Reviewed June 30, 2012

We have been going to the Island for over 20 years and this was our first staying on the Island. We stayed 2 nights and were extremely pleased with our choice to stay at the Lilac Tree. The suite was beautifully decorated and layout allowed for privacy/quietness in bedroom. You could not have a better location right on the main street. Staff was excellent and always pleasant. We booked our next stay when we checked out!

Wonderful hotel for our family (2 adults, one teenager, one child). Queen Suite was clean, spacious and quiet overlooking the island (not facing the main street). Liked having the refrigerator, wet bar, and updated double sink vanity. The kids loved the nightly chocolates, milk, and cookies, and having two flat screen TVs. Staff was helpful and friendly. Appreciated the coupon pack for the island given how expensive everything is there. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed two nights with a family of 6.The first night was miserable because the a/c went out in the entire hotel and the room above us was awake until 3am.... you could hear every footstep. The second night was perfect. The hotel did give us a discount and free breakfast to compensate for our first night which was appreciated. Having a big family it was very nice to have a suite with a refrigerator. The kids loved the big jacuzzi tub. We had a "garden" view, which I had to laugh because it was of the alley behind the building and all you could see was another building. The location was awesome...walking distance to most everything.

Room Tip: Might want to try for lake /street view, and consider top floor.

It was our first time staying at the lilac tree, but not our first time staying on the island. This experience far surpassed our past one. The hotel was beautiful, comfortable and spacious. The location ideal! It was central to all activities but was very quiet and had a relaxing atmosphere. The staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful. There is no doubt where we will be staying the next time we visit Mackinac Island.

This was my first time staying at the Lilac Tree Inn. My group arrived earlier than the stated check in time by 3 hours but that was no problem and we were able to check right into our room!! A beautiful suite that was very tastefully decorated. The hotel is located right in the middle of downtown Mackinac Island making it very convenient. I will definitely book here again!

We try to visit Mackinac Island every year. We will only stay at this hotel. Very clean. The staff is incredibly kind. They serve complimentary coffee in the lobby each morning and evening. Each room has a nice size fridge. Love all the little things.

This quaint little spot is located literally in the center of the main drag on mackinac island. The staff is super courteous and willing to help with anything you need. In addition, they have a spa on site, so you can indulge a little if you choose. The rooms are spacious and actually very clean. The hotel seems well maintained, even if the decor is a bit dated.

The good thing is despite its location, once inside you feel completely at ease and away from the crowds. The noise does not permeate the interior and the hotel makes it a policy to specify quiet time hotel wide after 11 pm for those who like their sleep.

I enjoyed this hotel a lot and would totally consider staying there again. Chelsey and Nicki at the front desk were amazing to work with.
