Lake View is located directly across from Star Line Ferry on the main street in downtown Mackinac. From the check-in to the check-out we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and clean (we were in a 2 queen room with a lake view) and it was equipped with a Keurig! The beds were soft and squishy (which my... More

We were looking for a nice hotel on Mackinaw Island that was in a good location but not too expensive. Lake View Hotel was wonderful! It was diagonally across from Shepler 's docks right on the far end of main street. The rooms were much more spacious then all the others we had stayed in on the island. We enjoyed... More

My husband and I stay on the island every year after the sailboat race in July. We've stayed at 5 other places on the island, before we discovered this hotel. Now this is our first choice. It is located right across the street from the Shepler's dock so that alone is awesome! I love they don't enforce a 3 night... More

Our family was extremely pleased with our stay at the Lake View Hotel. Conveniently located across from the Star Line ferry docks on Mackinac Island's Main street. Nicely updated throughout with clean, spacious, quiet rooms with very comfortable beds. The indoor pool, hot tub, and sauna were a nice addition. The dining was delicious and offered outdoor seating on their... More

Friendly and helpful hotel staff. Nice rooms and wonderful indoor pool. Love the discount coupon for bike rentals (really saved us $$). Good breakfast in the morning and great location. Will definitely stay here again!

We planned a last minute trip to Mackinac Island and chose the Lake View Hotel. Great location close to the ferry dock and the busy Main Street. Enjoyed the rockers on the decks, even listed to a live band that was playing across the street. Room was comfortable, the portable A/C unit drowns out the street noise. Cracked window seals...

Front desk staff was friendly. We were about an hour early for check in but only had about an 10 minute wait for our room. We stayed in 303 and the room was spacious and clean. The air conditioning unit was a portable unit that sat on the floor which was different, but was quiet and cooled the room adequately.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lake View Hotel. It was a busy location, but our room on the end was very comfortable and very clean. The comfortable bed offered a great night sleep. Portable air conditioner was not real cool, but perfect for our liking. It also drowned out any of the street noise that may have been.... More

Thank you to all the staff at the Lake View! This is our third year in a row staying at this hotel and we have never been disappointed. We actually hosted our wedding dinner reception there this year and the hotel went above and beyond to make sure we had a perfect day!
