“Nice, clean and comfy”
Reviewed 21 July 2011

We've been to Mackinac Island a few times and this last time we stayed there with the girl scouts as part of their summer camp program. We had all meals at the hotel and they were very good...for a buffet. There was nothing fancy about it. Nothing made to order, but there was a lot of eggs, meats, cereals, drinks, etc. The staff was always on the ball and made sure to restock as needed. The rooms were certainly compact, but they were nice and clean. The beds were comfortable as well. The girls especially enjoyed the spa pool. I don't really know how so many girls got into that small pool, but they were happy and cool, so that's all that mattered. Overall, it was a nice stay.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor and the rooms were mostly the same, except the ones farthest away from the...

We stayed here on July 3rd, 4th and 5th in 2011. We checked in and the people at the desk were nice. We were able to check in early without delay. The two Queen room was a decent size, but fairly "bare bones". Just a tiny TV with few channels, no phone, fridge, safe or iron. No big deal considering the price and thankfully it had a good air conditioner! NOT the portable kind that required you to empty buckets!

The breakfast buffet was about average. Nothing special. The Burrito place inside was quite good and would go there again. We never tried the lunch buffet.

Beds are clean and comfortable. My mom complained that the pillows were not soft enough, but I had no problems with them.

My only advice is that the next upgrade should be to some 37-40" LCD TVs in the deluxe rooms. In other hotels they came with them. It's nice being able to watch a movie late at night on a bigger screen. I know it's nice to save electricity, but TVs are cheap these days. Other hotels offered more channels as well. This is a budget hotel, so I guess this explains it.

I'd visit again, this is now perhaps our 2nd favorite hotel on the island (out of only 3 we tried). We may go here again to save a little money.

We really enjoyed the people at the Murray Hotel. The staff was especially friendly with our two children (2 years and 6 months). The rooms were quite small which wouldn't have been a big deal if it was just my wife and myself. The rooms were clean. We had a room directly above a 1st floor shop and the shop played music that was disturbing during the day (naptime) but was closed and quiet at night. The location was fantastic as you walked out into the middle of town. Small pool was fine with my family. Overall, would stay there again.

We stayed at the Hotel two years ago. Loved it then. This time the bed was lumpy and we were lucky to get an hour of sleep. we were on the 2nd floor and right next to the roof. so when the music finally shut off at the bar at 1:30 am the rain came down real loud on the roof.we definitly will be making a day trip this time and will not spend another night in this hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a new bed
