We took the Arnold ferry over and the Murray Hotel was literally across the street. This was great in that we just walked our bags over or in some cases they will take them to your hotel for you. If you arrive early there is a place to hold your luggage until check in time. It was located on the... More

After a 10 hour drive and 45 min ferry arrived at the hotel with my husband and grown son visiting us from San Diego. Had a 3 night reservation but only stayed 2 due to rainy weather. Hotel has excellent location near Arnold ferry. Staff was very friendly. Fudge is the best real creamy and smooth. Room was quaint, clean... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We appreciate the kind words, and I've passed along your message about the fudge and cleanliness of the rooms to that staff; they love hearing compliments from our guests!

I booked a room at the Murray for myself and my 3 grandchildren. I am a fan of the older hotels that have character, and the Murray did not disappoint. The room was comfortable and beautiful. We had the breakfast bar and liked it very much. The only problem I had was that they wanted me to leave my luggage... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few different times. It's location couldn't be better. Right downtown across from the Arnold Dock. The Large hot tub or tiny pool, is located on the roof and well maintained. The rooms are tiny. The fudge shop is located in the lobby which makes for a quick sample each time you pass by.... More

We had such a nice visit there! The weather was perfect and the people at the Murray are all so nice. They have great breakfasts and wonderful donuts. We also bought some of their fudge and it was amazing. Very nice rooms and a hot tub!

I stayed at the Murray for three nights unexpectedly as I was waiting for a special procedure on my dog at MSU. Touring around Michigan was boring, so I came to Mackinac where I summered in our family cottage for 28 years. I haven't been back for 20 years. I was delighted the staff at the hotel arranged a darling... More

The place was so nice. The staff was so helpful. It's right across the street from getting off the ferry (very convenient) the next day when we checked out they let us store our luggage there so we can walk around the island. Will definitely stay there again on our next visit

We stayed at the Murray Hotel on Saturday, October 19, which turned out to be the last night they are open for the season. The check in was good - when I told the clerk I had a reservation, she asked if it was for "Smith". I said Yes! It appeared they were waiting for us and we were the... More

This hotel was not fancy, but provided a fun back-in-time feel with a great view over the harbor and main street. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our only regrets were not sampling the fudge available near the entrance and not bringing a swimsuit for the large roof/courtyard hot tub!

Stayed here in mid October when it wasn't crowded. The price was much better than other hotels. If you browsed their website they gave you a discount. The room was charming and comfortable. They have a very nice hot tub and gorgeous patio. The only downside was the small Mexican lunch counter. It did not go with the theme. And... More
