The Inn at Stonecliffe
Ranked #11 of 12 Hotels in Mackinac Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

After a long day in carriages or downtown Mackinac, escape to a destination of tranquility with views of the bridge. Comfy room was actually suite sized, clean and recently updated. Fantastic shower. Fabulous grounds. If you can climb a flight of stairs, the mansion is the way to go!!!!

Stayed: June 2014, travelled as a couple

I visited this property for the first time in July of 2013. It was my 46th birthday weekend with just the "girls" and I loved every minute of it. While getting into the downtown area may seem a distance, we all enjoyed the quiet and beautiful surroundings away from the hustle and bustle. Staff were excellent, food was excellent and we lazed poolside! A definite do again!

I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The location is ideal. Tranquil and beautiful. The mansion is absolutely beautiful and the renovations are fantastic. This is my favorite part of the island bar none, and to be able to end my day at this fabulous hotel is just icing on the cake.

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the prix fixe dinner one night.We stayed in the Manor and rented a tandem bike for 4 hours one day & had a lovely time exploring. Our room was on the 3rd floor and climbing the stairs was tough after the long ride or for anyone with mobility issues, but it was worth the effort. Our room was large & lovely with 2 chairs giving us a view of the beautiful grounds, the bridge & the sunset. It would have been perfect if there had been a mini fridge, which they have in the rooms in the summer house. We were too early in the season for the outdoor pool which was being worked on. We prefer a firmer mattress and flatter pillow but all in all, a very pleasant stay on a lovely island with helpful staff.

The 5 of us had originally reserved 1 large suite for all of us for 3 nights, but, we loved it SO much we extended our stay! The ambiance at this wonderfully eclectic facility was exceeded only by their helpful, knowledgeable, friendly staff! The room was spacious AND spotless! The beds were very comfortable. The Executive Chef is amazing. We were worried about the trip to town for dinner every night, but, her food was SO delicious that we ate dinner and breakfast in their restaurant every day. The use of fresh herbs and fresh produce was a "holiday for my palate"! When we arrived, Johnathan was kind enough to literally drop what he was doing to give us a tour. Bill, Andrew and Jocelyn were our waitstaff in the restaurant and were prompt and thorough and extremely friendly. Daniel, who worked with me from reservation to checkout was phenomenal! He sure KNOWS customer service. Reaiah checked us out and was very nice as well. The General Manager Stephanie should be proud, she has a staff and facility that does nothing but speak fathoms of her obvious love for the hospitality industry! Thank ALL of you! We'll be back!

Room Tip: The corner suite of the mansion is amazing!!!!!

My wife and I booked our stay at Stonecliffe in October 2013 as part of our honeymoon, not knowing that Michigan would have one of the worst winters in recorded history. In late April, Dan contacted me about the reservation, because he didn't expect our room in the mansion to be ready for our honeymoon, and he offered a full refund, or an upgrade to a suit in the Summer House. The Summer House is nice, but I'm far more excited to stay at the mansion next year. We took the upgrade, and we loved it. The staff, from the maids to the front desk, were awesome. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay incredible. Every morning, the desk staff asked what our plans were, and offered suggestions to make our day better. They arranged taxi's when necessary, and made lunch/dinner suggestions. When our honeymoon was delayed a day, the hotel worked with us without charging us extra. All in all, this was an excellent experience.

We stayed at this hotel based on a friend's recommendation. My husband booked the "jacuzzi suite" with an inland view which on the website sounded nice - courtyard setting and lawn view between the summer house and the mansion. We also thought the jacuzzi would be great after biking 51 miles. The "inland view" was of the garbage dumpster (and whatever was behind the fence) and the front entry with all the carriage traffic. The website is really misleading. On top of this disappointment, we had no hot water. When we reported it, we were told it would come soon... many excuses. In fact we never had hot water that night or the next morning. So much for the nice jacuzzi room - we could have booked a bridge view room for the same cost and had a much better room. When we checked in and saw our room I went to the front desk to ask if there were any other rooms available. The person at the front desk was so rude - he said "we can't control the view ". Really? And no hot water was met with "we are trying and its because too many people checked in at once". Really??? This hotel is very expensive and this is no excuse at all. It would have been nice if someone would have offered a discount on our room due to the water situation - we booked a jacuzzi we couldn't even use. The comments below about the breakfast is true also - basically what you would get at the Super 8. Overall, a very disappointing stay - my first time to stay over on the island and I will never ever stay here or recommend to anyone. We have visited the Island many times in the past and will come again but not to this hotel.
