Read the press release about the new "Luxury Hotel" on Mackinac Island and decided to give it a try. We have stayed in practically every hotel/B&B on the Island and have many,many favorites. Well, our first impression, was that we had just entered the food court at the Mall. I guess we weren't the only ones. We had reserved a deluxe, balcony waterfront room on the second floor. We entered a dull looking room with very uncomfortable/drab furniture we dubbed "the waiting room" because it reminded us of a Dr's waiting room. Very few decorative features. I don't know who was in charge of decorating the rooms, but they failed in capturing the feel of the Island. We also found the configuration of the suite strange, the bedroom is adjacent to the balcony. This makes it very difficult if you are an early riser and want to grab a coffee and sit out on the balcony without waking others. All the other hotels with balcony suites on Mackinac have the sitting/living room area next to balcony. There wasn't any table/desk with chairs to sit and have a snack/etc.

The bathroom was huge, but, again, dull décor. We received one tiny shampoo for 2 people for 5 days and they never replenished them. We had less than a half a roll of toilet paper left and they did not leave one after they cleaned the room. We had to call for shampoo and toilet paper. Never had this problem at other "luxury" hotels/B&Bs on the Island. We also had problems with air/heat. We did not have any control of the temperature in our room. It was either to cold or to warm. Our remotes weren't working properly and we noticed that they were installing temperature wall controls in other rooms(this should of been done prior to opening).

We went to the "deluxe" continental breakfast the first morning and never went back. Big disappointment.

The Staff were friendly. However, our friends staying at the Chippewa, left us a message at the front desk, which we never received.

We did enjoy our balcony and the beautiful views. Also liked the bike storage room downstairs.

I don't think we will be staying at the Bicycle Street Inn again. . .there are far to many wonderful, charming places on the Island to choose from.

Stayed here in May after reading about this new hotel, the first one in supposedly decades to be built on the island. Anyhow, since everything was new, what could be wrong, right? Room was large enough for two people to comfortably move about which was good. No place to hang towels, pillows are way too large to be comfortable and the view (and smell) from our room of a horse rental barn left much to be desired. I can only imagine what it will be like during warm or hot days! We could hear the security fencing , which is used on the street level shops, being opened and closed. A minor detail, I know, but odd that a new hotel would not take this into consideration when being built. We didn't spend much time in the room as we have always spent as much time exploring the island as we could while there. After all, why stay anywhere like Mackinac Island if all you want to do is stay inside? The over all look from street level is totally NOT Mackinac Island. Our first impression, and the first impression of others we met during our stay, was reminiscent of any food court in any shopping mall anywhere. And when we saw it at night with the fencing drawn closed we felt like we were actually walking through a mall. Definitely NOT A MACKINAC EXPERIENCE and so unlike the other hotels and B&B's we've stayed in over the years. It looks out of place, like someone is trying to change the look of the downtown instead of using some imagination to tactfully blend in. Pricey, but everything on the island is and the supposed "deluxe" breakfast was nothing more than the basic continental breakfast offered at most places on the island. Will not stay here again or recommend it to our like-minded friends who want to 'feel' the island for its charm and history, not to eat at a mall food court! This place, although new, comes with no more room amenities than some of the other hotels, ranks near the bottom of our list when it comes to cozy and/or charming and most definitely does not make us want to stay there again, due in large part to the feel of being in a modern day mall which just happens to have hotel rooms above it.

We stayed at the Bicycle Street Inn & Suites in June 2013. The room was nicely decorated. The beds were comfortable but the pillows were "over full" which made it a bit uncomfortable. We chose this hotel for the location, the view, the price, the private balcony and the walk in shower.
Loved the view, loved the balcony, loved the shower. The location was very convenient. We loved that the door to the balcony could be opened with a screen door. When the doors were closed most of the noise from the street was not noticeable. There was an AC/heat thermostat in the bedroom and the living room which was nice. We liked that there was a door between the two rooms and a TV in both rooms.

Here's what we didn't like about the hotel.
-- There was only one night stand which was between the beds. It would be nice to have a stand
on the other side of each bed for the person sleeping on that side.
-- The hotel advertised a "deluxe continental breakfast" included with the room but we didn't see
anything deluxe about it. Usually with a deluxe continental breakfast you at least get some
scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, and waffles...none was on this breakfast. This was one of
the reasons we booked this hotel. When paying $300+ per night, you expect more selections
on a "deluxe continental breakfast". We were so disappointed in the breakfast selections that
we ate at the Chuckwagon the next morning. After we left the island, we stayed at a Marriott
hotel and received a much better breakfast and paid 1/3 of the price for the room.
-- The entertainment during the day on the first floor can be a bit noisy if you are trying to get
some rest on the second floor.
-- There was no ice machine on the second floor. We had to go to the 3rd floor to get ice which
was very inconvenient. We had a Coke machine...it would be better to have an ice machine.
-- The staff were "cordial" but not really friendly.

We wanted our 40th wedding anniversary weekend to be a special one, so decided to spend it on Mackinac Island. We already spent one anniversary at the Grand Hotel in a substandard room, so didn't want to do that again. Having heard about the new Bicycle Street Inn and Suites which would open in May of 2013, we decided to take a chance on that and weren't disappointed! We had a balcony suite which was just perfect for catching some early rays of sun which warmed us in spite of chilly spring temperatures. The view was great too, overlooking Main Street with all the horses and bicyclists and beyond that, the Straits of Mackinac. Also, the receptionists were super friendly and the lobby and overall décor were beautifully enhanced by exquisite shops and a Sanders where we purchased special treats for our grandkids. The next time we visit Mackinac Island, you'll find us at the Bicycle Street Inn!

I hate to be the lone dissenter, but after staying for 2 nights I was not impressed. The room (I had a balcony room overlooking the water) was not spacious. The beds were comfortable, but the chair and couch were not. In the seating area was a couch and coffee table which is totally lacking if you actually want to have a conversation. Definitely needed at least one additional chair. The bathroom was huge, however there was not even enough room in the corner of the tub to put a bottle of shampoo. No place to hang towels. No turndown service, no fudge on the pillow. We used the coffee the first day and it was never refilled. The color scheme was depressing and drab. The lower level shops are very nice and the continental breakfast OK, however when they open and close the "fencing" around the shops in the morning and at night, the noise is pretty bad when you're on the 2nd floor. I thought I would give this a try since it is new, but next year, I'll be back at The Main Street Inn.

SuiteDreams2013, Public Relations Manager at Bicycle Street Inn & Suites and Waterfront Collection, responded to this reviewResponded 19 June 2013

Thank you for your review. We are sorry you found your rooms "not spacious", and the color scheme "depressing and drab". The room type you had is available in three sizes only. The smallest is 507 sq ft, the next size up is 593 sq ft, and the largest is 665 sq ft. All water suites include a walk-out balcony which adds approximately 50-70 more sq ft of room. Our accommodations are among the most generously sized units available on the island and will sleep up to 6 persons comfortably. Our room colors are a palette of bright, aqua blue draperies and bed skirting, white comforters, and rich olive green, gold, and blue duvet covers, neutral wall colors and coordinated carpeting that complements our bedding collection. The central skylit atrium brightens the guest floor hallways on our upper levels with the blue sky above, and even on cloudy days will highlight our deep blue hallway carpeting with tapestry like charcoal overlay pattern, mahogany wainscoting, and iron balcony railing with mahogany trim. As a brand new construction hotel, we used state of the art sound suppression systems between rooms, floors, and ceilings to keep guest rooms quiet and private. Our heating and air conditioning units are virtually silent. Some guests like to hear the clip clop of horses going by on Main Street, while others prefer peace and quiet. With our sliding screen doors leading out to our balconies, guests have an option of immersing themselves in the sounds of island activity, or almost complete silence by keeping the thick glass paneled doors shut. Yes it's true that when the Main Level shops open at 9 am and close at 9 pm, the sound of the shopkeepers' mesh steel security curtains can be heard in the courtyard and may be discernible in the balcony above. We were not aware that this brief, twice daily occurrence was considered "pretty bad", although we acknowledge it is not something one would anticipate hearing, since our first floor retail setting is so unique. We will definitely review that and thank you for pointing that out. We are sorry to hear our housekeeping staff failed to refill your Wolfgang Puck coffee the next morning, perhaps you had a do not disturb door hanger when they came by and missed you? In any case, our guests should feel free to ask our very friendly staff for refill packets of this delicious premium coffee anytime of the day or night. We will accommodate any request to the best of our ability, including adding an additional chair to your room if needed. We do hope you try us again, we look forward to serving you with the greatest possible cheer.

Sincerely,
Bicycle Street Inn & Suites
