Reviewed 12 August 2014

Our luggage was handled for us so we only had a very short walk to the hotel. The hotel was very beautiful and their front porch had wonderful rocking chairs where you could sit and watch all the horse drawn carriages go by. If we looked to he right we could see the beach and all the flying kites in the ski. Breathtaking!!!

I probably won't be staying here again. I've stayed at several of the other hotels on the island and this one is nothing special. Plus, this hotel is WAY MORE NOISY compared to the other hotels. The noise from the pool makes an afternoon nap awfully difficult!! What's even worse was the air conditioner unit we had in our room. It was a portable unit that sits on the floor and vents out the window. These portable units don't cool very efficiently and they are extremely loud! Trying to sleep at night with this thing running was like trying to sleep next to a freight train. We tried turning it off but then the room was simply too hot.
During this stay, we stayed 2 nights at the Lake View and 2 nights at another hotel a few doors down. Both hotels were about the same price per night, but we thought there was a night and day difference between the two establishments. The Lake View wasn't as clean and the overall condition of the Lake View seemed somewhat deteriorated compared to its neighbor.

Room Tip: Room 340 had a very noisy, inefficient air conditioner.

This hotel is located right across from the ferry docks and was perfect for a stay on the island. We were right in the main area and could easily walk wherever we wanted to go. The hotel was clean and our room was big. We especially liked that the toilet and tub area were in a seperate room from the sink and mirror area. Our room overlooked the indoor pool which was very nice. Breakfast in the morning was good, but nothing fancy. The hotel has a nice front porch area to sit and relax too. We would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in July 2014 and loved it. The location was perfect and the staff was very helpful. We chose one the Mackinac Memories package and enjoyed all the tours. The included breakfast was basic, but worthwhile; you can purchase 3 eggs or a 3 egg omelet to go with the breads, yogurt, fruit or donuts for $5. As some of the other reviews have commented on, although stunning, the pool in the center can be quite noisy. Also loved the 3rd floor porch view of Main St, especially to enjoy a beverage in the evening.

This hotel is right on the main drag, where most of the action (people, horses, wagons, and all that comes with them) is. It's not the best lodging on the island, but then it's not $700 a night, either. We stayed in one of the older sections of the hotel, with a view on a side street...and found it charming! The front porch is an excellent people-watching location. Shepler'sFerry Line porter delivered our luggage to our room, then picked it up the morning we checked out, and held it for us until we left the island later in the day. Without a doubt, we would stay at the Lake View again.

This hotel is wonderful! The staff is always very accomodating. My daughter has a medication that needs to be refrigerated and since there are no refrigerators in the rooms the staff made sure I knew where the communal fridge was and I had access to it 24 hours a day. The location is the best as it is so close to the ferry dock. Our room was nice - clean and cool for a summer day - we were on the 2nd floor in a turret room and the kids LOVED the fact that they could look out the window and see the horses so close! I love everything about this hotel and we have stayed at several of them up and down main street - this is the one we continually come back to as they never disappoint!

We had a good time at the Lake View Hotel on July 25th and 26th, 2014. All of the rooms were great - we had 15 of them - and the service was exceptional. Goodfellows restaurant was good and the omelette in the morning ($5) with the free continental breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: I had a corner room with 2 queen beds and it was roomy and comfortable. All of them seemed to be lar...
