We arrived on the island via Sheplers which is very close the hotel. Our luggage actually was actually at the hotel before we were. Byron (dock porter/bellman) was awesome. Check in went smoothly. Our room was ready and beautiful. Very pleased to find a Keurig coffee maker in the room. We enjoyed the pool both nights after riding bikes all... More

We had heard people speak positively about Mackinac Island, so we set out on a course from Kansas City for 7 days. We stopped in Door County, WI (very cool), then up north of Lake Michigan and back down to Mackinac Island. There are no cars on the island (we knew that). We took the ferry over from St. Ignace....

Impressed with everything about this hotel. Was booking online and the price was fairly expensive at around $370 a night for a double queen room. Called to reserve instead and spoke to Leon and he was able to find us a deal and get our first night for around $220 and second for $270 and two free ferry tickets. CALL... More

Recently stayed at this hotel on a girls get a way. It is right across from the Shepherd boat docks. Close to all the "downtown" shops and attractions. The rooms are on the small side, but comfortable. This hotel has an indoor swimming pool which even the Grand Hotel can not claim. There is also air conditioning in the rooms... More

We have always enjoyed staying at the Lake View. It's a charming place that captures the essence of Mackinac Island. It's right in the middle of everything and close to shopping and sights. The indoor pool is very nice and a great place to get away when the weather doesn't cooperate.

We visited Mackinac Island and stayed at this hotel the evening of August 16, 2016 at a price, including tax, of $319. The experience of staying at a hotel built in 1858 was nice, but definitely not worth the cost. The free-standing, floor air conditioner had to run on high all night to keep the room cool, which made the... More

We recently stayed at the Lake View Hotel. The first night, we ate dinner at Goodfellow's Chop House in the hotel. It was so-so. Fortunately, the dinner/entertainment voucher from the hotel covered most of the dinner expense. Our first night stay was horrible. Our room (222) was near the Goodfellow's bar, which played music until 1:30 AM (closing time). This... More

My husband and I stayed four nights at the Lakeview Hotel in a lake view king room on the third floor. Prices were very expensive, but it was worth it to me for the lake view during our first visit to Mackinac Island. We were also there during the Chicago to Mackinac boat race, which inflated prices. I did enjoy... More

The hotel was build initially ("ancient "time!!) on the lake (name: Lake View). However, since then, a main street and another line of building were constructed in front of the hotel. You can still have a lake view if you get a room on the third/ fourth floor. The back view is not so bad either: houses and nice backyards.The... More

Very nice hotel on Mackinaw Island. Super friendly staff made the stay even more welcoming. Rooms were clean and as expected. The hotel pool and hot tub was in great shape and conveniently located inside but yet are nice sized. Just steps from the ferry dock stations, great restaurants and shops the Lake View Hotel is in a perfect location... More
