We had a wonderful two-night stay at this hotel. It is convenient to everything on the island. Is is spotless, great amenities (lilac shampoo, soap, etc), wonderful bed & linens. Has Keurig coffee pot & coffee. Only slight negative is that some rooms are small (like a bed & breakfast. Wonderful & helpful staff. Highly recommend.

The rooms have been updated completely and have a quaint cottage feel to them The HVAC is also new. A Keurig is provided in the room, which was a pleasant surprise. A little bit of noise from the hall, but not too bad. Turn-down service, very clean. Priced well.

This was our third trip tp Mackinac Island since discovering it in 2013. All three visits were in the month of September. We've had such great weather everytime (mid 70's and sunny). The island is so beautiful, crystal clear water and fresh air. It's great to not see any motorized vehicles. The first two visits we stayed at the Lilac... More

My boyfriend and I had not been to Mackinac Island in many years and we decided to stay for 4 nights with his two little girls. We would do it all over again! Everything about the hotel was 5 stars! Our view was fantastic, the room size was perfect (we stayed in a suite with 2 queen size beds) The... More

We just had the most wonderful wedding at the Pink Pony, and many of us stayed at the Chippewa. The staff was very efficient and helpful-- and we were free to enjoy ourselves and the gorgeous surroundings.

Hotel was near boat landing and everything else we wanted. The benches in the shade out front were perfect for relaxing and "people watching". Our room was so cute and very comfy. Would stay here again.

Hotel was excellent on all counts! Location, accommodations, everything! The location was in the center of downtown - the clippity clock of the horses and the downtown ambiance makes the hotel special.

We have visited, and stayed on the island, five different times, and our stay last weekend was one of the best!! We had a room on the street side, and though the bathroom was quite small, there was plenty of room for the three of us to sleep and just relax in the room. The people behind the counter, both...

The honeymoon suite and the other rooms on the top floor were fantastic and we all had a great view of the lake and enjoyed spending time on the balconies! The large jacuzzi was fun and the Pink Pony bar and restaurant were superb!

After 46 years, the hotel looks the same , except the outdoor swimming pool was coverted to a big jacuzzi. The room and beddings were excellent. Everything was within walking distance. If we come again, I will prefer to reserve the rooms facing the lake, as there would be less noise from the main street. The room rates had gone... More
