While this hotel is called the "Lake View Inn", there was not a lake view. It is the oldest Inn on the island. I am sure that when it was built, there was a beautiful view of the water, however, there has since been buildings put across the street, blocking the view of the water. Even so, this was a...

We enjoyed the location of this hotel and the 1858 Victorian style and chose a lake view room in one of the turrets. We enjoyed having the extra seating area to view the lake and outside activity. The Star Line and also Shepler's Ferry is right across the street which is very convenient and this location gives you a nice...

This has been our go to hotel on the island because of the pool. For $250 a night, I have certain expectations about the cleanliness, accommodations, and helpfulness of employees. Unfortunately we will be spending our money and time elsewhere after our recent visit. First, our room was not available when we checked in (we were early) but the staff...

Stayed at Lake View for 2 nights, great location just across the road from ferry from the mainland. We had a spa room that was on the corner of the street so you have the sound of horses trotting by until late on but that adds to the quirkiness of the island, however on the second night they were resurfacing...

We have stayed in the past and we will stay again. Every one was friendly and helpful. We plan to return with friends. The breakfast offered was enough to get our day started. We love to stay also because of the indoor pool.

Stayed one night before we went to the Grand and enjoyed our stay here. It has a beautiful indoor pool and wish we would have brought our suits. The front lobby was very open and comfy to visit with friends. Oh and the bellman was right there and did an awesome job

I usually travel to Mackinaw Island around Memorial Day but also went for a couple of days around Labor Day this year. I love the cooler weather and the scenery is always gorgeous. If there is anything at all you need the staff will assist you.

The people at the Lake View Hotel were very sweet, accommodating and helpful. The helped us get our food, plan our bicycle trip and lugged out bags back and forth from the ferry. They at the end of the main road so you are quick to leave the hustle and bustle or to enter it.

Had a get time on the island, needed more time to see the whole island though, 2 day are just not enough, there is just too much to see and enjoy. The pace on the island is slower and that makes for an enjoyable time while you are there.
