Staff very friendly, hotel clean, room has balcony with great view. Hotel is very close to everything. It is only a very short walk from the ferry landing. If one needs help with luggage the hotel will send person to help. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distant from the hotel. All of the hotel employees were very friendly... More

Fudgie- that is what tourists are called on Mackinac Island. There are 17 shops on this small island to buy fudge. I chose Murray's after sampling a few locations. Their fudge was the creamiest of the lot. The gals working there were very friendly and encouraged the sampling. I also liked buying by the pound instead of by the slice... More

We had a very comfortable, 2 night stay. The staff was very helpful, very efficient, and all very nice. A porter met our ferry and took our luggage to the hotel and to our room and another delivered our luggage to the ferry when we left. Our room, a queen room overlooking Main St., was small, but spotless. The shower... More

The staff was very nice, especially the porter and cleaning staff. We had a Deluxe Queen, which was adequate, but cannot imagine how small a regular room would be. The bed was comfortable, but a little jiggly if you rolled over. The furniture and linens really could use updating. One of two chairs was unusable and linens mismatched and threadbare,... More

We only had time to stay one night on the island and were not sure when we would arrive, so we did not have reservations. I tried to call and did get through, but my phone was cutting in and out. We gave the ferry company the Murray Hotel as our place to stay and they picked up our luggage... More

Excellent location right in the heart of downtown. Rooms are clean, and the outdoor hot tub is very nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. Family-friendly and good for kids. The only reason that I wouldn't rate this higher is that it is an older building, so the walls are paper thin. We could hear everything going on in the... More

The Murray Hotel was a real find. It is located very conveniently on the main street of the small tourist town on the island, close to many restaurants and the ferry harbor. The staff was very accommodating and most helpful. They even pick up your luggage to and from the ferries (on bicycles, no less). They have a nice restaurant... More

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to review us. The staff, location, fudge shop, and Amigo Burrito deli are all things that set us apart.

Murray hotel was quiet and clean. The breakfast buffet was very good and under $10. They offered coffee and hot chocolate all day long. Their fudge store has a tasty selection to choose from. The amenities in the room were just fine for not spending a lot of time in the room. No phone in the room but there was... More

My wife and I met a group of high school classmates on Mackinac Island. We all booked at the Murray Hotel. 6 rooms in total. Some rooms were Classic and some were Deluxe. All were clean and comfortable. The difference between them is the size of the room. The Deluxe is a larger room. The staff at the front desk... More

Stayed here several times over the years that I worked on the island. This hotel has the best hot tub area. It is private so no unwanted tourists stare at you, it has a waterfall, plus a curfew for kids so you can have some converations with adults and not worry.
