My husband and I traveled to Mackinac Island for a three day, two night trip for our first anniversary! We booked the Lake View after several of our "first" choices were already full 3 weeks prior to our trip. Needless to say, I think it was meant to be because we were quite impressed with the hotel! We got a great deal with a "no cancellations/upfront payment" price -- about $164 per night, staying Sunday and Monday nights. The location is very easy--right across the street from the Star Line ferry docks. We got off the ferry and were immediately at the hotel. The bag service was seamless and check in was quick!
The room was Victorian style, with two queen beds. Our room overlooked the atrium where the pool and hot tub are. It was really nice to have a swim and sit in the hot tub after a whirlwind day of biking and hiking. The bathroom was very clean and everything worked great. Since it was September, we didn't need to use the A/C at all and chose to crack the window to hear the sound of the horses clip clopping along outside. We thought it added to the charm! Beds were comfy and we slept great.
The continental breakfast at Goodfellow's wasn't the best I have ever eaten but it filled us up, was free and was convenient so can't complain! They had an assortment of muffins, bread, cereal, etc. They offered $5 omelettes but we didn't have those.
All in all, we were quite pleased with the hotel. We loved Mackinac Island and will definitely be back.
