Stayed in a top floor, lakefront suite and was completely worth it. The view from the private balcony was amazing, great way to wake up and watch the freighters go by/ferries come in. The hotel is just at the edge of downtown, so it's easy enough to get everywhere. It is right next to the Arnold dock, so if you're arriving on Shepler's be prepared to walk. Unfortunately it rained almost the entire time we were there, so we cut our trip short. There's just not much to do with small children, in Mackinac, in the rain. We look forward to coming back for an adult only trip! That lakeside hot tub is amazing!
