Staff and rooms couldn't be nicer but I was disappointed that the pool and hot tub—the reasons we selected Lakeview—remained tepid or ice-cold throughout our stay. Staff and management gave different reasons: the hotel's indoor temperature was affected by the cold outside(?), too many people were in the hot tub, they only run the heater in the morning), none of which made sense. The cold water in our room didn't work, though we had hot water. Only when we asked at check out what was being done about the pool issues did the staff offer to refund $50 of our $500 (two night) stay. She said the refund would appear immediately that afternoon. I have yet to receive anything. I found the staff to be exceptional in sympathy but management did little in the way of action except make excuses. I regret choosing to pay a premium price at the Lake View because of the promise of a pool and hot tub instead of paying less for what would be ultimately the same amenities at a comparable location. Ironically, I was there on assignment for a travel story — "Yes, Mackinac Island is as fun for kids as it is for couples" — for a regional publication. I never slam any operation in print; every business has good and bad days. But in this case, I gave management several opportunities to rectify or at least offer an honest explanation of the problem, and they continue to advertise a (broken) pool and hot tub without discounting their prices to reflect their true offerings. Will not return or recommend.

Hello Lynda, we empathize and understand your frustration with the temperature of the pool and subsequent use of the hot tub. Our staff did everything that they could to rectify the situation. I do want to make sure that proper credits were given and received as it should be for each night of your stay, and were processed at the time of your departure. Your experience is not indicative of the level of service Lake View guest's and come to experience. I would look forward to discussing your lodging experience with us at a time convenient for you. I do appreciate you choosing Lake View.

This location was perfectly situated in the heart of Mackinaw Island. Stores, restaurants, and the ferries were right by the hotel. The hotel itsel was perfect! Since this is so close to the bars and restaurants, it was a bit noisy in the evening, but it was as expected and we enjoyed the energy of the island. It did not keep us from getting a wonderful night's rest. I highly recommend Lake View Hotel!

Beautiful property and location. Hard to sleep. Curtains do not block out light. Staff ok but not very helpful. Pricy for what you get.
