Long weekend getaway
Nice hotel, close to marina. Really enjoyed the outdoor hot top after a long day hiking through the state park. Only qualm was we had a crappy view from our room as we looked over the side roof and air conditioning units etc. I’m sure though that the views are spectacular if you manage to get one of the rooms facing the water.

Excellent historic hotel!
I love the location and the history of the Island House Hotel! We were so impressed with our renovated room. Still had charm, even though it was updated. The location allowed us to walk to local shops and restaurants. Sitting on the large porch each evening looking out over the water was the best!

We loved the Island House
We loved the Island House Hotel. Our room was comfortable and reasonably priced for an amazing location. The hotel faces the lake and we enjoyed evenings sitting on the porch until the sun went down. The 'main' street of Mackinac is just a short walk away. We also enjoyed having a bike rental on site. The staff were super helpful answering our questions. Definitely recommend for others.

Keys don't work, bags might be stolen
The Island was great but I will not be returning to the Island House Hotel. The keys to the rooms do not work. We spent 30- minutes after a full day of walking around the island after 10 pm trying to get into our room. The maintenance guy tried everything to get us in the room and after he was considering breaking the door, the night manager showed up with the master key (the maintenance guy thought he had the master). BTW, the night manager was the first person I spoke to who sent the maintenance guy. I guess she thought the master key was not that important. Additionally, I would not recommend you use the checking your bag through from the ferry dock to room option -- you are better off carrying your bag. The Island House Hotel staff delivered my bag to the hallway outside my room after I called and asked if I had to stay in my room until my bag was delivered or could I leave? I was assured that my bag would be delivered to my room. I just did not realize my room was defined as the easily stealable location right out side my room in the hall. Had my bag been stolen, I am sure that they would have claimed that they were not responsible for my bag. Thus my assessment: Do not use the check through option -- they are not responsible for your bag and might place it where it can be stolen. Why take the risk?

Good Experience
You have to go into this one knowing that you're paying for the experience of staying on Mackinac Island. Overall, our stay was good. The building itself is super old (as are all the buildings on the island). So the rooms are small and the amenities weren't super modern or high end (small TV, no USB jacks, etc.). But the workers were courteous and helpful. The view from the porch can't be beat. The trandsport of luggage from the boat to hotel was seamless. The bike rental from the hotel was super convenient. I would stay here again.
