“Stay at Chippewa Hotel”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

The room I thought I was getting was not available and I ending up staying on the first floor rather than the top floor....that being said, it was still all good. It was cool outside so there was little activity around the hot tub and outside bar....so it turned out fine....I would not have been happy if the weather had been warmer and those areas were being used....

Very happy with the hotel and staff....Room was comfortable and convienent....Nothing bad to stay....would stay there again.

This hotel is absolutely beautiful! The rooms on the lakeside have an unbelievable view. Additionally, the service provided by the entire staff is second to none. My girlfriend and I only stayed one night at this hotel but plan on returning for three nights next year since we enjoyed our stay so much. By the way, the Pink Pony bar inside has an awesome atmosphere and the food is delsh!

We were there during a cold, dreary two days and still had an incredible time on this magical island that I remember from my childhood. My most recent visit was 30 years ago, and despite the weather we were not disappointed. Our room, facing the lake, was phenomenal--spacious, private, quiet and relaxing. We arrived early and our luggage was taken immediately to the hotel. We strolled down Main Street, but were called within 30 minutes and able to move into our beautiful room. This was my 3rd visit to the island, but my husband's first. Chippewa was beautiful, clean and amazingly located.

Room Tip: Loved our two room suite on the water! Very spacious bathroom

We had wanted to visit Mackinac Island for awhile. Vacation planning or lack of, enabled us to do some places that normally we wouldn't have enough vacation time to go for a visit. Early June, the hotel rates on this island are a little lower and off we went. Mackinac Island is truly like stepping back in time. The Chippewa is very good at recreating the time travel, while at the same time, offering up to date modern conveniences. The rooms are well equipped and clean. The hotel employees are very pleasant and professional. We had a toilet that had a leaky flapper and it was fixed, while we were at dinner. The hotel restaurants and lounges are very good. And the location can't be beat. Our room was facing the street, and we did not find the street noise to be an issue. We would definitely consider this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street are less expensive, but since one doesn't spend much time in their room...

This is a terrific property on main street in Mackinac Island. The hotel is kid friendly with complementary breakfast for the kids and good menu at the Pink Pony bar inside. We flew private and ended up getting fogged in and had to stay an extra day, not planned, but he staff found us another room and everyone made it an overall great trip. Thanks to the professional staff at the Chippewa!

Room Tip: The rooms on the water side are larger, we stayed in both! Both were nice, clean, and the beds were...

This is our 2nd stay at the Chippewa. We stayed in the Lakeview suite. Perfect for our family! On Main Street but overlooking the harbor. It provided a peaceful and relaxing retreat. The room was spacious and CLEAN ! There is a kitchenette that allowed us to prepare some simple meals. Very comfortable. Staff is very friendly. The giant hot tub was a huge amenity on the colder days : ). Only complaint is that it was a bit noisy from within the hotel, but we always travel with a noise maker so that helped! We will most certainly return!

We always stay in a water front suite. Love the separate sleeping area and living room. The location is perfect. Love the morning and evening view. The pinky pony is right in the same place. Music is always good.
