user friendly and family-friendly! Indoor swimming pool open from 9:00am to 10:00pm to fill in down time for kids. Goodfellows... More

We stayed in 222, and the room was lovely. But at about 11:30 pm the juke box in the bar got loud and woke me up. I called twice to ask then to turn it down. No such luck. Definitely do not stay in this room if you are a light sleeper....the bar closes at 2am.

Bathroom tiles need a thorough scrubbing. As a senior, the lighting is so bad I had to use a flashlight app to find anything in my suitcase. Other hotels use energy - saving bulbs and provide better light

Well, we crossed Lake Michigan on the ferry and walked a short block to a very beautiful, comfortable, pleasant hotel right on the Main Street. Built in 1854 with updates, and decore of the age when The Island was a major getaway for the wealthy, this four story hotel is the perfect place to organize your sightseeing on Mackinac Island....
