Reviewed 9 August 2012

After reviewing every possible option for staying the weekend on the Island I finally picked the Harbour View inn B&B - Although the bed and breakfast idea scared me a bit (don't like sharing bathrooms) the phone rep assured me all their b&b rooms had their own bathrooms! Upon check in everything was so beautiful. Room was immaculate and customer service was great all around. Considering other possible options in comparable prices the Harbour View Inn exceeded my expectations and I can't wait until my next trip to the island!

This was a getaway for friends. Four of us ladies shared a room in the carriage house with a sitting area, and it was very roomy with a nice porch. Great location! Loved it! We enjoyed everything about Mackinac Island. Two days is just the perfect amount of time....

We were pleasantly surprised by the entire stay at the Harbor View Inn! The gentleman who did our reservation was a joy to interact with. It left us eagerly waiting for our trip to find out more about this place.

We stayed in a standard room in the B & B that had a king sized bed. The was immaculate! Well designed, well layed-out given the amount of furniture, and also well cleaned. I believe our favorite part was enjoying the wrap around porch in the evenings.

We've already booked a return trip!

Room Tip: They give the same rates over the phone as you find on the travel sites...skip the web and call to b...

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in July. We booked last minute and this hotel literally had the only rooms left on the island, so we didn't have a choice and reserved here. The hotel is a charming and quaint old home, and given everything on Mackinac is fairly close together, the location was fine. The beds were SO uncomfortable, and the walls are very very thin... you can hear EVERY step people take. We were in the back guest house, rooms were a good size and showers were nice. Had a balcony (shared with the other rooms on the floor, but we were the only ones to use ours during the stay, it appeared.) Big pro is the AC, it was record heat while we were there. Also, as everyone mentions, CHEAP bike rentals. Front desk and other waitstaff VERY VERY friendly and kind. Breakfast not bad, pastries/bread, fruit, yogurt, juices. If you want more, the Pancake House is a short walk down the street and offers yummy options too. I would stay here again if I had to... if I had a choice I would probably pick a hotel closer to the center of town. Overall, average hotel but not horrible, just not great.

I was so pleasantly surprised. When we arrived they placed us in the Harbour View B&B right next door. Our room was lovely and larger than expected. The bathroom was small with a pedestal sink (no counter top) but there was an additional sink in the bedroom. The only negative was that there was no air conditioning but there were 2 fans in the closet.

Our travelling companions were not so lucky. They were placed in the tiniest room imaginable and their bathroom was across the hall. (they paid the same amount for the room!) It didn't even have a closet - just an open bar/rod to hang clothes in the corner. I would have been furious. BUT, it did have A/C.

I would absolutely stay there again, if I am guaranteed a larger room. It is a perfect distance from town so it is quiet at night. You can rent bikes directly from them at a slightly discounted rate vs the other bike shops on the island.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a bathroom attached!

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Harbour View Inn and the Inn is absolutely beautiful inside and out. As we walked up to the Inn we were immediately pleased with the colonial style of the building with two very inviting verandas. In fact during our two days, we spent alot of time sitting on the veranda and people watching. Only a couple of blocks from downtown, which allows you to quickly walk to the action and return to the quiet of the Inn when the day is over. We stayed in the main house and really appreciated the air conditioning. The continental breakfast was pretty basic. Room was very clean and decorated in the victorian island style. We will definitely return to the Harbour View Inn.

We stayed at the Harbour View Inn for two nights. The staff was nice and helpful especially the older man working there. An instant turn off for us was the lack of toilet paper. There was only about 1/3 of a roll when we got to the room. Not keen on having to ask for something that is very important to a nights stay! The room was clean and nicely decorated. The AC and beds were nice but the TV was a little dated. The ice machine was a bit of a walk to get to. It was at the end of the hallway on the floor below us. The walls are paper thin and sleeping was very difficult.
Overall it was a fine place but only worth about 1/2 of what we paid.
