“There is a reason its number one!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

I can't say enough about the staff of this hotel! My girlfriend and I stay for three nights in May and it was the best experience I've had in a long time. The girls at the front desk were very helpful with any of our questions and offered up plenty of things to do on the island. At one point when the front desk couldn't get a straight answer from a taxi dispatcher on the phone she went out into the rain to ask one on the street! Now that's service!
Another plus for this hotel is its location to the Shelper dock. We had plenty of luggage and even two bikes and we were able to walk the 300ft or so to our hotel unaided, that's how close it is. Also from our balcony we could look at how busy the ferry was at any given time with just a peek out the window :)
A bonus staying at this hotel is that you get a small piece of chocolate fudge at the end of the night with your turn down service. Which is great after a long day of bike riding on the island.
Again, great service, great location and after looking at all the options after arriving on the island we wouldn't go anywhere else!
Happy Trails

My husband and I spent three nights here for our 1 year wedding anniversary trip. He had been to the island before, but this was my first trip. We will never stay anywhere besides Main Street Inn! The staff was the friendliest I've ever come across. The turn down service and fudge delivery in the evening was such a nice touch. The view from the one bedroom suite (Room 209) was the best part. We had a view of the Shepler's ferries coming in, as well as all of Main Street. Our favorite part of each day we were there was sitting on our balcony in the evening, listening to the horses walk by. We're already planning a trip back in the fall. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money for one of the suites facing Main Street.

Rated number one on Trip Advisor is well deserved. So convenient to ferries. Check in was so pleasant and the desk staff was gracious, helpful and just enjoyable to be around. Very clean, very quiet, comfortable, turn down and chocolate was special. We will recommend to anyone coming to the island to try for Main Street Inn and Suites. Just as we were I don't think you will be disappointed.

Room Tip: Suite 209 was great

Since we had stayed at the Main Street Inn and Suites four years ago when visiting Mackinac Island and had such a wonderful experience, we decided to stay here again, and again for the past several years. We have stayed at several other hotels on the island, but find ourselves coming back to this hotel time and time again. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms clean and immaculate. Close to everything downtown, this hotel can not be beat.
We have with children and without, both equally satisfying. If you have not tried this hotel, you are missing out.

Perfect location, right near the ferry docks and in the middle of town so close to food, stores and tour departures. Clean, plenty of room and a very comfortable bed for a nice price. What more could you ask for?

Room Tip: Some people complain about noise if you face the street, but we had no problems with a street-front...

This is my favorite place to stay on Mackinac Island! It is a boutique hotel with only 18 rooms, so service is very personal!! I love the decor and the beds are SO comfortable. I can't wait to return!!

This was such a great place to stay. The price was great. The beds were good and the bathroom was pretty and the shower had great water pressure. They even have turn down service with fudge. The staff were all so nice and helpful. The price was great for such a nice place.

Room Tip: Book early these rooms go fast.
