Beautiful hotel and helpful staff. Married on the porch 25 years ago. Great view. Did the Fort to Fort race. Great dinner and excellent service at the restaurant. We also like the Icehouse barbecue but they open later in the year.

The hotel is beautiful and historic. I loved our room right off of the lobby, until I realized how noisy it was. It was nice to be able to kick my feet up and watch the world go by. I really would have enjoyed using the hot tub after a 12 mile hike around and through the island.

Well it’s not bad but for $300/night I expect better. There are several places throughout the hotel where the carpet was literally worn through the threads. The lobby furniture was just as shabby and smelled like grandmas parlor. Room was fine, but you can hear everyone and everything, the staff starts working before 8am vacuuming. Bought the discounted ferry tickets but felt duped because the ticket for the return from the island was not on the fast boat but the slow one. Doubt the tickets were actually discounted at all. Get them through AAA or something.
Overall it was fine but truly don’t see the value.

I'm surprised you didn't like the new lobby that everyone is raving about!

As the oldest hotel on Mackinac Island, it can be challenging to maintain the balance between preserving the Island House's historic appeal and meeting modern guest expectations. Most guests find unparalleled value in our excellent service, convenient location, stunning view, and contemporary amenities.

We are sorry to hear that you did find value in the discount ferry tickets that you purchased. Star Line will occasionally schedule departures on a classic ferry, if you prefer to take the faster ferry you can always wait a half hour for the faster boat. How they schedule their departures is out of our control.

We certainly hope that you were able find some positive ways to enjoy your time on Mackinac Island.

The Island House staff is amazing and rooms are clean and nice. They have a lovely space out front with chairs and a fire to the view of the lake, so relaxing! The 1952 Grill Room is excellent and has amazing food! We had a large party and service was quick and our server was so nice! I enjoyed my stay and would recommend to anyone traveling to the Island!
