Grosse Pointe, Michigan
Reviewed 27 July 2014

The Murray hotel turned out to be a great experience. It was located just a few stores away from the Pink Pony and Horns in downtown Mac Island. It was also steps away from the Arnold Ferry Line-such an awesome location. We did however come in on Sheplers, but there was an attendant there from the hotel that took our...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We do feel that our downtown location is something that sets us apart from other hotels on the Island. I'm glad to hear that getting from Shepler's to the hotel was a quick and easy experience, and also that check-in was very smooth. I've also passed your review on...

We took the Arnold ferry over and the Murray Hotel was literally across the street. This was great in that we just walked our bags over or in some cases they will take them to your hotel for you. If you arrive early there is a place to hold your luggage until check in time. It was located on the...

After a 10 hour drive and 45 min ferry arrived at the hotel with my husband and grown son visiting us from San Diego. Had a 3 night reservation but only stayed 2 due to rainy weather. Hotel has excellent location near Arnold ferry. Staff was very friendly. Fudge is the best real creamy and smooth. Room was quaint, clean...

I booked a room at the Murray for myself and my 3 grandchildren. I am a fan of the older hotels that have character, and the Murray did not disappoint. The room was comfortable and beautiful. We had the breakfast bar and liked it very much. The only problem I had was that they wanted me to leave my luggage...

We have stayed at this hotel a few different times. It's location couldn't be better. Right downtown across from the Arnold Dock. The Large hot tub or tiny pool, is located on the roof and well maintained. The rooms are tiny. The fudge shop is located in the lobby which makes for a quick sample each time you pass by....

We had such a nice visit there! The weather was perfect and the people at the Murray are all so nice. They have great breakfasts and wonderful donuts. We also bought some of their fudge and it was amazing. Very nice rooms and a hot tub!

I stayed at the Murray for three nights unexpectedly as I was waiting for a special procedure on my dog at MSU. Touring around Michigan was boring, so I came to Mackinac where I summered in our family cottage for 28 years. I haven't been back for 20 years. I was delighted the staff at the hotel arranged a darling...

The place was so nice. The staff was so helpful. It's right across the street from getting off the ferry (very convenient) the next day when we checked out they let us store our luggage there so we can walk around the island. Will definitely stay there again on our next visit

We stayed at the Murray Hotel on Saturday, October 19, which turned out to be the last night they are open for the season. The check in was good - when I told the clerk I had a reservation, she asked if it was for "Smith". I said Yes! It appeared they were waiting for us and we were the...
