“It really does live up to the fabulous reviews!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2010

We decided on a last minute trip to Michigan and wanted to stay at the Main Street Inn based on reviews. It did not disappoint. The staff was extremely helpful from start to finish. We booked a suite and it was beautifully decorated and so spacious. We did not expect the living room to be so grand. The location is perfect and convenient and we were also surprised with the beautiful view of the bay. Everything was even better than the photos on-line! We will definitely plan ahead next time to book a longer stay.

This is the second year that we have stayed at the Main Street Inn and Suites on Mackinac Island. We have stayed in numerous places ovewr the last 15+ years, but needed more room due to an increase in family size. They have reasonable rates for the island, they are centrally located, their staff is helpful and friendly. I would certainly recommend this hotel to any who travel to Mackinac Island.

This is our 3rd stay at this hotel during the yacht races and we were not disappointed. We splurged on a suite, which was money well spent. We enjoyed the extra room and view of Huron street. The beds are super comfortable, the hotel is still so clean and fresh. My only complaint is that the housekeeping this year, while good, was not exceptional as it's been in the past years I've stayed. Our last night we didn't get turn down service, and the regular coffee was never restocked after cleaning. I had to go down to the lobby and ask for coffee each day. Other years housekeeping left wine glasses in the room and made towel animals for the kids when they saw I had bought a bottle of wine, and seemed to notice that there were kids in the room. Other than these minor things, we were satisfied. Staff turnover is very high on the island, so some problems are understandable.

We stayed in a huge suite for our annual girls' weekend, and seven of us fit in the suite very comfortably. Everything was BEAUTIFUL--the room, view, entire facility...everything. The price was very reasonable for everything that we got--such a huge room and the perfect location! The staff was super friendly, and the dockporters did a fantastic job too. The beds were extremely comfortable, even the roll-away we used. Everyone slept really well. Everything was amazingly clean as well, and when we needed more towels late at night, the front desk staff person was so quick in meeting our needs. I highly recommend staying here because it's fantastic. It's a newer property so you don't have to deal with old, falling apart facilities--it's all so new! We loved it and can't wait to go back again and again.

Based on positive reviews here, we recently stayed at the Main Street Inn for our first trip to Mackinac Island. We were not let down. The location is perfect, right off the ferry dock and in the heart of the downtown area. We stayed in a deluxe standard room that faced out the back of the hotel, and though it did not feature a great view it was probably much quieter than rooms facing Main Street. The room was large, very clean, and cheerfully decorated. And turndown service each night included some of the Island’s fabled fudge, as well as a coupon at checkout for a free half pound on our way out!

While we would have loved to have stayed at the Grand Hotel, we figured we saved close to a thousand dollars staying at the Main Street Inn, and spending the afternoon at the Grand eating lunch and having drinks. Plus the Main Street Inn is much more convenient for taking a carriage tour, renting bikes, or trying one of the local restaurants.

Many of our friends on the east coast have sadly never been to Mackinac Island, or even heard of it. But we’ve sang the praises of the Island, and the Main Street Inn as the place to stay, since our return.

We were very pleased with Main Street Inn and Suites. It was in the perfect location, had large rooms, comfortable beds, pleasant staff, and nightly turn down service complete with complimentary fudge. The rates were very reasonable. Check-in and Check-out was quick and easy. The location was perfect---very close to the ferry docks and restaurants and shops. The room was large, clean, and nicely decorated. We will definitely stay here again.

I just returned from the Main Street Inn and Suites after our annual "girls weekend". This was our fifth stay there and as always it was excellent! We also appreciated the extra touches since this stay corresponded with a special birthday this year. The staff was also exceptional at addressing an issue we had with our room. As always the room itself was very neat, clean and tidy. In the past 20 years I have stayed at many of the other hotels and bed & breakfast places on the island but this is by far my favorite place. It is located in the center of town which makes it easy access to all of the restaurants, shops, and ferry locations. Mackinac Island itself is one of the most beautiful locations in Michigan and this hotel represents the feel of the island.
