For the cost of this hotel, it was below average of chain hotels I stay in while traveling. Nothing was special or wonderful during our stay. Will not return. The hotel needs to remember its roots of excellence. It has to make people feel special not just average.

It's always treat to stay at the Grand Hotel! We loved our room, the food and the service. Although we stayed only for one night, my kids and I agreed: Dinner and breakfast were two of the best meals of our lives! When you're on Mackinac Island, stay at the Grand.

We loved the island and the hotel had a lot of positives. Maybe some of the shortcomings are COVID related. Maybe not. Check in was horrendous. Long line and only two clerks. Took us 30 mins to get to front of line. Our room...what can you say except OMG. Bright green floral and outdated. You can tell at one time about 30 years ago, it was nice. But it sadly needs updating. The view was amazing. But the noise level was off the charts our entire stay. We called three times to complain but nothing ever changed. It was difficult to get any rest. We were constantly frustrated. There was NO HOUSEKEEPING and we were there for 6 nights. They claim this was COVID related. But come on. No amenities in the room. Refrigerator was old and dirty and moldy. Would not use. No robes or slippers. Plenty of storage though. The loudness of the doors slamming, guests tromping overhead, conversations, etc were just too much to overcome. Management did not address it. The highlight was the food. We had great meals in the dining room. Service a little lacking (the staff preferred to set tables for the next day rather than focus on guests dining.) But they were nice and friendly. Dessert menu never changed. After dinner coffee was great! We dined at the Woods and the Jockey Club. Both good meals but the Woods was more trouble than it was worth. We were seated 45 mins AFTER our reservation time! We really enjoyed everything about the Jockey Club. Mask wearing was enforced pretty good. Lots of hand sanitizers around. But the age of the property makes it always seem a little dirty. Again time for some major updates! Would we return? Probably not. Six days was probably too much.

The Grand Hotel is a living historical hotel. We felt like we were sent back in time to the 1800s. The food and service were superb ! We felt like we were living the Somewhere In Time Movie that was filmed on the property. We highly recommend staying here.
