Buses and Shuttles
Depending on when you arrive in St. Ignace or Mackinaw City, you may need to spend the night as the ferries stop operating in the early evening. It is always helpful to email/call the hotels for reservations to explain that you are a seasonal employee coming to work on Mackinac Island. Please note that even though these are small towns, some hotels might be a bit of a walk from the bus station and/or ferry docks. Taxis are not commonly available and would need to be scheduled in advance so be prepared to walk or ask the hotel for suggestions.
Mackinaw City Motels
Call or visit their website. These hotels will typically offer a discounted seasonal employee rate - but are a 10-15 minute walk from the bus station/ferry docks.

Mission Point Resort is located on the east side of Mackinac Island, meaning once you exit the ferry line you will turn right and follow the road until you see our property. We are a short 10-15 minute walk from the ferry docks. If you chose not to walk, there are typically taxis available, it cost approximately $8 for a taxi to Mission Point Resort. Currently, Taxis only operate on a reservations basis and they are very limited.
