“Wonderful and Charming Inn”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

The Inn on Mackinac was a superb place to stay! Located right on the Main Street, it had everything you would expect from a B&B and more. The breakfast spread was very extensive! There was: bacon, eggs, sausage, potatoes, french toast, waffles, bagels, oatmeal (and fixings), cereal, fruit, and of course tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc. Much more than I expected! During the day they put out platters of cheese and crackers, and pitchers of fresh lemonade, and at night they make chocolate chip cookies and deliver them to your room.

Our room was clean, spacious, and the toiletries they provided in the bathroom were Bath and Body Works brand. There are five floors, but there is an elevator for those who need it. On the third floor is a "heated spa pool" which was warm enough to swim in even though the temperature got down to 44 degrees the night we stayed. It was more like a pool sized hot tub, but it was fantastic!

I would definitely recommend the Inn on Mackinac to anyone going to visit the island! It was a beautiful place to stay, and in a fantastic location!

Room Tip: We stayed on the fifth floor and had wonderful views of the harbor and Main Street. Our turret suite...

If you are looking for a nice quint place to stay on the island away from the hustle and bustle, this is your place! It is located just outside of town but still within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. This was my first time staying on the island and I'm very happy I booked at the inn. The staff was very friendly and professional and accommodated all my needs. Very hot breakfast in the morning, and they even bring warm baked cookies in the evening. I would highly recommend staying here!

We just spent two nights at the Inn on Mackinac. This was our 20th time to visit the island and the second year in a row to stay at the Inn. We had a great time. The staff members were excellent to us and very accommodating-from the boat dock who carried our bags to the young women at the desk to other hotel workers; everyone was very friendly. Our room was exceptionally clean. The eating area is very inviting and had a variety of choices for breakfast. It was nice to have coffee, hot tea or hot chocolate available throughout the day.

The Inn on Mackinac is just far enough away from the downtown area to have a little less noise and people. The Inn has many interesting antiques, a very nice sitting area on the second floor, and a wrap around porch and a large hot tub located on the back of the hotel.

We will look forward to visiting the island again and to stay at the Inn on Mackinac.

Reservations made sight unseen and we were completely overwhelmed by the uniqueness of this establishment, the wonderful staff and helpful attitudes. The rooms were extremely clean, cozy and a lot of history to look over in the Inn. The breakfast buffet was incredible, away from the mainstream of traffic and delicious food. The pillows were a bit lumpy and the room we had could use a ceiling fan to circulate the air when the temperature is between the need for heat and air conditioning. Had the weather been warmer we would have used the porch and the beautiful spa on the third floor. We loved our experience and plan to return next year and bring the kids. Not a bad walk from downtown and considering the noise at night from the downtown activities, this Inn sits just far enough away to provide a solitude of peacefulness.

Room Tip: All are great, the turret rooms are a nice quite area, isolated from the others with a great view of...

We have stayed at the Inn on Mackinac Island many times. It could use updating, however, we find it charming just the way it is. The wrap-around porch is a favorite place to relax, read, and people watch. Fudge can be purchased on the lower level if your sweet tooth is calling. There is a lovely breakfast room with lots of delicious choices. It is far enough away from downtown to be quiet, but close enough to get there by bicycle in a few minutes. The price is less than most other B&B's on the island. A great place to take your family!

This is our place to stay when we visit the island. It is close enough to town for a nice walk, but far enough to miss most of that noise. The front veranda is a great place to sit and watch people pass by, and the spa pool located on the property is wonderful. The staff puts out cheese and crackers every afternoon, and warm cookies on the nightstand each evening. Truly a place to unwind and relax.
