We made it a point to taste test all of the fudge before selecting the place we were going to buy our fudge from. Everyone has their favorite and ours is Murray's. By far the creamiest! The packaging was very elegant which was a plus as most of the fudge we purchased was for gifting!

I can't say enough about how great the staff at the Murray Hotel is. Last summer, my boyfriend and I planned to stay at my family's cottage in Petoskey for two nights and at the Murray the final night of our vacation. As soon as we got up north, I started feeling sick and after 2 ER visits, was admitted...

We've stayed at several locations when visiting the island. The Murray is small, but a great value when compared to the other hotels on the island. Service is wonderful and the rooms are clean. We will come back.

For a hotel that has the best fudge on Mackinac Island, the rest of the experience falls short. We had never stayed overnight on the island and took a chance on the Murray. We were familiar with the fudge shop, but we did not know that the hotel had to offer from a guest experience standpoint. The guest room was...

In a place where most lodging is out of a lot of people's budget, a room here allows you to get the feel of staying on the island without absolutley breaking you. It's an older property but is kept as neat as a pin. They offer some inexpensive meals here too, but only at lunch when I already had plans....

This hotel is a good value with an excellent location. However I had some major issues with it. -No matter what time of day it was you could hear pounding club music in our room, we could not figure out where it was coming from -Employees were very hit and miss, some very helpful, the rest resembling rude teenagers. Very...

This was my first time staying at the Murray. The hotel was very nice. The location is perfect - we loved being right on Main Street. The prices are very reasonable. The service was excellent. The porters were especially helpful. The morning we checked out, they held our luggage as we were going to do a carriage tour and the...

I have taken a group to Mackinac Island twice. Both times we stayed at the Murray Hotel. Both times the Murray hotel was easy to work with and so hospitable when we landed on the island - meeting us on the dock and sending us off when we left. Each room is different. The dinner and breakfasts were wonderful!!

My family and I make a trip Mackinac Island almost every summer. Staying at the Murray hotel is a staple. The staff is incredibly helpful. The rooms can be small however on the Island there is so much to do outside it doesn't bother us. There are food options within the hotel and nearby. We love this place and have...

The hotel makes you feel like you're back in time. I do find the rooms a bit clashed in their fabric choices and their wallpaper, but it adds to its old character. The staff was friendly. We were upgraded just because we were the first ones of the season to come (I think that's why). The room was basic. It...

“If you like having open windows, 2nd level inside room bit noisy as it stays open until 11pm.”
