This is my second time staying at the Murray hotel and they always have the friendliest staff, lowest prices and most convenient location. If you do not own a bike then this is a good hotel to stay at because everything is right there for you. They upgraded our room for free because there was not many guests staying that...

The hotel was nice place to come sleep. The room isn't big enough to really hang out in, but for what it is it's perfect. A queen sized bed in a pint sized room with a view right on the main drag. We'd definitely stay here again.

A step back in time is the theme of the island, and the Murray is no exception. Our room was small but adequate with a full bathroom. We liked being right on Main Street within walking distance of everything. The staff was very friendly and there were no noisy people keeping us awake at night. The spa hot tub was...

What a lovely place to be in early autumn. We took advantage of a terrific end of season offer and spent 2 glorious days on this beautiful island in early October. The Murray Hotel is located smack in the downtown, so you are close to the hub of activity and the horse traffice. Mackinaw Island, as most know, has only...

Always stay here, very close to the Arnold Line ferry dock(cheapest way to get to the island), right in the center of town, large hottub/spa, you get your bags transferred, and if you get there early in the day, they will hold your bags for check in. Some of the rooms are on the small side, but always clean with...

The Old Word Charm is something special on Mackinac Island, but I think Murray Hotel has missed it a bit. The room we had was hilariously tiny (standard double) and out dated. They need to redo most of this hotel to keep the colonial charm, but improve the accommodations. On a side note, we think they have some of the...

I have stayed at the Murray for years and the experience is consistent. Quaint rooms with wallpaper and antiques and a great downtown location super close to Horn's, The Pink Pony and the ferries. I forgot to take a bathing suit, but would have loved to enjoy their outdoor hot tub recently. Their dock porter, Carlos, was a gem. Their...

What a fun place to stay. Vintage but modern. I room was on the backside of the hotel and the noise from the traffic was to a minimum. Second floor had a nice patio with the large hot tub. We were fortunate to have wonderful weather and enjoy the outdoor patio definitely would recommend this hotel.

I feel like this was one step up from the usual hotels. As a whole, the Murray Hotel was amazing! Every room and the hallways, have different pictures hanging from the walls. These are old pictures and very antique looking! My mom and I spent an hour going to the different floors to look at them all. They have a...
