Pleased with room location to everything, nice place. Porch with chairs to sit and watch the street. Nice staff, clean room. Will stay here again.

Nice hotel close to the terminal

Posted May 25, 2015
The hotel is in front of the exit of the terminal. The room smell with chlorine because the pool is facing to the room.

A Classic

Posted May 25, 2015
Location: This hotel is located right on main street, across from the Star line ferry. Everything from dinning to bike rentals, to shopping is located there.
I have only stayed on the Island twice and both times at the Classic Lake View Hotel. The first time being 13years ago, then again Memorial weekend. I will say that to enjoy the island I probably would choose a non holiday weekend, very busy. I checked in early, but the room was still not available until 3pm which is the check in time. The lobby was enchanting with its Victorian appeal. The pool was clean and inviting. The hotel restaurant Goodfellows was very good, recommend the Grilled Chicken strawberry salad, delicious. The waitstaff were pleasant, and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was abundant, with omelets to order for an additional $5. I loved how you could look down from the second and third floor balconies overlooking main street.

Pros: See above.
It was the first time we did not stay at the Grand Hotel. We were happy that the Lakeview was located so close to everything.

Free is Not Free

Posted Oct 26, 2014 on Hotels
The hotel claims to have a free continental breakfast. What you get is a choice of some fruit, stale doughnuts, toast, or yogurt. They do charge you to get an omelette that is located in the "free" continental breakfast line. They completely neglect to tell you this until you're stuck in line. My wife and I were not very impressed by this, and we were not the only ones. This should have been clearly outlined. We will not be staying there again.

We apologize that there was confusion on this matter. The breakfast is provided by Goodfellow's and is free with an omelette that is only $5.00 if you choose to add it.

Great hotel downtown Mackinac Island

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: downtown, great amenities, just overall nice experience.
Location: Downtown Mackinac island, so everything is right there.
Great experience. When it was raining and cold the first night, they had everything we needed right at the hotel. Had a great dinner at Goodfellows restaurant, then drinks at Goodfellows Wings and Things. Also have a pool, hot tub and spa. So, if the weather is bad, you'll have a great time right at the hotel. The room was great, they think of little things like hooks to hang things in the bathroom.

Beautiful old hotel

Posted Oct 18, 2014 on Hotels
Sauna did not work. adequate continental breakfast but omelet station an extra $5. Directly across from Star Ferry and very close to other ferry lines. Great location. Large room over seeing the pool and hot tub. Nice front porch with chairs. Good restaurant.
