We booked our stay at the LakeView Hotel on Mackinac Island about 4 weeks ahead of time and were delighted with the choice. It was a very homey atmosphere, with lovely rooms and all the modern conveniences that we would look for in a less historic place. The beds were very comfortable, and the service was impeccable. It was overall a very positive and relaxing experience. We highly recommend this hotel.
we were very happy staying at the lake house. we would stay there again it is so close to everything.the only thing i would change is to have a room in the back of the hotel you can here everything that is going on outside.they wash the streets down every moring after bar time.
Room was clean, good water pressure in the shower. The oatmeal at the meager breakfast was horrid.
We loved the resort feel of this hotel with the restaurants and shops. Everything you needed was right there. When we asked for a change of room due to several circumstances, they were agreeable. We were originally placed in room 1111 in the main section, we found it to be too noisy being next to the elevator. This was also a very small room with a mini bathroom. After complaining about our neighbors who left their TV on all night and the racket from the elevator, they moved us to a larger room which I am sure was an upgrade.
The resort was away from all the commotion of downtown and there was plenty to do; enjoying the quiet waterfront, playing glow golf, exploring the grounds and more. It's the best place to stay in the island for a couple or family getaway.
Hotel Iroquois overall was a nice place to stay. The setting was great by being on the outskirts of town but yet still close to all the shops. The staff was friendly. The only drawback of this hotel was the breakfast left something to be desired. A heartier variety of food for breakfast would have made our experience even better.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay here! The weather went sour, but we were able to hang out in our room and watch a dvd. It was cozy and the view was beautiful. The decor in the room was adorable. The breakfast wasn't spectacular, but it held us over until we were able to catch the ferry.
The location was perfect for walking down to the shopping area but far enough away to be quiet at night. The inn grounds were beautiful and the porches were perfect for sitting outside in the evenings. The morning breakfast items were fresh and tasty. When we arrived, we were given a room that did not match the room I had booked and paid extra for. After calling the main desk and reading off the description of the room we were to receive, we were moved to a room that fit the description.....no hassle.
Very nice and clean and I liked the feel of the older home experience. Staff was very professional and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful, it felt a little like going back in time maybe the 1950's. All the inner rooms facing the garden had balconies and I did not sit out there because there were people just staring at anyone who was out there. Also bad conversation from some guests. Noise from next room's shower was extremely loud.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The walk to downtown was very convenient and only 5 minutes from the boat docks. The hotel room was very small. The TV was the size of a computer monitor. We tried not to watch TV with so much to do, but it was raining and towards the end of the season, so nothing was open very late.
the location was quite and off main part of town but still was a short walk to town. It had a feel of home. My one issue was in my room the shower head did not work very well, instead of a spray it just came out in a clump
* Large rooms with balcony overlooking water * good breakfast * nice warm pool and big hot tub You have to walk outside to get to breakfast. Really nice on a sunny summer morning. Not so much in winter.
Good breakfast buffet Lower level room
I thought the balcony overlooking the lake was great, see the island, boats and birds. Great view. Bathroom fan worked when it wanted to, didn't work for showers but it came on during the night when you used the bathroom at 3:00 AM. I heard banging from other fans. They need worked on. Didn't like the hard water. The bedding wasn't the best either. For what I paid for the room for 1 night, things should of been better. Oh, parking isn't the best. Needs spruced up. Free continental breakfast, room was packed.
I loved the rooms, the location and hospitality. Nothing
Lakeside view rooms even when I booked a non-lakeview room. Awesome breakfast. The catering staff were really friendly and helpful even at the end of the breakfast sessions. Nice grounds. Very near to all the docks. Would definitely recommend. Nothing.
I booked a room on line with no views of the island and got upgraded to a islnd view on the 3rd floor. Hotel was very clean. Lovely stay. The carpet by the entry was starting to give out and I stepped on a tack strip a few times, watching TV there coaxial are not tucked away behind the TV. I know i stayed at the end of the season so I expected much worse than that.
The best view and perfect location. Just out of town enough to not be crowded, but close enough to enjoy the buzz of town.
We(2adults + 2 ten year olds) stayed for 3 nights. Great location-close to downtown area. Bike rental right in front of hotel is very convenient. The included breakfast was awesome - pancakes(blueberry one day and banana another), frenchtoast, scrambled eggs, french toast, oatmeal, cereal, homemade pastries, fresh fruit, juice, coffee-great selection. The hot tub was closed most of the time and the pool looked odd-greenish. Our room was a little small, but we knew it was going to be ahead of time. It would have been great to have a desk or a table and chair to be able to use. Check-in and out were fine- friendly staff.
Loved the front porch. Spent much of our in between times sitting in the rocking chairs watching the water and boats. Very calming.
THIS HOTEL IS IN AN IDEAL LOCATION FROM THE DOCKS AND DOWNTOWN AREA. VERY CLOSE TO THE FORT AND VISITOR'S CENTER AND WITHIN SHORT WALKING DISTANCE TO MARKET ON THE CORNER FOR QUICK SUPPLIES. THE HUGE FRONT PORCH HAS PLENTY OF ROOM FOR GUESTS TO SIT AND AN EXCELLENT VIEW OF THE MARINA. ALSO, THE SITTING AREA WITH THE CHIMMEA AND S'MORES KITS ADDS A NICE TOUCH IN THE EVENINGS. BREAKFAST BUFFET WAS GREAT. HAD BEEN TO HIS HOTEL MANY YEARS AGO. IT WAS NICE TO GO BACK.
I would stay in the hotel again. The breakfast (included) was very good as was the location. Our room was small and located in a rather difficult area. The elevator did not go up to the floor where our room was so we needed to go up a couple of flights of stairs to get to it. But other than that, it was a pleasant stay.
We loved our trip to Mackinac Island, and the Island House Hotel was just a short walk from all the restaurants and shops. Our room was clean and comfortable. The service was okay, but not particularly friendly at the front desk. The best part was the free breakfast buffet in a lovely dining room overlooking Lake Huron.
Wonderful location, nice comfortable rooms and staff. If you cannot afford the Grand Hotel, this is a nice option. Great views of marina and nice breakfast. If you keep the windows open, you can even smell fudge from the shops down the street.
The room was small, old and out of date. But that isn't a complaint. The Island House is a very old hotel on an island that prides itself on minimizing the impact of the 20th and 21st century. I'm alway mystified by seeing reviews of this hotel and others on Mackinac Island that complain about amenities. Of course the amenities are old-fashioned! This isn't Las Vegas! The hotel was delightful, and we enjoyed sitting on the veranda and looking out on the lawn and the lake. The location is splendid, just a few steps from the ferry docks. Breakfast in the restaurant was good, and the hotel was cooperative in helping us get to the somewhat distant restaurant we went to for dinner. The lobby was classy and like something out of the 19th century. We had a great time. There were downsides. The room was small and the floor a bit sloped, Internet connectivity was iffy and slow, and the window looked out on a walkway that had people walking by. There were much better rooms, it appeared, but we were happy to get this one at the last minute. The point was to stay on the island, not the mainland. The staff was cooperative and polite, and luggage arrangements to and from the ferry were easy.
The Island House is easy to reach on foot from the ferry piers in Mackinac, and they have porters who take your luggage to the hotel from the ferry (and back when you leave). It's an easy walk into the main 'downtown' area of the island, yet you are far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be able to escape it at will. Bike rentals are available right on the premises. The hotel has an excellent view over the marina and the Straits of Mackinac, with plenty of veranda and lawn seating out front to watch the world go by. Our room ended up being somewhat small and without a view, but it did have air conditioning, which during our trip in July was invaluable, as Mackinac was unusually hot. The larger rooms with the marina views did not appear to have A/C. The pool is small, and the water somewhat frigid, but the locals who stay here don't seem to mind. The one drawback I would mention is that there seemed to be no control over guests with loud children making noise well into the night (midnight and beyond). Overall, a good choice for your trip to Mackinac.
The dorm room roof was awful. SMALL space to stand up straight. Also, the 25 steps up because the elevator does NOT go to the 4th floor. No ice either on the 4th floor. Very HOT and HUMID the window shaker unit worked 24 x 7 just to circulate the air. Will stay at the Lake View next time or another hotel
The location was close enough to easily walk to from the Arnold Ferry dock,and our bags were delivered to our room from the ferry. Lawn chairs, a firepit and bike rentals were on the front lawn with a lovely view of the harbor. The Island House is close to restaurants and shopping, but quieter than being in the middle of 'downtown'. Fudge at the check in desk and the included breakfast buffet were delicious. The lobby and rocking chairs on the front porch were comfortable places to relax and the indoor pool and hot tub were hidden in a quiet area behind the hotel.
We stayed here for the amiance and found it to be a reasonable alternative in an expensive locale. The rooms were functional but the location was wonderful. The morning breakfast was also the best of the trip in a beautiful dining area. I also enjoyed sitting out on the porch and watching the world go by! Very relaxing.
The location and amenities were great and the staff was really welcoming and curteous
the room was remodeled and the décor was done very well and pleasant. we were surprised that we found ourselves in a facility that must have been the first building used many years ago, not at all resembling all the other buildings----very retro. What spoiled our stay was a strong mildew odor. We are both allergic to mold and spent the night with Kleenex.
The breakfast was nice as was the view The stump grinder being used every morning right outside our room woke us up before 8 am every day of our stay. It was quite annoying.
Staff was great, and very helpful. The facilities are outdated, and you could tell the place was originally set up for summer use only. Space heaters in the halls, and our room facing the lake was freezing. (Poor seal around doors and windows) Breakfast was awful !!!! I recommend eating cereal, and fruit, maybe yougart, anything that is prepackaged is ok. Pool area was nice and had 2 hot tubs was a plus. All considered it was ok. I say this mainly because the staff was so great! Thanks!
Yes there is a view but only if you're on the second floor. The place is located on the outside of town. It is dated but is guess it was ok I could tell the place hadn't had a thorough cleaning in a awhile.
Good value for money. Close to I-75 and US-2. The elevator smelled like stinky feet. Overall a bit more upkeep would not hurt the place. The breakfast was very minimal (no eggs or sausage, bacon, pancakes)
Great rates. Always clean, comfortable, and well taken care of. And Nice staff. Always helpful. Can't beet the view if you have a lake side room. We have stayed here before and will stay here again.
Value for money Microwave and couple of minor appliances would greatly improve overall experience.
Great view of Mackinac Bridge, close to town, good info from the front desk lady about ferries, restaurants, etc.. Ice machine outside our door, pretty noisy. Lots of squawking gulls, but not much to do about that. Limited breakfast.
