We stayed at the Harbour view at the end of June. It was still cool in the mornings and very comfortable other times. There are several buildings, our room was in the Bed and Breakfast. Breakfast is served at the main hotel lobby dining room and at the bed and breakfast and you can take your pick, but everyone from the hotel and both other buildings goes to the hotel dining room, so i recommend eating at the bbed and breakfast reguardless of the building you are staying in. It is quiet and slow paced there and you can make a cup of tea and sit out on the front porch and watch as the town slowly comes awake in the mornings. I'm not sure whether its the hotel or just Macinac that makes it an Excellent - probably Macinac - location, location, location. This Inn is close enough to the docks to walk, far enough from the Downtown to be out of the shopping crowd.
The room rates were reasonable compared to other places on Macinac, which is very pricy. We were not willing to pay +$300 a night for the Grand, much less $10 just to walk on their porch. Our room was comfortable with a full bath with tub, cable TV. This hotel is a moderate walk down the main street from the ferry docks. We planned ahead to carry only hand luggage for two overnights on the ferry and were easily able to carry our own bags to the hotel, just ask locals for directions. With heavier luggage you can get a carriage ride to and from with horse-drawn or bicycle porters to carry your baggage. I think we saved time by just walking. The town is small and easy to walk around in.
