We stayed at the Lakeview Hotel for our first wedding anniversary at the beginning of Oct. 2012. The hotel was right across the street from the ferry service and a porter greeted us and took our bags to the hotel for us. We stayed in room 337 which overlooked the indoor pool and hot tub. There was alot of noise from the pool however since the pool closed at 10 pm we didn't have a problem getting sleep. The beds were more comfortable than any other hotel beds that I have slept on. The staff was courteous and very accommodating. Goodfellow's Restaurant had great food and service at decent prices. Overall we had a great experience at The Lakeview Hotel and would stay again if we were visiting in the future.

Mackinac Island is a wonderful place. The hotels can be pricey, however. That being said, the Lake View was very competitive, and I feel was a good value when compared to the other hotels available. They have a terrific in-door pool and hot tub, which is nice because it can be cool on the island, plus it was great for the kids. I appreciated the friendly staff. Let's face it, things go wrong sometimes, and having a great staff offers piece mind should anything arise. The Lake View is located right downtown and in good proximity to most of the shops and restaurants. There are some fancier hotels, but you will pay double the price. That's why I feel that the Lake View is a good value compares to other places. PS...the bellman, Byron is fantastic, so tip him good!

Stayed the last weekend in September. Loved the view out our window, we could see all the ferry boats come in and leave and part of main street. The free breakfast was nice and had great choices. Loved the porch, great to have a big porch and lobby while waiting for room or spending the day after check out. It was nice to go sit on the porch and take a break while waiting for our ferry, lobby was great for guys to check their football gaime. Grandkids loved the pool. We are booked for next year!!!

Room Tip: Book early!! The 4th floor has great views!!

Just returned from the island and our 3 night stay at the Lakeview Hotel. Our experience was "wow"! Nice size room, very clean, the front desk persons were excellent representatives for the hotel. The had all the answers, tips and were just great!
We found the free breakfast to be very adequate. For an additional $5 you can get a custom made omelet that was really, really good, and big enough my wife and I split it.

Great location to get to most everything with a reasonable walk. We WILL stay here again on our next trip to the island!

Room Tip: Rooms 224 and 226 are right above the bar/lounge and can hear the noise from boisterous customers.

Just returned from a 2 day stay at this hotel for business trip. The conference was being held at the Grand Hotel (which is WAY too expensive). Short walk up the hill is palatable with the reasonable rates of this hotel. If you are looking for a cookie-cutter chain-type hotel, this is not it. The place has character! Older structure with interesting room shapes. On-site bar/restaurant, indoor pool was nice. Great location. Comfortable bed. The provided breakfast was a little disappointing. However, staff were friendly. I read the reviews prior to staying at this hotel. Do the same, check out the photos. They are a pretty accurate depiction of what you're getting. This hotel is a bit less 'frilly' than some of the others (but so is the price). I would stay there again. Good value.
