We stayed at the Pontiac Lodge for three nights in mid February. Not too many people around which was fine with us. Room 22 was spacious with 2 queen beds, fridge, microwave, coffee pot, a table with a couple of chairs. We'll be back next year.

Winter on the island is so much fun. We stayed in room #24 at the Pontiac Lodge. The front desk is friendly and helpful. The room had everything we needed. We went to Doud's grocery and got a few things for the small fridge. There is a coffee maker for a hot cup in the morning. The beds are comfortable...

I was looking so forward to an overnight getaway with my husband, and finally my first trip to the Island. What started out as a wonderful trip turned into a disaster for the two of us. At 11:30 p.m. we were ready for bed but the key we were provided didn't work. This property doesn't have any evening staff on...

Stayed 2 week nights on the island. Considering the exorbitant prices of most hotels on the island, this was reasonable. It was roomy, clean, yet basic. Location was fantastic - across the street from Sheplers Ferry Dock!

Had a great experience. Went to Mackinac Island for the 8 mile race this year and stayed 2 nights. That weekend, everything is expensive, but this hotel was still fair priced. We stayed in room 27. Its a small 1 queen bed but worked for our needs and was clean. Super easy to find and was located right down town.

The thing to know about the Pontiac is that the rooms vary a lot, so you need to look at the pictures and descriptions and prices to make your choice. We were in 23, the highest priced room besides Presidential Suite. On the Sunday/Monday I had it for in late August, it was $200, which is pretty good for Mackinac....

The room was clean and spacious. Right in the heart o Mackinaw Island. Beds were comfortable. The beds had down comforters, they were too warm for September weather. The girl that checked us in was friendly and efficient. Would definitely say here again.

We have stayed here many other times and feel the location is great. When I walked into our room it was so nice and felt so inviting. Everything was so clean. I found only one thing that was bothersome and that was the continous thumping of the music from the store below us. On Sunday it was all day, until...

The Pontiac Lodge is an updated older hotel right off of Main Street. To access the rooms you must climb an outside staircase. Once in the rooms they are well appointed and kept in tip top condition. On hot days the air conditioning is completely adequate. The room we stay in overlooks Main Street and is equipped with a refrigerator...

This is our first overnight stay in the island. Our ferry line brought our bags right to the hotel which was nice and they were brought to our room when we arrived later that afternoon.
