“Better than Grand!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Front desk staff very helpful, as was the porter who took care of our bags from/to the boat. Central on the main street, so made it very easy to get around and back to the hotel from anywhere. Room 310, had small balcony on street, plus a large living room and a separate room with beds. Very good mattresses on beds, so great night sleep. Got a breakfast included at a place down the street, which was a bonus. Having been to both, I'd stay here again instead of the Grand--you'll be much happier and have $$$ leftover to boot!

Room Tip: 4th floor is top floor and the one to choose. We stayed on 3rd and had a 'bigfoot' above us...

Our room was clean, the bed comfortable and view very nice. Overall, our stay was lovely and I would choose this hotel again. My only complaints were that the walls were quite thin; we could hear the jacuzzi tub above us being filled and turned on and the ice machine was just outside our door which, as it happened, was right next to the bed as well and all throughout the night the ice machine would spit out a few cubes at a time. This wasn't bad enough to complain about though and if you are a heavy sleeper you probably won't even notice. The balcony was a lovely feature as well and everyone at the service desk was super friendly! I accidentally left my camera charger in the room and they made every effort to return it to me before I left the island. A great hotel for a great price!

Room Tip: If you are a meat eater you HAVE to go to the Chophouse on the main street just a short walk away. O...

My husband and I stayed at the Lilac Tree Suites & Spa and absolutely loved it! We will definitely be back! We did not have reservations when we arrived and Bart, the Front Desk Manager, was awesome! He booked us a room after letting us choose between two, and was so kind and informative and had great suggestions! We had a beautiful suite with a separate area with a couch and flat screen t.v. The bedroom was elegantly decorated, large, exceptionally clean and relaxing with another flat screen t.v.! The hotel was centrally located amid all the shops and restaurants on Main Street, yet very quiet. We truly are going to make this a once-a-year special trip and stay again at the Lilac Tree. And we can't wait!

Room Tip: We had Room 205 which was so elegant with yellow walls and old fashioned quilts on the bed. Next ti...

From check-in to check-out, our stay at The Lilac Tree Inn was quite lovely. Room was clean, staff courteous and the location was perfect. There was no problem leaving our luggage by the desk as we had a later ferry to the mainland. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

This is not our first stay at the Lilac Tree on Mackinac Island and it will not be our last. The rooms are all beautiful. We always stay on the 3rd or 4th floor close to center so we have a waters view and can also watch the fudgers walking below. The staff are all so friendly and helpful.

Stayed again at The Lilac Tree for two nights. Always a special hotel and special staff. Room with balcony on 3rd floor was clean, bright, well maintained. Staff is so accommodating and pleasant! Good location in town for shopping & restaurants.

Great view and nice room. Two main complaints: 1) Why put your nicest room next to the ice machine? (And this seems to be true on every floor, because we moved floors during our stay.) It was loud and annoying. Why do people need ice that late at night anyway? 2) Why put the bed closer to the hallway than the living area? We noticed that most (if not all) the rooms on the water side of the hotel had the living area in the back and the bed next to the door. Would make more sense to put the bed in the back because it's quieter back there. Maybe then we wouldn't have to listen to people at the ice machine.

Otherwise, we enjoyed the Lilac Tree. Housekeeping brought us oreos and milk every day. Whatever we needed (wine cork, extra pillows, a plate, etc.), the hotel staff brought up for us, no matter how odd the request. We also liked the location--you could walk everywhere.

Room Tip: When you call, ask how close your room will be to the ice machine. Stay far away from it, even if it...
