We enjoyed dinner and breakfast at the attached restaurant. Also enjoyed an evening at the Pink Pony. Hotel is in very convenient location with a small grocery across...

I reserved my room online which was described as "twice the size of a normal room with a sitting area", the pictures show a sitting area within the room.

We stayed in a suite it was a good size room with a nice balcony. The bathroom is a lot bigger then most hotels My only complaint was the ac didn't work very good so we had to get a box fan. It is in a great location across from the market.

We loved our weekend at the Chippewa. The hotel staff were so great with our large group and the location right on main street can't be beat! Our queen suite was plenty big for our family of 5 to stay comfortably.

We stayed at the Chippewa three nights during their last week of the season, and enjoyed every minute. Our room was on the lake side with a scenic view of the bay - impeccably clean, comfortable, relaxing - and a perfect central location for exploring. Breakfast and dinner each day at the Chippewa's Pink Pony restaurant ... excellent food and...

My son loved his first trip to Mackinac Island - particularly watching the ferries come and go. The hotel is in a very convenient location across the street from a wonderful market and some of the best pizza we have ever had. The hotel staff are friendly and accommodating and the hotel restaurant is top notch.

There were three of us couples on a Great Lakes Circle Tour and this was our first time on Mackinac Island. All 3 of our rooms were harbor view--if you can swing it, it makes all the difference in the experience. Perfect view of the sunrise from the patios. Rooms were meticulous and comfortable. Staff turned down the beds each...

The week of Oct. 19th, we were making good time on our way back from Niagara Falls, Canada, and decided to see if we could wrangle a room for one night on Mackinac Island. After calling several hotels with no luck, we almost gave up but we made one more call to the Chippewa Hotel and got a $70 room....
