Mackinaw Island Hotels

Staying overnight in quaint Mackinaw Island Hotels is pure luxury!  Hotel owners wish to charm their visitors with exceptional services, amenities, views or sweet treats.  You'll feel like royalty when you awake to the sounds of Mackinac Island coming alive.  It's pure luxury sleeping in a quaint hotel, slipping downstairs for a delicious breakfast, grabbing your bike and heading out for a peaceful pedal before the first ferry boat arrives.  Plus, staying on the island makes us feel so pampered and special! 

Honestly, before I began researching for Mackinaw Island Hotels, I thought all hotels were well over $250 a night. I mean, I was always lead to believe you had to be rich to stay there.  I shocked to discover plenty of affordable options under $150 a night!  It's happy dance time!!  

Mackinaw Island Hotels are perfect for families, wedding parties, romance, getaways, groups, girls trips and more! 

Mackinaw Island Hotels have over 1,500 unique lodging rooms!

A little known fact is there are no franchise Mackinaw Island hotels on the island.  As such, these one-of-a-kind family owned hotels strive to provide you with an exceptional experience every time you visit.

TIP:  If you have your heart set on a couple specific Mackinaw Island hotels, it would be wise to book your rooms at least 6 months in advance to improve chances of room availability.  Of course, the time of year and day of the week greatly affect the room rates so the same room could be up to $200 more on a different date. 

While trying to compare Mackinaw Island Hotels in preparation for our next visit, I was unable to easily determine the location of each hotel. So to solve the problem, I created the map below listing a majority of the hotels on the island.  They are all assigned a letter that corresponds to the key below.  I hope you find the map super helpful!
