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

Location was ideal; right across from Shepler's Ferry. Porters from the Ferry and the hotels are well coordinated; we did not have to touch our bags form the time we gave them to the ferry personnel until they arrived in our room. Deluxe room was fine for four. It's amazing how quiet the evenings are without any motorized vehicles; do... More

My husband and I stayed here during a peak time, so it was very busy and the streets were crowded. But you would never know that from our room - it had a small view of the water and was very spacious. The layout was a bit odd but it was still comfortable. The only reason we couldn't give it...

My family and I spent a week in Michigan for the first time this summer. We decided to venture to Mackinac Island at the last minute thanks to a friend's recommendation. There wasn't a whole lot of availability for a last minute stay in the summer on the weekend, but Lake View Hotel came through and provided us with a... More

To address a number of issues in this review. The family package is a discounted rate, that does save the average guest quite a bit off the published rates. The rate then adds in the Ferry Tickets, (at the same cost we pay) and a $100 gift card. The card is usable at a number of locations. Thanks For sharing,... More

Just across the street from the Star Ferry terminal, right in the middle of Main Street, but surprisingly quiet and very cheerful! And fun to know it is the oldest continuously operating hotel on the island. We took our granddaughter to Mackinac Island and the Lake View was perfect for us. She loved the fun indoor pool. We loved the... More
