Just returned from three nights at the Harbor View Inn in Mackinac Island. Welcoming, historic hotel in great shape at a more reasonable price than many on Mackinac. Comfortable room facing the gardens; ample continental breakfast; helpful staff. Bikes available for rent at prices lower than elsewhere. Slightly removed from the downtown so quiet yet easy to access restaurants. Complementary... More

We enjoyed our stay at Harbour view inn. It was a good value. They set up a pack n play for our baby to sleep in so we didn't have to lug our own to the island. Our room was on the 4th floor, without elevators, but they carried our heavy suitcase from the ferry dock up to the room... More

We have stayed here for the last 2 years, and it is our hotel of choice for staying on the island. Everything about it is beautiful, the staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast is wonderful, and the bike rental is cheap and easy. It is a little further down main street, so we don't feel crowded by everyone on... More

Harbour View has comfortable rooms and beautiful grounds. It's located apart from the hub-bub of the main street of Mackinac. It means a ~10 min walk from the ferry but it's worth it to escape the crowds. The staff was very helpful with recommendations of restaurants and biking trails.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Harbour View. We found everyone on the staff to be extremely helpful and pleasant. Our room was clean and nicely decorated. We didn't have A/C, which was a little tough mid-day, but the fans were enough for us in the evening. We loved having a balcony overlooking the garden. We rented bicycles from... More

The Inn was beautiful, from the sidewalk to the room, and the staff was very friendly. Unfortunately, the breakfast was extremely lacking for the cost, and was that was our final experience before leaving, it truly soured our experience.

We stayed one night at the Cottage in a room facing the street. The room was modernized - flat-screen TV, Wifi, bathroom was clean and new. If it hadn't been such a hot day (and night) we would have loved it. But there is no AC; we opened windows to get in a (slight) breeze. The room was on 2nd... More

Loved the atmosphere of the Harbour View Inn! So quaint and cute, loved the feel of it being more old fashioned versus new. Loved that it was not right downtown and was away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. I would recommend this place to couples they aren't looking for a place with a pool, or hot... More

This home is incredibly beautiful, the room was very nice with an incredibly comfortable bed. The breakfast was incredible, much more than a simple continental breakfast. And the staff were very friendly and very helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend this to anyone else.

Cale, I am sorry that you were not happy with your stay. I hope that you alerted the front desk to the cleanliness issues and that they were addressed quickly. Our breakfast is a complimentary continental breakfast so it is a smaller spread. We can always make recommendations for a restaurant that serves more options on main street. We would... More
