Our go to hotel on Mackinac Island, conveniently located opposite the Arnold Line dock. Historic hotel, so don't expect spacious or luxurious, but it is clean, quiet and comfortable. The completely private pool spa in the center is a wonderful place to kick back and relax. Best fudge on the island in the lobby, and reasonably priced breakfast and pizza... More

We recently stayed at The Murray. It is not our first choice for lodging on Mackinac Island. The staff has done a great job with regards to maintaining an older hotel, cleanliness and attention to customer service. The rooms are very small. The location is right across from the docks and next to a couple of bars. It was very... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Murray in mid-August and had an ok stay overall. We got off to kind of a rough start on our stay, the 2 men manning the front desk were both pretty indifferent in terms of customer service. We checked in around 2:15pm with one guy whose service was pretty lackluster and were told our... More

Was in Mackinac Island for 4 days and stayed at the Murray Hotel. Staff was excellent and room clean but TINY. Still it was the only room I could find on Main st. for under $200 a night at peak season, so the value is definitely there.

We booked a room for 3 nights at the Murray Hotel with two queen sized beds. This hotel is conveniently located in downtown Mackinac Island, close to Arnold's dock and many nice restaurants and shops. The room was pretty crowded, but clean and quiet. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom area was quite spacious. We had a lovely... More

Friendly and helpful staff for luggage and front desk services. Fudge shop right in the lobby. Cookies at turn down. Room was very spacious, nicely decorated,... More

Currently staying at the Murray. Very disappointing stay began with luggage porter forgetting our room number delaying delivery of our belongings. Variety of food at breakfast buffet was plentiful, however hot items were cold. Upon returning from sightseeing after 6 hours the room was not made-up for the day. This was after 3:00 PM. When we maid service did arrive,... More

We spent one night here. They have a very good Pizza Buffet/Salad Bar at lunch and dinner, and an excellent breakfast buffet reasonably priced. Rooms are very small like those you see in many European hotels. No tub, but a nice updated shower. Hallways are narrow...older property. Wi if was free, but very slow and sporadic.

Murray Hotel is at the top of the Arnold Ferry ramp. It is quick to get to and right on the main street. There is a fudge shop inside the lobby and a great buffet in the rear with a decent price. Our room had 2 queen beds and 3 chairs and a desk. The wifi was slow at times.... More
