“Planning to return”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Room in guest house very clean but dated. Good news is they started to renovate our floor on our last night stay, leaving us as the only guests on the floor. Staff apologetic but must say it was very quiet. Location to downtown is a short walk, no real need for horse taxi. Breakfast included hot oatmeal, pastries, basic. Staff friendly and seemed to handle surprising number of unexpected guests due to great weather. View from our room very nice, noted beautiful sunrise over harbour. Room size perfect for our needs. Could update tv to modern flat screen. Would like to return when Reno completed.

I was there for a week with the Road Scholar program. The hotel was welcoming, coffee and ice water available 24 hours a day. The rooms were immaculate and the food was very good. I would recommend this facility to my friends and would go back again.

Loved the charming clean room! Loved the front porch. Loved the desk staff. Didn't love the empty vending machines for 3 days, but another business was nearby. Highly recommend to others if you like to walk ( we didn't have an elevator in our guest house).

I had seen this lovely hotel on my last visit to Mackinac Island, and hoped to return and stay here some day. Did that, and was very pleased with the accommodations. The room was very lovely and very clean. The location of the Inn was excellent. We rented bikes here and found the price to be the best of anywhere else we checked on the island! The breakfast was everything we needed to start our day. It seemed very European to us... Would be happy to return some day.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms were located in the back of the Inn, with just a few higher priced ones in the fro...

We had a great 3-night stay at the Harbour View Inn. Our room was spotless and the breakfast was delicious every morning. I recommend this inn for your stay on Mackinac Island. It's just a beautiful 5 minute walk from the down town area, with a couple of local coffee shops close by to start your stroll down Main Street! The Butterfly House is just one street over too.

Room Tip: There were no elevators. If you can't climb up stairs very well, then request a ground level ro...

We just got back from a 2 day trip up at Mackinac Island and stayed at the Harbour View Inn. The staff was very nice and professional and the room we had was just great. We had booked through Groupon and we were not disappointed at all. However, they offer a continental breakfast that I think has a little to be desired. The fruit selection was good but the eggs tasted like they were powdered eggs and there was not a meat selection to be found. Outside of that the stay was pleasant.
