“Great location and wonderful service!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

We had such a nice visit there! The weather was perfect and the people at the Murray are all so nice. They have great breakfasts and wonderful donuts. We also bought some of their fudge and it was amazing. Very nice rooms and a hot tub!

I stayed at the Murray for three nights unexpectedly as I was waiting for a special procedure on my dog at MSU. Touring around Michigan was boring, so I came to Mackinac where I summered in our family cottage for 28 years. I haven't been back for 20 years. I was delighted the staff at the hotel arranged a darling little historic room for me, It reminded me of our big cottage, horses trotting, listeneing to people having fun in the park, hearing the fog horns blowing and ferry horns. The price was great, the experience memorable and very fair prices for food compared to the over priced options around town. If you want to experience a fun old fashioned hotel in the middle of it all, you will be happy to put up with small rooms, and historic features of an old hotel.

The place was so nice. The staff was so helpful. It's right across the street from getting off the ferry (very convenient) the next day when we checked out they let us store our luggage there so we can walk around
the island. Will definitely stay there again on our next visit

We stayed at the Murray Hotel on Saturday, October 19, which turned out to be the last night they are open for the season. The check in was good - when I told the clerk I had a reservation, she asked if it was for "Smith". I said Yes! It appeared they were waiting for us and we were the last to check in. The room was not as small as some other reviews indicate. There was a queen bed, a couple of chairs and the TV stand. It was room 312 which has a harbor view. The bathroom was clean and roomy and the bed was comfortable. My only issue was the street noise - people laughing loudly outside and of course the clomping of the horses hooves - which you have to expect on Mackinac Island! Next time I will ask for a room toward the back of the hotel since the "harbor view" was an obstructed view and not really worth the extra cost, which I did not pay since all the rooms were the same price for the last weekend of the season. The breakfast buffet in the morning was very nice. $8 was very reasonable since they had everything you might want - French toast, bacon, sausage, two kinds of potatoes, scrambled eggs, juice, three kinds of cereal, donuts, yogurt, coffee (decaf and regular) and tea. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms with a harbor view are right on the street which can be noisy.

This hotel was not fancy, but provided a fun back-in-time feel with a great view over the harbor and main street. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our only regrets were not sampling the fudge available near the entrance and not bringing a swimsuit for the large roof/courtyard hot tub!

Stayed here in mid October when it wasn't crowded. The price was much better than other hotels. If you browsed their website they gave you a discount. The room was charming and comfortable. They have a very nice hot tub and gorgeous patio. The only downside was the small Mexican lunch counter. It did not go with the theme. And the smell of cooking spices were too strong, permeated the whole place.

Room Tip: Rooms off the patio gave you a nice view.

We stay here year after year because the staff is so nice. The place is very laid-back: no headaches, no head trip, no nonsense. Great value (though I wish they'd bring back free breakfasts!). Bargains can be found at last minute.

Room Tip: If you care about having lots of space or a view, pay for a deluxe room. The historic rooms are nic...
