Chateau Lorraine
Ranked #14 of 14 Mackinac Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The place itself is charming. It could use a coat of paint on the outside to spruce up the curb appeal, but it is otherwise very nice. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean, and we were fortunate enough to stay in a room with a kitchenette. Bonus!!

My only complaint was the breakfast portion of the meal. Other B&Bs that I have stayed in offer a very nice, home-cooked breakfast breakfast in the morning. This place offered nothing more than a self-serve scenario with a few pastries, mini muffins and hard boiled eggs.

Room Tip: Ask for the one with the kitchenette. :)

Never met owner during stay. No ice, no shampoo just a Cake of soap. No help planning our tour of island. No help with anything. A below average B and B. Limited service.

We stayed in a corner room at the Chateau. It was nice. We shared a bathroom with 3 other rooms which was not a problem at all. Never had to wait for a bathroom. The room has television with lots of stations. The only thing we noticed was the walls seem thin and could hear people in the other room. We didn't really spend too much time during the day in the room. It has an air conditioning unit but didn't need to use it. The breakfast is really great with lots of choices. They had bread, grapefruit, quiche, hard boiled egg, cereal, oatmeal, orange juice, and I think some other stuff. You can't beat the price on Mackinac and the location is great, just off the main street. Actually, the whole island turned out to be very affordable. Sweatshirt for $15, $2.90 for a large ice cream cone, <$10/plate for dinner at a restaurant, $10 to go around the island on a tandem bike, horse taxi for $4.75, etc. Even the Grand Hotel offers all-you-can-eat lunch for $40/plate, which isn't that bad because it includes tax and tip along with access to other parts of the hotel.

My wife and I had the distinct pleasure of staying in a room with a private bath and I must write to say how pleased we were. We would have had to pay 2-3x as much at the Grand Hotel, and I can tell you from experience most of their rooms are not any different. There you pay for for the opulance in the common rooms and for the meals.
You absolutely cannot beat this location. It is a block from downtown and only a short walk. It's so much quieter here. We can't wait to come back in the future with the money we've saved we can stay longer.

I traveled with my son-in-law, daughter and their two boys, sixteen and
two. We stayed for ten days and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff
was very helpful and friendly, the breakfast was wonderful, the rooms
were clean and comfortable. We shared two bathrooms on the third floor and had no problems. The wallk from the dock was about five minutes, if you
have a lot of luggage, have a porter bring it because the hotel is up
a little hill. My daughter loves to play the piano so to find the Grand
Piano from "Somewhere in Time" in the Victorian Living room was a real treasure. If
you like staying at Holiday Express, this may not be the hotel for you, it is Victorian,
quiet and peaceful. There is so
much to do on Mackinac Island and you are close to everything, hopefully, we will
return soon and we will stay at Chataeu Lorraine.

WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!
I have stayed at Chateau Lorraine several times over the past couple of years. Each time has been a memorable occasion. The Innkeepers and staff go out of their way to make guests happy and comfortable. The Inn is beautiful, the food is great and the rooms are lovely and relaxing. You do have to book early even a year in advance to get certain rooms. We have already booked for Lilac Festivak and July 4th weekend.
