“Charming!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Very clean and charming hotel located in a perfect area - right on the water! We walked everywhere around the island. It's also close to the ferry docks and is very convenient. Breakfast was provided and is a good variety of items. The hotel is quiet and perfect for a relaxing weekend getaway.

We visited with my mother in law and two teenaged daughters. The views from the rooms were spectacular and the gardens beautiful. The setting is cozy and intimate. We especially liked the multiple common areas for gathering for a nice game of cards or meeting up for an outing. The restaurant was very nice as well. We will definately return.

Stayed here 2 days & it was great. Location is perfect: at the edge of town so only steps away from shops, etc, but on it's own water front property so it's away from the mob of tourist.. Nice old hotel, well decorated rooms & friendly. The provided breakfast is simple but well served in an old drawing room. The prices are about the same as the usual B&Bs on the island. The restrarant is very good, altho' a little pricy

Room Tip: Some of the ground floor rooms have balconies facing the lake... try to get one of those. They don...

We have stayed in this hotel before and found it a terrific experience. Previously we on the top floor even though it was expensive it was a terrific view and a very nice room. Our experience was very different this time. We were on the first floor and noise in the basement woke us at 6am on a saturday and was continuous until 7:30. We asked to change rooms and were given a room across the hall (102). This time we could hear dryers running the the basement from about 9pm until 11:20. We made a comment at the desk about 10 and we were assured that they would be off by 11. (not). The early in the next morning it seemed that may guests were trying to leave early as the weather was cool and many guests were there for a saturday trail run as we were. There was no possibility to get any extra sleep. If you stay here do not stay on the first floor.

Room Tip: Go up but it will cost you.

We stayed for two nights in the off season, in the Lighthouse Suite. Our suite was really delightful and comfortable, two large bedrooms each with full bathroom, and a spacious living room between the bedrooms. Living room included wet bar & fridge. Each room had large dormer windows overlooking the bay.
Location is right next to the Star Ferry terminal; hotel provides porter service for luggage between rooms and ferry dock.
Be forewarned that the suite is a 3-flight walk-up, no elevators. Also be aware that while this hotel has a dining room, it is closed in the off-season. Dining options in town are available, though uninspired.
Housekeeping was excellent, including nightly turn-down service.
Only point that keeps this review from getting full 5-stars would be front desk service. There was nothing particularly wrong with it, but it wasn't special, we were just another guest. Given the price point of the hotel, and our suite in particular - even off-season - I would have expected more of a concierge style of service.

Room Tip: If stairs are an issue, request a ground-floor room.

We've stayed at the Iroquois at least 7 times through the years and have never been disappointed. It's an exquisite facility, with an unsurpassed location on the water. Each room is charmingly decorated and immaculately clean. An added bonus is the Iroquois' dining room; best food on the island. The hotel is a bit pricey in mid season, but worth it. Look for special early season and late season specials.

This was the first time my husband and I stayed on Mackinac Island. We chose the Hotel Iroquois on the recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed. Generally a quite pricey Hotel, we found a Fall special so it wasn't any more expensive then the national chains. We had a Garden Room with a private porch. The room was very clean and a maid even turned our bed down at night. It was quiet. The staff were very welcoming and very helpful...the porters, the desk clerks, the cleaning staff, and the owner, who we met briefly. There were games and movies available for a rainy night. We will probably visit again.
