We stayed overnight on the island at the Chippewa and were impressed with the staff. Bart the front desk manager was extremely nice and accommodating. We got a room upgrade which was a pleasant surprise as well. Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer to enjoy the upgraded room and explore the island more. All in all it was a nice trip and the Chippewa hotel was great, we would recommend staying here and would totally visit again.

August 20, 2016

We stayed there Aug 2016 and was impressed with all of the staff. Very professional and courteous. The rooms are beautifully decorated. It’s our second time and can’t wait to go again.


We were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary and had never been to Mackinac Island. The Chippewa made our stay extra special. We ate two meals at the Pink Pony and the food was great. Thank you for all you did to make this special trip a wonderful memory. I would highly recommend staying at the Chippewa!

Georgetown IN

We stayed at the end of Sep. for 3 nights and this was truly the highlight of our roadtrip. This was a “girl’s getaway” for 2 of us that had not been up to Mackinac for a “few” decades. Let me start with the staff, Nicole at the front desk is a gem, Joel, the waitress in the dining room is a treasure, both of these young ladies went out of their way to answer questions, and give island tips. I would hire either of them for any job in a minute. Our suite #402 has to have the best view on island…waking up to the clip-clop of horse hooves on the street below was magical, yet the quietness at night was wonderful. I would not stay anywhere else in the future. The Pink Pony restaurant has wonderful food and views…I cannot wait to return…Many thanks again to the staff and hotel for making our trip truly perfect.

Gimli, Manitoba

Fabulous! The rooms are well appointed and the beds super comfy. I love sitting on the balcony watching the sun rise and drinking Mackinac Island Fudge Coffee-it doesn’t get better than this!!

Indianapolis IN

Rooms were clean, Large and well kept. Service staff were very friendly and professional. Had Breakfast at the restaurant and the meals were fine. Prices weren’t all that low, but one of the lowest on the Island.

Pinckney MI

Seven of my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Chippewa Hotel on Mackinac Island. We take a trip together for a few days annually. This vacation was right up there with our CA and NY trips. The staff and our room at the Chippewa were just perfect. Thank you.

Lowell MI

This was our 3rd stay at the “Chip” and it was great. We would not stay at any other hotel. Everyone is helpful and friendly. Thank you so much.

Frankenmuth, MI

We had the 3rd floor suite at the end adjacent to the marina. What a great room overlooking beautiful Haldimand Bay. The best was the awesome Chip staff – the front desk personnel, dock porters, and Pony bartenders are the best. The front desk mgr is incredibly nice, personable, and helpful. We stayed twice at the Chip this yr. Will always return!

Iron River MI

My wife and I have been coming here for years and as usual it was a wonderful time. We just love the “Chip” and are already planning for next years visit.

Sylvania OH

We ended a two week road trip through WI and MI at your hotel. It was the highlight of the trip. The Chippewa is beautiful. The food and drink are outstanding. The staff is kind, courteous and helpful. We hope to return some day. Next time we will reserve a room on the 3rd or 4th floor as to avoid some of the night time street noise. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Enumclaw WA

The Chippewa is a ‘great’ place to stay in every respect. ‘Great’ staff, clean, comfortable rooms. The Pink Pony has ‘great’ food, a top notch attentive staff and we’ve had a ‘great’ time each time we’ve been there. For what more could you ask?

Williamston MI

We found Chippewa by going online to find a hotel on the island to stay for our 25th Anniversary. We had the best time ever! It was very cozy and we felt like we were at home not a hotel! The food at the Pink Pony was delicious. After dinner we spent a few hours at the very friendly bar. It was very relaxing. We were not disappointed with our stay here. Most definitely would stay here again. The price was good too! We would recommend staying here to our family and friends!

Crest Hill IL

We love the Chippewa and have been staying there for over 20 years. Way back when it was the “old” rooms, no air, no TV, etc. It never disappoints. We love Mackinac Island’s atmosphere, people and the hotel. Always clean and friendly! Keep on keeping on with what you do!

Greenville MI

The staff at the Chippewa was extremely friendly as soon as I arrived with my three sons. We were treated like family the entire stay. Our room was lovely with sailboat theme and I loved the Lilac Tree Spa toiletries. It was a weekend of sheer bliss! Thank you to the wonderful staff for making our stay so pleasant.

Ypsilanti MI

Absolute perfection again! Check in was a breeze…and thanks again for the upgrade. Every employee was friendly and always greeted by smiles. Even saw Bart downtown after his shift, and asked how things were going. Just one example of the ‘extra step’ the Chip does for it’s guests. We are already discussing another trip this year.

Wyoming, MI

Our first stay a the Chippewa–our new favorite hotel on Mackinac Island! The staff were exemplary! The hotel itself elegant, luxurious, updated and spotlessly clean! Views were fantastic! Love it! Love it! Love it!

Port Huron MI

Perfect stay in all respects. We loved our suite on the fourth floor overlooking the marina, very well decorated and maintained. The Pink Pont and Harbor View Restaurant are local treasures. The staffs of the hotel and dining areas were friendly, efficient, and eager to make our experience a good one. Mission accomplished! We’ll see you again next summer.

Lagro IN

An enjoyable place to stay. A friendly and helpful staff. This is the place to stay when visiting Mackinac Island. Plus only steps from the Pink Pony.

Martin MI

Everyone here was really friendly. We enjoyed our stay very much. We liked it so much we were going to extend our trip and stay another night but unfortunately our room was not available. The food at the Pink Pony was excellent. We were in the deluxe harbor view room on the first floor and the view was lovely. The only thing we would’ve changed was the weather, and the hotel has nothing to do with that, haha.

Columbus OH

The Chippewa is our favorite Hotel on the island. We had two of our teen granddaughters with us this weekend and they were impressed. Thank you for keeping it so clean and inviting. We will return!

Davison MI

We’ve been coming to the Chippewa with our whole family, plus friends, for eleven years now. As always, perfect rooms, friendly staff, year after year.

Hillsdale MI

The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The room overlooked main street and it was pleasant waking up to the sound of hooves falling on the pavement. I’ll definitely be staying here the next time I stay on the island.

Ubly MI

I now know that I made a mistake and stayed at another Hotel. I did however eat at your restaurant and socialize at the Pink Pony. What a wonderful experience eating and drinking at your place. I will not make that mistake again. The Chippewa will be my reservation on my next visit to the Island. I also wanted to send a special thanks to an employee of yours by the name of Sam Minzey. She was very helpful with answering our questions and guiding us to great places on the Island. She should be the Mayor of Mackinac Island!!!

Medina OH

It was a great weekend. Our 20th anniversary. The Hotel was clean the staff was helpful and approachable. Our room faced main street you could here the horse drawn buggys clop down the street. Just amazing. I would recommend this hotel.

Hatfield II
Lansing MI

My friend flew in from Oregon, and we stayed at the Chippewa Hotel in a lakeside suite. It was wonderful! We walked the perimeter of the island and the interior another day, we could relax in our suite after a long day. The Pink Pony was our dining place. So cozy, everyone there is so friendly. Another wonderful thing about the hotel is that’s where my Grandmother worked 100 years ago. She met my Grandfather who was in the Coast Guard next door. Extra fun to stay there. I’ll be back in the fall. Best Hotel and dining experience on the Island!

Rodney MI

The Chippewa Hotel was an excellent place to stay. The staff was friendly and the rooms very clean and comfortable. The location was great! I am glad we chose the Chippewa and would definitely choose it again!

Lomax IL

What a wonderful experience. Already making plans for another trip. Don’t change a thing .

Clare MI

Been to the island many many times in my life but I have never stayed on the island itself. needless to say it was well worth it. seeing the island lit up at night on the streets was really cool to see, and the hotel was great. if your only gonna visit mackinac island once, I highly recommend staying on the island overnight, and this is a great place to stay

Lansing MI

Beautiful room, fantastic staff, great food at Pink Pony, and a perfect location on the Island. Why stay anywhere else?

Macomb MI

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in “the tulip room”! So cheerful and we could see lots of sights from the windows, quiet, comfortable and very adequate!

Levering MI

A great hotel with very nice two room suites. Staff was very helpful and breakfasts at the Pink Pony were very good. Sitting on the porch overlooking the harbor was peaceful. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Valencia CA

Loved our stay. Everyone was so professional. Our breakfast was wonderful. Definitely recommend the Chippewa and would definitely stay there again.

Killbuck, OH

Wonderful suite. The Jacuzzi tub was wonderful. The only downside was that some sound can be heard from people on the third floor moving around but not enough to be distracting


What a wonderful stay. I cannot complain about a single thing. Great view of water from our room, great food, great service throughout hotel. Kids loved the cookies and milk delivery every night. Great location across from the grocery store and fort as well. We will be staying again next year!

Farmington Hills MI

Our room was amazing with a wonderful view – so nice and clean. We enjoyed the breakfast as well. The girl behind the desk was so helpful. Hope to return soon.

Harrison Twp. MI

We really enjoyed our first stay at the Chippewa Hotel. The staff was super and the view was great. Our family of 5 stayed in a harborview 2 room suite for 3 nights. We enjoyed being near the grassy area of the fort and the marina. We ate several meals at the Pink Pony. It did not disappoint. We brought our own bikes and toured the island several times. I can’t think of anything to be improved upon. I will definitely book this hotel for next year too.

Westlake OH

Great location downtown with casual / dinner dining on the water & great entertainment. Staff friendly & rooms kept well, we stayed in 3 different rooms (added a 3rd night after our planned 2 night stay), but the transition was effortless..both street view & harbor were nice. Best to request upper level (4th floor)…the last night was a bit disruptive with the floor creaking from above. Also disappointing they were out of their main pink patio T’s, but overall highly recommend! Great place to stay or stop into while on the island…great view, food, drinks & entertainment!

Marysville OH

Great place to stay on Main Street. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Only downside was the elevator was pretty small. We would definitely stay here again!

Kalamazoo MI

Stunning view, great location. We had a harbor-view suite that slept 6, had a large sitting area with small fridge and microwave. Perfect view of the harbor, my 78 year old dad was enchanted with this visit and enjoyed sitting on the deck morning and night!

Fairfax VA

Our 50th, Like the new Buick commercial says ” O MY ” The 6 rooms we stayed in were the best ! The Honeymoon suite was the best room we ever had in our whole 50 yr. married life. You staff and service was beyond expectations. Thank You one in all for making our 50th so special. VICK

Waterford MI

This trip was a gift from our children and employees. We had a room overlooking the water and it was HUGE, clean, and the bed was SO comfortable. Everyone was helpful and nice. Loved the island and all there is to do. Will be back and bring family with us. The Chippewa has a perfect location and the restaurant is also very good.

Versailles OH

Great hotel! Clean, friendly, good food and great bar! Hope to come back soon!!


It is my third time staying at your hotel and as always it was great!

Brighton MI

Have stayed at the Chippewa numerous times over the last 10/12 years. It is by far our favorite. Everyone is courteous and very helpful, rooms are clean. Will be back again next year.

Chicago IL

We stayed in a single-bed room on the 4th floor. The room was very small but clean, nicely decorated, and had a nice view. The mattress was firm and comfortable. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The room even had a Keurig coffee maker, which was a nice bonus. Aside from the small elevator, the only negative about the place is the location of the jacuzzi. The jacuzzi, which was large, clean, and could easily hold 25 people, was located directly next to the restaurant so that people dining could see everyone in the jacuzzi and walk into the jacuzzi area. It would have been nice if they had blocked it somehow to add some privacy. Other than that, everything about our stay was great. We would stay again. Also, we added a breakfast option for $10, which included an entree, drink, taxes, and gratuity. This is definitely a good deal if you like a hearty breakfast. There were many options to choose from. the food was tasty, and the coffee was some of the best we’ve had.

Farmington Hills MI

We stayed two nights, had a great time! The room was clean, and very enjoyable for a family of 4! We enjoyed being so close to town, and the views were incredible.

Canton MI

Awesome quaint room and great location! The room overlooked the street and could sit on the one of the beds and look and the front of the fort. We had a small issue as the shower it did function. However, we would definitely stay here again!

Haslett MI

Hotel in a great location and though rooms are small, they are comfortable and pleasant. We enjoyed our stay and the restaurant & bar on the ground level….such a good view of the docks and Lake!

Arrived on your beautiful Island for a family wedding. Wondrously and pleasantly surprised with your Hotel and location. Terrific help and staff from the moment we stepped off the ferry. Clean and hospitable rooms. Pink Pony a bonus……..wouldn’t stay anywhere else when on the Island again! Thanks to the entire staff, one and all!!

Radnor PA

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Chippewa! This was our second year to stay at the Chippewa.

A special hello to Josh and Archie.

We’ve been coming to Mackinac Island for 11 years and the Chippewa has been our home way from home.

Thank you Chippewa Hotel and the whole staff….including the amazing Ponk Pony, for another great visit! See you next year (if not sooner).

Wyoming, MI

We had a great visit. Awesome service all the way around. Archie made sure our bags got to and from the hotel. The desk and restaurant staff were excellent. They gave us helpful tips and recommendations of where to go on the island. The room was awesome and comfortable with a great view of the harbor. The room was clean and quiet. The housekeeping staff took car of all of our needs. We can’t wait to return.

Spring Lake MI

This was our first stay on the island. The Chippewa hotel was the perfect fit for us: good rate, clean, good location, and most importantly excellent staff. Brittany helped make special arrangements for my breast feeding wife. Without her help, our trip would have been far less desirable. When we return to the island we will be staying at the Chippewa again.

Canton MI

It was our second stay on the Island and all I can say is Rum Runner paradise! The patio was the place to hang out ,the staff great ! The view none better felt like this must be Heaven! Hanging out on the patio made our stay that much more relaxing ,really hated to go back home. We can not wait to return! To all of you that work , live or stay, on the Island you are so lucky everyday to experience what we had only 4 days to enjoy! Rock on Pink Pony staff and keep those RUM RUNNERS flowin and don’t forget the floater! Please send us the runner recipe we are trying to get our favorite bar here in town to make it their summer drink! Till next time just have one for us! JIM AND PAM LONG SAY THANKS!

Tallahassee FL

We have been to Mackinac Island three times in the past 10 years. We have stayed at the Grand Hotel, Mission Point, and the Chippewa. We thought our suite at the Chippewa was by far the nicest room. Very spacious, and practically on the water. Great view of the bay from the balcony on our room. Staff was very helpful. I would stay here again.

Rochester Hills MI

My son and I visit Mackinaw Island each year to play golf. We always stay at the Chippewa. The room rates are very reasonable, the location is perfect, and the service we receive is the best.

We will definitely be back next Summer.

Rockford MI

We visit the island every year for 5 years and always stay at the Chippewa. The staff is so accommodating and the rooms are beautiful. We always get a balcony room on the 4th floor so that we can see the fort and the ships. The entertainment on the patio is always pleasant and the heated wading pool gives us a nice break. Worth every penny. We will be back. Every year we try and take someone with us who has never visited the island.

Such a great visit! Wonderful room and location. Thank you to the excellent wait staff at the Pink Pony.

Kalamazoo MI

Had a great stay at the Chippewa Hotel again. We love getting the family suite on the upper floor. We have plenty of room and privacy for the family. Your staff was again very friendly and helpful. We ate breakfast with you both mornings and this was delicious and convenient. We enjoy being downtown and part of the night life. Hitting the bars and people watching is always a fun event. Being downtown allows for everyone to do what they want during the day, and easily come and go from the room. We enjoyed the hot tub both days and love being out by the water, whether on the Pink Pony patio, the hot tub, or our own private patio in our room. Hope to see you again next year!

Clean room with a great view. So grateful with the reception staff gave my little Yorkie service dog. Most even remembered her name and one on the boat off the island made a point of petting her and calling her by name,

Bighton MI

This was our first time visiting Mackinac Island and the Chippewa, and we had a wonderful time. Our room was beautiful and my favorite spot was the balcony.

It was our first time on the island. We stayed at the Chippewa. It was WONDERFUL!! It was so clean and quiet. The staff was great! We weren’t sure on places to see and go and the staff really came through and gave us suggestions. My daughter loved the beds! She said she never has slept so good in a hotel before. It was her 21st birthday so it was great that everything was perfect.

    This was my 7th visit with the Chicago to Mackinac Yacht Races, but first time staying at the Chippewa. We have always spent a LOT of time in the Pink Pony, which gets pretty rowdy with all those sailors, so I was a little apprehensive about staying at the hotel above it. Our room was right above the bar and I did get a little noise from the partying, but it wasn’t bad. Nothing my white noise app couldn’t drown out. The room was huge compared with others I’ve stayed in on the island and very well-appointed. All linens and furnishings were fresh and clean and the location is really perfect. I’ll probably book there next year and possibly even the same room. It was quite a luxury to be able to run up the stairs to use our own bathroom instead of waiting in the lines at the Pony!

    We had a super time this past weekend at the Chippewa for our 35th wedding anniversary. We stayed here also in 1981 and decided, after 35 years, to start making this an annual event!
