We loved the Chippewa! Our room overlooked the harbor and was beautifully decorated and extremely clean and even had a Keurig! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed the live music at the Pink Pony which is attached to the Chippewa. We will definitely be returning!

The Chippewa Hotel has a main street location; some rooms with city views, others waterfront views. The staff were accommodating and the efficiency of luggage being delivered from ferry to hotel was exceptional, same on the return trip. Our room had a city view, the king room was lovely and very comfortable. The street noise though from about 11:00 p.m.... More

Excellent Hotel. Older but an excellent place to stay, right on the lake shore and on the main street of activity. Excellent Restaurant at the Pink Pony with outdoor seating and bar. An excellent in-house bar with entertainment as well.

Beds were very comfortable, the room's climate control worked beautifully. Housekeeping staff was very friendly. Staff at the desk were excellent, particularly Matthew, Nicole, and Kevin. Pink Pony's food was very good, and room service was amazingly prompt.

Stayed for two nights right before the 4th and this place is starting to feel like a second home. Such a cool vibe! They opened a new pink pony gift shop this year with really nice stuff. Nothing cheap or "tourist-eee". Prices are fair too.

The Pink Pony shop and restaurant attached to the hotel was a definite plus. Also, having Arnold Ferry dock right next door made our travels so... More

The Chippewa Hotel is an excellent hotel. We had a two room suite overlooking the Harbor and the room was excellent. There was great attention to detail in both workmanship and cleanliness of the room. My wife and I really appreciated the evening milk and cookies that were dropped off in our room. The staff was very friendly and professional... More
