“Memories to Last a Lifetime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

My whole family stayed here for a big get together. So, there was 9 of us! We all stayed in our own rooms, and then hung out together upstairs in the kitchen/family room area.

There was PLENTY of room, and I had a little one with me, so that says a lot since he is always on the go! Big leather couches, and a spacious island in the kitchen surrounding a gas stove that I could cook on for days. There is a spectacular view from the attached balconies that overlooks the river, and even had a friendly duck come say hello.

The rooms themselves were immaculate, with walk in dual-head showers (nice!), and even a fluffy robe on the hanger to pad around in.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, especially when we had some extra time to spend in the morning. The staff allowed us to lounge around PAST the check-out time in the family room so we could all fellowship together a little longer.

Overall, I recommend the Main Street Inn to anyone, whether you're looking for some quiet time to reflect over the water, or you and your friends and family want a place to get away that feels like home to get together. Which is what it was, home away from home!

We rented the Inn for the entire weekend of our daughter's wedding. What a fabulous place. We used the conference room for our rehersal dinner and the gathering room to wind up the night. The front desk personnel were promt and so very, very accomodating--even when we pushed the wrong button the on the television! She fixed it in a jiffy! The rooms are beautiful and several are quite large. Those that have balcony access overlook the Flat River where fish, ducks and geese are swimming all around. The Flat River Grill for lunch, dinner or cocktails is just steps over the river and the best breakfast around can be had at the Back Water cafe, just a one minute walk around the corner.

Room Tip: Rooms 5 & 6 overlook Main Street. Room 3 & 7 are HUGE!

My wife and I enjoyed staying here for three nights. I understand the hotel was renovated recently by a local businessman who operates Canfield Plumbing on Main Street a few block east of the Inn. When we were there, there was lively music and enjoyable for just a few hours in the evenings. Otherwise, our stay was very quiet and welcoming. The upstairs area was most impressive, with full kitchen facilities. A launderette was on the second floor, too. Very nice color scheme, done in yellows and whites for the walls and brown tile tiles for the floors and the walk-in shower. Plenty of windows gave the top floor a bright, cheerful feeling! All restaurants are within walking distance, and the "five-and-dime" is next door. Less than 45 minutes from Grand Rapids. Oh, don't forget to say "Hi" to the Bridge Troll. We can't say enough nice things about the staff.

My family and I stayed one night at the Main Street Inn (including 2 babies under the age of 4). From the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out, we were impressed. The employees were so friendly and helpful, the room was extremely clean, and the view from the back porch was priceless. After a peaceful night of sleep, I woke up early to drink coffee on the back porch and watch the sun rise. I spent an hour enjoying the view of the river that was filled with water birds (including a few great blue herons and egrets). Thank you for such an amazing experience and your hospitality (especially allowing the marathon runners to use the lobby shower after the race).

We stayed at the Main Street Inn for two nights while visiting family. The Inn sits in piers above the Flat River in downtown Lowell. Several shops and the best restaurant in town are within 100 yards. Very nice accomodations, huge beautiful restroom and shower, and very accomodating staff. A beautiful seating area and well-equipped kitchen is available for guest use on the second floor overlooking the river.

My family stayed at the Mainstreet Inn the weekend of January 14, 2012. It was very, very nice. The rooms were spacious, very clean, and the bathrooms are all redone in tile. Our rooms were on the first floor overlooking the river.

The town was very nice too. Very quaint. The only issue we had was that there were no stores open on Sunday. That would have been nice.

Would stay at this Inn any chance we get. Stay...... you won't regret it.

Room Tip: The room got a little hot during the night. I believe you can ask for a fan from the front desk tho...

This was my third stay at the Main Street Inn and it was fantastic! The staff was great as always, and the rooms are beautiful. I prefer the rooms in the back because the view on the water is breathtaking, however all the rooms are great and comfortable : comfortable beds, dual shower heads. Everything is clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, and the staff is beyond helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel and cannot wait for my fourth stay!
