“Enjoyable Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

I had seen this lovely hotel on my last visit to Mackinac Island, and hoped to return and stay here some day. Did that, and was very pleased with the accommodations. The room was very lovely and very clean. The location of the Inn was excellent. We rented bikes here and found the price to be the best of anywhere else we checked on the island! The breakfast was everything we needed to start our day. It seemed very European to us... Would be happy to return some day.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms were located in the back of the Inn, with just a few higher priced ones in the fro...

We had a great 3-night stay at the Harbour View Inn. Our room was spotless and the breakfast was delicious every morning. I recommend this inn for your stay on Mackinac Island. It's just a beautiful 5 minute walk from the down town area, with a couple of local coffee shops close by to start your stroll down Main Street! The Butterfly House is just one street over too.

Room Tip: There were no elevators. If you can't climb up stairs very well, then request a ground level ro...

We just got back from a 2 day trip up at Mackinac Island and stayed at the Harbour View Inn. The staff was very nice and professional and the room we had was just great. We had booked through Groupon and we were not disappointed at all. However, they offer a continental breakfast that I think has a little to be desired. The fruit selection was good but the eggs tasted like they were powdered eggs and there was not a meat selection to be found. Outside of that the stay was pleasant.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Harbour View Inn. They just gave the rooms in the Guest House a face lift. It's tastefully done with new carpet, fresh paint, furnishings and pictures! We rather preferred the way it was before, each room was noticeably different, very Victorian and so Mackinac Island. But, like I said, the new rooms are very tastefully well done! It's a very clean Inn, which is important to us. My husband and I are rather picky when it comes to where we spend our vacation. Bathrooms are clean and linens are clean.

This Inn is our favorite b/c you are on the main drag but far enough away from the hustble bustle to make it quiet. It's very romantic and cozy! We always stay in the "garden view" rooms and we love the view of the steeple of St. Anne's church. You are steps away from the lake! They offer a free continental breakfast every morning, we are always pleased with the selection. Love the fresh fruit!

I am giving a "4" b/c I didn't feel the staff was as friendly as usual. You would think repeat customers would be treated a little nicer?! When we checked in, Austin helped us with our bags and we had a key issue, he resolved it right away and was very helpful/friendly, thanks! We had very noisy neighbors above us that awoke us every morning at 6AM, no fault of the Inns, but we asked front desk to possibly move us and they didn't try very hard.

Overall, this is a good place to stay, the location, views and value are good! I would recommend it, just stay on a top floor if you are not a very sound sleeper!!!

Room Tip: Guest house and top floor facing garden. Or rooms facing the lake in the main house.

My friend and I had a wonderful experience at the Harbour View Inn. The customer service was excellent. We arrived on a very hot, humid day and were concerned we might not have an air conditioned room. The staff made sure we had a lovely room, with a/c, and even upgraded the room at no extra charge to us. Breakfast was great, grounds are lovely, and I'll be back!

Room Tip: If you need a/c, be sure to let them know. Ask about the view if it's important to you.

Just returned from a two night stay at the Harbor View. I always stay here when I visit the island and have never had any complaints. This is a lovely hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and considerate. The
Breakfast is very good and has a good variety. From our room on the fourth floor we could see the lake and light house.
A little slice of heaven on this wonderful island.
