I came into town on business for the week (Ionia) and noticed the lack of larger or nicer hotels in the area. I decided to extend my search from Ionia to East Grand Rapids and somehow was lucky enough to find this little gem on the river. The staff is super nice and very helpful. My room (#4) Was roomy...

Easy to find location, downtown Lowell, on the river. We stayed in room 4, which was a smaller room, but very similar in size to other historic hotels where we've stayed. While this looks like a historic hotel, its really very new with modern conveniences, like large showers, flat screen televisions and Keurig coffee makers. Our room opened up to... More

What a beautiful location on the Grand River in a really town. A great place to go to get away from it all. The staff was great, the room was beautiful and clean. It was easy to get around the Lowell and to get into Grand Rapids if needed.

Our hotel stay was wonderful. The owners of this lovely Inn have thought of everything. The rooms are well appointed with very nice furnishings. The bathrooms were better than some of the better hotels I have stayed at. The quaintness of this Inn overlooking the Flat River gives a wonderful ambiance experience. The Flat River Grill, which is less than... More

Last weekend my extended family filled the Main Street Inn to attend my daughter's wedding at Fallasburg Park. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable! The large upstairs open concept kitchen and living area provided the perfect place for the family and bridesmaids to gather that morning for brunch and wedding primping. The inn is incredible, the staff wonderful and the... More

We travel a lot and try to stay in places that are not the typical chain hotels/motels. This was a great find! Comfortable spacious rooms, with balcony access to sit out over the river. The staff was so accommodating! It was our first time to this area, and they answered all of our questions and quickly handled any special requests.... More

When a southerner from the deep south travels one of the most difficult aspects can be dealing with the judgments of society. I am cautious with people for that reason. As a result of those experiences I measure a location by its inhabitants and not their structures. I have had the opportunity in my work to stay at some wonderful... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Main Street Inn. It felt almost like being on a houseboat, the river is literally underneath your room. The rooms are immaculate and very comfortable, with large bathrooms and wonderful showers. Though the Inn fronts Main St, the rooms facing the river are very quiet and peaceful. We had a lot of opportunity to... More

Thank you so much for this wonderful review!! We are glad that you had such a great time at the Inn and in our little town. It certainly is fun to see the rowing team practice on the river. That is brand new this year. Please come back and see us again! More

Would I return to the Main Street Inn when visiting my son in nearby Grand Rapids. Yes. But with one caveat -- I'd choose a particular room. We recently stayed 2 nights and had to change rooms for the 2nd night's stay. The first room's mattress kept both my husband and myself awake due to its very very soft nature.... More

Thank you for your review! I am glad that our staff was exceptional. We do have some amazing people that work here! :) I am, however, sorry that you could not find a bed that was to your liking. Our guests have such a wide range of bed preferences that we made sure to get a variety of beds. Hopefully... More

Stayed for business purposes, will stay again when I go back to visit family in the area. Late arrival due to unexpected change in plans and they were welcoming and even let me do some laundry at 11pm. Would be nice to have a continental breakfast - and more hangers in the closet, but the size of the rooms, the... More
