This was our first stay/trip to the island. We selected the hotel based on suggestions from friends that had stayed here before. The food was excellent. Location was very convenient - close to everything. Staff very helpful. Room was small, we had a back side room.

Room Tip: Always shoot for a water view if at all possible -

Loved the staff and location. Great lawn and front porch to sit on and enjoy the view. Our room needed some updating had cracked tiles in bathroom, broken shutters and small old television. Room was clean.

For a few reasons, we have ended up staying here a few times over the last twenty years, even though it is far from our favorite.
The most think to know is that the hotel game is played with great seriousness. This hotel probably has more absolutely terrible rooms than most, and they are not afraid to dish them up. Once we initially got an attic room where you could literally not stand up in most of the room. Another time they tried to give us a room where the window actually opened up onto the porch. Just the thing to be able to monitor the comings and goings of guests all night.
But don't despair. This is a deceptively big place, and once we made it clear that no, we were not going to take the absolutely awful room offered, they quickly ponied up a reasonable one. Ya just gotta play the game!@

I am in Mackinac City and my luggage from Island House is not here. This has cost delays for my return flight home due to their carelessness.
They are blaming the people at Sheplers for not getting my luggage from the hotel to the dock. Island house brings luggage to the dock not the ferry company.

I stayed at the Island House recently from May 17-19, 2013, and had an amazing vacation! Our room had a spectacular view, was clean and very spacious compared to other hotels on the island. We booked a package that included two breakfasts and one dinner, and the food at the hotel was fantastic. But the best thing about the hotel was the staff - from the luggage porters, front desk staff, restaurant servers, to the bike rental staff, they were kind, courteous and helpful. My boyfriend proposed to me over a picnic lunch planned and coordinated with the help of one of the managers, Alana. She went out of her way to make this an unforgettable vacation and we are both so thankful to her and all of the staff! Would definitely stay here again, and plan on doing so!
